Style Name: Right AngleSize: 18 inch Verified Purchase
As the title suggests. However, be mindful of where you're using the cable in your computer. The right angle end of the SATA cable is built in a way where the cable will be directed downwards when inserted properly. So theoretically, if you're inserting the right angle end of the cable into a hard drive that's placed in the bottom of your computer and faces the computer cover (such as the Dell XPS 420), then the cable will need to loop upwards towards the other SATA insert, which will create tension to the wiring when placing the cover back in place. That's not the manufacturer's fault, of course, but again, be careful.

Style Name: Right AngleSize: 24 inch Verified Purchase
I had purchased a right angle StarTech cable from another vendor almost two years ago. I wanted to use it to connect a second hard drive in my Dell Dimension E510. It did not work because of a clearance issue, and the second drive, while installed in the drive bay, was not usable. I happened to come across this cable on Amazon, and noted that several reviewers said it worked in the E510. I decided to take a chance, so I ordered it. It was delivered to me two days later. I noted at once that the right angle connector was significantly shorter than the other StarTech RA connector, so I was very encouraged. I installed it today, and after a reboot, the drive was recognized by XP as new hardware. When I went through this process two years ago it took me a while to diagnose the case clearance issue. Thanks to the reviewers who specifically mentioned the E510. I wouldn't have ordered the cable without that information.

This cable performs perfectly. It is well made. It is reliable. I recommend it 100%!

If you are ordering cables which will be used **in your computer case,** look carefully at the position of the SATA connection that you're dealing with.

Look very carefully if the connection location is especially crowded, as it is in my computer (on the motherboard adjacent to one of the reinforcing structural members of the computer case itself).

If a straight-through connector just won't fit, (it didn't, in my computer) then you'll have to use a 90-degree connector. But here's the problem: the way that the 90-degree connector is **angled** makes a big difference! Imagine a straight-through connector bent one way, then **imagine it bent the other way.**

The distinction between these two ways of bending or "angling" the straight-through connector is the reason that the expression, "left angle" is used. It is a sensible way to distinguish one way of "angling" as opposed to the opposite way.

When you are about to place an order for a 90-degree angled SATA connector, look very carefully at the picture of the cable that you are about to buy. Focus your attention on the L-shape of the SATA connection where the connector "mates" with the L-shaped SATA socket.

Is a a left-angle or a right-angle? Look carefully.

Here is a suggestion: These cables are so cheap that if you are seeking a cable for **one connection** just order two cables... one "left angle" and one "right angle." One of them will fit.

Style Name: Left AngleSize: 12 inch Verified Purchase
This cable works as expected and is exactly what I needed. The twelve inch length allowed the cable to have sufficient slack so that the cable did not pull on the connectors.
One thing to be aware of is the model number. This model is SATA12LA1. There is another model that "looks" the same with model number SATA12RA1. The difference is the 7th character which stands for (L)eft or (R)ight. Make sure you get the correct one as the wrong one will likely not work in your computer.
There are other cables on Amazon that do not indicate Left or Right. I would stay away from these cables.

This was the correct cable for my needs, unlike those people who fail to do research and then complain when they order the wrong product. No hitches attaching this cable to a 2TB SATA drive I just installed in a Dell Optiplex. Right angle worked in the expected orientation.

I've used this cable for a couple weeks now, watching a lot of videos off the 2TB HD without any problems. Data transfer is as expected.

Outstanding cable value - not a $20 ripoff as would be from Yellow Buy box store.

Fit perfectly in Dell E510 which has a very tight space for hard drive. Cable is long enough to route thru original path. Works very well!

When buying this cable, note that one end has a 90 degree angled plug. This can be either an advantage or problem depending on the available space in your machine. In my case it made connecting two adjacent cables somewhat challenging.

Style Name: Left AngleSize: 18 inch Verified Purchase
I researched the right/left angle issue but still ended up with the wrong one. Luckily, it didn't make a lot of difference with my configuration. The important thing was to cut down on the height and this did that. The open SATA ports on my motherboard are tucked under other stuff so it was a bit of a trick getting this to plug in. I thought the softness of the cable would be an extra problem in that regard but the plug was good about finding its way to the port and there was just enough room on the black plastic hub for a long screwdriver blade to give a firm push all the way in.
