-Passes the SMART data
-Includes all the needed cables
-Has both 3.5 and 2.5 IDE cables
-Approx 40MB/s real transfer speed -Not usable as a USB 3.0 to SATA/IDE converter. Have tried several computers with USB 3.0. Symptoms vary from: cannot see the drive and hangs to woks fine for few seconds then disconnects/resets the connection. On ... Read more
Was able to attain a stable read speed of 100 Mb/s with SATA HDD (with large files) when connected via USB 3.0. No problems with drivers (at least in Windows 7 x64). The SATA/PATA to USB adapter as such looks rather flimsy. The power unit (which is supplied as a separate device) is quite bulky and it has ordinary Molex connectors with 5V and 12V out,... Read more

The adapter does not provide power to the SATA drive (don't know about the PATA port), so you'll need the power brick even for low-power laptop drives. When my 3.5" drive is not spinning,...

But with USB3 I got 60MB/s, which isn't too bad compared to the 70MB/s I get when the drive is connected directly via SATA. The better part is that, contrary to the previous adapters I used, this one happily lets me use smartctl and hdparm,... Read more
