    Sabrent EC-SS31 reviews

    USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A to 2.5" SATA II Adapter Cable is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fastest SATA to USB 3.1 cable I've found so far! =] I bought this SATA cable to connect my spare SSDs to my computer as well as other SSDs I plan to upgrade my boot drive with. Spare SSDs make for great high-speed, high-volume "flash-drives" if the occasion calls for. Sabrent is a great company from my experience. I've ordered their M.2 to 2.5-inch SATA enclosures and all their products come with great warranties and customer service. Right out the box, I tested my WD Green 240GB SSD with this cable to the fastest USB 3.1 ports in my Windows PC (I have a ASUS TUF X299 Mark II motherboard with a Intel i7-7820x Skylake X processor) and got significantly higher read/write speeds for 4K Q32T1 and the Sequentials were very close to as if the SSD were installed internally. The cord has a nice length to it (2ft I think) and it is made of great quality. There is an LED indicator to indicate connection & usage too! If you're looking for a cable like this, this would be a great pick, ESPECIALLY considering the low cost. I hope this helps! =]
