    I have a few ide/sata 2.5 and 3.5 inch drives that I need to pull the data from.

    There are a number of devices out there but I am looking for some recommendations ion which one to consider.

    thanks

    Got a Mac with USB2.0?

    Apricorn DriveWire works great for me.

    3.5PATA, 2.5PATA, and SATA connections on it.

    What you need is called an External Hard Drive Caddy, preferably USB 2.0. Theres hundreds around, personally i'd just say go for the cheapest you can find, mine cost $15 and it works like a treat for SATA and IDE 2.5 and 3.5" drives.
