Easily connect a 2.5” SATA hard drive* to your USB-enabled computer with the Rosewill RCUC-16001 USB 3.0 to 2.5" SATA III Hard Drive Adapter Cable with UASP Support. The cable-style adapter features a SATA interface at one end, which is compatible with SATA revision I / II / III (1.5 / 3.0 / 6.0 Gbps). The adapter makes it easy to swap between hard drives without having to install your drives in an enclosure. The USB 3.0 interface at the other end supports super-fast data transfer rates of up to 5Gbps.
