    Perfect decision if case you have one CD drive with this connector laying in cupboard and don't know how to plug it. Also it's cheap. And you have two of them! BEWARE OF THAT! -Doesn't have master/slave jumper, so you have to use it one on cable. -If you'll tighten the screws, they will stop tray mechanics. If that happens, look, which of them does ...

    Working adapters. Connector shells take guesswork out of cable orientation. The board protrudes past the rear edges of the drive, so if you need to slide the drive through a matching opening or the sides of the drive body are mounted against a flat surface, you might not be able to install the drive with this adapter installed. The provided drives screws ... Read more

    Cheap. even though I needed only 1. It 's still cheap. Now I have 1 spare. Power/audio connector located aside the connector, making it accessible. Have seen other types where those are located just beneath the IDE Connector. Not really i can think of. Remember that most of the laptop DVD/CD are configured as master. So when attaching a harddisk on ... Read more

    Had some laptop drives that was not in use. Orderet this and it worked as described. Easy install, just 1 minute. The price is great for this product. The build quality is very good and the needed screws are included. It would be easier if this item came with a standard power connector instead of a floppy power connector (not to many floppy-power plugs ... Read more

    Works OK, use for testing out-of-laptop or permanent solution. Quality good. "Loopthrough" for floppy power supply, although this is probably a ggod use of a redundant power connector now nobody uses them. Soldered pins on 44pin connector end up a bit close to the case even with the provided stand offs. Use insulation tape to be sure of no ... Read more

    Excellent quality for the price, and you get two! Sturdy construction and firm soldering! Hooked up to my Xbox 360 HD DVD player so I could use the drive inside my desktop PC and works like a charm! There weren't any problems at all. Not sure what I'm going to do with the second adapter yet though. So maybe that's a con? I only needed one. :) Deal Extreme ... Read more
