Apricorn AMSW-USB3 overview

  • 1Description

Upgrade your computer's existing mSATA module, add an mSATA SSD as a boot drive, and create an external mSATA drive enclosure using the mSATA Enclosure and Upgrade Kit from Apricorn. Capable of delivering data transfer speeds of over 300 MB/s (port dependent), this enclosure is compatible with desktop and notebook systems, as well as USB 3.0, USB 2.0, and USB 1.1 connectivity.

If you are upgrading your system with a new mSATA module, the old one can be used in this enclosure as an external USB 3.0 SSD. But you don't have to be swapping out an older mSATA module just to use this enclosure. You can simply purchase an mSATA module, install it in this enclosure, and use it as an external USB 3.0 SSD.

The mSATA Enclosure and Upgrade Kit may be used with any computer that has a USB port, but the included EZ Gig Upgrade Suite Software CD is only compatible with Windows 8, 7, and Vista. This software may be used to clone your data between drives. This kit is protected by a limited 3-year warranty.

Please be aware that mSATA modules are sold separately.

Apricorn AMSW-USB3 reviews

mSATA Enclosure and Upgrade Kit is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very practical Very useful, used it to upgrade my 2-in-1 SSD and worked OK, except that for some reason the software wouldn't do the disk mirror correctly the first 2 times. Then I removed the auto adjust parameters option so it kept the original partitions and had to extend the main partition later on with another free piece of software (MiniTool Partition Wizard Free), but eventually it worked great. The possibility to open the unit with manual press-on buttons makes it easier to install the mSATA than with screws. Then I kept the old SSD inside this enclosure as an external drive. Good.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Enclosure Yes! Win10 Version Software Not Yet Available The enclosure works great! Since instructions did not specify that cloning software was Win10 compatible, called Tech Support for a Win10 version. Representative anticipated it would be available in a couple of months--current version usually works. So, I had to find another software product fully Win10 compatible. Believe company should have made this clear so that I could have purchased a similar enclosure w/o the software cost built into the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great drive cloner I got this to clone a new Samsung M SATAdrive. It worked flawlessly. I cloned a 500 GB Drive that was inside my notebook to a one GB Drive that I placed inside the Apricorn device. Using the supplied Apricorn software I cloned a Windows 10 operating system and all of the other software documents pictures etc. I then swapped the drives And turned on my new computer. Presto - 1GB notebook and I now have a very fast 500 GB backup device.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great solution for upgrading internal SSD I purchased a larger internal SSD for my laptop. I purchased the mSATA Enclosure and Upgrade Kit to format and clone my existing OS, software and settings. Both the enclosure and software that came with it worked perfectly. My new larger SSD is now installed in my laptop and I placed my old SSD into the mSATA enclosure and can now use that as a USB drive. It couldn't have been easier.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The worst purchase that i ever made It was totally wasting time and money. Both hardware and software didn't work. Contacted customer service to seek for technical support, but it wasn't helpful at all. Bottom line they told me to buy a usd hub to boost up my laptop's USB port power. ????? Exactly. Instead give me a solution, they told me buy extra stuff to make there product work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as expected Purchased to access a defective SSD I replaced. I have used their EZGig clone software in the past and like it. Did not attempt clone in this case due to errors on SSD removed. Used the enclosure to initialize the replacement SSD. I may get another SSD and use the enclosure to maintain a back up clone of my system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EASY!!!! This unit made upgrading my existing� 200GB MSATA to a 1TB MSATA extremely easy! The included software is easy to use and only took about 15 minuets to complete the mirror transfer. I highly recommend this unit if you are upgrading your main drive on your computer.� (Only compatible with with MSATA units).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Recommended! Top Quality! I wasn't paid for this. I needed to repair and/or format the drive as it was nearly impossible while in the laptop and it worked great! A bit difficult to open/close the enclosure but would make an excellent portable drive. Read and write speeds were nothing short of amazing for a USB connection. It blows away sdhc card speeds.
