Rated 5 out of 5 by from This thing was a life saver. Worked flawlessly when I needed to clone my ailing laptop C drive. Recommended to anybody that needs to temporarily connect a SATA drive to a computer.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not compliant with SATA 3 Works fine with SATA or SATA 2 drives but refuses to even look at a SATA 3 drive - not a lot of use if you have up to date drives. I needed to reformat a previously used 1Tb drive after replacing it with an SSD - No go, I had to use an old EIDE/USB device with an EIDE to SATA converter attached. what a shame as the device is very neat and compact.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Despatched day after order and arrived next day. Does what it says on the box - gave me easy access to all docs and files even though windows itself would not run from the disc. Let me recover daughter's college work before trying to get the disc sorted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A simple and excellent device. Worked flawlessly with my Macbook, allowing me to boot from my old HDD as though it was still installed in the machine - albeit a little slower.
