Categories > USB Converters > Tripp Lite > Tripp Lite 6in USB 3.0 SuperSpeed to SATA III Adapter w/UASP/2.5-3.5" Black

Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2 Be aware! Bad marketing - is not what it claims to be!
Pros: I don't have any Pros.
Cons: This device is labeled as compatible with 3.5" SATA drives. While it will plug into a 3.5" SATA drive, USB only provides 5V power. #.5" SATA drives run on the 12V part of your system. Therefore this device CANNOT run a standard 3.5" internal HDD. Took me nearly 2 months of working with Tripp Lite Tech Support to get them to actually test this, but they are now sending me a device that is capable of the advertised task. I will update this and identify the replacement product when I receive it.
Other Thoughts: This might be a good product for reading 2.5" laptop HDDs but I don't have any currently to test. NewEgg needs to update their promotional literature as Tripp Lite is doing.

Hope this helps someone avoid the frustrations I have had.

Categories > USB Converters > Vantec > VANTEC CB-STU3-2PB USB 3.0 to 2.5" SATA HDD Adapter with Case

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Great Purchase for a Well Needed Item
Pros: Can be used to connect pretty much any Sata drive to your pc for several purposes such as using it as an external HDD/SDD. Can be used to clone another drive to the drive you have installed in this. It can be used as a data transfer cable or insert a 2.5" drive in the case and use it as an external as well as be able to safely transport a 2.5" drive safely. In my opinion, its well made with hard plastic so it should hold up as long as you don't abuse it.
Cons: Only subjective con is I wish Vantec could have made it so you could connect/disconnect any usb cable to it cause the little wire (as seen in the picture) is short so if you use it on your laptop while on the move you would have to rest it on the keyboard of the laptop cause you don't want it hanging off the side of you system putting pressure on the cable and usb port where if it had the option to attach whatever USB/USB cable to it you could connect a long enough cable where it could be placed in a much safer place while in use.
Other Thoughts: I bought an Samsung 850 Evo SSD for my Alienware laptop and wanted to clone the HDD to the SSD. The only way I could find was to have something like this to do so cause when placing the Drives I needed to clone into my pc it wouldn't let me do it (And I tried several different programs and options). Now this may (and most likely is) have been my own ignorance in doing so. I ended up just installing the SSD and doing a fresh install of windows so I didn't get the chance to use this for what I wanted mostly because I ordered this after I did the install of the SSD with the plan of using it to clone the HDD to the SSD at some point but instead I decided to just use the 750gb HDD from the Alienware as an external backup/storage drive for pc/laptop for now and this item works great for this. I am very happy I decided to buy this item and being its still at the $7.99 price I'm thinking of getting another 1. If you need something like this, I'd say get it now while the price is low cause I found this same item for $19.99 at other places and at $7.99 its perfect.

Categories > USB Converters > Coboc > Coboc U3-2.5SATA2-UASP USB 3.0 to 2.5" SATA II 3Gbps Hard Drive Adapter Cable w/UASP - with Reserved USB Power Cable

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Does everything i wanted it to do :)
Pros: -Low Cost
- Works really well
- Very low speed difference from just using a SATA port on my machine
- Relatively decent construction (even with the fact that it's a lower cost cable)
-Plugged it in and Windows recognized the drive and the cable immediately, and installed the drivers
- Black, and not cheap looking :)
- Have had no issues what so ever in regards to power issues
Cons: - I wish it was even cheaper (I'm broke)
- It got delivered way too fast, I was surprised it was only a few days later after I ordered it
- NONE, this is an awesome cable that did everything I wanted it to do. And I am pretty brutal on my devices in regards to use, and I am always pushing everything I own to the limit, and this cable allowed me to do that.
Other Thoughts: - Keep in mind that it does use the USB power from the bus unless you bring in another power supply using the power USB. I didn't even need to worry about it and I am using a Dell 17R Laptop with way too many drives and other accessories such as dongles and printers, with a ton of USB hubs and still no issues at all.
I bought this one a few weeks ago and just bought 2 more last night because of the fact that I liked the construction and the price. If your looking for a SATA to USB adapter cable for a low price, this is what you need. I use them for all of my SATA devices regardless of the size, and I bought a adapter to be able to use my Laptops DVD drive as an external drive. Thanks

Categories > USB Converters > Syba > SYBA SD-CM-UAUD USB 2.0 External Stereo Audio Adapter

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Cheap sound card to make my mic sound WAY better
Pros: Cheap
Sounds way better than on board sound card
Small and portable
Cons: Nothing
Other Thoughts: I use this for my Antlion ModMic 4 because my motherboard's audio was too quiet and when raised produced awful noise. With this sound card just turn on the AGC (automatic gain control) and I set the volume to ~70% and the mic is definitely loud enough and super crystal clear with no noticeable noise.

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Does what it was intended to do!!!!!!!!
Pros: I needed this cable to clone my laptop HDD to my new ADATA SU800 (256GB) SSD, and It worked.
Cons: none
Other Thoughts: I noticed that the cable has a dim indicator light to let you know that the drive has power, and another indicator light that lets you know when data is running through the cable.

Categories > USB Converters > APEVIA CORP. > Apevia CVTUSB32 USB 3.0 to USB 2.0 Converter Cable

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Basic item, performs as desired.
Pros: Quality connectors, have used for a few years now, no problems with repeated connection-disconnection cycles.
Cons: None.
Other Thoughts: I view the shortness of the adapter as a plus, unlike some other reviewers. The case cables are plenty long enough, adding additional cabling to the interior would be a negative, in my view.
This is a basic item, I have a feeling the bad experiences others have had may be due to their own self created issues.

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 got it for free and it works
Pros: Plugged into Linux Mint 17.3, made a few changes in the audio preferences and boom it works.
Cons: n/a
Other Thoughts: I don't record so I can't test the input. But the output works quite well and in Linux.
This would be good for those that have a box without audio connectors on the front panel.
I tested this in a usb 3 plug in.
