Amazon has the Sabrent USB 3.0 to SSD 2.5-inch SATA Hard Drive Adapter available for just $5.49 when you enter promo code 3SDSSHD at checkout, taking almost half off this item's average selling price of $10.

This adapter allows you to connect any 2.5-inch SATA hard drive to your computer via USB 3.0. You may not be able to get those old laptops in your closet to turn back on, but you could open them up to remove their hard drives and then access the files on them by simply connecting it to your current computer with this adapter.

This item is also really useful if you have something like the Western Digital external hard drive we posted earlier. Sometimes the casing around these types of hard drives can cause connection issues between the hard drive and the device connected, leaving you needing to remove the drive from the casing and connecting it via a SATA adapter if you still want to access the files.

The Sabrent adapter features an LED light to indicate when it's powered on and active, and currently has over 1000 reviews leaving it with a 4.7 out of 5 star ranking on Amazon.
