Sata to usb adapter

Hi everyone,

I would like to purchase this (Seagate Barracuda 1 TB 64 MB 7200 RPM 3.5" SATA III (6 Gb/s)) hdd and I would like to connect this to my laptop via an adapter. Could you please suggest which adapter should I go for?

Will the one in this link work? (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B000YJBL78)

Thank you all in advance for your replies.

  1. Yes, but if you will only be using the drive as an external, you should get a real external enclosure for it. You could actually get a drive cheaper if you buy an external box on sale with the same capacity. I saved about 50% on a 2 TB drive, got an external one for $80, an internal one was quite a bit more.

    Hi Hang,

    Thank you for the reply. Could you please tell me from where did you purchase it? I am in Finland.

    And my other question is - I would like to use this external hdd to boot linux from it. Can I do that?

    Thank you.
  3. I got it from Newegg, but I don't think there are any left, they rotate their specials around often. Yes you can setup an external drive to boot a Linux setup from, but you could also just get a 4 gig flash drive and do that. There are tools to make a bootable drive from a Linux live disk.
