    VER handy

    posted by Stephen76 on 01/04/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I bought this to house an external drive, but ended up using the cables from the housing to repair other computers, and do data backups before repairs. The cables in this are very handy, and you get both an IDE connection, and a SATA connection, so you can...

    Pros:
    The product is simple enough so you don't have problems to assemble it. And it is strong and good looking after you put it all together with your Hard Drive on it. It is perfect for me because it supports IDE/PATA or SATA Hard drives. After you connect to t...
    Cons:
    I think the power cable could be smaller. And the USB cable larger. Other than that I don't see nothing wrong with it.
