5 out of 5 eggsSo nice to use, and works with drives with no problems

Pros: Has nice speed and connection with drives, and I've tried over 6 with it. Works with SATA, both IDE types, and has little to no problems working through USB.

Cons: The speed might be a little slow at times, but it never was that much of an issue. I only used it to recover files from old drives though.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks flawlessly

Pros: -It has worked with every drive I have attached to it quickly, and without any issues.
-I have connected it to only a few 2.5" and 3.5" PATA drives, but many many SATA drives, and have had no errors or disconnects.
-The power supply included is fantastic. The SATA adapter seems better made than many, and the power switch is a fantastic feature.
-This is the first unit of it's type that I've ever had the luxury of a power switch, and it has become one of my favorite parts of the whole kit.

Cons: -USB cable could be a bit longer

Other Thoughts: -Will definitely purchase this again, if this one ever dies (not likely), or I end up needing another.

2 out of 5 eggsDoesn't come with SATA power adapter

Pros: None that I can tell so far.

Cons: It doesn't come with a SATA power adapter, but in my opinion the product is incomplete.

Other Thoughts: I can't test this without a SATA adapter, so now I'm stuck with having to place another order. This puts me a week behind schedule.

1 out of 5 eggsDoesn't work

Pros: None? Was cheap on sale

Cons: Doesn't work. I've tried this on several SATA drives on multiple machines. The disks spin but nothing ever shows up, USB is never detected.

2 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: Small, Easy, quick. Lets me use extra salvaged Hard Drives as external backup.

Cons: Didn't seem to be working first time I used it. No idea why...

Other Thoughts: Now it's 1/11/16 and yesterday I tried using it to look at a stack of IDE drives and only one out of about 10 drives worked. My old USB IDE thing works with all of them. So... this thing only works well with SATA drives. Pretty useless for IDE drives and that was the main reason I bought it.
