*Nice* adapter 02/26/2012
This review is from: Vantec 2.5"/3.5"/5.25" SATA/IDE to USB 2.0 Adapter - Model CB-ISATAU2
Used successfully thus far, with a single exception (see Cons), with multiple 3.5" IDE and SATA HDs, and an IDE CD burner. Good performance. Also works with 2.5" (laptop) IDEs.
Tried it with a <> 20/yr old 340Mb IDE HD to see what was there. Adapter had it tagged as a 2Tb disk. Didn't try to use such an old disk.
Combine this with rubber/silicone drive sleeves (not carried by Newegg that I could find) such as are sold by SIIG, and you've got a universal external drive setup.
