      the product came in on time and in great shape -- the USB to SATA cable/converter works great with my SSD drive - it boosted the transfer speed by 2X at least -- the disk copy software works great - the USB 3.0 work fine with my motherboard USB 3.0 ports - if you want faster transfers' to a SSD or low power HD bare drive this is it - the cable has both SATA inteface and power for the SATA device - this would work well to upgrade your HD to a SSD in your LapTop - just ghost the HD to the SSD and then swap out the HD for the SSD

      I didnt like this product. It failed twice when I tried to migrate the data to my external ssd. I have 1TB disk, but the data I selected was 350GB, external ssd was 512 Gb. But the copy failed twice.
      It started and went up to 10% then failed.
      Badly wanted to return this, but I threw the box, not sure whether I can return it.

            Comments about Apricorn SATA Wire 3.0 Notebook Hard Drive Upgrade Kit with USB 3.0 Connection:

            I used this to clone my laptop's HDD to a higher capacity, faster drive. The only issue I had with this was that the partitioning did not copy over exactly as I had specified in the software. I fixed this with a freeware partitioning program, so it wasn't a big deal, just a little inconvenient. Be careful with Windows, you will need to get the OS to "refresh" key CPU drivers or it WILL NOT perform any Windows updates.

                This was a very slick interface to clone an older hard drive onto a much larger SATA hybrid drive. It was disappointing that it wouldn't work with a USB 3.0 via expansion card, but didn a perfect (if slower) job with USB 2.0

                                This product is pretty straight forward. Instructions are easy to understand, and the software does what is advertised. It took me about an hour to copy my old hard drive, installed my new ssd drive and I was up and running with no problems. Very easy to do.

                                So, it is fast reliable and easy to use. I have cloned 8 laptops so far with this.

                                          Used the adapter to connect and retrieve files from a HD with a corrupted Win 7 operating system. Connection was simple and we were able to retrieve all data files with absolutely no problems.

                                          We had previously purchased another IDE/SATA drive adapter that wanted to reformat the drive in order to connect it, which would have wiped out all the data files!

                                            the product came in on time and in great shape -- the USB to SATA cable/converter works great with my SSD drive - it boosted the transfer speed by 2X at least -- the disk copy software works great - the USB 3.0 work fine with my motherboard USB 3.0 ports - if you want faster transfers' to a SSD or low power HD bare drive this is it - the cable has both SATA inteface and power for the SATA device - this would work well to upgrade your HD to a SSD in your LapTop - just ghost the HD to the SSD and then swap out the HD for the SSD

                                              Bought this so that I could upgrade my new laptop hard drive from 320 GB to a 500GB purchased from B&H as well. I thought it would be rocket science to do so, but this cable made it easy. Best of all, I didn't even need to install the software, it has an option to run from disk... and in a few minutes my disk had been copied. I plugged in the new disk and its as though my laptop was shipped with a 500GB disk...

                                              Great cable if you plan to upgrade any computer drive to larger capacity.

                                                Great product and easy to use. Read and follow istructions and it is a breeze.I recomend downloading the latest version of the software and just run it from there. I cloned and installed a 480G Sandisk SSD on my Asus laptop in about 45 minutes.

                                                  This is a very easy product to use, just pop the CD in your optical drive and follow the instructions and done. The program will do the rest, no need to worry if your other HD is bigger than the one you are replacing. Your old HD information will be copy to the new HD to include Outlook settings and other personnal settings. Two laptops done very quickly.
                                                  Works with Solid State Hard drives as well as a hybrid drives.
