* It works! I have tested with PATA/SATA and 2.5" IDE.
* Very convenient if you replace harddrives of have to do troubleshooting.
* Comes with and adapter for SATA and PATA drives and the 2.5" drives takes power through USB.
* Very cheap
The main connector feels a bit flimsy. Each time I use it I'm afraid I will break it.
Lots of loose parts and cables. Hopefully I won't loose any... Could use a nice carying bag.
A brand new SATA drive would not innitialize through this connector. Once I had innitialized it on a PC and then reconnected it to the USB it worked. Looks like you still need a PC for a new disk.
It is very cheap and so convenient. I already used it on two occations last week and it saved me a lot of time.
