WHAT A USEFUL DEVICE FOR PC REPAIRERS OR BUILDERS

I have always constructed my PCs according to what my requirements are. Over the years I had accumulated a number of old drives that I could not bring myself to throw away. I also spend a fair bit of time removing or fitting hard disk drives to meet particular requirements. I receive 'Custom PC' monthly and last month's issue contained mention of a device that would enable access to data on older IDE HDDs through the USB3 ports on newer PCs (also handling newer SATA drives as well). This adapter from Startech has, at a stroke, removed much of the hassle and fiddle when trying to utilise data from an older HDD on a newer PC. Thank you Startech a long awaited tool for all PC builders and - dare I say 'Nerds'. Great bit of kit that will see a lot of use in the future.
