I have SATA one cables/connectors, and they do come loose when
fiddling in the case, but otherwise they are fine (when the case is
closed and the machine is running. However, I do prefer the locking
cables and jacks in SATA II.

You might look at Newegg as your vendor, I believe I saw some there: Alternatively, I got some SATAII cables from,
oddly enough, Microcenter, that were good priced and worked well.
