Categories > USB Converters > STARTECH > StarTech USB3S2SAT3CB USB 3.0 to 2.5” SATA III Hard Drive Adapter Cable w/ UASP

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Perfect
Pros: Best USB 3.0 to SATA adapter in the market. It's super slim and super fast. Can't beat the price and the awesome design.

Note: Will only work with 2.5" HDD or SSD.

Do not get this thinking it will work with your 3.5" HDD, because it won't.
Cons: None

Categories > USB Converters > BYTECC INC > BYTECC USB3-ESATA SuperSpeed USB 3.0 to eSATA 3Gbs Adapter

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Useful & Inexpensive Tool
Pros: This device is simple to use. Plugged it into my Lenovo T440s USB 3 slot and then plugged my eSATA hard drive into the adapter. Windows easily connected the drive and showed it in explorer. I regularly write 40 to 50 GB sized files to the external eSATA drive. Throughput averages about 750 megabits per second. Highest throughput has been about 1 gigabit per second. I am very satisfied with the adapter and find it more than suitable. I have NOT noted any high temperatures on the adapter after these transfers. It does get modestly warm, may 85-90 degrees F., but nothing that is a worry. It is a good value for an inexpensive price.
Cons: None

Categories > USB Converters > STARTECH > StarTech USB3S2SAT3CB USB 3.0 to 2.5” SATA III Hard Drive Adapter Cable w/ UASP

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 UASP makes a HUGE speed increase !
Pros: Small, lightweight, easy to install/remove. Having the USB 3.0 UASP capability together with plugging into a USB 3.0 port raised my I/O rate to 90 MB/sec when transferring large files (video). Without UASP rates are limited to around 60 MB/sec. FYI: UASP is an optional USB 3.0 feature that allows command queuing in which HDDs decide the particular transfer execution order. This allows HDDs to optimize transfers according to the nearest R/W heads' current positions.
Cons: None at all considering this is meant to be used only for temporary HDD hookups.
Other Thoughts: There are darn few external 2.5" external USB 3.0 enclosures that offer UASP capability. One such is the Sabrent EC-UASP tool-less plastic enclosure.

Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2 Poor construction
Pros: the IDE and Molex connector worked
Cons: The SATA power connector came with disconnected wires and I don't have the equipment to repair it
Other Thoughts: was going to RMA but it's just not even worth paying the return shipping. just going to chalk it up as a loss. will not buy again.

Categories > USB Converters > Tripp Lite > Keyspan USA-49WG USB 4 Port Serial Adapter

Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1 Not Win-7 64 compatible
Pros: None.
Cons: Causes BSOD with Win-7 64 bit.
Other Thoughts: I have a older Keyspan USB 4 port serial hub that worked great under win-XP. However, Keyspan was purchased by Triplite and Triplite does not offer a WIn-7 driver for the older unit.

Having up graded the PC that needs this device I (begrudgingly) decided to purchased a new TripLite USB 4 port serial hub. That was an expensive solution tp the problem (as this hub is around $100 and competator's products are about 1/2 that) but I wanted a quick solution.

Well, the new unit did come with a win 7 driver - but it is really buggy driver software. With win-7 64bit, if I turn a device on or off that is connected to the hub, the driver causes a BSOD (blue screen of death) fault in windows. If I had shopped more carefully I would have found numerous reports of this problem on the net.

Do not buy this product; it is useless on (at least) win-7 64bit systems.

Categories > USB Converters > Apricorn > APRICORN ASW-USB3-25 USB3.0 to SATA Adapter

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Clone 3.5" drives, too
Pros: I tried what James W. suggested and it works great.

The Apricorn USB to SATA adapter uses the (5V.) power from your USB ports to power 2.5" drives, but it won't power 3.5" drives which need 12V.

If you try to use the EZ-Gig software with another brand of (12V.) powered adapter, you will get a message telling you that the EZ-Gig software can't find the Apricorn (USB to SATA) adapter.

There is, however, an EZ (pardon the pun) work around.

Purchase a SATA data *extension* cable. Carefully cut off the plastic tabs on either side of the male end (that would normally secure the cable) so it will fit into the Apricorn adapter). Plug that end of the SATA data extension cable into the data port of the Apricorn USB to SATA adapter and plug the other end into your 3.5" drive.

Then simply use any spare SATA power cable connected to your motherboard to supply 12V. power to the drive.

When you restart your computer the EZ-Gig software will now recognize the presence of the Apricorn USB to SATA adapter and will clone a 3.5" drive.

I have done this a number of times with no issues at all. Pretty handy. Thanks James.
Cons: None

Categories > USB Converters > APEVIA CORP. > Apevia CVTUSB32 USB 3.0 to USB 2.0 Converter Cable

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Works as-expected
Pros: Works as-expected, no issues at all. Allows connecting case-mounted USB3.0 cable to motherboard's onboard USB2.0 header, allowing for functional case-mounted USB ports, though at only USB2.0 speeds (which should be obvious to all).

This cable provides me with significant convenience. Without it I would have to rummage around the back of my case for any USB port regardless of type just to connect a flash drive for a quick file transfer.
Cons: None at all.
Other Thoughts: I only needed this because my motherboard's USB3.0 implementation does not include an onboard USB3.0 header.
