Designed to connect directly to HDD SATA data/powe
I purchased this item to replace my USB 2.0 equivalent which I have used many times to backup client computers without the need to physically remove the hard drive. Unfortunately, unlike my 2.0 setup, this adapter is designed to plug straight into a fully SATA (power and data) hard drive. The first machine I had to recover using this product had a molex power plug and I could not plug the SATA data cable into the adapter as it requires either a direct hard drive connection or a very specific extension cable. Additionally, this product comes with UK and EU power cables which I did not need and likely kicked up the price a little over the competitors.
