5 out of 5 eggs It Worked 04/02/2013

This review is from: APRICORN ASW-USB3-25 USB3.0 to SATA Adapter


Low Cost
Actually Works
Easy to Use


No option for external AC Adapter to use it with a 3.5" drive-only suitable for drives that can be powered by USB.

Other Thoughts:

I was upgrading from a Kingston Hyper X 128GB SSD to a Vertex 4 256GB SSD. Did not have time for a clean install. I tried Acronis True Image (which has always worked in the past) and Norton Ghost. Neither worked, using a couple of different external SATA to USB 3 devices. Saw this on special and took a leap. Worked the first time and was so easy anyone could do it. Clone worked perfectly except for Quick Books which likes to bury hidden encrypted authorization files just to make things more difficult. Clearing that up took far more time and effort than the clone. New drive is a bit faster even without a clean install.
