Works well. Tried it on several old drives both IDE and SATA. The power switch on the adapter lets you turn off the power to the drive without having to unplug from outlet allowing you to switch drives quickly
I used the adapter to recover files from an old 3.5 IDE disk. It did the job as expected. This is the perfect solution to transfer data from a "dead" machine HDD or just to "browse" that old drive laying around somewhere. Optical drive should be supported, I did not test this feature.
Got the job done, I was able to pull my files off the drive; but the power adapter didn't fit. I ended up having to dig out an old tower to power the drive. So works just fine if you have old hardware lying around; but not so useful if you need something portable.

For a hard drive, you have to format it. Computer management-disk management, then allocate the disk. The cable works really smoothly! Paul is big help! A really cheerful guy! Highly recommend!
Picked this up because I have many hard drives of different types, and no enclosure supports them all, it's also easier than having to pull a case apart every time you want to swap drives. Only criticisim is that the drive will spin all the time, as the power supply is not controlled by anything, not a problem if you only have it connected when you expect to use it.
This cable is really much more useful than a drive enclosure for those who want to read a set of HDs in a collection but not reading for very long periods of time. It does not require any software set-up. Connection is fast and there is no worry about over-heating.
