Hello,

What USB3.0 to SATA would you recommend? Or what would you not :)

I plan to buy one from ANKER: https://www.anker.com/uk/products/varia ... TAA-02BUKU
It has USB 3.0, external supply and it works with 2.5" and 3.5". Thanks

Try to find one that supports interface voltages of 1.8V, 2.5V and 3.3V.

CP2104 and PL2303HX rev D are two bridges that can support these lower voltages, but you will probably need to modify them by adding your own 1.8V or 2.5V LDO regulator. Note that the PL2302HX has many clones (fakes) which do not work with Prolific's drivers.

Based on the reviews Orico seems to be a good choice. And they are available in my country also. Thanks

Problem with these things is the power supply, which is generally cheaply made and prone to failure. Also, they allow to move the drive while it's working, which is something that should never be done. Whenever possible I'd recommend using a HDD cage instead, which goes into 2 or 3 5.25" bays and can accomodate 3 to 5 HDDs. They're quite expensive for what they are (usually the price of a good mid-range computer case), but are much more reliable in my opinion. I purchased a Xigmatek 3-in-3 cage which was one of the cheapest and yet one of the best designed I could find (I searched far and wide before opting for that one) : it's a less compact design than most (takes up 3 5.25" bays and has 3 HDD trays – the most common designs take up 3 5.25" bays and have 4 HDD trays) but it allows for a better air flow, it has a 12cm fan on the back, it can accomodate 3.5" as well as 2.5 drives (screws are unnecessary for 3.5"), only gripe I have is the position of the door on the front pannel, which opens from top to bottom, it's a bit awkward when open, otherwise it's exactly what I was looking for ; unfortunately it seems to be discontinued.
