5 out of 5 eggs Working great since 2009! 01/02/2014

This review is from: Rosewill RCW-618 USB to IDE / SATA Adapter - Supports Windows 7

Pros: Pretty self-explanatory on how to hook it up
Small box which is pretty portable for house calls, etc.
Not much to break

Cons: On old IDE drives you can really bend the pins easily with this, so you have to be steady and slow to win the race!

Other Thoughts: The best method I have found to hook a Hard Drive to this is:
1. Connect the power connector to the drive.
2. Connect the data connector to the drive, but NOT the USB cable.
3. Turn on the power(switch)
4. Connect USB from drive then to the PC.

If the computer does not detect a drive after about 10 seconds, the drive is most likely dead.
