There are plenty of USB to IDE/SATA adapters available for less at their regular price.

If you don't need the antiquated IDE, USB to SATA adapters are even cheaper.

Also, the fact that this has USB 3.0 and doesn't source power directly from it seems like a bit of an oversight.

Agreed. Lots of USB>SATA adapters for $10 price range. I think this has separate power for powering multiple devices.
Also, some large 3.5" drives I've ran across won't even spin up with the weak power of USB. It requires that little extra amperage to spin up. Maybe that's why they went for external power. Guaranteed to have enough for any device.

this is a Modern Version of a very useful tool
for 1 it has USB 3.0 so when you come across a IDE drive it can Transfer FAST which is what you want to do with older drives
this can Transfer Drive to Drive that is VERY Useful
and the 2x IDE Laptop and Desktop With SATA is what i would look for in a device like this

Appreciate the info. Can you recommend one? I have a bunch of old IDE drives I need to pull their contents. Thanks!

If there are jumpers on your drives, did you change them?

e.g. two jumpered drives set as master may cause an issue.

Never seen a simple USB/SATA that would spin up a 3.5 drive (especially so an old IDE drive).

I have about a 10-15% success rate with the usb>sata adapter I have powering a 3.5".

5400RPM more so than others
