1 out of 5 eggsNice idea that doesn't work well

Pros: This works with a 300GB WD VelociRaptor drive.

Cons: This does not work as advertised. This is supposed to power up 3.5-inch hard drives and only powers up one of four 3.5-inch drives I tested. It appears that it doesn't provide enough power for most 3.5-inch hard drives, and only powered up a 300GB WD VelociRaptor hard drive, which is 3.5-inch is size, but in reality the platters in this drive are just 2.5-inches in diameter. Instead of powering up the other drives, the light on the device will flash, and you can hear the hard drive spin up partially then stop. This occurs repeatedly with the drives it would not power up.

Drives tested
300GB WD VelociRaptor 10000 RPM SATA III - Success
320GB WD Blue 7200 RPM SATA III - FAILED
500GB Maxtor 7200 RPM SATA II - FAILED
750GB WD Caviar SE16 7200 RPM SATA II - FAILED

Multiple power outlets were tested as well to make sure it was not a power supply issue, and also tried through a UPS.

Other Thoughts: All the tested hard drives are good, and work when installed inside the computer. They just won't properly power up with this external device as advertised it would. It looks like I will need to try one of those hard drives docking stations you plug the hard drives down into instead. StarTech normally has very good products, so this one is a bit of a surprise that it didn't work properly.
