1 out of 5 eggsabsolute garbage

Pros: there are none

Cons: the unit arrived dead. The power cord and the USB adaptor are non functional. even with different power to my hard drive USB adapter would not work

Other Thoughts: if you're thinking about buying this don't it will cost you more than half of what you paid to ship it back for RMA. I will never be purchasing anything from Vantec again

1 out of 5 eggsInexpensive SATA to USB adapter

Pros: Inexpensive if it wouldn't have been defective.

Cons: Product arrived DOA. While trying to make it work I also noticed that is was very awkward using it. The solid state drives I was trying to clone to are very small and light weight. This adapter has one wire that goes to the SATA port and another one for power. I found that wherever I placed the drive on my desk one of the cables was tugging on the drive and pulling it off the desk. I ended up borrowing a friends Thermatake BlacX docking station to do the cloning. This worked much better, the drives just popped into the dock and I was done.

1 out of 5 eggsJUNK

Pros: SATA to USB adapter dongle works.

Cons: Power supply is JUNK. 12 volt output is 0 volts when unit is powered on, NEGATIVE 1.2 to -2.6 volts is switched off. I'm glad I tested it with a multimeter before connecting a drive to it.

Other Thoughts: DO NOT BUY IF YOU CARE ABOUT YOUR DRIVES!

1 out of 5 eggsSave Your Money

Pros: Newegg delivered the item very quickly. I was impressed. I received this one a lot faster than one ordered from a different online store!

Cons: Too bad it was a lousy product. Like a lot of reviews posted here, my a/c power unit was not functional. I should have placed more faith in the reviews. Also, the adapter for the IDE drives is made from very flimsy plastic. It is very easily broken. This happened to me twice. I thought at first it was my fault so I purchased another one. Big mistake.
I would have rated this a zero eggs if it was possible.

Other Thoughts: I purchased locally a different brand and I am completely satisfied with it.

1 out of 5 eggsPower Adapter is Junk

Pros: USB Adapter seems well built, I really like the Molex to SATA adapter.

Cons: Power Adapter, is SUPER CHEAP! It died after 5 seconds being plugged into the wall. The Construction is very poor, most of the adapters like this are sonic welded together, this one I was about to separate in the palm of one hand. It's really too bad they cheaped out and chose a bad vendor for their power supplies.

Other Thoughts: Buy a different one, or use the power adapter from the PC, not really possible when working with laptops.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes the job

Pros: It saves you the headache of opening up your computer and hooking it up. Personally IDE is outdated and I bought it to recover people's hard drive quickly.

1 out of 5 eggsNot reliable

Pros: none

Cons: 0 % reliable at transferring data to a hard drive. Attempted various configurations and computers and in every case the transfer failed to transfer data do to write errors.

Bought 2, both going back.

1 egg rating simply because thats the minimum

Don't waste your time.
