2.5" SATA the same as 3.5" ?

Is a 2.5" SATA HD (laptop HD) the same connectors as a standard 3.5" SATA HD (desktop HD)?

I know 2.5" IDE (PATA) is NOT the same as 3.5"... but I am not sure about SATA.

Thanks,

Yes, 2.5" SATA drives use the same connectors as 3.5" SATA drives.

"Despite their diminutive form factors, 2.5" Serial ATA hard drives actually use the same connectors as their desktop counterparts. These drives plug into standard SATA data and power cables, making them particularly intriguing options for small form factor systems. If enthusiasts are going to press mobile Pentium M and Turion 64 processors into action in toaster-sized boxes, they might as well bring along mobile hard drives to match."
