    Do new SATA drives come with cables?

    I need to get two extra SATA drives for storage to a server we use for back ups. I am going to get two Seagate 7750gb drives but i need to know if they come with the SATA cables or do i need to buy them separate?

    You'll need to buy SATA cables separately (I generally get mine off eBay). They're pretty much all the same, although I found our Dell server needed fancy right-angled connectors, the normal straight ones wouldn't fit.

    If anyone wants some SATA cables I have a rather large bag of them... A reasonable contribution to charity would suffice if anyone is interested.

    7.75TB drives = yum

    Buy them if you don't have a huge bag of them to hand!

    Retail boxed drives may come with them, bare and OEM drives definately won't.
