4 out of 5 eggsWatch Jumpers, USB power

Pros: Compact, easy to switch drives you're working on, good value for the price.

Cons: Drives won't start if not jumpered correctly.

Other Thoughts: USB Power: I was working on a computer and had the power supply shut off, and the hard disk lights and fans on the PC started coming on and going back off about once per second. I thought that was odd, so I unplugged the power. It kept happening, which weirded me out. Turns out this drive adapter backfeeds power into the USB A connector! Fortunately the power design is smart enough to just shut down on overload.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I love this thing so much. I can rip open a computer case and plug my laptop directly into a desktop's drive. Also, instead of buying multiple usb hard drives, I just by the drives and use them one at a time with this thing. I don't know how I survived so long without this thing.

Cons: It is kind of a mess of wires, that theoretically may be organized better.

1 out of 5 eggsAvoid like the plague

Pros: I suppose allowing you to connect random drives using USB, without having to muck with an enclosure

Cons: This adapter does not seem to pass drive errors, such as CRC errors, onto the OS. I had a file I was reading off a drive connected with this, and each time the file was slightly different. I connected the drive using a full enclosure and find the drive was giving occasional CRC errors, which this adapter did not pass on.

Other Thoughts: If you value the integrity of your data, avoid this adapter like the plague.

3 out of 5 eggsNot for optical drives

Pros: Works with hard drives fine, actually advertises on box that it will work with more than one device at a time (if you can fit both sets of connections at once which wouldn't be a problem for one 3.5" IDE and any size SATA).

Cons: Doesn't work with optical drives. I tried this with two DVDRW drives (one just over a month old) under two Vista installations and unlike my old external IDE only to USB 2.0 connector, I couldn't successfully watch or burn a DVD using this adapter.

Other Thoughts: I bought this exact adapter at a retail store, not NewEgg.

5 out of 5 eggsSuh-weet!

Pros: Worked great right out of the box. I am using Vista and was able to recover data right away from some hard drives i was afraid i would never get any more data off of.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Good instructions, simple to use and has been great to have.
