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.

2 out of 5 eggsBad Cabels

Pros: Works as intended. Awesome piece of tech for today, for archiving data and retrieving stuff from older drives.

Cons: The 4 PIN to Sata cable adapter is the lowest quality cable I have ever seen.
Cables are not clamped correctly and are falling out of the sockets.
Plastic is already somewhat brittle.
Hard drive connection To PC drops alot due to power cable, the smallest of bump to the cable makes it disconnect for a millisecond- Its impossible to do a proper format and I'm forced to do quick format.

I ended up having to leach of an internal power supply from my tower, instead of using the power supply provided with this product, do the the cable.

Other Thoughts: Works great but man that quality on the cables that came with it suck.

5 out of 5 eggsQuite useful

Pros: Simple plug and play
Fits a variety of legacy devices
Useful for emergencies

Cons: Can be a bit confusing to use

Other Thoughts: This little device was most useful to me when I had a wedding to shoot. Turns out I burned 8 DVDs that had corrupted data, as my current external burner was failing.(I run a system without an internal cd/dvd drive)

Thankfully I had an old system with an internal dvd burner, ripped it out, and hooked it up to this device and it saved my day! Albeit, took another hour or so to burn another 8 DVDs, but this device made it possible!

It can also hook up to older hardrives for data recovery, as well as the newer SATA hard drives!

I really dont use it often, but when I do use it, it's a godsend!
