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

1 out of 5 eggsdoesn't work

Pros: seemeed like a good idea

Cons: Does not work - at least not with the intended drive. If I had to do it again, I'd choose one with a separate power connection that looks more sophisticated.

5 out of 5 eggsAn extreamly simple solution!

Pros: One cable one drive! The simplest solutions to connect your 2.5" HDD or SSD to your laptop or desktop. No AC adapters no extra cables no more need for a external case. Confirmed that it will read off SMART info and am getting about 300mb/s read and 150mb/s write off a Plextor M5. Two small LED indicators (although I can't figure out what one of them is for)

Cons: I've confirmed that it will not power a 3.5" harddrive (needs more power). Also as mentioned above there is a bit of slow down and although the USB 3.0 standard is capable it will not get full speed out of you modern SSD.

Other Thoughts: It's simple and a fool proof solution. Not sure why no one came up with one of these in the past. The only thing that came close was Power eSATA which not too many motherboards or laptops support. I'll probably get a couple of these for diagnostic work or to use with an SSD for fast and large file transfers.
