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

    Impression:Very good;

    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.

    Impression:excellent;

    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.

    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

    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... Read more

    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.... 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... Read more
