If you’re installing a Crucial SSD into a desktop system and want to move from a one-drive to two-drive setup, you’ll need a way to connect the additional drive to your system, which is where this cable comes into play. Alternatively, if you’re building a PC from scratch, you’ll need this cable to connect the SSD to your system. SATA 6 Gb/s (SATA III) simply means that the cable is able to transfer data at speeds up to 6 Gb/s when used with equivalent devices and controllers.
One end of this cable features a straight connector, while the other end uses a 90-degree connector, which makes it easier to manage cables in tight spaces. A locking latch ensures the connection doesn’t come loose due to movement or vibration. UV blue color.
