Rated 5 out of 5 by from Doesn't work Tried on window 7 and windows 10, on 3 year old hardware (USB3.0) and 3 day old hardware (USB3.1). does not work on either. Should have stuck with my older Vantec SATA/IDE to USB 2.0 Adapter which works without fail.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding product, works very well I have used several USB adapters for SATA hard drives in the past, including those for USB 2.0 (far too slow) and USB 3.0. The need to upgrade was caused by the USB 3.0 devices not supporting DVD drives or larger hard drives above 2TB. I could have got hold of another USB 3.0 adapter for less money, but there seemed little point when a USB 3.1 device was available and that looks set to become a new standard. I have used this device for a few weeks and it has performed very well. The uses I have put it to do illustrate reasonably well how useful it is. I used it on an internal DVD burner, which worked just fine, then I used it with a new laptop, with a USB 3.1 Type “C” socket (the smaller USB 3.1 sockets). Because this device has a type “A” plug, I used an OTG cable I use for my tablet and this worked fine. I then used this device on a larger capacity HDD (3TB). This had been the drive I could not test on the older USB 3.0 devices, as they could not handle drives over 2TB. I plugged it, it worked just fine. This drive had been throwing errors when in my Synology NAS and I needed to see if this was a hardware issue, or the NAS. Stability of this device was tested on several occasions. I performed a slow full format on the 3TB drive overnight and that went well. I also copied over 2.5TB of data from the NAS overnight to a 3TB drive and this took all night, again without issue. In summary, this is an adaptable device, that works with the latest USB standards, it has a USB “A” plug, but can be adapted to work with USB “C” sockets, it is fast in operation, works with DVD drives as well as HDD’s, does not require power for 2.5” (laptop) hard drives and has proven to be stable in operation. If I was looking for a criticism – which is going to be difficult to do, it would be a concern about how robust this device is going to be over the long term, it is far smaller and appears to be a little flimsy compared to the USB 3.0 devices it replaces – but equally, you can argue this device brings portability and light weight design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great Have now used this for over a year with 2 very different W10 laptops to access hard drives from dead or obsolete computers. Works fine. Will stream a BluRay image or copy files at the max rate the drive supports. You will need to use the 12V. supply to power a 3.5" drive. This adapter is the easiest SATA-USB I have ever used and I have several going back to USB1 days.
