5 out of 5 eggsMy favorite adapter

Pros: The only adapter I've found with the 12V ground needed for powering larger drives. Much more solidly built than others, and I love that the lappy adapter isn't simply a little circuit board that pricks me when I use it.

Cons: Some have trouble with the molex being a tight fit, but a little bit of shaving with a straight-edged razor fixes that in a minute or two. I've never had a problem with the IDE connector coming out, but that may be because I have the drive on a large flat surface and don't move it.

Other Thoughts: I bought several other adapters before finding this one. None of the others were anywhere near as solidly built as this one. No flimsy parts, no exposed wiring or circuit boards and it works every time. If some have had to replace it after a year, I'd like to know how they treat their other hardware.

3 out of 5 eggsNice...

Pros: Great for the retrieval of data of IDE hard drives when needed.

Cons: The 4-pin power connector doesn't fully fit any of the hard drives i've tested it on (WD and Seagate). Also, you can't really move the hard drive (not that you would want to anyways) once its plugged in, the adapter has the tendancy to fall out.

Other Thoughts: Great product that does what it needs to do.

5 out of 5 eggsWORKS GREAT

Pros: Built well, comes with laptop HDD adapter, good transfer speeds, no instabilities (with small exception noted below)

Cons: none for me

Other Thoughts: May have an issue with cr@ppy HDDs. I was recovering data from a Seagate 30ish GB and after a few minutes of continuous file transfers the HDD would go offline (I'm not listing it as a con b/c it did work and those drives are completely cr@p anyway). Has worked perfect on all my WDs, Toshiba and Hitachi laptop HDDs, DVD burners and even an old 27GB IBM Deskstar.

4 out of 5 eggsSo So!

Pros: I like that you get a mobile hard drive adapter for nothing. Speed seems just fine considering the hard drive that you use. Only gets a 4 because of mobile hard drive adapter.

Cons: Disk will go offline if it is not used, and you must go into Disk management and turn it online. This was the only issue that I have ran accross yet, but it is a biggie.

5 out of 5 eggsworks well so far

Pros: unfortunatly nothing lasts forever. there things are cheap. so after a year or so you replace it - big deal. It worked, it's cheap and in the field you don't have to pop an extra box to get it in. Just plug it into your laptop and get to work.

Cons: -
