Both SSDs running half speed on all SATA III - Page 3

post #21 of 23
So there is something with these cables really. Lot of people say it don't matter if you buy a sata cable 1,2, or 3 but it seems not.

I reckon this is more a case of poor quality control rather than it being SATA I/II/III.

I kinda thought that was worth a try. Don't see that very often, but it can happen.

I agree, when a SATA cable can be $3, more or less, what does it cost to manufacture? Do they even test them besides say for continuity, if that? Four 26 gauge (hopefully!) wires, some foil shielding (again, hopefully! Round SATA cables can have wire shielding too), each connector probably costs more than the cable portion. Then the flat style cables are folded two or thee times to fit in a small bag, just what thin wires need.

There is actually a spec about the number of "insertions" a SATA cable connector should withstand and still work, which I believe is about 50. Sounds like plenty and not at the same time.

We all know how different SATA connectors fit on mother board SATA ports, some tight and others loose from the start. Usually worse on SSDs, I still think it's a miracle they work as well as they do.

Some of the Samsung 830 "upgrade kit" SSDs had a cable included, which I thought was an above average cable. My "old" Intel 510 SSD came with the cheapest looking cable I ever saw. Cables with mobos, usually look pretty good but I never use them, I hate long cables.
