Description

Connect a 2.5in / 3.5in SATA or IDE Hard Drive through a USB 3.0 Port. The USB3SSATAIDE USB 3.0 to IDE/SATA Adapter Cable connects any standard 2.5in or 3.5in SATA or IDE hard drive to a computer through an available USB 3.0 Port (Backward compatible with USB 2.0). The adapter lets you connect a bare drive with no enclosure, saving time and hassle.

The USB 3.0 SATA/IDE Adapter lets you externally connect a bare drive with no drive enclosure or HDD dock required, and features LED indicators that allow you to easily monitor status and activity updates.

The adapter cable works with Windows, Linux, and Mac computers and does not require any software or driver installation - a true plug-and-play solution for adding cost-effective external storage, or overcoming incompatibility between all hard drives and USB enabled motherboards that may not be SATA or IDE-equipped.

The USB3SSATAIDE USB 3.0 to IDE/SATA Adapter Cable comes complete with universal adapter and power cords, providing the additional power required to connect 3.5-inch and larger capacity 2.5-inch hard drives.

New tech for old tech
Reviewed by RT. Review Posted 21/01/2015

Great to be able to access old drives without having to pay extra for an unnecessary enclosure.

Surprise bonus! Also managed to connect up an old IDE internal DVD drive, excellent news as I have no disc drive in my laptop.

A few little tricks to get past when connecting some drives (mainly turning it off and on again, standard) and, particularly for IDE, sometimes needing to power up and wait to connect usb.

All in all, a nifty bit of kit for its purpose.
