Rated 4 out of 5 by from What an adapter! Wow. What can one say about this great adapter? One side fits the standard IDE ribbon connector and power source that's inside the PC. The other side fits into the back of the 2.5" laptop HD...just like it should! And best of all, somehow, the little pieces of data flowing between them don't even get bunched up or stuck in a hairy mess as they go from the big side into the little side. This adapter enabled me to rescue the info on my laptop HD without a problem. It would be nice if they included a jumper for the laptop HD so you could easily make it a slave drive and recover the data.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Product Product work just like we expected it to. I had no issues connecting the IDE cable to adaptor. The included instructions were easy to follow and the connection was up and running in a few minutes. The only draw back is that the power connection is slightly loose. Not so much that the connection falls apart, but with enough jostling when I was placing the hard drive into a bay that the connection did fall off. Since finalizing the installation I have had no issues and can access the lap top hard drive is no problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works If your laptop information is important to you. And you don't back it up. You nneed this when your laptop breaks. You need a basic understanding of computers to use this. And got to be careful with the pins they can bend easy. If you don't what I meant about the pins. Don't get this, you won't know how to use this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked like a charm! Used these cables with my IDE cloner to expand my capabilities to laptop drives. Much cheaper than going to OEM of cloner for adapter cables. Worked without a hitch!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential cable This is an essential cable to have in this day and time. I had a laptop go down due to my daughter spilling liquid on it. I had some files that I had not backed up yet to another source and I was able to easily transfer them to my desktop pc. Keep in mind you do have to have enough computer knowledge of how to connect the cable internally. There are IDE to USB adapters available but you can boot a pc from a laptop hard drive with this cable

Would it connect to a 2.5" Toshiba HDD I have in a HP pavilion Ze 4800 us note book?

Asked by: Doc
That product would work with that Toshiba hard drive. It will allow you to connect that hard drive to an IDE cable on a desktop computer. If you wanted to connect the drive to a USB port on a different computer, you would need part #30504 instead.
