Have trouble believing what device is showing me

Pros: Very easy to use....seems to work well, minimal connection time w almost no need for instruction

Cons: As I believe already listed, the connections are place too close together and its difficult to fit power and IDE at the same time.
I went through about 20 hard drives, and 2 of them showed me data...all the others just showed me an I: Drive (hardware...yes I have 6 drives) that was inaccessible....I have trouble believing that 18 were bad.

Other Thoughts: Not sure....ill have to hook up the "bad" drives to test them and confirm which defeats the point of having it in the 1st place.

Garbage

Pros: Not sure

Cons: Didn't work

Other Thoughts: It never worked. I bought this years ago off newegg and recently tried to use it again, still doesn't work. In fact, it messed up my HDD. Be careful. I'm sure I just got a defective one, but it's far too late for a return lol.

Seldom used but when you need one ...

Pros: This is a device that I haven't used often (perhaps 1-2 times per year), especially when I am working on older IDE based computers that still have a useful life. The last time I used it was in December 2017 when I was transferring the OS from an XP based hard drive built 8 years ago onto a SATA SSD.

Cons: None

Very handy item to own

Pros: Works with PATA, SATA hard drives and floppy drives. Great for testing bare hard drives on almost any computer. Eliminates the need to either open up the computer to install the drive internally or install the drive into an enclosure.

Cons: Poor quality power cable [cable from wall outlet to the power supply]

Other Thoughts: When I first purchased this, I thought that the contacts in the "inline" power switch were flaky. Two years down the road, the unit would not power up at all. Turns out the issue was a poor quality power cable. Replaced the cable with a known good unit. The adapter is now stone cold reliable. So if you have one of these and the green LED lamp on the power switch flickers or acts weird, try replacing the power cable. Over all, I'm very happy with this unit. Well worth the money [$12 on sale] I spent on it. I deducted 1 star because of the bad power cable. 4 years of ownership and the power supply has failed. This unit was lightly used over that time, no more than 25 uses. I deducted a second star for this. FYI, I recently purchased Vantec's USB 3 version of this adapter. It uses a different [and better] power supply. The power supply from the USB 3 version will also work with this older USB 2 unit.

did the job

Pros: worked well, supplied power to to 2.5 IDE through the interface, vs having to have an extra external power connect, (very good)

Cons: The case,/shell for the drive interface, separated almost right away . . . while using it to access an IDE 2.5 drive . . . didn't want to mess with it while drive was backing up . . no easy way to "duct tape" because of the way the drive interfaces are situated, and superglue could be an issue (have not tried) as "super glue" could easily "melt" the wire insulation.

Awesome product definitely worth its weight in not only price but ease of use as well! However it does have one problem

Pros: -absolutely essential for pulling data off of not only older hard drives but also good for copying data from them said drives to older computers as well!

Cons: -just one con and it is the reason I took an egg off worth and that is be careful when installing this as you could accidentally plug in the power cord to the power adapter the wrong way and end up shorting out all of your attached hard drive devices.

Other Thoughts: I would highly recommend this device to others it is worth its weight in gold and then some.
Just be careful hooking it up as indeed the power cord can be reversed in the plug port which can and will short out any attached hard drives. (I have not done this myself but others have reported this happening)

Works well thus far -still working 10/18/2017

Pros: Quick and painless. No drivers requierd for me (xp home sp2, vista 32bit (newist up-date) and win 7 32bit from 2010 (not up-dated)

Cons: Junk wall plug to AC unit, not a problem for me as i have about 6 other plugs to use.

10/18/2017. The switch on the brick to hdd is junk and cuts out if you bump it. Over all, still works well enough besides.

Other Thoughts: short sata data plug but not a bother as it does work. lots of reviews said it was a fail unit or dies after a few useis, ive had a bit of workin with it thus far and no problems yet but with a old ide lap top HDD (could not read it) and ps 3 80 HDD (could not read it). I have used 2 sata lap top drives and 1 phat ide drive so far and they worked well for me, i could even play full games from them.

Remember to read the info slip that is in the box to know how to operate this item!!!!!

Will repost in a year or when it dies for en up-date.

08/30/2011 to 10/18/2017. Only the switch is giving me issues now, still not much of an issue for me.
