You can attach a 2.5 inch hard disk drive, a 2.5 inch SSD drive, a SATA or IDE 3.5 inch HDD or a 5.25 DVD or CD player/burner quickly and easily to your computer for testing. One of the most common problems with computers is that the hard disk drives fail or DVD or CD drives fail. With this very nice testing tool you can quickly help to solve the problem and troubleshoot the issue.
Installing a drive is fast and easy and only takes seconds to do. In my testing I installed a SSD drive rated at 3 GB/second and I connected the unit to a USB 3.0 port. I ran speed tests and I have included them in my video.
Inside of the box you will find:
* An AC power supply and the cable is 30 inches long
* A 48 inch long AC power cord.
* There is an USB 2.0 to IDE/SATA converter. It will connect to a 1.8 to 2.5 inch IDE drive or a 3.5 to a 5.25 IDE connector or a SATA connector. The USB cable is 27 inches long.
* An instruction manual
* A power converter cable to power a SATA HDD and the cable is 4 inches long.
* A SATA to SATA extender cable and the cable is 4 inches long.
* A two pin power converter cable 8 inches long.
The kit contains a very nice power supply that will power different styles of drives.Read more ›
1) Plug in the AC brick 4 pin molex into the drive.
2) Plug the IDE/SATA adapter into your drive.
3) Click the power on the AC adapter to ON
4) Plug the USB side of your IDE/SATA adapter into your computer.
Failure to provide power to the drive before plugging in the USB side results in the device never "seeing" the drive. If you do it right, you should see a white LED on the adapter "IDE/Busy"(shown in the picture as the top light on the adapter. The bottom light is blue and indicates USB power)
Even though this device works well if properly setup, it's only so-so for the IT professional. The sequence cannot be broken, requiring you to constantly unplug and plug the USB side.
Also, the adapter extends past the IDE connector. This make it unsuitable for IDE drives which place the IDE prongs next to the power connector(many have the master/slave/CS/Spare jumpers between the two, but many do not). If you are doing a project hooking up mismatched IDE drives, pick up a specialized interface that uses IDE ribbon cables to connect instead.
I wrecked the partition table of my primary work HDD. All in-situ attempts failed, so I brought the laptop home, mounted the HDD to my SATA cable kit, and ran the excellent TestDisk tool from Christophe Grenier. My partition table recovered, I wrote it to disk and bright the HDD back into the laptop. I'm back up and writing this from the work laptop now (don't say anything).
I would never look at this complex jumble of wires and adapters and think "well, I'll just hook it up and let it go for a few years". No, sorry, incorrect application, despite the instruction manual showing you how to do it. This is a stripped-down kit designed to travel with your rescue ops laptop when making a house call, like to Grandma's PC. I find it's easier to run virus scanning, defrag, etc when the HDD is controlled by my known-good laptop.
I withheld a fifth star because it's a complex mess of wires. I don't know how one could make it look elegant and preserve its functionality, but whoever can do it merits the fifth star. Wholly recommended product for rescue operations.
