4 out of 5 eggsPlug in and go

Pros: Easy to use, just plug it in and Windows automatically detects and install. 3.0 and backward compatible to 2.0

Cons: not and enclosure , but not really necessary

Other Thoughts: Some people have complained about the 1' long stiff cord, but they dont understand that USB 3.0 protocol is limited in cord length to get the fast data transfer.
I used with two of the latest drives Samsung 850EVO and OCZ ARC100, both 250gb. Had no issues transferring my old drives. now using the second drive as a back up.
If it stops working at some point i will write a follow-up

5 out of 5 eggsGreat adapter, highly recommended

Pros: This USB3 / SATA-3 adapter is great for quickly attaching any 2.5" SSD/HDD drive to your PC. I did benchmark testing of four different SSDs and a HGST Travelstar 7200 RPM 1TB drive. The SSDs got up to 400MB/s read speeds and the HGST clocked in around 125MB/s. This adapter is able to saturate the USB3 bus speed so its as fast as you can get. I liked it so much that I bought another one to stuff the HGST drive in my laptop cooler for a permanent backup drive. There is also an activity LED to show you when it is working. This thing works much better than most USB3 drive enclosures and docks that I have.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: For the money you can't beat this adapter. The fact that they were able to stuff all that bandwidth into the cable is amazing to me. This is a must-have for techs or anyone who needs to clone 2.5" drives or for quicky backups. You could even slap a USB3 PCIE card in your PC and run this adapter if you are short on SATA3 ports.

5 out of 5 eggsStarTech USB3S2SAT3CB USB 3.0 to 2.5” SATA III Hard Drive Adapter Cable

Pros: Works perfectly ! I haven't found a 2.5" drive that this adapter doesn't work with. Extremely handy, especially when I don't want to go to the trouble of hooking up an external HDD dock. (I have modified my EZO Power USB+eSATA external dock to run 2.5" drives using just USB supplied power. This dock now needs no 'wall wort' power supply for 2.5" drives.)

Cons: None whatsoever !

Other Thoughts: Why wasn't this invented 5 years ago ?

5 out of 5 eggsAn absolute MUST HAVE

Pros: VERY easy to use, and versatile. Unlike some of the other kits out there, this is just one cable to connect your SATA drive via a USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 port.

Cons: Wish the cable was a little more flexible, or just a little bit longer. The product description only shows USB 3.0, but the cable works with USB 2.0 as well.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Fast!

Pros: Very fast adapter. Faster than the thunderbolt adapter i purchased for $115. I tested the same SATA III drive in both adapters and this is what i got,

Thunderbolt: Write: 320 Read: 360

Startech Adapter: Write 360 Read: 410

Programs load like lightning. Cant beat the price.

Another pro is that is has an led hard drive activity light, its dimmed so its not obnoxious. This could possibly be the best $15 ive ever spent.

Cons: Nada

Other Thoughts: Late 2012 iMac 27"
i5 (3.2GHZ)
24 GB Ram
Graphics: Nvidia 675MX
