Rating: 5/5 Great Product, Nice Price! May 10, 2019 The product was out-of-stock when I first ordered. However, it was worth the modest wait as it is a GREAT product and works exactly as it should. I had the previous generation (USB 2) version and wanted to upgrade to USB 3 for the speed improvement. It is very handy to connect a “raw” drive with such little effort. Especially if you regularly work with such drives, this is an indispensable tool.

I would recommend this item to a friend! Customer Videos:
