Consistently performs

We use this in our IT dept as we have many legacy laptops and PC's with various HDD connections. This product has always worked provided the drive is actually working mechanically. I've never actually been compelled to write a review before but this adapter is great. We have 2 of them now and will no doubt try the USB 3.0 one at some point.
