1 out of 5 eggsstupid design

Pros: it does IDE and Sata. I don't think Sata would be much of a problem.

Cons: Power cable not quite standard. USB cable short and dinky on the adapter side. Forget powering your IDE unless you buy an impossible to find IDE extension. Why they covered up IDE power, I don't know. I need 2 AC plugs, 1 for adapter & 1 for IDE hard drive

1 out of 5 eggsFlimsy USB connection

Pros: Connects to most any drive you'd likely have. USB 3.0

Cons: Purchased this item in July 2012 and it's now April 2013. I've used this device just a handful of times and it worked great, but the USB cable has an extremely flimsy connection to the device and has now completely failed. It's unusable. For what I paid I expected to be able to use it for quite some time given that it only comes off the shelf a half a dozen times a year. It is past warranty/return date so after just 6 or 7 uses it's now just more junk from China off to the recylers.

Other Thoughts: I'll look for another similar item with hard wired USB.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Support

Pros: Works exactly as intended, USB 3.0 support, customer support is extremely fast!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This product is easy to setup and use. The main point that made me choose this product is the USB 3.0 support. When I was having trouble getting an old hard drive to work properly their customer support emailed me back in less than 5 minutes. I am located in the US (not sure where their customer support is) and I sent/received numerous (9) emails back and forth from them starting at 10pm local to about midnight.

4 out of 5 eggsOwned The Previous Version

Pros: I owned the previous version with the dual usb ports and it worked great with everything except Hitachi 2.5" IDE drives. Every version of Windows that I had recognized it as well as Linux boxes.

Cons: 2.5" Hitachi Drive support. I don't know if this is a problem with the drives or the adaptor though.

Other Thoughts: I never had to use the second usb connector and I knew well enough that using the power adaptor while laptop drives were connected would kill them and with that in mind, I never had any issues. All in all, a decent little device for a computer tech. I dropped mine and it hasn't worked with sata drives since.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat buy

Pros: Works for any windows. I have tested it under XP, Vista and 7. No drivers required. Windows will install the drivers. Works great every time and never fails. Some people simply can't read instructions and don't know how to use it.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have seen some bad reviews about this product and decided to give my two cents about it. It is a great product, at least the one I bought is and I certainly do recommend it. Don't insert the external power for laptop drives or it will burn it.

1 out of 5 eggsHasn't worked at all

Pros: If it did what it claims it's capable of, that would be a huge Pro. Perhaps I'm missing something simple, in which case feel free to correct me.

Cons: So far, I can't get this thing to work at all. Windows 7 automatically "recognized" the product and installed drivers, however when I plug in a drive it doesn't display in Windows Explorer/My Computer. I tried both a SATA drive and two IDE's with no luck. Their (Coolmax's) website doesn't even list this model yet and there are no drivers or manual for download (nor included in the box).

Other Thoughts: I've found some reviews of the older version of this product (with dual USB plugs for power) and some folks mentioned it "fried" their motherboard. I can't confirm that, but it did make me very nervous to spend too much time troubleshooting this model... To this date, I have not been able to find one review online about this model number.

I love Newegg and use it all the time, but this is the first time I've ever received a product that has so disappointed me.
