5 out of 5 eggsHelps get more than salvage-value from IDE Hot-Swap Bay/Caddy

Pros: Well-made adapter, works out of the box. Will allow for an internal desktop connection between an IDE hot-swap bay and motherboard USB 10-pin port -- with a common spare-part.

Cons: Well-made cable is a bit heavy, and pulls down on the IDE plug. I put a couple dabs of Pit-Crew automotive adhesive on the upper plug housing to hold it to the aluminum hot-swap bay chassis.

Other Thoughts: Some 8 years ago, I'd purchased a StarTech DRW115ATABK mobile bay and caddy with extra caddies (~$125 total) and three Hitachi 500GB IDE drives (~$225 total). I used them to back up a WHS v.1 server, which allowed the bundled software (Swap Manager) to provide IDE hot-swapping. The software doesn't work on my 64-bit server OS I use now, but the drives are large enough to fit different categories ("volatile" to "persistent") of files and folders on the server.

Just the C2G cable alone -- together with an old USB2 motherboard-to-external cable with the PCI plate removed -- allows me to use the drives as hot-swap backups. The speed is slower than native IDE, but the backup process uses less than 3% of CPU cycles, and I only need to make these backups with RichCopy 4.0 about once weekly or once monthly depending on the category. The quad-core server can easily do this in the background without hampering server performance. I just wish I'd purchased the C2G product that cost half as much and did the same thing.

5 out of 5 eggsWorkhorse

Pros: Sturdy.
One solid piece.
High compatibility.
Decent transfer speed(usb2.0).
No driver needed! Self installs, even on WinXP. Win V/7, x86/x64.
CD/DVD drive compatible for booting/running a CD with system without an optical drive such as a netbook.
Takes my heavy use servicing many dysfunctional systems.
Worth the price and tons better than those flimsy double-ended cheap excuses.

Cons: Laptop adapter power connection broke off from the base attached by only a wire solder, otherwise data part is good as one solid piece.

Other Thoughts: Have this product for 6+ years and has yet not to identify a drive. Never get an sata/ide-to-usb combo adapter, had the worst luck with those. Dont let lack of reviews keep you away, i was looking for another one because I was wondering if it was available and get the same one, not as a replacement for a failure as is has not failed yet, but the quality is there. I bought this here on newegg and may not register as a verified owner at the time of this writing. Newegg shopper for eight plus years.
