poor form factor
Pros: Communicates correctly with the host controller, doesn't get hot.
Cons: Physically awkward in all regards.
Other Thoughts: While the lack of a 15cent switch is dumb the cables are a hazard to drives. At entry to the adapter case they sport heavy heads with molded tapers like you'd want on a vacuum cleaner cord to protect the flex point from insulation tears. The USB cable is both fatter and stiffer than the metal mesh sheathed extension cable it's attached to. They're far too industrial for a five ounce adapter or to manage in the presence of a loose drive.

Pros: SATA connector is well designed/works well. Used it. Works fast.
Cons: 3.5" IDE keeps falling off. Hard to line up. Connector lines up off-center. Poorly designed. Has different number of pins than IDE standard. Tried to find IDE extender to make it work better. Could not find extender.
Other Thoughts: Have not used 2.5" IDE. Going to find another brand. Bytecc is on my "Do not buy" list.
