    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

    - Cheap - 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's small -Comes with SATA cable and a power cable converter Molex-Mini molex -Doesn't require any installation what so ever -Works with Windows 7 -Has an orange LED for connection confirmation, might be an issue for one who's into case modification -Package was alright, but the mini molex connector on the chip was bent so had to be pushed back. Works ... Read more

    - zero config other than cable fiddling - uses a floppy power connector, so you can finally use one of those power supply outputs meant for the floppy no one uses anymore. - comes with cables! - 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 ...

    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
