I purchased this because my wife's pc crashed and was replaced. Her new machine does not have IDE interfaces so I needed a way to read her data from her old hard disk. This enclosure was easy to use. It is well built and solved ny problem easily. A week later my computer's OS was corrupted. I was time constrained and so I removed the hard disk and took advantage of this device again. This time it was a SATA drive. I was able torecover my files easily and have them backed up so that when I recover my OS, my documents will be retained. In the past I would have had to open up another PC and install the drive to be recovered. Now this can be done with much less effort. This device has turned out to be a very useful tool. It has already paid for itself in recovering what otherwise would have been lost time and resources. The ability to work with both the older IDE (ATA) drives and the newer SATA drives makes this very useful. This device will live in my toolbox until I need it...
This enclosure is extremely helpful for anyone who has had a hard drive fail on them and they'd like to find out what can be rescued by mounting the drive on another machine. I had an old IDE drive that I wanted to rescue but it was quite an added bonus that this would also read SATA drives, which I ended up needing to do soon after as well. The product is not exactly polished, but for the price that's not a big deal and this is clearly aimed for somewhat sophisticated users. The only reason this isn't getting five stars is that there is a warning saying that it should not be used long term as it may over heat. I'm not sure if this is actually the case, but I didn't want to try it. Would have been great if I could have reused this as an easy way to have an extra drive of external storage always mounted.
I hypothesize USB power versus actual wall power cord. If you do not have enough power, it won't be as fast, or may not work at all. You could try something like 5V D-Link DGS-1008D Switch replacement power supply adapt premium, but I do not know. You would have to find the right power kit. I like the idea of an on off switch. I can verify this product works. Do not expect much with raid 0 of two drives on 1 USB 3.0 cable. There is a chance you could hit the 5Gbps limit. It could get jammed. I could not get it to initialize when plugged data cable to USB 3.0. I had to plug both lines into USB 2.0 ports. It was able to load then. After the disk was created, I was able to plug the the data cable to USB 3.0. The toggle board indicator is the black spots in the user manual. I bought two 5400 Hybrids. The each are 500 GB. Crystal Disk Mark says up to 200.5 Seq MB/s Read and slow 15.52 Write. I cannot use them. I found a spare SSD and HDD to use, by changing the Hybrids into where they...
