  • USB 3.0 TO SATA supports 2.5 /3.5 SATA SSD HDD, BLU-RAY DVD, CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, CD-RW, DVD-RW, DVD+RW Combo devices.


Adapter is SATAIII and USB 3.0 only.
Worked with test drive. Drive has 3 partitions.


Adapter does not have a power switch.
Whoever mentioned IDE/EIDE is wrong.
No warranty implied in USA (only Newegg's 30 day).
No way to order extra plastic box enclosures (as yet).
