  • Useful for techies only

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    Simple design. Does what it's supposed to. Rigid glass-epoxy board. Offers a more "direct" and potentially speedier connection than an external USB enclosure.

    Cons:

    For temporary use only--no hardware for permanent drive mounting inside a PC. You need to be VERY careful when inserting and removing this adapter from your drive; the fit is quite stiff and its very easy to bend pins and/or break the drive's logic board (which is THIN on a laptop drive).

    OtherThoughts:

    Pricier adapters include brackets to mount 2.5" drives inside a 3.5" drive space.

    Bottomline:

    A nice accessory for techies who need to transfer data between laptop drives and a desktop PC (via an IDE/PATA cable).
