A very good and cheap USb adapter
I bought this after an old laptop stop booting. I didn’t want to buy an enclosure and this adapter was the best choice after I opened the old laptop to extract the hard drive. It was very easy to work with this USB adapter since it gives you a lot of connection choices, virtually to are able to connect any ATA or SATA drive through it, after open the package it took me couple of minutes to hook up to my other computer and start to recover my data. I highly recommend this not only to recover data but if you have a hard disk around now you can use it without to buy an enclosure. One more thing, this adapter works with Windows and Macs.
The price was great and the shipping was fast.
My only problem was that the device didn’t come with instructions and I think that may have caused me to corrupt one of the harddrives by unplugging it before turning the computer off. I recommend finding some instructions online before using but the product was exactly as advertised and simple to connect.
Does exactly what I needed
I needed a way to connect a 2nd hard drive to a laptop that had operating system problems. This kit did the trick perfectly. I was able to format and load Windows on to a new hard drive and then connect my old hard drive to the USB port to copy my important files to the new one. Great product.
Great item altogether. The plastic interface to the drive seems to be a tiny bit warm to the touch. Hardly an issue.
I haven’t the need, but am curious if it would be able to handle all 3 interfaces to be used at the same time.
It has everything that is needed to get a drive running externally.
Dock? What dock? We don’t need no stinking dock.
