3 out of 5 eggsNice USB 3.0 to SATA cable, box is junk

Pros: Inexpensive. Nice SATA to USB 3.0 cable adapter. Only needs AC power adapter for 3.5" desktop drives. Overall fairly small (my other SATA to USB adapter is HUGE in comparison with a much bigger AC adapter)

Cons: The cable could be longer? It's like 3 feet.

The real CON is the stupid BOX. The description makes this sound like a removable standalone hard drive caddy... eh, no. It's a PLASTIC BOX that you sit the hard drive in (no screws), and the cable plugs in the back. It is the stupidest thing I have seen, and it will hit the trash very soon.

Other Thoughts: I thought I was buying an external hard drive SATA to USB 3.0 enclosure with a detachable cable. What I got was a SATA to USB 3.0 cable with a cheap thin plastic box. Box is useless, AND it's baby blue. Why not pink or yellow, if we're going to throw it away anyway?

5 out of 5 eggsIt Works

Pros: I have tried it out on a 3.5 inch HDD and a Blu-Ray player and it worked for both of them.
Item is a good value.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I don't have any use for the included HDD case, so I threw it out.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: None.

Cons: Couldn't get it to work.
Waste of time.
Have to pay for shipping it back.

Other Thoughts: I'd give zero stars if I could.

I needed this to get info off a drive from a laptop with a failed motherboard. Didn't work with several known good drives, with or without power adapter. Tried connecting to USB 2.0 & USB 3.0. Tried connecting to 3 different computers with 2 different operating systems. Cable seemed to be good (tested with other devices), power unit seemed OK (light went on), disk seemed to get power (vibrated) but drives don't show up in computer. Nothing.
I know it's not the computer--no problem connecting other external drives, but this thing just won't connect.

Frustrating waste of time and effort.

Back it goes, at my expense.

3 out of 5 eggsno warranty from company

Pros: Ideally the product will work. Just received it today.

Cons: The warrant is regional to Macau and Hog Kong.

Other Thoughts: Would be nice if empty cases were available. What is shown on the product literature is several cases lined up to appear as "books".
