    18inch SATA 6Gbps Cable w/Locking Latch - UV Green

    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.

    better AHCI w these cables

    Pros: cheap! Better performance that the old OEM red ones.

    Cons: Delivery took a week.

    Gigabyte claims they didn't guarantee I could use [Kingwin] mobile racks for SATA drives w GA990FX Gaming, tho I've used 2 other GA mobos for years w no problem. So I bot into monoprice's ad that their 6Gbps cables were different - made for higher data rates. Less than $1, I bot 6. Changed them all out. Now 2 WDs, 1 Hitachi & 1 Seagate SSHD will hot plug in any of 4 mobile rack positions, but 6 other Seagates will not. Very consistent. Maybe it's SATA2 drives vs SATA3. No, all these drives are from 2009 or so - SATA2. So these green cables improved the situation. There is in fact, something to them. If the Seagates had worked, I'd have given a rating of 5.

    Pros: Did what it's supposed to do, Yeah

    Cons: none

    So I had ordered a Samsung 850 Pro SSD which needs a 6G cable and my older (5 year) system only used a 3G so it wasn't using it's full potential. So instead of doing a complete reformat of the system and then I was told by a computer guy that it might not still work because of the older Mother Board it was best to just use the cable so it would up the speed from 3G to around 4.9Gigs, this did improve the transfer rate better than the older 3G so while I'm not getting the full use out of the SSD at least it works faster and really faster than the old 1TB that is older.
    Buy 1 try it out it's only 2 Dollars.............M

    Pros: Quality, clips, color

    Cons: Wish I would have went with the 36" cables for my server case.

    Cables worked as the should. The latches are solid and the cables are well made.
