I bought this converter because bad RAM crashed my PC and corrupted WinXP. Since I had to re-install Windows I upgraded my primary SATA hard drive, but I forgot to pull some important files from the old one. Enter this SATA-to-USB adapter. I just plugged in my old drive, it mounted like any other enclosure, and within in minutes I had copied my files.
Note that this device comes with a power brick that has a SATA power connector (not pictured). What's a bit odd is that the power supply has no power switch -- you just plug in your drive to power it up, and unplug the cord to power it down. This is not a problem, of course, but a switch might have been a practical addition.
The actual USB 2.0 performance seems good. I didn't benchmark it, but I had no trouble moving large 1-2GB files, which shouldn't be a problem with any USB 2.0 interface in principle, but I've had USB 2.0 enclosures that choke with big files or flake out from time to time. But not this one, apparently.
And excellent little gizmo.
Do not hesitate to use this product for recovery or file transfer operations. However, due to the nature of this product, you will have wires strewn about during use, so it not ideal if you are looking for something to use regularly for external data storage. In any event, it was clearly designed for the former use and not the latter.
As others have noted, it requires an outlet for power, rather than drawing it directly over the USB connection. Please do not plan to use as mobile connection for your external storage.
Hope this was helpful.
I've had these for over a year and it still works as normal.
It really shouldn't be complicated to connect a drive and just expect it to work. Steer clear of this garbage; it just doesn't function properly. I've spent more time and hassle trying to get it to work than it's worth.
My current PC is running Windows 8 and my old hard drive had Windows XP installed on it.
I highly reccomend the Sabrent Converter.
