I checked Amazon and NewEgg. Amazon has one but it is sold by a Marketplace vendor. NewEgg stocks it. Reviews aren't as good as the Syba I linked.

The first one I linked should do what you want. It's USB 3.0 and needs only one port.
You are right. That would be an option. Looks solid. Did you ever use that yourself.

No. I personally don't like the idea of using a cable only but that's my personal prejudice (or is it paranoia? Both?). The reviews are good enough, if I needed to have one, I would feel comfortable trying it.

It's only for when we go on the road. I want to reduce bulk. It would be used very rarely because the SSD is only for images and file backup.

If I ever can get an imaging program to work properly with the micro SDXC card, then I would not even need it. But that's another story.

I understand. I'm able to fit both of my little docks in my notebooks carrying case (barely) but they probably wouldn't work for you.

It's curious that imaging programs wouldn't work with micro SDXC cards. Mayhap if they were reformatted to NTFS?

Nah, for Macrium, there is apparently a driver problem in the WinPE. Works fine from the installed program but not with the WinPE. With the SSD everything works.

With AOMEI, it's a real mess. I cant even make an image - regardless what device. That may have to do with the 32bit Windows 8.1 on the system. In post 1440 of this link are the details.

Here is another one by KingWin but the reviews are varied and it may be to flimsy. Sold by Amazon.

Amazon.com : Kingwin USB 3.0 to SATA Adapter for Solid State Drives and SATA HDD : Computer Drive Enclosures : Electronics

And this one:

I have a Seagate FreeAgeny portable drive that can be upgraded with the cables. I use my cable with SSDs all the time and it works great. Never had a problem except the computer recognizes the cable but not the drive, which bever had any affect on anything. I'm sure you can find one easy enough, it's a USB 3.0 upgrade cable for the Seagate FreeAgent.
Newegg.com - Seagate STAE104 FreeAgent GoFlex upgrade cable ? USB 3.0

Try this one it looks like the same thing http://www.amazon.com/Cavalry-Upgrad...%80%93+USB+3.0

This should be it at Seagate. 1st one on page 2. http://www.seagate.com/external-hard...s/accessories/

I've been using the KingWin adp07 for several months, works with both usb2 and 3. Very good usb 3 speeds, those speeds are dependent on what usb 3 chip set you have. I'm satisfied with the KingWin products I have. I recently added a KingWin Dock/rack KF-253-BK and pleased with it's performance.

I have loads of them in my server =) basically mounted several usb hubs inside the case with these plugged in, so can add as many hard drives as I wish inside them. I use usb 2 so dont get super fast speeds, but I dont care for backing up as I just drag and drop and walk away.

Will this cable work to extend coaxial cable for cable box?
Getting a new TV and placing it in a different spot than where the old TV is and I realized the coaxial cable coming from the wall isn't going to reach the new location for cable box's "Cable IN" connection. Can I use this as an extension? It looks right to me but I just want to be sure.
