I was looking for a cable that would allow me to connect an external hard drive to my Toshiba L655D laptop, and this cable was perfect for the job. The SATA connector fit the external Toshiba hard drive perfectly, although I did not try it on other drives so there may be issues with other manufacturers drives.
Toshiba does not provide +5V power on their laptop eSATA/USB Combo Port so you need to have this cable to get the power from the USB port to operate an external 2 1/2" hard drive. This cable would not work on an external 3 1/2" drive because it would also need +12V and that voltage is not available from either the USB or eSATA port.
