    24inch SATA 6Gbps Cable w/Locking Latch - UV Blue

    With Locking Capability
    6GB Maximum transfer rate
    Hot-swap capability
    Thinner Cable construction compares with ATA
    Locking latch connector guarantees proper connection to device
    Locking Latch connector is compatible with non-locking connector
    Background:
    Serial ATA (SATA) replaces Parallel ATA (PATA, a.k.a. IDE) as the new standard for high speed, reliable data transfer between your computers motherboard and storage drives.  SATA provides faster data transfers, less clutter due to a more compact cable, leading to better in-case air circulation and ability to hot swap connections.
    First generation SATA is generally referred to simply as SATA, but is also known as SATA 150 or SATA 1, has a thoughput of 1.5 gbit/s.  It is an internal interface that uses "L" type connectors.  They are referred to as "L" connectors because if you look at the female connector head on, it has a sideways "L" shaped slot.  The male connector has an "L" shaped tongue.
    Second generation SATA is known as SATA  3 Gbps but commonly referred to as SATA 2 and sometimes SATA 300.  It supports a 3.0 Gbps transfer rate and also uses the "L" type connector.  SATA 2 cables are backward compatible with first generation SATA devices.  However, maximum throughput will be limited to the least common denominator.
    To go with the newer SATA interface, SATA drives usually employ a new 15 pin power connector as oppose to the older 4 pin Molex power connectors used on older system.  However, some drives will have both types of connections for ease of installation into legacy systems.
    Here's where it can get confusing.  For use with external devices, eSATA was developed with a completely different type of connector.  eSATA uses "I" (letter i) type connectors because, as before, if you look at the connector straight on, there is an "I" shaped slot or tongue.  Not to be confused with SATA 1 (#1) which some manufacturers will label SATA I (roman numeral i) which tends to confuse some users.  So a cable that is labeled as having type "I" connectors are for eSATA and not SATA 1 cables. 
    eSATA has a maximum bandwidth of 6.0 gbit/s, same as SATA 3.  But along with the new connector type, it also calls for a shielded cable.  Though it has a faster transfer speed than USB 2.0 and Firewire 400/800 it has a shorter maximum range of 2 meters.

    No latches
    Monoprice comes through with serviceable products at very reasonable prices, but this one is missing the latches it is supposed to have. Since I needed it, I simply used it without the advertised latching feature.

    PROS: Cable works properly, carries signal..

    CONS: Although advertised "w/locking Latch" the cable I received had no locking latches on either end.

    Good Product
    The cable works great. Locking feature works great. Price is unbeatable. I was hoping the blue would be slightly darker but I will be closing up the case so no one else will see this therefore, not a big deal at all.

    PROS: Exactly as described

    CONS: Slightly lighter blue than I was hoping for.

    They did not cheap out on these SATA cables! Locking latch is very sturdy and the overall build quality is great. I bought these at a bunch of different lengths and 24" is more than enough to do some tidy wiring in an ATX board/case.

    PROS: - Great Quality All around

    CONS: - None

    To: Anonymous from San jose, CA
    Anonymous was trying to use an internal cable for an external application. Reading the description clearly states this is an "L" connector (used inside your computer between your motherboard and hard drive), not an "I" connector (eSATA, e - for external use only).

    PROS: Great cable at a great price.

    CONS: None.

    Wrong configuration of SATA male plug
    The SATA plugs on this cable did not fit into the back of my external hard drive and DVR. It looks like their shaped was altered just enough during the manufacturing process to prevent them from sliding into the SATA receptacle. I ended up purchasing a more expensive cable elsewhere, and its plugs fit perfectly. However, I had no problem returning the first one to MonoPrice. Generally I have found MonoPrice's service to me excellent.
