Great Product, did what I wanted it to do.

Pros: It reads the files
is compatible with 3 types of hard drives

Cons: USB 2.0

Overall Review: I ordered 2 of these to back up my hard drives that I suspected were going corrupt, about 2 weeks later both drives went corrupt. Good thing I have those adapters.

Works great for IDE, SATA is a no-go

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?

Overall Review: 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.

Pros: Cost is low and size is small enough to fit in service kit easily

Cons: Very unreliable. Purchased two units, both non-functional after 2-3 uses.

Overall Review: Better off to purchase an external drive case and swap drives in and out of one of those.

Where are the good SATA/IDE->USBs?

Pros: Worked like a charm while it lasted.

Cons: Died after about a dozen uses.
Power supply gets too hot to not worry about. Not for unattended use.
Made in China; poor solder work. Came with a brandless HS002-5-12 supply.

Overall Review: Where are the respected manufacturers? It seems like Newegg sells thousands of these across all the different brands, and they each have at least a few complaints of mass destruction!
I'd gladly pay 4 times the price if I could get one that didn't cause worry about the health of my drives and motherboard, and lasts at least a few years of intermittent use.
I have an excellent Thermaltake SATA dock, but we need IDE and laptop IDE too!

Disclaimer: I did not purchase this from Newegg.
