Best USB to SATA adapter!

Please recommend some USB to SATA adapters, 2.5"/3.5"/5.25" compatible, which you have personally used and worked the best.

I'm thinking of buying one of these two:

  1. I've used several and the one I still have is the Thermaltake Blacx

  2. Thanks for the reply.
    I've never heard of this brand before, but that is not a problem for me.
    Plus i don't care for not supporting floppy disks, so that's not a problem too.But i didn't see anywhere 5.25" support which i do care.So i'm not quite sure yet.
    For the time being, im leaning more towards my 1st choice http://www.sharkoon.com/?q=en/node/2466 where i also asked sharkoon and they told me that it also supports 4TB HDDs.
  3. Thanks for replying.
    I know this particular product you're showing me, but i don't really like enclosures, plus it lacks the 5.25" support that i also want.
    And just for extra info, if i were to buy an external enclosure, i'd buy the one below [IcyBox IB-120CL-U3]

    you can connect 2 HDDs at once and you can also copy one another without the need of a PC, but thanks anyways!
  4. Theres no such thing as a sata or IDE floppy drive. You cannot attach a FDD to any of these devices. When they talk about 5.25" drives they are meaning cd, dvd, bluray drives.

    The icydock box is pretty nice.
