works good for me

Pros: - good price
-good reviews
-customer service is us based and knowledgeable, operator wasn't rude or in a hurry to get me off the phone, very nice

Cons: mini-ide plug could extend out a bit more for an easier fit

Other Thoughts: i bought this mainly to transfer files from an old laptop ide drive. worked great! laptop was smacked while on and the hard drive sustained damage and would not boot windows ME. was able to get personal files off without a problem.

works fine with ide and sata as well. great product for just occasional use.

Gets the job done!

Pros: Sturdy connections, everything included in the box that is needed for SATA and IDE connections.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I've had older versions of this and it worked fine but this more recent one seems to be better quality. The older one had a loose cabled on the power connector that I had to keep reattaching but this one seems like it will not have that problem. Have only used it for three IDE drives so far but all were recognized by the system (something the older one was a little hit and miss on) so I am impressed and hope it continues to perform like this for the other 10 or so IDEs I need to deal with. Buy with confidence.

Did not work

Pros: - Convenient
- Easy to use
- Comes with all needed adapters

Cons: - It didn't actually do anything
- Cheap Construction

Other Thoughts: I bought this hoping it would be a cheap solution to not being able to use my old IDE and SATA hard drives. The product powered up all of my hard drives correctly, but when I plugged the hard drives into the adapter and the computer, the computer would not recognize anything new in the device manager. I tried both IDE and SATA drives in 3 different PC's (Windows 10, 7 and XP) to no avail. I have submitted a return request. I recommend spending the extra money to get something more reliable.
