works, except for one drive

this will work for all laptop drives, except for the Samsung EVO 850 SSD, as it has a high power requirement, and the included AC adaptor does not compensate enough for this.

Hello Doan, Thank you for leaving your review of the USB3S2SATA3- USB 3.0 to SATA III Hard disk adapter. We apologize for the inconvenience, and would be more than glad to assist you with this matter. What you experienced appears to be due to an incompatibility between the adapter and your SSD. Typically in these scenarios we would recommend using an enclosure or adapter that utilizes a different chipset. For example we have product USB3SSATAIDE, which also supplies 2.0 Amps of current compared to the 1.5 Amps from the USB3S2SATA3. Another option is our USB3S2SAT3CB. Again we do apologize for the inconvenience, and we are always here to assist with our free lifetime technical support. If you have any questions, please get in touch with us and reference case # 303-246003. You can also reply here and we will be sure to follow up with you. Thank You, Customer Support StarTech.com http://www.startech.com/techsupport
