1 out of 5 eggswhich way do you plug the 3.5" ide?

Pros: cheap

Cons: Well, it just didn't work, and I tried plugging every which way I could. I will say this, the little laptop hdd did power on. I have another one, which provides the guides to plug the ribbon cable into - then you can't plug it in backward, but with this - just bare pins sticking out - how do you know which way to plug it?

Other Thoughts: I'm going to go up in price and see if I can find something that actually works, with the guides so you plug the ribbon cable in the proper way

5 out of 5 eggsdoes the job

Pros: it gets the job done just dont expect to use it on many hdd's

Cons: the pins bent fairly easily when i tried to remove it from the first hdd i used it on, bent them back and seem to work, it would be nice if they provided some sort of strap to make removing from hdd's easier

Other Thoughts: it gets the job done and it's cheap

1 out of 5 eggsBEWARE : Don't buy this

Pros: This adapter totally fried the hard drive that I was hired to retrieve the data from. Hard drive was fine originally but adapter was wired wrong and was sending 12 volts to the HD instead of 5 volts. I was able to repair the adapter myself, but the hard drive and all the data is GONE. Newegg hasn't helped, wondering what the manufacturer will do ...

Cons: Fried the hard drive because it was wired wrong. DO NOT BUY THIS.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for servicing/reusing old laptop drives

Pros: -Pretty straightforward and simple. It just connects the 2.5 inch pins to the 3.5 in pins with a molex power connector.

-PC recognized drive straight away like it was any old IDE drive. It even tried to boot off of it (make sure your BIOS boot settings are correct before using so it boots off your CORRECT drive).

Cons: Power connector seems flimsy, but it is obviously purpose built for being an adapter, not for rugged everyday handling.

Other Thoughts: Used it to retrieve data off a dead laptop's hard drive. Worked exactly as planned.

3 out of 5 eggsDidn't work for me

Pros: fits the laptop ide form factor. Looks like it should work.

Cons: Didn't work for me. But I was using really,really old laptop drives. Bent the pins when removing the laptop drive. Broke off the front plastic cover. Too fragile.

Other Thoughts: Might of worked if using a newer laptop hard drive. Will never know. Give benefit of the doubt 3/5

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: -Works as advertised

Cons: -None yet

Other Thoughts: I've read the other reviews here about having to modify the adapter to get it to work right and that made me a bit skeptical about it but when it came in the mail, it hooked up just fine to my old Sony Vaio laptop and interfaced fine with my PC. My guess is the way I received it was the intended product from the manufacturer and these other people that have had to do something to get it to work are the product of either poor quality control from the manufacturer or just that small percentage of acceptable deviation being the loudest. Either way is probably a likely culprit.
