4 out of 5 eggsDoes it's job, but is a little short

Pros: The adapter has not malfunctioned, and it it's small size makes it very easy to store or leave on a desk without causing any intrusions.

Cons: This may have been stated by the manufacturer, though I did not see it anywhere, but the cord is a mere 8 inches long, which is really inconvenient, but I only knocked it down one egg because of that.

5 out of 5 eggsWorked great to upgrade my MacBook Pro to an SSD

Pros: Worked without a flaw. Inexpensive. No drivers and no power supply make it simple and easy to use.

Cons: Slow. I attached an SSD to it and cloned my internal hard drive to the SSD over USB 2 and I got 6 MB/s. That's pretty slow, I'm not sure if it had to do with the adapter or something else. It took 24 hrs to clone 500GB.

Other Thoughts: I used this to upgrade my MacBook Pro to an SSD. This device allowed me to clone the old drive to the new one. Everything worked without a hitch.

4 out of 5 eggsGot the job done

Pros: I got this to upgrade my girlfriends laptop HDD to a SSD. It got the clone/upgrade done with almost no issues(see cons) and so far the copy is working as it should.

Cons: When I first inserted the software disk it booted up without issue, but when I restarted the laptop with the disk in to let it run from start up(say you can do this right on the disk). The disk would not run anymore, what I ended up doing was going the Apricorn website and downloading the latest cloning software. That ran without issue.

Other Thoughts: Paying $18.99 for just a USB 2.0 to SATA Adapter cable, when the software disk didn't work is a bit crazy. But it worked, so I'm only taking off 1 star.

3 out of 5 eggsWill not work for 5.25 drives

Pros: Probably works fine for a laptop 2.5" drive

Cons: I will readily admit that I purchased this in a hurry and didn't read the details to notice that this doesn't work for desktop drives.

I just wanted to add this for the next person who needs to view a desktop 5.25" drive to let them know this will not work.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: No more opening my computer to backup a scribbled OS on a laptop or desktop hard drive. No more need for a live Linux disc either!

Cons: Nothing to remove an egg, just I didn't have a option for color.

Other Thoughts: Cable could be longer.
