I am someone who always buys with the motto of 'buy cheap, buy twice' and so I very nearly went for an expensive SATA to USB cable; however, with Christmas having just passed I was feeling the squeeze and so reluctantly opted for this cable over the more expensive ones. I have no regrets.

This is an excellent quality cable that I have used to recover data from a few old laptops I have in my attic. I now only use MacBooks and this cable worked perfectly. Once plugged in, all the hard drives appeared on my desktop within a few seconds and I found the data transfer extremely quick. The cable is very well made and feels like a quality product that will last me a life time, as does the storage case which can either be used to store a hard drive in or for storage of the cable.

I am extremely happy that I went for the 'cheap option' and ignored my impulse to buy the most expensive.

THIS IS A QUALITY PRODUCT THAT WORKS WELL WITH A MAC.

I purchased this separately at the same time as buying my first SSD because it was much cheaper than buying an SSD with a 'laptop kit' (the transfer software can also be downloaded without cost).

I used it to connect my old Toshiba R500 Portege to a shiny new Crucial M4 SSD and it plugged into the SSD without problem, and the subsequent data transfer went without hitch (although the SSD itself locked down into 'safety mode', but that's another story). As is described on the item, after you've ripped out your old drive, you can store it in this box and use as an external USB drive if necessary.

Buy once, use forever. Recommended.

worked like a charm, plug in and play style for upgrading hard drive to ssd, using cloning software. three stars as the plastic case which is supposed to hold and store spare hard drive seems too tight for any hard drive, and couldn't use it for that, yet using latest and standard size drives. Otherwise cable works.

This is a great item. Anyone who owns a laptop and has tried to replace the hard drive will know it is a little daunting because if the hard drive fails you lose everything. You can back it up but that means either having a desktop drive, which kind of negates the effect of having a portable laptop or carry a pocket sized one.

My laptop started having some issues and I felt it was best to replace it before it failed completely. I bought this because I needed some way of pushing the stuff from my old drive onto the new one. There are plenty out there, many need power adapters, many need them but don't come with them.

This on the other hand is a double USB. One USB is used to connect the hard drive via a SATA slot into a USB, this is the same as a regular USB memory stick, you get an installing message and then you can open it up and move whatever files are on there about as you wish. The second USB is for power purposes. Some hard drives require a power supply, I believe these are more the 3.5 inch desktop drives and that is where the second USB comes in. One USB to power the drive (if it needs it) and one to transfer the data.

Easy to use, cheap and fast. Couldn't be happier with it and the plastic cover makes handling an internal hard drive out on the desk that little less daunting. Still make sure you don't drop it since this won't protect from much but general moving around on a desk it is a nice idea.

Much recommended.

Works perfectly when moving from and HDD to SSD. The only advice I have is to use the main USB ports on the rear of your PC as the front ones on mine didn't seem to provide enough power and dropped the connection after 30 seconds into the cloning process. Great value for money, hope this helps!

Magrating from hd to ssd with this usb adapter, easy as can be. Arrived day before christmas. Now all i have to do is find software to clone my old win 7 from hd to ssd. I am contemplating Paragon software and may report here when i do eventually clone my old system But already i used this cable to connect old drive into usb port to view files etc. wonderful and quick, also, i only used the thick usb cable and transfer was ok. when cloning i will plug both in though as this may speed things up. nice little container box for the old drive, fits nice and snug, plugs in via opening at opposite end. Looks fairy robust and i am glad i paid a bit extra for that box, to keep my old drive and its connections safer than they would be when exposed

Used it to retrieve HD data from My Samsung NC10 which had become faulty. It's so simple to use. Plug the hard drive into the SATA and connect the USB to the device you're transferring to. It basically turns your internal hard drive into a Passport style portable hard drive. I had the data retrieved within seconds saving a lot of money taking it to a specialist. Very impressed.

Product turned out great. I used it to clone my Mid 2010 MacBookPro 13' HDD to a Samsung Evo 850 SSD. The cloning took about an hour and a half to complete though, but it went with no problems and flawlessly. Once the cloning was done, I replaced the HDD with the SSD and voila! the transfer went perfect. At first, I was a bit uneasy as to whether I should buy this cable adapter since it was cheap. However, seeing the prices of other cable adapters, I thought I will be only using it once and then probably I won't be using it anymore. In the end it worked like a charm, so no regrets.
