5 out of 5 eggsBest Adapter cable!

Pros: - Fast, works well and doesn't require external power
- Migrated and cloned a few HDD's and SSD's
- Only 1 cable to carry around, I don't need to carry a dock or any external power.
- Tried it with USB 2.0 and it worked

Cons: - Only works with 2.5" (laptop) drives (more of a limitation than a con)

5 out of 5 eggsEasy to use and WORKS!

Pros: USB 3.0 capability, only takes one slot. Performs even with large data transfers. Zero setup/software required.

Cons: Just a warning - the cable is only meant for 2.5" drives. It will not supply enough juice for 3.5" drives

Other Thoughts: I've used this with a SAMSUNG SSD and a WD HDD and it worked flawlessly with both.

Specifically for SAMSUNG SSD users - hooking up with this cable to your SSD will cause Windows to recognize your drive as an SCSI HDD and you will not be able to use the Samsung data migration software. If you want to use that, you'll need a 2nd drive bay or perhaps a different cable.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Cable

Pros: Nice cable, it works great. It even has a little light on it to indicate when it's in a usb powered port. I never knew it could be this easy to attach a regular external sata drive to a pc via usb.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect

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

5 out of 5 eggsUASP 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.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Super easy to use. Connected to my Samsung solid state drive and my laptop USB port. Win7 recognized the connection. Samsung migration software worked well. Took about 20 mins to copy. Then I swapped the drive without a hitch.

Cons: No free shipping.
