SATA/IDE Hard Drive 2.5" 3.5" 5.25" HDD and Optical Drive USB Adapter

Product Review (submitted on May 16, 2010):

I found its great for doing a quick check on external HD's to see if another connection would work. After having my Mac's for 10 years now with no problems with the drives other then normal end of life use, all of a sudden the last couple of years i've had half a dozen CD/DVD and HD's die on me prematurely, internal and externals. A couple of external HD's I thought were going out just happened to be the power supply's instead. The usual check is to hook the drives up to another computer or another external housing to check to see if it works or not. This saves a huge amount of time. It's great if you don't have an extra enclosure around and you need to access and old drive.
