Western Digital Serial ATA cables with SecureConnect provide a stable, secure attachment between the hard drive and cable. With SecureConnect, the drive to cable connection is strengthened by more than 500% compared to standard SATA cables which helps overcome connector breakage problems common to SATA cables. These cables are compatible with conventional system-side SATA connectors and backplanes.
Comments about Western Digital Western Digital Serial ATA (7-pin) Cable:
I perform computer repairs for people in my small town community in the Midwest and am a PC-junky who is constantly tweaking his own Computer. Two years ago, I ruined a [$] Western Digital Raptor drive because the SATA connection broke (mostly due to my adding and removing things from the PC). I learned about these secure connect cables then and have been using them ever since. It's worth the extra [$]over a normal SATA cable to assure that you'll never break the light plastic socket for the SATA cable on your hard drive.
