3 out of 5 eggs APRICORN IDE/PATA/SATA to USB HDD Adapter 03/01/2013

This review is from: APRICORN ADW-USB-KIT IDE/PATA/SATA to USB HDD Adapter

Pros: Great & Very Easy to use when it works.
Simple hook up & Cloning when it works.

Cons: Do not bet the farm that it will recognize your hard drive.

It has a very cute error message that is clearly intended to make you think the problem is your hard drive rather than their Software.
I have used it on a fair number of BRAND NEW (major manufacturer) SATA drives and have found 30% are not recognized.
Apricorn Tech support wants me to send the unit in. That's just making me spin my wheels for a software problem they choose to ignore.
Others have observed this problem yet it remains unresolved. It's no wonder that the Software is now version 4.
They need to get off their keesters and resolve the problem with Version 5.

Other Thoughts: The hardware is decent.
The software is only great when it works.
