Don't get shitty adapters like this. You want UASP support. The JMS578 controller is what most people recommend. You can find adapters with this controller on Amazon for $6 all day.
It's a useful thing to have to connect an extra SATA drive in a pinch. Very convenient for SSD upgrades:

Connect the new drive via this cable;
Mirror the existing drive onto the new one with something like Macrium Reflect;
Swap the old drive with the new one.
Horrible reviews...

Would this work for an external portable HD to connect to a NVR camera system with an Sata III connection?

No, this converts a 2.5" HDD or 2.5" SSD to USB. If you NVR has USB then you could just plug in the portable HDD. But if you need to connect a HDD to a sata 3 port sounds like you need to just buy a bear hard drive to add to it.

The greatest problem I see with this design is that even USB 3.0 may not adequately power a mechanical HDD. A separate power adapter would be more appropriate.

Anyone know if this passes the drive information on to the PC? I couldn't use macrium last time bc my Sabrent USB adapter doesn't show up as a native drive in Windows.

This has also been my experience. Would probably be fine for 2.5 SSD but a mech drive, maybe/maybe not.

generally shouldn't be a problem. Plenty of external 2.5" HDD's plug in via a single USB only. I've only run into a couple of oddball systems in about 10 years that made me plug in a second USB cable if they've got the double plug thing going on.

Can't vouch for this specific model, but I'm using an UASP USB 3.0 adapter to connect an old 2.5'' SSD to my Raspberry Pi 4; newer firmware supports boot from USB which means no more finicky SD cards, and it's significantly faster as well.

The last 2 laptop drives I did wouldn't work with this type of adapter, had to bust out the one with the power brick. Either way be aware or buy one with extra power for $2 more

I have had good luck with USB-powered Seagate Solid State Hybrid Drives (SSHD) running a node 24/7 for months.
