Hi,


are all SATA cables the same, I mean is the transfer rate the same on every SATA cable (not including e-SATA).


Thanks.

no-theres sata 1 and sata II cables. though, if your buying them new, from a source such as newegg, then they will all be sata II cables. sata I cables will work with either sata I, II or III its just they only transfer at 1.5 gbs while sata II transfers at 3 g/ps and sata III transfers at 6 g/ps. sata III is not widely available yet, its fairly new, and sata I is not sold new in most places so chances are if you pick up a sata cable its probably going to be sata II.

not much difference. there is usually a subtle width difference between sata I and sata II cables, though not necessarily. really the only way to tell is by the packaging (it will normally say) and the specs online, since all cables are forward and backwards compatible. heres a link to sata II cables http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList....=sata+II+cables
