Vantec 2.5

3 out of 5 eggs Handy tool while it worked 07/27/2015

This review is from: Vantec 2.5" / 3.5" / 5.25" SATA / IDE to USB 2.0 Adapter - Model CB-ISATAU2

Pros: -very simple to use
-wide range of applications
-worked reliably for a couple months

Cons: -easy to plug in IDE port off center or backwards
-my unit failed after a few months

Other Thoughts: I work on and build PC's as a side business in addition to my day job. I wouldn't exactly call myself a professional but I test a few old IDE hard drives a day in the background while gaming and this was a great little tool to format drives before selling them. This adapter was just what I needed while it worked. I formatted somewhere around 25 older hard drives with capacities between 20-250GB over a couple months. I also used this adapter to burn a few CD's on older IDE CD/DVD drives and that worked fine as well. Yesterday I had a drive fail half way through formatting and I figured it was just the drive so I tossed in in the reject pile to take apart later for magnets and other fun bits. The next drive the same thing happened... and the next.... then I tried to burn another CD and iTunes would say there had been an error after a couple seconds. I tried a known good drive and a couple other PCs just to be sure. It's definitely dead. I would say I got my use out of it but I wish it would have lasted longer than a couple months. I'll look for a similar adapter of a different make.

Coboc PW-18515PR-10-BK  10ft 16AWG Outlet Saver Power Extension Cord (NEMA 5-15P to NEMA 5-15R), Black

Pros: -Good quality
-Cheap price

Cons: -Nothing to complain about

Other Thoughts: I find it difficult to think of much to say about cords and wires... it works, it shipped and got here fast, it feels to be of decent quality, the price is right. I'm running my tower, 3 27" monitors, and a set of Logitech Z5500 speakers on this cord. My whole desk pulls 1200 watts from the wall at full power and this cord is handling it fine. No complains from me

Pros: -Works just fine

Cons: -No complaints here

Other Thoughts: It's pretty hard to go wrong here. It's black, it's 15 feet long, it's.... oh yeah we're talking about the cord. No complaints from me. Very reasonable price and it does the job. Feels decently constructed.
