    Works perfectly

    posted by sanyix on 10/15/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    It works, better than i expected. Such devices are at least 5x more expensive elsewhere, and of course only capable of using SATA OR IDE drives for both it's even more expensive. But this is cheap and knows both connectors, and the power adapter is cabable ...
    Cons:
    UK power cord, however you can simply attach other power cords too(EU), the usb adapter case is not the best. I need to plug it...

    posted by EchiDnaSG on 07/26/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Value for money Everything required for all drive types in the one box Great to get all the old drive contents off a disc and on a current format
    Cons:
    configuring IDE drives not so simple, takes time and effort playing with jumpers. Slow delivery time to Singapore (over 3 weeks...

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

    Pros:
    Very useful tool, cheap price, good packaging. Power connectors look very sturdy and durable,as well as the power adapter.
    Cons:
    Maybe quality of plastic on data connector, but that is just being picky. I do wish sometimes that power cord is just a little ...

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

    Pros:
    - Cheap - Easy to figure out without being a nuclear scientist - Though not stated, works with Linux also (the hardware part, not the included software!)
    Cons:
    - Adapter "looks" flimsy build - It could use more "travel proof" packaging - It came with a non-European p...

    Pros:
    It's a great product and it just does the job no problems with compatibility it worked on windows xp, vista and windows 7. I was looking for a product like this one but it was very expensive so i gave this one a try and i think it was worth it. Some of my f...

    Very good product

    posted by matito24 on 04/30/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    It is the best to connect any disk: sata, ide 3.5" or ide 2.5" hard drives by USB 2.0. The speeds are ok. I use it all the time with an ide 3.5" 120GB hard drive, and works really good. The power supply do his work fine; you shouldn´t us...
    Cons:
    Te cable of the power supply is cheap and the conductors have little section; I recommend to change it for other better or bigg...

    Piece of Cake to Use

    posted by faieGade on 03/15/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Pretty awesome product. Plastic body, and works just fine for the price. I was stoked to find out that DX sold these since I can't find any in my city. Easy operation, and doesn't over-heat like everyone else said it does. I've had this Product since Octo...
    Cons:
    Takes a little time to start up, but after that it's smooth sailing. So really Nothing wrong with it :)

    Does exactly what I needed.

    posted by s1ns3nt on 02/16/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Very happy with it, it's picked up every drive i've thrown at it so far(IDE and SATA). Transfer speeds are reasonable, not as good as having it in the case, but that's implied by the formfactor. Easy to carry around, compared to an actual external case....
    Cons:
    At worst, maybe the quality of the plastics? I wouldn't want to drop it from too high.
