1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: Multiple connections for various hard drives.

Cons: Never functioned correctly. Seemed to lack the power to power an IDE hard drive. Replaced with a Startech unit that worked perfectly.

Other Thoughts: Product should be considered basic. It offers multiple connections, but really requires an ample amount of desk space to allow for the power/usb cords.

1 out of 5 eggsSome like it HOT

Pros: Works great with 2.5 ide and sata hdd's.

Works great with 3.5 ide hdd's.

Cons: WILL BURN A 3.5 SATA HDD UP!!! THE DRIVE WILL NOT WORK AFTER THIS HAPPENS.

Other Thoughts: I think maybe it's giving too little or too much electricity via the sata connector bc it definitely will cook a 3.5 sata drive a lot of the time. Better to just connect a drive of that type to an internal connection; better safe than sorry with no data :(

Update: after frying one too many 3.5 hdd's with this guy, I have changed my review to one egg. This type of data destroying device should have never left the factory. I'm sorry if you buy this and have this happen to you.

Shame on you Bytecc. You guys should have recalled these or at least stop selling them. I'll never buy another of your products and I'll make sure this is as well known about as possible.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat tool for Techie Toolbelt

Pros: Ease of use. This is a great tool that I have used at least a dozen time in the first day I opened the box. Love the easy use from IDE or SATA connection to USB.

Cons: The power plug is a little hassle with plugging into the main box. Main box when plugged into a hardrive gets a little stress. Needs to be design to lay flat on hard surface.

1 out of 5 eggsDidn't work outta box

Pros: If it worked it would save me a ton of time.

Cons: Hasn't ever worked on a single drive. Claims to be USB 2.0 compliant but has drivers for Windows 98, which came out two years before USB 2.0 even existed.

Other Thoughts: Was so cheap wasn't even worth wasting my time returning. If it had worked it would've been an amazing tool.

1 out of 5 eggsnot worth buying

Pros: Worked great for awhile. Fast usb 2.0 speeds.. Recognized all drives I attached to it..

Cons: Lasted around 2 months before not being able to recognize and hard drives attached to it.. Finally quit and smelled like something shorted out in it..It failed when I needed it the most, tying to back up a hard drive's information to put on a new computer.

Other Thoughts: Very disappoinged int this .. I had another one I had for close t 2 years before it quit.. Do not buy it.

1 out of 5 eggsDoes not work out of box

Pros: None. I ordered this because I borrowed a similar one from my friend and it worked nicely, so I want one for myself. But it did not even work, I had to buy one from a local store.
On top of that, I could not find any sign of BYTECC!

Cons: It tried to spin the disk, but nothing happened.

1 out of 5 eggsMAJOR GARBAGE!

Pros: Arrived swiftly thanks to Newegg!

Cons: Never worked from day1. First tried to use item 5 months after purchase. I purchased this as a backup for a 4 year old Sabrent unit. On fist attempt to use it RUINED A DRIVE! drive is no longer functional.CONTACTED CUSTOMER SUPPORT AND GOT NO REPLY! Stay away from their garbage as they have no responsive customer support or quality control!

Other Thoughts: Your actual experience on the item you purchase may be different but I doubt it as they are non responsive to customers and requests for RMA and they have a high failure rate on their products (see all negative reviews in percentages) so you can fairly much read it as NO QUALITY CONTROL.

1 out of 5 eggsi'll tell lyou right now

Pros: once yoiu get an extender cable i'm sure it is ok., but NOT ready to use out of box.

price

nice power supply

Cons: unusable on hp common notebooks

you need to spend extra for something that should have been included.

sloppy research on notebook hd confuguration by this manuf.

Other Thoughts: this makes my second of these devices. the first one is good, no probloem. i will tell you the problme right now with this thing.

forget about plugging it into a hp 8460 hard drive. the mounting screws on the hard drive make this device's interface imcompatbles, because the mounting screws extend one on either side and this device is solid molded, so you need a f/m 7 pin and also a f/m 15 pin sata extender cable for data and power, respectively. Granted, these are only about three bucks a pop calbes, but they SHOULD have been included, especially for the common, corporate, hp laptop. would NOT buy it again.
