Pros:
Very cheap for what it offers. Can connect hardisks to USB plug.
Muy barato para lo que ofrece. Puede conectar discos al puerto USB.
Cons:
It has not been possible to connect IDE hardisk because power for IDE hardisk is not posible directly from this machine. For SATA drives no problem because you can conect power and data cable.
Me ha sido imposible conectar discos IDE directamente desde la máquina ésta porque le falta el cable de electricidad para el disco duro. Para discos SATA no hay problema porque ya viene un adaptador para conectar a discos SATA.
De hecho en la foto que alguien ha subido se aprecia un disco IDE y la alimentación del disco IDE es externa al aparato totalmente y no es por el cable de alimentación que trae el aparato.
Other:
Bottomline:
A very interesting machine to connect IDE/SATA drives to USB port. At least for testing purposes.
