works great

Pros

solid construction
simple use
can operate in -10 deg C
Cons
mine is now lost.
No real cons, this a is a great tool
Summary
I have used this to save 2 of my own hard drives, a few clients Hard drives and one for a friend.

It's an invaluable tool for drive recovery.
I got mine years ago from NCIX on sale for close to half price and it was a steal at < $20.
since loosing mine I have search around and the regular price is comparable to others. But I would buy this same one again.

Pros

Compact, functional
Cons
Shoddy manufacturing on adaptor for SATA
Summary
The product worked as advertised on IDE drives for six months but just now I have fried a 3.5 inch SATA drive because the supplied power adaptor was incorrectly wired to supply 12V to the 5V pin. Smoke and dead drive. Be wary of the power adaptor: check yours before using.

Pros

Works well, includes all needed cables etc.
Cons
Requires access to 110VAC outlet unless using computer internal power and the AC cable isn't very long so I needed an extension to reach a free outlet.
Summary
Worked perfectly when using a recovery program to access and restore data on a failed hard drive. Had no trouble with the built in power supply as others have so they may have improved this part of the equipment lately.

Pros

- Convenient
- Great concept
Cons
- Weak in power
Summary
It constantly turned on and off my drive, I am scared of using it now, I will have to get an external power for this thing. Meanwhile, I would rather get a docking station.

Pros

great concept
Cons
power supply was insufficient in my unit
Summary
During use there were a ton of drive errors and I could only write a few MBs until hard drive was off or disconnected. Thought it's the drive until I tried another drive and the same thing happened.
I found out now that the USB piece of the unit works which is the important part. But the power supply is doing something to the drives that makes them malfunction. When I use the PCs internal power to power the drives instead and use the USB piece of this product, everything works fine.
I guess the power supply of my unit has a weakness.

Pros

comes with power adapter and supports older hardware
Cons
bright blue LED on USB cable is a bit annoying
Summary
I used this on a older IDE DVD burner and I was able to burn a DVD without any problems so I would call this a success. Haven't tried any other of the formats it supports but if I can burn a DVD using this then I think it is a good value.

Pros

Work as expected
Good price
Cons
The Molex 4pins to SATA was defective
Bigger power supply than expected
Summary
I bought this to keep in my IT support backpack. I don't have much to say, except that it works as expected and speed are fine for USB2.0.

I expected a bit more quality coming from Vantec. The 4pins Molex power to SATA power was defective, so I had to ship everything back to NCIX and wait for a return. The power cable that plugs into the power supply does not sit in properly. It seems that the ground pin is longer than the +/-, so the power cable does not fit properly. It's no big deal, since it usually is temporary when using the device.

The power supply is a bit bigger than expected, but it's fine.

Overall, I am satisfied. But I would look at alternatives before buying again.

Pros

Very good build quality
No drivers required
PSU is useful for testing lights and other case modding accessories
Cons
Takes up a lot of space on desk
Can't be used without power brick
Summary
Awesome product. I have been looking for something that can do desktop and mobile IDE as well as SATA. It is also nice that it supports IDE CD and DVD drives.

The only downside is that using it for SATA devices requires a lot of extra cabling as it can't be used without the power brick. The cables required are: AC power to brick, Molex out of brick, Molex to SATA power, SATA cable from HD to adapter, USB cable from adapter to computer.

On the plus side the separate power adapter means you can use it to test other components such as lighting, water pumps, fans, and anything else that takes a Molex power connector. The power adapter has an on/off switch and is quite powerful with a 1.5A 12V rail and a 1.5A 5V rail.

Overall a very useful product and a must have for anyone who pulls desktops or laptops apart on a regular basis.

Pros

Inexpensive, versatile
Cons
Lots of cables, but that's not really a weakness because they represent the adaptability of this device.
Summary
It works!

This thing is more of a contraption than a device because of all the cables: molex->sata, sata data, 120V plug, adapter unit, USB, etc etc etc.

But it is the handiest contraption because I no longer have to open my case up and fiddle with power & data connectors to mount a hard drive. I often examine/repair other people's hard drives (both IDE and SATA), and occasionally swap around hard drives between my two PCs. Now ... just plug everything in, and no problems.

I've heard of problems with other manufacturer's SATA->USB enclosures, but that Vantec always works. 5 stars, excellent "techie" product.

Pros

-Supports all common drive types
-Own power supply for connected drives
-Can be used completely externally
-Inexpensive
Cons
-None
Summary
This device is absolutely necessary if you want to backup or recover data on a drive. It eliminates the need to open your case and even the need to restart your computer. The drive is also powered by its own power supply, compatible with both the standard 4-pin and SATA power cables. The device is completely plug and play with modern operating systems which makes connectivity very convenient. The transfer rate is also very impressive for a USB adapter. The price is also outstanding for the convenience this product gives you and the fact that it includes an independent power supply as well.
