  • Very useful, but not for permanent connection

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    +Can connect to any hard disk (IDE,2.5,3.5,SATS)
    +Works with USB, so don't need to open your computer.
    +Can be used as a repair kit for technicians
    +High Speed

    Cons:

    -I had to access control panel and run administrative tools. While it is ok with power users, simple users might not understand what and how to do it.
    -For some disks (I've tried 4), I had to do it each time I restarted. Which makes it unpractical for permanent connection.

    OtherThoughts:

    The power supply came with a flat plug, but in my country it is round. Not a big deal, since 220V was inside the voltage range for the unit, so only flat to round converter was needed.

    Bottomline:

    Very useful, helped me to recover data.
    Buy it if you need to recover data once in a while or so. But you will need other product if you want a permanent connection, probably a PCI card.
