Worked for IDE drives but not SATA
About Me Enthusiast
Well, it is real simple... this device worked for IDE drives perfectly, but would not power up SATA drives. Apparently the power supply is not working.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Handy and simple to use

About Me Power User
This adapter comes in handy to recover data from a HDD in a dead PC. Simple to use. Comes with all necessary adapters for both IDE and SATA drives. Operates just like an External USB HDD. Not recommended as a permanent solution to be used as an External HDD.
