1 out of 5 eggsBroke after a day

Pros: Flexible, supports 40/44 pin IDE and SATA.

Cons: Broke after a day. Worked fine on day one, but on day 2, the attached drive would disappear from the USB bus when transfering files. Tried with multiple drives and computers, no luck... Time to RMA.

Other Thoughts: The included power adapter has a molex output connector and can be used to power other things.

1 out of 5 eggsRefunded for money back at a loss

Pros: If it had performed properly...portability, ease of use, quick way to clone without shutting down

Cons: Fried two brand new drives (click, click , click). Returning for money back. Unfortunately at a loss. Purchase at your own risk!

5 out of 5 eggsCoping drives, get this!!!

Pros: This device works, what else can I say. You will need a software to use it, but once you do you'll wonder how you did with out it.

Cons: there's a lot of wires laying around while you're doing the project. The power cord they send is junk. Just cheap made and doesn't fit tight in the device connector. advise on using a old one out of a power supply laying around

1 out of 5 eggsIt does nothing

Pros: N/A

Cons: Power brick was not functional. Could not provide power to either of the drives I plugged into it. I moved it to different outlets and double checked the connections. Clearly it's defective.

There may be a lot of these defective Vantec products on the market, as this purchase did not come from Newegg. Don't buy this product from any vendor unless you like chancing a high likelihood of getting something that just doesn't work.

Other Thoughts: There was a shard of plastic stuck in the male end of the molex adapter on the end of the power brick large enough to block the connection. I had to fish it out with a knife. After that the brick still couldn't provide power.

Wish I could have said something positive but I just couldn't. It just doesn't work, and it's very poorly made.

5 out of 5 eggsNice thing to have around

Pros: After I bought a cheap one of these hard-drive-to-USB adapter cables, and it burned up a drive, I purchased THIS one. It works very well, especially for such a small investment. The power source is logical and it has an on-off switch so that you can change drives, even IDEs, without turning the computer off. Works for laptop drives, too.

Cons: While it isn't entirely clear which end of the IDE connector should go on the 1 pin, it's pretty easy to draw a conclusion, and nothing bad happens if you put it on backwards.

5 out of 5 eggsNice tool to save data

Pros: USB 2 means I can use in on almost any system. No enclosure means I don't even have to remove the drive from the system to use it. Very easy to use.

Cons: While a USB 3 device would be faster I knew this when buying it. Power brick is a little large.

Other Thoughts: Have used to get files from HD's when system died, and to recover files from a formatted HD. Solid choice for a basic tool.
