StarTech USB3SSATAIDE overview

  • 1Description

The black USB 3.0 to IDE/SATA Adapter Cable from StarTech connects any standard 2.5" or 3.5" SATA or IDE hard drive to a computer through an available USB 3.0 port (backwards compatible with USB 2.0). The adapter lets you externally connect a bare drive with no enclosure or HDD dock required, thus saving time and hassle.

It features LED indicators that allow you to easily monitor the status and activity updates.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice addition to toolset Does exactly what it's supposed to. I easily recovered the data from a stack of ancient hard drives. Comes with an assortment of international power cords.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not compatible with StarTech PexUSB3S25 PCI-express card! I've used a StarTech USB 3.0 PCI-express card to give my computer USB 3.0 functionality for quite some time. It's worked wonderfully. When I first attached a SATA drive to my StarTech card using the StarTech adapter, it worked fine. However, as soon as I ejected the drive from my system, my computer would no longer recognize any drive or card reader connected to the card's USB port. I contacted StarTech support (they offer great support!). We uninstalled & reinstalled the card & drivers with no success. They determined that there was either a physical or software incompatibility with their card & their adapter. They replaced the card for free & told me not to use the adapter with the new card. So, the adapter is now useless. I bought this adapter specifically because of the StarTech name recognition but, according to the support tech, they don't test their products for compatibility with each other.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great device Old hard drives laying around in storage because you are afraid to take them to the dump? This tool is perfect for looking at those old hard drives and getting them wiped. USB 3 interface is excellent. Just ensure the hard drive is spun up to full speed before plugging into the USB port, and you'll see your hard drive appear.
