Pros
Easy to use. Connects to internal(IDE, SATA) drives, CD/DVD Burners to transfer data or burn CD's/DVD's. I transfered my valuable approximatively 50GB to another old IDE Hard Drive just to keep as back up copy if anything went wrong with new Portable Hard Drive.
Cons
Some times power failure. In my case this is not a problem because I am using Linux, USB 1.0, app. 370MB RAM, Pentius III(Coppermine) to write the data from one to another.
Pros:trasfer data, burn cds/dvds

I had an old Gateway IDE hard drive on my old pc.
I bought a new Alienware PC, ( i love it ) but when i got it, I could not copy my old files to the new pc because the new pc is a SATA.
I called BestBuy... they never heard of a IDE to SATA adapter. I called Radio Shack..same thing.
I went online to Dell, and entered a search for IDE to sata adapter...and, Viola! there it was.
I ordered it, and it showed up in a few days.
( i chose UPS ground )
it works great. It has all 3 adapters on it!
IDE 3.5 ( regular PC tower ) adapter
IDE 2.5 Laptop hard drive adapter
SATA adapter.
It simply plugs into an open USB port.
I am happy now. I got files from my laptop,and regular old tower, copied to my new Alienware pc.
great tech tool also!
I also burned some Archive DVD / CD's from this adapter.
Pros:file transfer, ide 2.5 to sata, ide 3.5 to sata, burn dvd / cd from this adapter, use adapter as an archiving tool
