Agreed, these are useless if you're going to try an install an OS on them as a primary drive. I mean, you could do it in IDE mode but that's less than optimal. Also if you already have the OS installed on a drive that was previously hooked up as AHCI it will not work as a bootable OS drive over USB. You could use it however as a data drive in IDE/USB mode no problems.

Where these things are most useful is for tech work, as you can use them to Ghost/Image or just work on a drive from another PC, regardless of the mode used on the computer you took the drive out of.
Yep. Only for 2.5" drives which don't require external power. 3.5" hard drives and optical drives though require one so need to buy a different version that comes with an external power adapter.

UASP support for those that are wondering.

In for another one of the USB 3.0. So much easier to use than putting SSDs in enclosures.

So with this cable I can take out a hard drive and plug it directly to another computer without having to find or buy an enclosure? and basically turn it into an external hd?

edit: I noticed it's only for 2.5" hard drives.

Any chance in hell this could be used for 3.5" drives, or does it lack power?

The above models don't have the power inputs for 3.5 desktop drives. However, there is a model listed in the dropdown on the amazon page that does. It'll do any IDE/PATA/SATA 2.5-3.5 drive.

Unfortunately the coupon code doesn't work for them, but they are on sale.
