Red and Green LED's once powered up show operation of the drive while in use. With the SATA to USB 2.0 adapter, your SATA hard drive will transfer it data via the USB 2.0 cable attached to the adapter at the USB 2.0 transfer rate of 480 Mbps, this being the limit of USB 2.0 Specs.

Product Testimonial

 In working with the SATA to USB 2.0 cable adapter converter the male to female connector was a good tight fit when mated together. When connected to the power supply, power up of the hard drive was instant as the LED indicated. The connector on the converter unit must be aligned properly by aligning the notches in the male connector with the female port of the SATA hard drive before use.
