it serves it's purpose
I didn't pay a lot for this item so I tried to set my expectations accordingly. Ultimately, it works fine as a way to connect an extra 3 1/2 inch hard drive to other computers via USB. The description says the unit is self-powered. However, there is a power cord included... you draw power from the PC. The power cord is built to plug in to either a USB or PS2 port. I can't get it to work in a USB port which is a little frustrating but as long as you can plug the power into a PS2 port it works fine. The connector is built with a pass-through so you can still connect your mouse and the cord at the same time. Overall, you can get this to work well with a little patience. For the money I paid I'm satisfied with the ability to use my extra laptop drives for transferring and backing up data.
