Pros:
Support for IDE and SATA is a great feature. The cables and the adapter itself are very well built.I have used it on IDE hard drives ,on laptop hard drives 2.5'', and on sata hard drives it work great.I repaired over 20 hard drives with this and did not die on me.
Cons:
The USB cable is short needs to be longer. After you use it the ide socket loosens up a bit and it is very easy to jump out of the hard drive plug.Be careful it comes with chinese plug and you need to buy a cable with the right plug for your country.
Other:
could be cheaper;You could sell this with german type plug included at this price not to make me buy one extra if I want to use it!!
Bottomline:
It's a must have for every pc technician who wants to repair hard drives or copy data from a hard drive.
Buy one you will not regret it.
