-great for accessing drives without having to install into pc
-power switch on the adapter allows for quick drive swaps
-difficult to attach more than 1 drive at a time
Works well. Tried it on several old drives both IDE and SATA. The power switch on the adapter lets you turn off the power to the drive without having to unplug from outlet allowing you to switch drives quickly

Experience: 1 Months
Plug and play
Lots of wires
This adapter works well with every hard drive and dvd drive I've used it with. The power adapter is a bit short and can be awkward to use if your computer isn't near an outlet, same for the usb cable.

After using it with an old 3.5in IDE disk drive a few times one of the pins broke off into the adapter; This could have been my fault but I'm not convinced.

I'm still going to use it with 2.5in IDE and sata drives.

Simple to use. Perfect if you want to plug in hard drive temporarily.
Hard drive will keep spinning until its unplugged.
Plug it in and worked right away with no need to restart.

It worked on old wd 15GB ide hdd, sata drives and old samsung ide dvd burner.
Black connecters (difficult for me to see, ppl with 20/20 should be fine, flimsy connection into adapter head.
I tested it on a laptop, I didn't use the psu in the box I went straight to an old 350w ATA psu glad I didn't through them out.

For $14 it's a handy little gadget to have, HDDs do spin at full speed so it's a quick temperary tool not intended for extended use, I don't trust the supplied psu use an ata or jump and old atx psu.

Experience: 1 Days

Works as expected. Bundled with all the cables you need to connect IDE and SATA devices.
Cables get a bit messy on your desk, this is however expected of such a temporary setup.
I used the adapter to recover files from an old 3.5 IDE disk. It did the job as expected. This is the perfect solution to transfer data from a "dead" machine HDD or just to "browse" that old drive laying around somewhere. Optical drive should be supported, I did not test this feature.

Fast and easy setup, it plain works !

- easy set up
- inexpensive
- The drive power cable that came with the adapter did not fit the drive
Got the job done, I was able to pull my files off the drive; but the power adapter didn't fit. I ended up having to dig out an old tower to power the drive. So works just fine if you have old hardware lying around; but not so useful if you need something portable.
