Worked perfectly - managed to recover the old IDE disk 1/8/2020 4:29:30 PM

Pros: Easy to use, works.

Overall Review: I needed to recover files from an old IDE disk, and no longer had any old PC with IDE. This device worked perfectly and I was able to recover the files.

Works great, but... 9/27/2019 11:59:40 PM

Cons: I took off one egg because of the design of the older power connector. The connector has tabs on either side which wouldn't fit into a PATA drive with the adapter plugged in right next to it. I had to saw off the tab so both could be plugged in at the same time. After that it worked just fine. I'd suggest a future redesign where there is a raised tab on top instead like most power supplies I have,

Overall Review: Works fine, but might need a little surgery if you have a drive with a tight fit.

Great product! 8/6/2019 2:23:22 PM

Pros: Very good instructions

Cons: none

Overall Review: Came well packaged. Easy to read manual. Connected up beautifully to the older SATA hard drive. Drive was out of a dead computer of my Pastor's who needed files off the drive. Computer was toast but the drive wasn't. I got all the files off the drive for him. All is well. No problems at all!!

Have trouble believing what device is showing me 1/18/2019 2:55:24 PM

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.

Overall Review: 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 8/6/2018 7:00:09 PM

Pros: Not sure

Cons: Didn't work

Overall Review: 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 ... 3/7/2018 11:51:19 AM

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 1/8/2018 8:39:06 AM

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]

Overall Review: 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.
