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

Pros:
Handy adapter for hard drives. If we consider that optical discs will soon not be needed too often, it is very cost-effective solution that does not use bulky USB adapters.
Cons:
difficult to get out of the laptop, after installation, but it does not affect all models, and for that price you should not dwell on this. Not all laptops can boot from a disk installed on this adapter. There are solutions that can be prescribed in the loader on the primary drive link to the second drive in the adapter. it is less negative, and especially laptops. IMHO
Other:
Place the solid-state drive in the main connector, and an adapter disk for data storage. issues and problems with the adapter is not detected. tested on a laptop acer aspire 5750.
Bottomline:
A good solution if you want to put a SSD in your laptop as second disk
