This right angled latching SATA cable features a (straight) female Serial ATA connector as well as a right-angled (female) SATA connector, providing a simple connection to a Serial ATA drive even if space near the drive's SATA port is limited. The cable offers latching connectors, which ensure secure connections for SATA hard drives and motherboards that support this feature. Once the right-angled SATA connector has been inserted into the drive's SATA data port, the shaft of the cable is seated flush with the rear panel of the drive, eliminating the clutter of excess cable at the connection point - an ideal solution for small or micro form factor computer cases. The right angled SATA cable features a thin, narrow construction that helps to improve airflow within the computer case; the cable features a rugged, yet flexible design that makes it easy to make the SATA connection as needed, and is backed by StarTech.com's Lifetime Warranty.
This review is from: StarTech LSATA18RA1 18" Latching SATA Cable M/M 1 Right Angle
Pros: These cables are much more flexible than the stock cables that come in MB kits. The latching mechanism is very secure. The flexibility comes in handy when routing cable around a case so that you can get your drives to plug properly.
Cons: Be aware that the latching mechanism may make it difficult to re-route cables if you have a tight case. You will need to press your finger on the metal latch to get it to release.
Other Thoughts: I found that my MB was super-sensitive to cables that were not terminated on devices when cables were attached to the SATA ports. If you think about each cable as being an antenna, these spurious signals make drive detection and performance problematic. Remember lessons from SCSI to only use cables that are properly terminated.
