    USB 3.0 to SATA Converter Adapter

    This USB 3.0 to SATA Converter Cable connects any standard 2.5-inch SATA Hard Drive or Solid State Drive (SSD), any 3.5-inch SATA hard drive, or any 5.25-inch optical drive (CD-ROM, DVD-RW, etc.) to a computer through its USB port. It's ideal for backing up files or upgrading a notebook to an external hard drive.

    It supports USB 3.0 speeds up to 5Gbps. No extra power is required for 2.5" drives and a 12 VDC power adapter is included for 3.5" HDDs and 5.25" ODDs. It supports all 2.5"/3.5" SATA HDD/SSD, BLU-RAY DVD, CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, CD-RW, DVD-RW, and DVD+RW Combo devices via SATA connector.

    Simply plug the SATA converter into the internal SATA drive, then plug the USB cable into your PC. The converter will allow the drive to be recognized by your computer as a USB device, the same as if you had installed it into an external enclosure.

    Solid consistent performance
    I've used this item for a little over a week and have performed fifteen or so transfers from both 3.5 and 2.5 inch hard drives. Performance is consistent and fast. Connection is secure and does not feel cheap and flimsy like some similar tools I have used before.

    Good stuff
    Easy to connect, noticeable faster on USB 3.0 than on USB 2.0. Pulled out my 2 TB HDD from the enclosure with eSATA and USB 2.0 interfaces, because eSATA PCIe card (PI 3581) that I bought previously didn't work with Win 7 pro (my review on that matter has never been posted). For 3.5" equipment, power has to be plugged before interface.

    PROS: Convenient, fast, immediately gets installed by the OS.

    CONS: Could've been provided with a longer USB cable, but it's OK.

    Provided my primary need, but fell short on other uses
    I purchased this device to help install OSs on machines that do not have optical drives. It did this work fine, but in two other instances I tried to connect a hard disk drive with a USB 2 failed. I have other ways to connect these drives so I did not experiment much to find a solution. It did what I needed and for a great price, but I was hopeful for more.

    USB 3.0 to SATA Converter Adapter
    Works as advertised out of the box. Easy to use. Does the job. Needed to disconnect some hard drives to run virus removal for some friends. I like the adapter. Don't plan to buy another because I expect this one to last a long time.

    An easy way to connect a spare SSD drive to the computer. Just plug it in and it works.

    SSD install
    Purchased a Samsung 850 SSD and bought this cable to migrate my existing hard drive to the SSD. With Samsungs install program it was easy. Plus the price of the cable was amazingly low for the quality.

    Nice Updated Version of great Interface
    This unit with its included PS works great for Large Sata drives and works well without PS on laptop HDD. The connections are on the back and are more convenient than ones that have them on the sides. Great adapter for tech on the go. Remember to protect HDD from ESD and environment.
