Easily connect and transfer data from a 2.5in or 3.5in SATA drive to your PC or Notebook using USB 3.0. The USB3S2SATA USB 3.0 to SATA Adapter Cable connects any standard 2.5-inch SATA Hard Drive or Solid State Drive (SSD), or any 3.5-inch SATA hard drive to a computer through USB 3.0.

The USB 3.0 to SATA adapter lets you externally connect a bare drive with no drive enclosure or HDD dock required, saving time, hassle and added cost.

The adapter cable works with Windows®, Linux, and Mac® computers and does not require any software or driver installation - a true plug-and-play solution for adding cost-effective external storage, or overcoming incompatibility between modern hard drives and motherboards that may not be SATA-equipped or have a Serial ATA port available.

Backed by our 2-year warranty, the USB3S2SATA USB 3.0 to SATA Adapter Cable comes complete with universal adapter and power cords, providing the additional power required to connect 3.5-inch and larger capacity 2.5-inch hard drives.
