5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It did exactly what I needed it to do.

4 out of 5 eggsworks good

Pros: Works as advertised. No issues.

Cons: Adds some length to the back of the drive - longer than I would have expected, about 1" with IDE connector. Make sure you have enough room to accomodate the extra length.

3 out of 5 eggsWorks, but cheap.

Pros: This product does work...

Cons: But, it is built very cheap. The pins are very thin and easy to bend, and the wires are thin also.

Other Thoughts: I would use this for a permanent installation, such as using a laptop HD in a desktop. But, not for temporary pluging and un-pluging, as it will break.

5 out of 5 eggsHelpful Tool

Pros: It's really nice not to have to use an external 2.5" enclosure. I use these to clone old HDD's when we are ready to upgrade to a bigger size.

Cons: none

4 out of 5 eggsDoes what its supposed to do.

Pros: Small size. PCB not exposed like my older model.

Cons: Wish the housing was solid rather than a semi-flexible rubber.

Other Thoughts: What can you say about a product like this? It will either work or not. This works and works well. Of course, with laptop SATA drives now becoming mainstream, the days of using these adapters will (hopefully) be coming to an end.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks, simple to use

Pros: It's so low tech that a trained monkey could plug it in.

Cons: The pins are a snug fit into the IDE cable, so removing it takes a bit of finesse.
