Product Testimonial

In working with the SATA to USB 2.0 cable adapter converter the male to female connector was a good tight fit when mated together. When connected to the power supply, power up of the hard drive was instant as the LED indicated. The connector on the converter unit must be aligned properly by aligning the notches in the male connector with the female port of the SATA hard drive before use.

Product Testimonial

This adapter was found to be very easy to use as if a new drive was being installed without opening the PC. The USB 2.0 connection allowed a faster transfer rate than the simple and now becoming obsolete IDE connection. Care should be taken when attaching the IDE connectors to each other and should not be forced together for connection.
