USB 2.0 Cable Adapter Converter

Hello Community,
I have about 10 old hard drive that I need to extract the data from, rather than installing it onto my pc, I am trying to decide should I buy the USB 2.0 Cable Adapter Converter, or External Enclosure?
Thank you for your help

  1. Since you have 10 drives a docking station would be better than an external enclosure.
    Here's a link to one: http://www.google.com/products/catalog?q=IDE+%22Hard+Drive+Dock%22&hl=en&biw=1536&bih=788&num=10&lr=&cr=&safe=off&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=shop&cid=17217768208462544754&sa=X&ei=G6GLTvn4FcHnsQLYvv2iBA&ved=0CJMBEPMCMAA#

    You can do additional searches if you wish to see if you can get one at a lower price.
  2. It depends what kind of hard drives those 10 are.
    You need to know the interface of the hard drive (IDE, SATA, SCSI, etc).
    Also, what is the size of the hard drive? Not capacity but the dimensions of the hard drive. If they are laptop IDE hard drives, you can use this enclosure.

    Works out pretty cheap and it is easy to change the drives.
