    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    * It works! I have tested with PATA/SATA and 2.5" IDE.

    * Very convenient if you replace harddrives of have to do troubleshooting.

    * Comes with and adapter for SATA and PATA drives and the 2.5" drives takes power through USB.

    * Very cheap

    Cons:

    The main connector feels a bit flimsy. Each time I use it I'm afraid I will break it.

    Lots of loose parts and cables. Hopefully I won't loose any... Could use a nice carying bag.

    A brand new SATA drive would not innitialize through this connector. Once I had innitialized it on a PC and then reconnected it to the USB it worked. Looks like you still need a PC for a new disk.

    Bottomline:

    It is very cheap and so convenient. I already used it on two occations last week and it saved me a lot of time.
