USB 3.0 to 2.5" SATA III Hard Drive Adapter Cable with UASP Support

Easily connect a 2.5” SATA hard drive* to your USB-enabled computer with the Rosewill RCUC-16001 USB 3.0 to 2.5" SATA III Hard Drive Adapter Cable with UASP Support.

The cable-style adapter features a SATA interface at one end, which is compatible with SATA revision I / II / III (1.5 / 3.0 / 6.0 Gbps). The adapter makes it easy to swap between hard drives without having to install your drives in an enclosure.

The USB 3.0 interface at the other end supports super-fast data transfer rates of up to 5Gbps. With support for UASP (Attached SCSI Protocol Specification Revision 1.0), it delivers transfer speeds up to 70% faster than conventional USB 3.0. This enables you to utilize the full potential of your SATA III SSD/HDD when paired with a UASP-enabled host controller. The USB 3.0 interface is also backward compatible with 2.0 &1.1 (480Mbps &12Mbps) specifications.

Additionally, the cable adapter is USB-powered; no external power required. The portable and lightweight design allows for easy storage in your laptop bag or carrying case.

Note: * The adapter cable will work only with 2.5" SATA drives. 3.5" / 5.25" drives are not supported.

Lousy cheapo product 12/21/2019 10:14:07 AM

Pros: None

Cons: Ultra cheapo construction.
It was defective and I returned it for refund, but not before it caused me hours of frustration, aggravation and grief.
I bought it to use with an SSD, which I bought at the same time to replace the worn out HDD in my laptop. When I plugged the SSD into the laptop using the Rosewill cable, Windows gave a message saying it couldn't recognize the device. I thought the new SSD was the problem, so I returned it and received a replacement SSD. I got the same message again when I plugged the replacement SSD in. So now I'm thinking either there's something wrong with the laptop or the Rosewill cable is defective.
So then, I hit on the idea that maybe I could disassemble a Seagate external hard drive I have and use the cable from that. This worked and everything went fine from there on.
This Rosewill cable turned a 3 hr job into a 3 week job. Rosewill trash represents everything I've come to expect from anything that has the label "Made in China" on it.

Overall Review: I would recommend that anyone else avoid this product and any other Rosewill product like the plague, regardless of price.

Truly Plug-and-Play 12/18/2019 9:12:33 AM

Cons: Indicator lights are on the opposite-side of the hard-drive's circuit board, which means that the circuit board can be in-contact with a conductive surface.

Overall Review: No special procedures required!
You can attach & detach however you like.

worst usb to sata adapter ever 12/15/2019 7:35:55 AM

Pros: None

Cons: 1. only support USB 3.0
2. Does not recognize any HDD attached to the adapter

Overall Review: It is completely useless. Bought it while it was on sale, first time tried to use it today and it was not working on all my windows and Unix laptop.
I wish I can give it zero egg in this review.

Great device but it ONLY work on a USB 3.0 port 12/10/2019 9:48:42 AM

Cons: Great device but it ONLY work on a USB 3.0 port
Therefore it is not backward compatible with a USB 2.0 port.

Overall Review: This device is not backward compatible with a USB 2.0 port as it should be.
Reported the issue with Rosewill and they sent to me a replacement unit.
It turned out that the replacement unit behaves exactly the same way.
For example, on a Toshiba laptop, with 4 USB ports, the unit will work only on the three USB 3.0 ports and not on USB 2.0 port.
