    Pros:

    It is very little.

    I tried successfully with both 2.5 IDE and 3.5 SATA disks and with Windows XP and Windows Vista.

    Cons:

    It doesn't came with EU plug, but since it uses an standard computer's power supply 3 pin connector, you can use any other cable you have at home.

    OtherThoughts:

    It isn't an enclosure, so you must be careful with your devices since they are exposed.

    I haven't tried to have a HD plugged for long time, but I don't think it is a good idea.

    Bottomline:

    If you have lots of old hard disks (like I do), this is a nice and cheap way to recover data and re-use their space.
