StarTech USB 3.0 to 2.5â SATA III Hard Drive Adapter Cable – Black
The USB3S2SAT3CB USB 3.0 to SATA adapter cable lets you connect a 2.5″
SATA hard drive or solid state drive to your computer through an available
USB port — the easiest way to upgrade the hard drive in your laptop by
adding an external SSD via USB 3.0.
The cable supports UASP, allowing for transfer speeds up to 70% faster
than conventional USB 3.0, which enables you to utilize the full potential
of your SATA III SSD/HDD, when paired with a UASP-enabled host controller.
See our UASP testing results below for further details.
This portable adapter features a lightweight design with no external
power required, for easy storage in a laptop bag or carrying case. Plus,
the cable-style adapter makes it easy to swap between hard drives without
having to install your drives into an enclosure. Perfect for easy drive
access for data migration, drive cloning and data backup applications.
The USB3S2SAT3CB is backed by a StarTech.com 2-year warranty and free
lifetime technical support.
