    36inch SATA 6Gbps Cable w/Locking Latch (90 Degree to 180 Degree) - Silver

    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
    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.

    Good color
    Various lengths
    Locking connector

    Cons: None that I have seen so far

    I haven't got around to installing these yet, but they came quick, and look like good quality. The color is nicer than I was anticipating, too. I'm happy!

    Pros: Fast Delivery, Good Price, with option for local pickup.

    Cons: Product Description

    The only suggestion I have is with the description. Maybe it is because I'm not a PC technician.. When I read 90 degrees to 180 degrees, I thought it meant that the plug could be turned from 90 degrees to 180 degrees. I had a hard time for it to fit inside the chassis with the 90 degree plug. I added an additional harddrive to my PC and replaced the old SATA cable. Now I have the 90-degrees plug on the board and the 180 on the harddrives. I wouldn't be able to put the outer panel back if I had the 90 on the harddrives.
