5 reviews for USB to SATA or IDE HDD and Optical Drive Adapter

  1. Boo Boo

    Perfect exactly what I was looking for.

  2. Grady

    I bought a Hard Drive USB adapter earlier, but I had one old hard drive that didn’t fit. This product worked great. I was able to recover documents from an old computer with ease.

  3. Steve

    I needed a USB device to interface with old IDE HDDs for a data recovery application. This device did the trick. It works as described so far and I’m happy with it to this point.

  4. William Talkington Jr

    This device works as advertised. The price was right. The instructions were very easy to follow. And, it got a very specific job done. I was able to rescue files and photos that my friend thought were lost forever, all because I had the right tool for the job.

  5. Guest

    Not a problem From start to finish – I hate spending money on something I’m only going to use once for 15 minutes before it starts collecting dust. Maybe somebody should rent out such adapters rather than people having to purchase them. They are not really cost effective.
