Unboxing



The device is rather small and is barely larger than the SATA/Power port combined. The adapter was well packaged within the box and once out it becomes pretty clear this would be easy to stash in a drawer without taking up a whole lot of room. When pulling out the adapter I noticed the USB 3.0 cord is built into it, while the power cord with an in-line switch is separate. I am assuming this is so the user doesn’t accidentally limit themselves to USB 2.0 by grabbing the wrong cord.

I found the device self-explanatory and didn't need the installation guide but it was good to have it included. The adapter plugged firmly into the test drive and the LED light flickered between a red/purple to display activity.

Let's move right on to testing.
