18inch SATA 6Gbps Cable w/Locking Latch - Red

Each major revision of the Serial ATA interface specification has doubled the maximum data transfer rate. The latest SATA Revision 3.0 allows for data transfer speeds of up to 6 Gbps.

While the cables for all three revisions appear to be similar and will physically fit into the connectors on all SATA drives and controllers, the higher data transfer rate of SATA 6 Gbps requires higher quality materials and closer tolerances than the previous two revisions required.

Monoprice SATA 6 Gbps cables are certified to provide maximum speeds from your SATA system, up to 6 Gbps when used with equivalent devices and controllers.

Each end of this internal cable features a straight connector with an attached locking latch, to ensure that your connections do not come loose due to movement or vibration.

Note that SATA 6 Gbps cables are backwards compatible and can be used with SATA 3 Gbps and SATA 1.5 Gbps devices. However, the data transfer of the SATA subsystem will be limited to that of the slowest device. So, for example, if a SATA 6 Gbps cable is connected to a SATA 3 Gbps drive and a SATA 1.5 Gbps controller, the drive will be limited to a transfer rate of 1.5 Gbps.

Works The Way It Should

Pros: Works great.

Cons: None

I plugged it in to a new SSD and the other end into the motherboard and it worked. What else can be said. I chose red and it looks nice compared to the other black and grey cables.

Good cable but not as pictured

Pros: What can I say, It's a SATA cable and it connects SATA drives to SATA ports and allows data to travel back and forth.

Cons: The locking tab as pictured is curved back into the connector, but as received it comes straight back and sticks out so that when connecting them to a SATA header, the upper connectors shell snags on the lower connectors locking tab.
The only way to insert them into stacked headers is to start the lower connector but don't fully seat it. Then the upper connector can then be inserted and it will push the lower connector along with it.

Having said that, it's still a good cable and it does what it was meant to do.

These are great!

Pros: *The red color is a true red.
I've purchased SATA cables before that were kind-of red.
This red matches the theme in my computer.
*The clips are black! They are just as sturdy as ones with black connections & chrome clips. I hated the chrome clips on other SATA cables. These are BEAUTIFUL

Cons: No right angle option for this length
No 6 inch option for this color

Monoprice to the rescue for some computer cables needed in my build!

18inch SATA 6Gbps Cable w/Locking Latch - Red

Pros: -The locking clips.
-The color because it makes it easier to see in any case.
-A tad shorter than what I had without the locking clips.
-I wanted to locking clips because my old cables don't have them and they keep moving even though I have not had any problems yet. The clips are a nice lock now.

Cons: -Still too long for my mini itx case.
-I would be nice if they had these in shorter lengths like the 10 inch below.
-I wanted to check out the right angle, but they were out, so that's why I got these.
-The speed is not labeled on these like my new motherboard sata cables. It's definitely nice to see that.

Not bad. They seem to work. I would add a picture up but there's no option here.

Pros: Inexpensive, nice latches, solid feel, bright colour.

Cons: None

What else is there to say? These cables do the job. Zero issues. Used red and blue to make the connections inside the case easier to distinguish.
