I just came from Directon.com where I ordered some OEM SATA cables, 18", 150mbs, @$1.50 each, postpaid, USPS.
They have other sales too but not all have free shipping. I'm going back and crawl more slowly through the site....
it's a good time to replenish the spares.
BestBuy had one SATA cable in the joint @$19.95 and CircuitCity doesn't carry them at all???
