Great Buy

Pros: It arrived super fast. Plugged it in to an old hard drive to access the data, and it worked like a charm! I got to transfer all of it to my new, working computer.

Cons: It can be a little slow moving the data, but it's not a deal breaker.

Fully functional – A good value

Pros: Works for me as a SATA HD to USB. I store a lot of movies, music and technical information. This device lets me hot-swap all my hard drives without problem.

Cons: The adapter’s main physical support is the hard drive’s connector socket. So I use it on a 8x10” board with a cardboard shim under the adapter to prevent strain on the connector.

Good, easy tool to use, worked like a charm.

Pros: Cheap.
Fits all hard drives.
Does what it says it does.

Cons: Does not support USB 3.0.
The ports on the adapter do not protrude out enough.
Some hard drives you will have to take off the metal casing first to fit.
Newegg packages the item in a large inconvenient box.

Other Thoughts: Cheapest way to use older hard drives. I would definately recomend this item. Get a USB 3.0 adapter if speed is a priority.

Won't last

Pros: Was able to check 15 drives for recovering files.

Cons: Didn't last.

Other Thoughts: It began smoking on SATA power connection.

Melted solder connections on one laptop drive that was working fine until it was connected, now it's trashed after 13 seconds of being hooked up to this thing. Glad had my hand on it!

Unplugged power let it cool. Tried testing an 3.5 IDE, wouldn't spin up. USB still recognizes the device, but power supply has failed.

Shame though, really would like to have been able to recover some more of the data on those older drives.

Will try another brand.

USB IDE / SATA adaptor by Bytecc BT-300 two different units have not worked very well

Pros: The cost seemed reasonable
It sounded good in theory to be able to access files on a laptop harddrive that I had removed from a failed computer

Cons: The adapter did not work with my smaller (2.5 inch) harddrives from my two laptops. I returned it and they quickly sent out another, but it also failed. I could hear a faint clicking or rotation in the 2.5 " harddrive, but I could not access it on my other computer.... It did work with the larger 5.25" drive from another desktop computer....

Other Thoughts: I looked on the web for help, and found drivers I could download from the Bytecc website. But I found that the two drivers available were the same version and they only worked for Windows 98.... So, not very useful...
I would recommend others to purchase another brand, perhaps spend a little more.
