This product is very cheap, but it is ok. In addition, it is really too short expensive, so it was worth the money. product quality is rather average ... welds do not seem to be of good quality ... but it still works! cables are supplied (power and SATA) with the adapter, and the price is really good. I was looking for a way to connect an old IDE hard ... Read more

Cheap - Possible to use old HDDs again - Has an activity LED the through-hole connector pins can touch the case of the attached drive. this shouldn't really be a problem, as drive cases are often painted and this solder appears coated... but i still put a piece of electrical tape over the back before mounting. Be careful of shorting out the 4 power ... Read more
- Possible to use old HDDs again
- Has an activity LED - Doesn't work well with CD/DVD Drive
- Build quality is not perfect For my old IDE HDD, this converter works perfectly. Make sure however to set the HDD jumper setting to 'Master', otherwise it won't work (at least that was the case for me). Also make sure you don't plug this converter ... Read more
Works well, I got my old IDE disk to work with it rather fast. It also comes with a SATA cable. Just connect the module to the disk and use the cables to connect it to power and the main board. The fit was rather tight, I had to press down hard. Also I can see how it might touch the metal on the disk. The build quality is not 100%, you might want to ... Read more
Fairly sturdy, easy to use, and brainless. Just plug it into the drive, pop in SATA (included) and the floppy power cable and voila - shows up to the computer as a SATA drive! Unplugging it feels like it might break, if your drive has a metal casing, you may want to cover the exposed contacts on the board with some electrical tape, and it doesn't work ... Read more
Works great, the VERY BEST price around, Comes with cables. Both SATA and power cable.. Back solder points are close to drive, but , not touching (at least in my case) But I could see where the could be a concern to some.. Just remember to check the clearance between the solder points and drive case...
If to close, a strip of electrical or splicing ... Read more

It works and it's cheap. It is compact enough to be plugged into any device without interfering. No speed degradation noticed with my CD-RW drive (didn't use it for a real hard-disk though). It requires a 4 pin power cable, which is included with the package, although you can use the floppy drive cable from your PSU. A SATA cable is also included. At ... Read more
