Cables are compatible. Some rumor about sata 2 cable does not meet the 3 standard and will have speed issue, is just rumor. Anyway, your HDD will not saturate sata 2 speed so it hardly matters.

Ok, so they charge you more for sata 3 cable?! LOL, the gimmick business use to make a few more quid. The angled is to help with bending and better fit for some cases.

Yes, sata 3 cable will also work for sata 2 drives. But sata 2 cable is cheaper so get it.
