This review is from: SYBA SY-U2SAIDE USB 2.0 to SATA/IDE Adapter with Power Adapter
Pros: Works great for IDE drives, and my 1st recovery was an IDE.
Cons: But SATA drives can't spin up and I believe it's because (I believe) the adapter lacks a 5v ground. Or possibly the power brick lacks the oomph?
Other Thoughts: After my recovery I was going to see what kind of throughput it would get on a new SATA drive, but I couldn't get it to work for SATA until I cracked my case and powered it off a spare power lead from my PCs power supply.
I'm Returning since SATA is going to be a growing need.
This review is from: VANTEC CB-SATAU3-6 NexStar SATA 6Gbps to USB 3.0 Adapter - 2.5"/3.5"/5.25"/SSDs
Pros: Looks good! Nice LEDs.
Cons: Only worked for ~ 30 seconds before powering off. Unplugged and re-plugged. It does the same thing.
Other Thoughts: Returned for a different brand.READ FULL REVIEW
