1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: none

Cons: DOA. Bought in 2012, but didn't need until recently when I needed to access data on some old hard drives I kept from an old computer. It never worked and I didn't have time to troubleshoot it further.

Other Thoughts: I'll try a using a different power source when I have time.

5 out of 5 eggsData Back Up tool kit

Pros: Use this to recovery documents and files for customers for computer that we reformat. The man key to recover data don't use windows to back up from windows. We use linux and just plug in, copy and past home folder and done.

Cons: The IDE connectors are slim line, meaning that the edges of the connector are not thick enough to line up with pins. So if you use IDE drives you need to line up pins, don't just plug it in. I took this for granted the first time and bent some pins. The good part I have the tools to fix the pins.

5 out of 5 eggspower adapter DOA

Pros: Super easy to setup and use and its works well with IDE and SATA, The reader is very small but the power adaptor is not.

Cons: My power adaptor was DOA, I used another one to test the reader.

Other Thoughts: No reason to ding a good reader because it was shipped with a bad power supply.

1 out of 5 eggsIt smells... LITERALLY!

Pros: Ummm...

Cons: The adapter arrived today; I was looking forward to getting my old hard drives backed up to a new drive. I plugged in the adapter and got everything ready to go. The transformer on the adapter was making a weird whining noise, but I didn't think much of it. Then it started to smoke and made a nasty "pop" noise! I immediately unplugged it. Now my whole apartment smells like burnt electronics. Needless to say, I'm more than disappointed.

Pros: It's cheap, easy to use, drivers installed as soon as it was plugged in, the power switch on it helped make any drive function as hot swappable.

Cons: cheaply made

1 out of 5 eggsDefective adapter

Pros: Since this adapter didn't work, I don't have any pros to talk about!!

Cons: I received this adapter with much anticipation that it would be a great addition to my tools but it did not recognize both a PATA or SATA drive and the power cord kept shutting down with any movement of the cord. Began an RMA with Newegg for a refund and found it would cost a little less than what I paid for it. The price differential was so small it was not worth it.
That said, I have high regard for Newegg and have used them for many years without problems and I don't consider it a Newegg problem.

Pros: * It worked when i pluged it into another power source, very annoying but it worked

Cons: The power brick that came with it didnt work so it completely ruined the ease of externaly pluging in a harddrive.

Other Thoughts: Would've been great had my power brick worked.
