I upgraded my mSATA memory in my ultrabook and had a 128 gig mSATA with nothing to do. So I used this little adapter (a steal at $11.99 with prime) to replace a very slow booting Toshiba with a 2.5 inch hard drive that my wife and guests use. After removing the old drive, I cut a couple of small pieces of popcorn packing material to stabilize the mSATA card, since there is no frame with the adapter, and everything worked perfectly. After installing, I just booted from the rescue media and re-installed the image of the old hard drive. The boot time is only about 20 seconds now!!! What a difference being able to use my old discarded mSATA made in this laptop.
