The USB 3.0 to SATA adapter cable lets you connect any 2.5'' or 3.5'' SATA drive and HDD drive to your computer through an available USB port -- the easiest way to upgrade the hard drive in your laptop by adding an external SSD via USB 3.0.
Super-fast USB 3.0 data transfer rates ensure file transfers speeds up to 5Gbps in minimal time. But the actual transmission rate depends on the capability of the connected HDD SSD.

- Access any 2.5" or 3.5'' hard drive or solid state drive from any USB enabled computer, for data migration or drive cloning.
- Back up important data to an external storage device.
- Retrieve data from an old SATA and HDD drive.
- Use with an SSD drive to externally upgrade your laptop hard drive via USB 3.0.

I bought this adapter after reading its description and all the positive reviews on Amazon. I like that it's an adapter that you can just plug in rather than an enclosure that you have to screw the hard drive into. I also like that it works for both 2.5" and 3.5" drives, as I have both a laptop and a desktop.
I also thought the price was very reasonable for an adapter that is so useful and versatile. I've only used it once, but so far so good. I highly recommend it!
I only gave it 4 stars for Material Quality and Durability because I've only had it a week. That and the fact that most things just aren't built to last like they used to. BUT this does seem to be made quite well. I'm happy with it. Good product, if I need another I'll buy a second one.

It would have been nice if the USB lead had been a bit longer (it is 500mm) but that is a minor issue since I am using it on a table with a Laptop and it doesn't need to be permanently plugged in. The 12 volt lead on the power supply is about 1 metre, maybe 1.2 as I haven't measured it. The 12 volt supply is 2 AMP rated by the way, and is a fairly standard moulded plug 'switch mode' wall mart type power pack that is very common these days.
Just for information. The LightScribe labelling software was made obsolete by Hewlett Packard in 2013 and was originally written for Windows XP to Windows 7. It doesn't natively install on Windows 10 Home or Windows 10 Pro, but can be made to run on Windows 10 Home (my Laptop) using files downloaded off the Internet from the Lightscribesoftware.org support site. This site is run by a private enthusiast LightScribe user and provides a high level of 'How to install on W10' support, since it is no longer officially HP supported.
I only gave Tech Support for the USB Adaptor cable a 3 star rating in this review because the actual USB adaptor product is being sold by Amazon on behalf of the retailer. Thus there is no direct tech support contact that I can see with the original retailer seller. But given its low price, I deem it a throw away item anyway.
SSD works fine and regular HDD too. The mains adapter is mandatory to power the adapter with 12v/5v and the associated power requirements of USB 3.0
This inexpensive little tool is invaluable to anyone transferring data to/from Drives, whether for recovery, for archiving, Computer Rescue or general purpose interface.
I like the non-blinding blue indicator too! Lovely little bit of kit, thanks!
Installation is easy, plug the SATA connection into the drive, the USB into the PC and the power supply connector into the socket on the SATA connector. Finally plug in the PSU. A small blue LED on the SATA connector should light and away you go. Result I now have a reliable tray loading DVD on my desk, that is if anything faster than the one in the PC case. Also connected 3.5 HDDs with no problem.
Good Points: cables and connectors seem of good quality, assembly is also good with no loose connectors, works with SATA DVD drives as well as HDD. The USB connector is even supplied with a cover to protect it.
Only critisism is the USB lead is rather short - probably okay for laptops - but otherwise may cause a problem depending on the location of the USB sockets on your PC, you can get USB plug to USB socket extension cables.
So to sum up, a good quality product that does the job at a fair price. I would recommend it.
This works perfectly - tried it on the blu-ray player (immediately powered up, and appeared in Windows Explorer when an audio disc was inserted), and tried it for the fun of it, with an old 3.5" HDD that came out my son's HP Pavilion PC - again, Windows 10 recognised it immediately, and I was able to view and move files.
While you wouldn't want this as a permanent connection for your PC or laptop (messy), it's a perfect way to quickly get access to old disks and optical drives if needed.
So easy to use, it doesn't even need instructions - plug SATA connector on the adaptor into the SATA drive, plug power lead from wall socket into adaptor, connect to free USB port on PC - done!
Regardless, very easy to connect up and worked without a problem.
The power supply brick is a quite hefty plug mounted affair (like a phone charger).
Don't know how long it'll last, of course, but thus far, it's perfect.
I had bought a new 4TB HDD and wanted to swap it for my old 2 TB HDD. I bought this device to transfer the data. My computer would not recognise the 4TB drive when connected via this cable so I swapped the drives over and reconnected. This time when I connected the 2 TB drive via USB 3 the computer froze up and I couldn't transfer - I tried several times in several sequences. I ended up transferring the data by connecting via USB 2.0. It took a long time to transfer and had to leave it running overnight.
This was not the easy and quick experience I expected. This device is now thrown to the back of the junk drawer and probably wont be used again. I cannot recommend it.
Got to add that it's blissful to effectively have a smooth, dead quiet external DVD-writer in the old LG (they don't make them that anymore), the new Liteon is a vibrating, humming piece of junk and I couldn't stand the racket it made reading and writing discs.
