    Works flawlessly

    posted by JSC00 on 09/14/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Easy to use, with notebook hard-drives just "plug and play". I use this to wipe clean old or broken notebook hard drives. Works also with devices like TV or PVR. I can plug old hd to TV via this adapter and record from TV to hd.
    Cons:
    None found yet. I have not tried this with 3,5" desktop pc hard drives yet.
