Adapter works great.
This review is from: Koutech IO-AOU120 SATA Slim ODD-to-USB 2.0 Mini Adapter
Pros: Easy to use. Easy to install. Works as expected.
Cons: Doesn't come with any USB cables.
Other Thoughts: Sometimes these adapters do not work as promised or expected, but his one did! If you need to convert a slim-line optical drive from SATA to USB (for example, installing a slim-line optical drive in a server/desktop that doesn't have extra SATA ports or that strange "mini" SATA power cable), then this can do it. Easy to install, no drivers or anything funky like that to have to worry about. The only things to keep in mind is that it doesn't come with any USB cables (I used the internal USB header cable because I had that opening on my motherboard, Item # N82E16812200735); and your motherboard's BIOS needs to be able to handle a USB optical drive "natively" to boot from and that sort of thing (nearly all modern motherboards do).
