VPCSA290S Need part number for SSD double ended cable

Sony Notebook Forum - forum.notebookreview.com
Hello everyone,

I bought a VPCSA with a single 120GB SSD thinking I could upgrade later on but I was completely taken by surprise when I checked the bay to see 1) it was a 1.8" drive (didn't do enough research before ordering) and 2) the cable was single-ended.

So it looks like I need to find a decent 1.8" drive and a replacement cable.

I did quite a bit of research but never found the answer.

The closest I found was this thread which was very useful though I'm not sure the part number listed is the right one for my model.

How to replace the SSD in Vaio VPCZ11 and VPCZ12 with non-Sony SSD

I also ran a check on the Sony serviceplus website for the VPCSA part numbers and didn't find anything similar either. But I did find this by using only VPCS :

VPCSB FPC SSD SATA x 2

Can anyone confirm that this is the part I need? Because I'd rather avoid ordering a 70$ cable only to find out it's not the right one.

As for the drive, it seems the crucial are popular but they are hard to find, the only 1.8" microSATA drives I seem to find are the kingston ones

Anyway, hopefully someone will be able to answer to my questions.
