    This thing is amazing for reusing old PCs to transform then in Thin Clients Thin PCs to connect to remote desktops. You will not need to buy hard drives for that OLD PC anymore, since you can install some Linux distro on a compact flash and boot directly to a Windows Remote Desktop directly! It will boot FAST and will not have any noise! Nothing, no ... Read more

    Small, good quality. Absolutely unbeatable price. IDE connector polarity is not simply to find. There's neither pin1 mark nor key-pin on IDE connector. Let's you create low-cost SSD disks especially for older PCs with IDE HDD. If you want a disk without any moving parts in your old laptop, then this is the solution Has one red busy LED and jumper for ... Read more

    Works great with a Compaq Contura 3/25 (386 laptop) under DOS and Windows. The device is transparant to the system as it appears like a normal hard drive. None really, these cost €7,00 locally, and that's not even with free shipping! If you have an old 386 or 486 laptop, get one of these because you can make your system completely solid state, as most ... Read more

    This adapter offers a much better alternative to having to track down a decent second hand IDE-44 hard drive, which is starting to get pretty difficult these days. Besides, the added speed boost of having solid state storage is pretty nice. I've been using this adapter for about a year now in my laptop-turned-server and the entire setup is very responsive ...

    Works as expected. Reasonably good build quality. None. Pin polarity IS marked on the PCB (marking is even visible on DX photos - look at the white triangle next to header). I recommend this item. It is useful for upgrading mechanical HDD-s in old industrial equipment to fast CompactFlash drives. (Just get CompactFlash that identifies itself to IDE ... Read more

    * They are cheap. * One of them was damaged with a cut, so I had to rewire it to make it work properly. * Need to sort out a few issues, so it is not plug and play right out of the box. These issues are explained in the next section. The first one: You need to cut a pin to insert it into a laptop adapter. The second one: This is a less important, but ... Read more

    Very useful and easy to use. It is cheap and it works. Provided you have an old laptop with no fans, you can build a system with no moving parts at all. You must find the pin that needed to be cut yourself. Need a hard drive in a mini pc? Use this device in combination with a CF card to boot the system. Just to mention it would be perfect if i could ... Read more

    Very cheap and useful. I build my own "poor man's SSD" for my old laptop with this adapter. I found the same products at local computer store, they cost more than $12 and that's insane! Thanks DX for providing good adapter in a very affordable price. You must find the pin that needed to be cut yourself. But there's many tutorial on the Net,... Read more
