1 out of 5 eggsDoesn't work

Pros: None? Was cheap on sale

Cons: Doesn't work. I've tried this on several SATA drives on multiple machines. The disks spin but nothing ever shows up, USB is never detected.

2 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: Small, Easy, quick. Lets me use extra salvaged Hard Drives as external backup.

Cons: Didn't seem to be working first time I used it. No idea why...

Other Thoughts: Now it's 1/11/16 and yesterday I tried using it to look at a stack of IDE drives and only one out of about 10 drives worked. My old USB IDE thing works with all of them. So... this thing only works well with SATA drives. Pretty useless for IDE drives and that was the main reason I bought it.

4 out of 5 eggsDoes Not Work With Windows 10!

Pros: Used this for years. Great device for data transfer! After upgrading to Windows 10, or while doing data transfer on a new Windows 10 machine, the unit causes every drive that is connected to it as needing formatting/unreadable. FYI.

Cons: Worked fine with every Windows OS until 10.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks perfectly

Pros: it is not as pretty as an actual docking station, however since it is not a docking station it can plug into almost anything. For example I have used it for an old hard drive to see what was on it, was also able to play DVDs using my old IDE DVD drive I had lying around.

Cons: none so far

4 out of 5 eggsWorked as expected

Pros: unlike most SATA to USB adapters this one is able to plug into and power the older IDE hard drives, and if you have some info on an old hard drive that you have no way of getting this is a godsend.

Cons: none so far

Did you find this review helpful? Yes No
