5 out of 5 eggsWorks nice

Pros: It works. Pretty good USB speeds. Small size is convienent.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I used an extra SATA and power cable lying around with it so that the drive isnt joined right to it, I dont know why but I like it better that way.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it.

Pros: - Works as advertised.

- Good speeds.

- Has a power switch on it so you can turn the drive off without unplugging it if you want.

Cons: - The rubber band like enclosure doesn't cover the bottom of the drive which is the most susceptible to damage. However, having said that my g/f did knock a 750 GB Seagate off the table (maybe 3 feet on to carpet) on to the floor at least 2x in this thing and it's still functional (not sure who gets credit there).

- As other people have said, connections are a bit loose, and that is due mostly to the very stiff cable it comes with.

- Never goes on sale. I've been waiting for ages to get another one ;/

Other Thoughts: I got it for $15 because of some coupon code but as stated above, this has never been on sale to my knowledge. I think $10-$15 is fair but $20 seems high for this without a real enclosure.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Adapter

Pros: Fits almost all HP laptop drives without having to remove the drive from the drive cage. The amount of time saved by this feature alone makes it worth the purchase price.

Cons: None that I've noticed.

3 out of 5 eggsBombed.

Pros: Promising.

Cons: Bombed. I suppose it was rather TOO flimsy.

The connections particularly...

Other Thoughts: I think to find a more sturdy simpler port without the doo dads and all. I will keep looking.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent controller, okay design.

Pros: -The best USB3.0 adapter you will find for the price
-Included A/C adapter can power pretty much any HDD (Those that do not include one can only power 2.5" drives)
-Small! This will easily fit into a laptop bag.
-Quick transfer speeds
-The A/C adapter's plug disconnects for easy storage
-Includes sleeves for a 2.5" and 3.5" drive to mount the adapter properly
-Will read any HDD that has been formatted in a fashion that the OS understands.
-The logo glows blue as an access indicator

Cons: -The form factor comes at a bit of a cost. The plug will slip out of a non-sleeved HDD EXTREMELY easily, unless you turn it upside down and never touch it.
-The included USB3.0 wire is thick. Normally this is good, but it's so thick that it has a tendency to push the adapter out of the HDD.
-The A/C plug is required to power laptop drives, despite the fact that they're more than capable of working off of USB power
-Transfer speeds with some drives can be sporadic, but it's not a common problem.

Other Thoughts: It's an excellent adapter, but it would have been nice if a cable to extend the SATA data/power plug had been included. I would have actually given it 5 stars that way, as this device's biggest problem really is that it doesn't grip the drive it's connected to properly.

Desktop HDD's don't get any sort of cooling when they're not sitting in a tower, so you'll want to monitor their temperature carefully if they're a high-RPM hard drive.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks as advertised, but check your USB settings

Pros: Small, allows quick disk swap for tasks like wiping or cloning harddrives. No messing around with screws or sharp metal contraptions.

It supports USB 3.0 (and comes with a USB 3.0 cable).

External power supply allows power hungry 3.5" HDDs to be connected.

Cons: Loose connector. There is no locking mechanism, so once the connector is plugged in, and the switch is turned on, I am afraid to touch anything.
Insufficient documentation, and lack of web site support (the model # cannot even be found on the Rosewill website). I had a problem on my Windows 7 computer where USB drive would disconnect and reconnect every 2 seconds. I almost RMA'd the item. I had to do some research first, and it turns out USB power saving must be disabled in power settings. This was neither in the manual nor on Rosewill web site.

As for the uneven space between the device and the drive, if you put the drive on its back, there is no problem. So that's not a big issue for me.

Other Thoughts: Not all wiping software works on USB external drives. I was able to use this with Eraser.

I have tried several Harddrives in different sizes/make/model and they all worked great (they were all less than 1TB)

5 out of 5 eggsAn IT must!

Pros: This is a cheap, fast, and awesome setup for retrieving data from hard drives. I have been using this a lot to backup user info on machines that have completely died and clone images to new hard drives. This has saved my company time and money!

Cons: As explained in previous reviews, the adapter will not quite line up evenly with the hard drive. The kit does provide you with a rubber case for the drive to lift it up for even line up.

My solution to this has been to either flip the hard drive up side (usually for quick jobs) or let the adapter just hang off the table while connected to the drive.
