Do SSD come with SATA cables?

They generally don’t, they are usually packaged with your motherboard in most cases, so if you don’t have a free one, you’ll probably need to buy an extra cable when you order your SSD. However, some manufacturers, such as Intel, sometimes (again, not always) pack extra cables when purchasing their SSDs, but this is rare and not all brands do.

What are SSDs?

SSDs are the storage devices you use to store your files, pictures, music, and videos. They have a smaller capacity than HDDs, but they are a lot faster, but their capacity is generally more than enough for what they do. Therefore, their popularity has skyrocketed in recent years, as they can hold hundreds of thousands of terabytes of information. SSDs are generally better than HDDs because they are 3 to 6 times faster than your average HDD and have no moving parts, making them less likely to fail and cause data loss.

If you don’t have extra SATA cables in your house or home, you’ll need to go to a nearby hardware store and buy one. All hardware stores are guaranteed to sell them because they are quite common and cheap, otherwise you can just order them online.
