(Truly) left-angled SATA cable

Recommended Posts

Huh, tough one. I've only seen up or down right angled cords, not left or right as you need. I'll check around and post back if I find anything.

I've got a feeling my Sony Vaio SZ uses such a cable(as you describe) - you might be able to find something like this amongst spare laptop parts - but that would be rather expensive...

These possibly wouldn't work...

Nice find...and it's what you wanted. If that cable doesn't work for your tight drive fit, I'm not sure you have much hope.

If it does not work out, I will have to place the drive somewhere else in the case. Not terribly lot of space there, but it is possible. But I would have to drill new mounting holes, and it would probably also rule out a slim-optical, but that might be okay. But I hope that the ordered cable works :D

Btw, nice to be back to SR. Was a regular reader many years ago.
