It is very little.
I tried successfully with both 2.5 IDE and 3.5 SATA disks and with Windows XP and Windows Vista.
It doesn't came with EU plug, but since it uses an standard computer's power supply 3 pin connector, you can use any other cable you have at home.
It isn't an enclosure, so you must be careful with your devices since they are exposed.
I haven't tried to have a HD plugged for long time, but I don't think it is a good idea.
If you have lots of old hard disks (like I do), this is a nice and cheap way to recover data and re-use their space.
