(5 stars) a must-have for modern systems

By: DavidtheBorg
I have 2 now, they are indispensable, work excellently with my 1 tb ssds (Samsung 860EVO). yes, adapter gets a little hot, but nothing a little heat sink wouldn't help. use these for boot disks on my Mac, and they have worked perfectly. high-speed and UASP support were a must when I was looking for a replacement for my old SSD adapters.

(2 stars) Adapter gets very hot

By: jackie272
I bought this adapter a few month back and I haven't been pleased. The adapter gets very hot and that heat transfers to my SSD. This has an impact on my SSDs ability to mount and access files. At this moment it's so hot that I can't navigate the directory tree for the drive and I'm forced to unplug it from the computer and let it cool off.

(5 stars) 100 percent perfect

By: Richardhc
I have used this for about 6 months for cloning my hard drives. It works perfectly, much better than using an external SATA housing for the drive. Very well made, high quality, I just love it.
