5.0 out of 5 stars Access to rear mounted USB 3.0 sockets made easy, 19 Jun. 2016

Everything as one hopes it to be. They are cables and they work, it would have been nice to have had a choice of colours.

5.0 out of 5 stars Never be short of USB 3.0 sockets., 19 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Everything as one hopes it to be. Initially didn't work because power cable plug wasn't pushed home far enough although I thought it was as far it would go: it's a tight fit. I expected 5 USB sockets so having the 2 extra inboard ones to feed a case front mounted panel is a useful bonus. Using the installation software I was slightly confused by the lack of explanation that to install the Driver it's necessary to click on the button describing the specific card by it's colour (green or red), not on the button 'Driver'. However one soon learns from one's errors.

4.0 out of 5 stars Value engineered product of elegant design, 19 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Everything as one hopes it to be. This design has been around for many years under different brand names. I bought a black one for an IDE drive several years ago 'Lupo' branded for £4.99. Based on that experience I bought two more cases of this generic design a week ago. Whilst very suitable for my needs this design is not likely to withstand rough treatment that might cause it to pop open. I think the design is unsuitable for frequent opening up to swap drives. The drive is powered from a common USB 2.0 or 3.0 data/power cable. It's useful having a choice of colours to differentiate drives.

The case comprises two thin aluminium sheet pressings fitting tightly together and secured by two dimples in the pressing that forms the top cover, in the end opposite to the power/data socket. The previous 'Lupo' case does not have these dimples but nonetheless has not unintentionally come apart. An LED indicates that power is connected and this flashes when data is read. An inconvenience is the location of the LED next to the power socket thus it's visibility can be impaired by the cable. The LED location is inevitable from the simplified design of the product but it' better if the indication can be seen from the side, top or opposite end of the case.

4.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended subject to environmental concerns, 31 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Halls Beeline Handklenz
I've not given 5 stars because I've become aware that, like many such products, it contains polyester beads that get into the aquatic life food chain to harmful effect. Why can't these products use a less harmful alternative abrasive? However in the absence of a better alternative HandKlenz is my preferred hand cleaner, I've tried many others over 50 years of dirty work. An excellent product that removes paint, oil, uncured adhesives etc without drying skin, it gives the impression of containing a moisturiser that I highly recommend. I wish it was more widely available through local retail outlets. I first discovered it through Screwfix but they no longer offer it.

Molex connector typical of the breed so not of the highest quality but quite adequate. It does the job.

5.0 out of 5 stars A simple low cast item that does the job., 18 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Does the job & even came with screws to mount the drive in the adapter. I had problems with alignment of the tapped case mounting holes with the holes in my case so had to enlarge the latter. However it looks to me as though it's my cheap case that's at fault.

5.0 out of 5 stars Low cost items that do the job., 18 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These items were ordered for use with a pair of StarTech bi-directional SATA/IDE converters & were delivered within the same boxes as the converters.

The power adapters came with both a male & female Molex connector in addition to the SATA connector so are more useful than the single Molex type shown. These low cost Molex connectors are the generally standard type that are prone to pin misalignment & pins coming out, but although these faults can cause difficulty they are easily overcome so criticism of them is unreasonable. For most users these Molex connectors will be fit for purpose, if frequent connection & disconnection is a requirement then more robust connectors would be more appropriate.

The SATA 2 lead plugs don't have the retention clips that some SATA 2 lead plugs have but they stay in the sockets well enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars The instructions leaflet is very poor, there is no guidance on jumper settings nor ..., 18 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Does the job & versatile in that it is bi-directional. I bought 2 converters for use in a temporary setup and both are installed and working. My requirement was to install 2 IDE drives into a PC with only SATA connections. Some difficulty was experienced due to the drives initially having unsuitable jumper settings. After much trial and error I found that the only jumper setting that worked for both drives was 'cable select'. IDE drives usually have at least two alternative sets of jumper settings so care is necessary to ensure that the appropriate setting is used. I made this mistake and was invited by WIndows 7 to reformat a 160GB drive to 32GB, in accordance with the jumper setting.

The instructions leaflet is very poor, there is no guidance on jumper settings nor information about the meaning of indications from the green & red LEDs hidden within the housing. Red seems to indicate healthy power & green seems to be associated with the data connection: flashing green OK, no or continuous green indicating something amiss, eg incorrect jumper setting. A dip switch setting is mentioned but I wasn't able to find a dip switch. Maybe the housing has to be opened to access it. There are bare circuit board converters available that look as though they may be the basis for those supplied, the difference being a housing which would explain a hidden dip switch.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good match to a Humax PVR, 1 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Web research suggested this would be the best match for wi-fi connecting my Humax PVR to my router. Occasionally it's necessary to unplug it & plug it back in to get a connection but apart from that operation has been faultless. I should add that the Humax wi-fi connection is rarely used.
