Now with the packaging off, we can look at the cables.

As you can see, the cables are identical with the exception of color. 

All of the connections are color-coded and have boots to protect the wires.  There are also handy pull-tabs for removing the cable.  This way, you do not stress the wires by pulling on them.

Does anyone notice anything wrong with these two pictures?  The top one should say "Master" rather than "Primary".  As you probably already know, each IDE cable has a master and slave drive, while there is a primary and secondary channel.  On the bottom picture "System Board" is misspelled "Syetem Board".  While this isn't something that is going to trip anyone up, it's still kind of funny.

The UV cable is actually translucent, and has a neat sliver weave underneath the plastic.

These cables are surprisingly flexible, even for rounded cables.  This knot does not have pressure coming on in from the ends, and if I wanted to, I could probably close the knot with little effort.  Since something like this might damage the cable, I opted not to try it.
