    Pro's: works perfectly, cheap, small con's: No standardized holes for screws/other ways to tie it down. Bought this to change out the HDD in a small VAIO laptop for a flashdrive (ended up combining it with a CF-SD-converter from the same place) and it installed without any problems, no driver or...

    Bought it for the drive replacement in my Ipod 4th generation. Ipod had a worn out hard drive. Operation completed successfully. Ipod woke up instantly when i joined CF card through this adapter. Had some minor difficulties determining which one is the first pin but it only took some time. Should... Read more

    Reasonable price, physical size small enough to fit into the space previously occupied by a 1.8 inch HDD I ordered 3, one of them had a bent pin, should still work after straightening it out though. I had a mini laptop with a broken 1.8 inch hard disc and a compact flash card I had previously in... Read more

    Does what it has to do. It worked like a charm. It is easy & practical to replace a hard disk (in combination with compact flash cards, also available on this site). Only minor con is that you have to pay attention that the pins of the connector properly match with your compact flash. There a... Read more

    Very good item, works perfectly. I have this installed in an ipod with a 32gb flash card. Also would be good for other applications, I imagine The jumper on the board is the tallest part of the board. The jumper makes the board too tall, it would be better to remove it and solder the connection -... Read more

    Works, seems far more durable than it looks. Being used with a 133x 32GB Kingston CompactFlash card in a Toshiba Gigabeat F40. Speeds are comparable to use outside of the adapter (fast), so no complaints or issues there. It's not as cheap as the old one? I'd still pay double or triple what I did... Read more

    I replace it with Toshiba 1.8" HDD on my Toshiba Portege R200. It works well with 8GB Kingston CF card with x133 speed. Read/write speed is slower then HDD but the price is a lot more cheaper! (USD300 for a HDD VS Read/write speed is slow, not sure how is it with a higher speed CF card. to speed... Read more

    Easy to install- just plug it in and restore through iTunes. Very cheap and made my iPod work again after a few years of sitting around collecting dust. As previous reviews have stated, there is a jumper pin that needs to be bent back with pliers so the screen displays normally. Otherwise, a spot... Read more

    This product works as advertised to replace a 1.8" Toshiba drive with a compact flash card. Ive got it in a resurrected 4th generation iPod. The compactflash is more durable than a spinning hard drive, and this combination is much less expensive than trying to buy a new hard drive One hiccup... Read more

    Works absolutely fine for me. Just plug and play :) None for now. Maybe it should have some protective cloth so the device won't touch the back of the ipod and go short. I used duct tape to wrap it and isolate it. It does what it says. Perfect for my old and dead iPod 4-gen. Works perfect with to... Read more
