5.0 out of 5 stars Endless possibilities with this new type of tool., 25 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First use took a strip off the bottom of a fitted skirting board with the vinyl still in place, thickness of the vinyl, now the vinyl is under the skirting board rather than against it with a hump of vinyl in front of it. Important experience is the cutters will damage the surface of the vinyl so a sheet of something is required between the cutter and the vinyl to protect the vinyl, if cutting with the vinyl in place. Can see endless possibilities for this new type of tool. Especially with the multitude of cutters available.

5.0 out of 5 stars For Intel SSD, 10 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought for an Intel 2.5" SATA SSD Drive. Has good fitting slot for the Drive. As the SSD Drive is light and with the short USB 3.0 cable provided may move a little when plugged in and sitting on a vibrating PC housing. Should cope with various external impacts and be sacrificial to protect the higher valued Drive. SATA plug is held securely in the enclosure. Blue LED to indicate use. Good unit. No heat build up as only used with cool running SSD Drive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bought to Access The Hard Drive from a WD Elements External Desktop Drive Package, 10 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This Docking Station was purchased to try to access a SATA WD Caviar Green 500GB drive from an Elements external enclosure which I could no longer access as a component on the USB Adaptor Card, which is part of the Elements assembly, had burnt out. This was most apparent after the enclosure was opened. Data was not lost or corrupted, was just inaccessible due to USB Adaptor Card failure. Easy to remove the USB Adaptor Card from the Drive casing by removing 2 screws and unplugging from each other.
This Docking Station is manufactured from good feeling quality material and comes with power adaptor and USB 3.0 plug B to plug A short cable. Station is not Hot Swapping so the power switch on the rear of the unit should be used when changing Drives. Connector is held firm within the Station for good plugging and unplugging of the drives. Blue LED give indication of when in use. Has also been used with a longer USB 2.0 plug B to plug A cable as PC is USB 2.0. Full access to Caviar Green and other 3" Drives with both USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 cables.
Have not tried Station with any 2.5" SATA Drives but cannot see any reason why could not be used with this size of drive, there are no restrictions in the Station drive access slot. Unit has rubber pads for secure sitting on flat surface.
Great unit that has saved me hundreds of pounds that I would otherwise have had to spend with a Data Recovery operation to transfer data from the inaccessible drive to another drive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Drive and Kits, 10 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product is the Desktop PC Kit, there are 2 other kits available from Intel, the Basic Kit which only has the SSD drive and the Laptop Kit which has all the parts that the PC Kit has plus additional cables to provide for migration from a Laptop Hard Drive. If this SSD drive is going to be used in an external drive enclosure the drive will have to be formatted and allocated a Drive Letter using Disk Manager and associated Installation Wizard before it can be used externally. EHow Tech has good instructions on how to complete this task for MS Windows XP. Believe all the SSD drives from Intel are available in the different kits. Intel provide videos on their site to help with drive kit selection. Other buyers have mentioned the Formatting requirement in their Feedback. Drive is really fast as expected and is only just warm after extended use fitted into a Inateck USB 3.0 external enclosure. Hoping for failure free many years of use.

Fits the charger socket and looks like it was provided with the charger, as it should as it is an OEM item. Has been used constantly since bought.
