This item has worked flawlessly. I initially purchased it because my 2003 model HP Desktop lacked any of the newer SATA connections. It works out and now I can make use of the 1TB disk drive that has been stored for about a month. It features 2 fire wire ports as well. Not sure why you would need two but at least they are there. Supposedly PCs communicate better with fire wire connections as opposed to USB 2.0. I am also going to be using this device to create additional storage on my DVR as well. Extremely satisfied.
If you're looking for a 60 dollar paper weight, then this is for you. Don't bother if you were hoping to dock drives in it for use. It only mounts when it wants to and if it does mount, it decides to unmount after a few minutes of use.
