Very Good Adapter 09/30/2013
This review is from: VANTEC CB-SATAU3-6 NexStar SATA 6Gbps to USB 3.0 Adapter - 2.5"/3.5"/5.25"/SSDs
Very fast data transfer on USB 3. My Acer ultrabook running Windows 7 Home Premium recognized my DVD drive instantly when I attached the USB cable. Installed MS Office from DVD amazingly quickly and with no problems at all.
SATA connector apparently fits but does not "snap" on to some SATA drive ports. Be aware that the connector can fall out if you are moving things around. (A piece of tape will hold it in fine against moves or bumps if needed.)
Pulled a DVD player from my desktop and used this adapter to connect it to my DVD-less ultrabook to provide for some software installation. Everything worked perfectly. Had to be careful not to let the adapter fall out of the drive ports, but that was not a show-stopper. Definitely recommend this adapter!
