Pros: This adapter set for IDE and SATA to USB 2.0 is very useful in diagnosing old hard drives and then with a 3rd party tool then erasing said hard drives. It is pretty fast for what it is doing and is worth the money. Cons: The power adapter comes with a molex to sata adapter so you can power both styles of devices with the same style of power adapter. The problem with it was on my product multiple of the pins to connect the molex to sata adapter were loosely fitted so the pins would eject instead of inserting themselves into the power brick. Good news is a cheap and quick run down to the local computer store was able to fix this for under **. Other: Though the power adapter for Molex to Sata was flimsy the rest of the product is well worth it. it powered every device I put on it and allowed me to test a variety of both Sata and Molex Hard Drives and DVD/CD Drives.
I bought this to extract files from a few hard drives to my laptop after my PC melted down... Wasn't sure how it would work or it's quality because of it's low price... I have to say it's worked flawlessly! Very well made parts... Just plug it in and win7 picked it right up and installed the drives seemlesy. Very happy with this product and purchase
Everyone who uses any computer should have one of these available. If you check hard drives or external DVD/CD drives this is a must. Its simple plug and play. The USB cable connects to your working laptop or PC and the adapter has connections to connect to bare IDE drives or SATA Drives. It also has a power supply to power up the drives for reprogramming, formatting, or just searching for data. I have seen this same item on other computer sites for ***. This is a Super deal at a low price.
