    I received the order after 2 weeks, can't comlain, I guess. Product came as promise. Easy to use but unfortunately, the power adapter became really hot only seconds after plugging in and electrical burn occurred. Would not recommend this product to anybody.

    Power supply burned out two of my SATA drives. A different power supply works fine with the same cables. Buy this only if you want to overpay for the cables (or if you want to fry your hard drives).

    Works like a charm. This little device is worth its weight in gold for any IT person. But its 4pin>>Sata power cable is complete junk. Break off its 4 pin side casing and insert them in one by one. Out of 4 new sets of these all 4 4pin>>SATA power cables were junk, and my personal one arived completely falling apart, but beware because the pins are only held on by 2 tiny threads of metal, so it will not last, buy another one. This is what cost it 2 stars. But other than that it is great, but cost after buying a power cable and this currently makes it more expensive than its competitors.

    When a PC goes out you can still have DATA on the drives. With this you can recover that information.
