3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: cheap

Cons: I couldn't get it to work. I have some older IDE/ATA drives that I was hoping to read. I couldn't get this device to supply power to the drives. If I had a soldering iron, patience, and some skill, I suspect one could add power lines from this to power both the adapter and a drive at the same time, but I couldn't do it with the materials supplied. (There are no instructions with the device).

Other Thoughts: It was cheap enough that it doesn't really bother me. But if I was desperate to recover files from these old drives, I would be very annoyed.

  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: 1 worked fine

Cons: 1 was DOA

Other Thoughts: The one that was DOA showed up as a "4 GB" drive, when it didn't cause my computer to hard-crash. I couldn't format it.
