    Very necessary thing. It works as expected, everything is ok. Cheap, reliable, simple to use. Can I try a CD-ROM, which is probably faulty :-) SATA IDE disk drives without problems. A little trouble with notebook drives ... Power supply will hopefully meet a performance, I assume permanent use in the repair PC ... Mains plug is not compatible, you must ... Read more

    It is pretty cheap. Built quality is ok. It works well with SATA drive. Unfortunately it doesn't work with all my IDE drive which are different brand. I bought this item especially for these IDE Hard drives. Power supply cable and its adaptor seems a little fragile. One should be aware and careful. Maybe there is somewhere I could download a new driver ... Read more

    - Pretty good price for a very useful device! - Small and compact - can work with desktop and laptop IDE and SATA drives - build quality could be a bit better...certain drives are VERY stubborn when I go to plug them in and I have to actually plug them in at JUST the right angle for it to work because the port on the IDE/SATA USB Adapter is a bit rough ...

    I liked the product very much. It does what it claims to do. Can connect to a wide variety of Hard Drives. - Laptop IDE - Sata and; - IDE I bought this one in order to recover my backup from old IDE drives I had lying around. Kind of messy with all those cables connecting from HD to adapter and to PC. It is the only con I can think of right now. This ... Read more

    It does what it claims. It is easy to use. You can use it on most sizes and types of internal hard drives. Even if your computer dies, you can still recover the data from the hard drive. Everything you need to use it is included in the package. Very handy to have if you like to DIY. I have successfully recovered data from a dead computer by pulling ... Read more

    Covers all std drives today. Plug and play on my W7 system. Instructions for loading drivers, which are only necessary on pre XP systems. No connection instructions. I am skeptical about the PS unit. It is speced at 42.5 Watts. Time will tell. I have no idea what the BACKUP button will do, but I am not interested in that function anyway. No instructions....

    Very cheap for what it offers. Can connect hardisks to USB plug. Muy barato para lo que ofrece. Puede conectar discos al puerto USB. It has not been possible to connect IDE hardisk because power for IDE hardisk is not posible directly from this machine. For SATA drives no problem because you can conect power and data cable. Me ha sido imposible conectar ... Read more

    - It works (even in Linux, and even with EXT2/3/4 formatted hard drives) - It's tiny - It's neat - It's useful - Power supply is huge - Power cable supplied is not compatible with EU plugs - Instructions unseless (what's the yellow cable for?) - No on/off switch It's a tiny little gadget that's very useful to test internal hard drives without opening ...
