    I bought this to replace a mechanical HDD in a Toshiba Satellite Pro 420CDT and it recognizes a CF card as a HDD perfectly with no problems, running MS-DOS 6.22 and Windows 98 on a 4GB CF card. The only issue I had was when installing the adapter, as mentioned by other people here, there is a key... Read more

    ENG: I use this adapter together with the CF card to replace the regular HDD in a very old laptop Toshiba Tecra 550CDT. The OS NetBSD operating normally. Card SanDisk Ultra 32GB system sees as a normal HDD volume of about 30GB. Since the IDE interface used key, you must delete the corresponding Я... Read more

    Pros: Quality is good. I plugged my Compact Flash cards to the adapter then to my old laptop, and they worked without problems. Cons: None Last: If someone needs PATA-SSD but could not find any, this adapter will be the solution (with addition of a fast Compact Flash card).

    Impression:Very good;

    I'm using it with a Transcend 4GB CF card on a Amiga 1200 and works great! PCB could have the pin 1 indicator.

    I use this adapter for reviving some old laptops, using CF as SSD. Pros: Simple and clean construction. Fits OK in the place of the old HDD. Cons: None Other: Depending on the laptop HDD connector it might be necessary to cut one of the unused pins on adapter in order to fit the connector.

    Pros: It works well with a microdrive (since it is not big enough, my PC doesn't run well, not the fault of the item). Cons: It has no way of knowing easily the connecting side, fortunately, no harm can be done connecting upside-down, so if it doesn't work, try the other way. Beware SD-CF don't a... Read more

    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 a... 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 a... 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... Read more
