Rated 5 out of 5 by VanMichael Very Handy Gadget
Great for those times when you just need to take a hard drive from a laptop, desktop and hook it up to another computer to get at some files, because Windows will not come up after a virus strikes or whatever. I've also used it to connect CD/DVD player that was laying around to a Netbook with no CD/DVD player. Very, Very handy, many uses.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tiara99 Versatile IDE/SATA hard drive access
This is a very useful item for people who may have an old IDE type hard drive and/or a newer SATA type hard drive. It allows access to both types at the same time, too. It is very useful for people who want to transfer data from an older computer to a newer one.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Tascard Was able to retrieve everything off of the hard drive from a old computer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by KarenfromVT Tripp Lite USB 2.0 To SATA/IDE Combo Adapter
This product is a lifesaver for a computer that's motherboard has crashed. You can recover your data and then use it as external drive. My lower rating is because I had to connect FOUR different drives to it before wiggling the wires got it to work. My wiring seems to not be hooked in very well.
Rated 4 out of 5 by SotoInformationSystems USB adapter
This item is very handy when it comes to fixing other people's computers. I just bought it a couple of weeks ago and at first sight I thought that the 5.25 adapter was going to fail because there isn't much support but the copper pins. At least until today it has worked perfectly for me. The DC plug on the adapter is a bit thigt so you may need to pull hard to get it out. Other than that, for the value I would definetly recomend it.
