      FIrst I purchased this out of desperation because there was nothing else available and no computer store near me. So I would not recommend buying this if you have some time and can look elsewhere. There are 2 design flaws to this cable that I've found, one is not a deal breaker but the second one is. Maybe this is just my case and how the hard drive has to be installed but when using this cable, the right angle connector is upside down. So when I plug it in, the cable goes up and then has to bend back to connect to the motherboard. I don't know if this is due to the hard drive installation being upside down or what but it is annoying. The second flaw has to do with the connectors not being square and a little wider than the actual SATA connectors on the hard drive and motherboard. It works fine for the motherboard because the ports have a little bit of a gap between them but on the hard drive is another story. When I plug in the data cable and the power cable, it is very difficult to get both installed. I had to force it due to the little bump out on this cable. I hope this doesn't cause any issues but I'm curious why it was built that way. I have bought several other SATA cables from other sources and they fit perfectly because the connector head is square and not this little oblong thing that this cable has.

      Unfortunately this was not a part I needed, but I didn't realizeve it until I had already used it and thrown out the packaging. I don't remember the exact/ correct number butI think this cord does up to 150mb when i need something that did 3gb minimum. I'm new to building computers, and I understand that it was my error, but it isn't listed on the box what the transfer speed is, or it wasn't obvious enough. I saw "sata" cable and thought it was what i needed. It wasn't until i tried to figure out why my hard drives and disk drives were failing that I realized it was the cable and not everything else. Then it took me a while to figure out the cable wasn't 3gb or 6gb when i went to research it because it isn't clearly stated. In conclusion, I think the speed connection should be more apparent on the packaging and in the description. Side note, even though online it said they were in stock in store, each store I went to said they didn't have it, so I had to order it online for in store pick up, and they went into the stock room and got it for me. It's kind of inconvenient b/c i had to wait half an hour for the confirmation and pay online with my card when I intended on using cash.

      This cable is the most pathetic and useless design I've ever seen. The picture is a perfectly accurate representation of the cable, which means the "head" of the plug is VERY wide. You cannot connect the 90 degree angled end to the hard drive or ssd because it overlaps with even the slimmest SATA power cable - meaning you can't plug power into your drive if you use this cable, pretty much defeating the purpose of either cable. If you use the 90 degree end on the motherboard connector, it may conflict with other ports on your MOBO. The straight connector end isn't much better - it JUST BARELY fits with SATA power connected to a SSD or HDD. I will never buy another one of these and will be replacing this one with a real SATA cable ASAP. Also, at nearly $9 for one, these are absurdly expensive by today's standard. Custom sleeved SATA cables only cost $12-$15 apiece.

      SATA Cable

      I was getting my old "backup" computer repaired at Best Buy, trying to install a newer, bigger hard drive, in an older HP machine, to go from a 2Tb HD to a 4Tb data HD. Because the native Win 7 OS on that machine would not recognize larger than 2Tb HD's, they tried but could not clone the new drive to get my Windows 7 OS to move to the new drive, and to get it to work in the older HP environment. The tech had a creative solution and said he would try adding this PNY internal Solid State HD to the computer box, and then put the start up files, & Win 7 OS, on the SSD HD. That Worked. What is very cool about the Tech. doing that, was the side benefit of a much more rapid start up, when I turn that computer on now. It used to take ~10 minutes or longer to get this older HP CPU started, since it is normally kept turned off. Now it starts up and is ready to use in about 2 minutes...... very impressive. This SSD HD was not very expensive, and was a creative solution to upgrading an older computer. The tech needed to hook up the new SSD HD via a new SATA Cable, to an open SATA cable port in my CPU box, so he sold me this SATA cable, and it works fine, and was inexpensive, and does the job.

      It only got 4 stars, not because of the cable, but what it took to get it, my only concern about the cable is that according to the packaging, it's data transfer rate is slower than the drive. The real problem is that when I went to buy my Hard Drive, from reading the reviews I was pretty sure the 'kit' did not contain the sata cable, so I intended to buy one, however when I asked the. clerks, they showed me an empty rack there by the drives for a data transfer cable @ $39, so I went home sans cable. A little research on your website and found what I needed, In stock, @ $9. Went back the next day to pick it up, {printout in hand}, and still had trouble finding it, as did the first two clerks, we were all looking at the rack up front with the hard drives, and various cables. However the 3rd clerk pointed out a rack at the back of the store where the mice were hanging & there they were. The location didn't seem logical to me, but the real issue to me was that of the 6 or so clerks I dealt with, on both days, {some who were Geek squad guys}, they didn't seem to know their department very well, which caused me to make the trip twice.

      Whenever I purchased the SATA data connector, I was skeptical of the price. However, due to the deal going on at the time, I was willing to purchase it. As the box advertised, the cable was 2 feet long and had no issues when the cord needed to maneuver in slim areas for wire management. The only downside that I found with this was the standard of quality. The sata connector had a tougher time connecting and being removed from the SATA ports on my motherboard then what I had anticipated. I usually get my SATA cords used, so I will presume that the stiff connection is normal. All and all, the price is worth it when you account for the length and the guarantee that the product is new.

      A Necessary Connection Newbies Need Not Forget!

      I bought this connection device to put my newly purchased SSD to work; granted, with PCIe SSDs in existance, this route may seem a little 'old school,' but hey, it works non-the-less. If you are a 'newbie,' like I 'was,' (and I could argue I still am a 'newbie'), I feel obliged to tell y'all that you'll need this connecting cable to hook up your newly purchased drives. It is always bittersweet to get home with your new drive only to find out, "Wait, how do I hook this drive up? ... It needs a cord? I should have known that!" Well, let me spare you finding yourself in that situation by saying, "Yes, you do need a cord to connect your drives." There is no doubt a cord with faster transfer speeds, but given my budget, I decided this was my cost-effective way to utilize my newly purchased drive. Short version: Buy this cord BEFORE you get home and realize you forgot it! I am satisfied with my purchase!

      Since my original Hard Drive was starting to fail, I bought a replacement with the idea that when the replacement drive arrived under my warranty claim that I would add a second hard drive to my computer. But I would need serial ata cable to hook it up to my motherboard. Was in stock and ordered it with a HDD. When the replacement arrived (under warranty) I went to install the 2nd HDD. The serial ATA cable is a little longer than I needed and I had to shave down some excess plastic off the plug that went into the HDD because there wasn't much room between the plug and the plug for power for the HDD. I didn't have any problem doing that, but a novice might hesitate to modify the plug. They need to slim down the plug that goes into the HDD so that it fits better.
