    PROS: The product works really well; Super fast
    CONS: None specified
    Short story ...shorter. Old, very old computer, grew tired of fixing it, bought a new one with SATA drives, old one had IDE, needed data from old drives. Saw this gizmo on line, well its cheap enough but does it work. It arrived, open the box read the short instructions, plugged it in ... bam .. it worked, got data from old drives .. right now. I'm pleased, very pleased. You just can't ask for more than that.
  • Very handy item to have.

    PROS: Simple, simple, simple
    CONS: Unillistrated instructions
    Watched a couple videos on UTube while waiting for delivery (winter storms), so already had an idea how it should work. Allowed me to transfer data from a quite old desk-top and a recently expired laptop onto my new laptop. Then did the same for my daughters old to new laptop. Data transfer, though only USB2.0, was quite fast. A USB3.0 cable would be fantastic! This is a tool I think everyone should have. Wow! Wish I had one of these years ago! It's worth every penny (and free UTube how-to!).
  • Great problems whatsoever.

    I've replaced several HHDs where the OS wasn't stable enough to retrieve data. This solution allows me to attach the HDD to a stable OS environment for data retrieval.

Q: What kind of cable do I need for my printer?

A: Typically, printers today are connected with a USB A Male to B Male cable

Q: What if I need to extend my current USB cable past the 16 foot distance limit?

A: Because passive USB cables have a distance limitation you would need an active extension cable to help boost the signal coming from the source.

Q: I'm unsure what USB cable I need, can you help?

A: Please click on the resource tab to see the USB connector graph. This should help identify the correct cable.
