Tripp Lite expands its line of hard drive cables with the introduction of our new line of eSATA ( SATA II ) cables. This 18" data cable connects any high speed eSATA drive, PVR/DVR, or SETOP box to an eSATA controller. SATA-II delivers higher data transfer rates (up to 3 Gbps), and the double-shielded cable design is perfect for the new generation of External SATA -II drives. SATA-II drives offer 6 times the transfer rate of USB & Firewire external drives. These cables feature 7-pin straight latching (male) and offer easy installation. Tripp Lite warrants this product to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for life.
