Does what it says on the tin. – SATA to USB 2.0 Adapter with AC Supply Kit Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Works, allows you to hand bare drives off any halfway modern machine. Incredibly useful for data recovery. Pull drive out of machine, attach it to known environment with the appropriate repair tools, put sorted drive back. Best way to shift stubborn scumware out of Windows boxes is to pull the drive and fix them from another machine. This gadget makes this trivially easy.
Cons:
Well, it would be nice if it had a USB/Firewire interface but I can live with USB2 and the attendant CPU hit.
Other:
If you know why you might want one of these, buy it already. When you do data recovery you already ought to own at least one of these.
Bottomline:
Buy! Buy! Buy!
