-This is the only way to connect your IDE devices to the modern motherboard.
-Really cheap compared to the prices in my local shop.

If you accustomed to handle computer hardware, it's really easy to get this adapter working. Just plug any drive in each end and you're done. It is also quite small, so you won't even notice it once the case is closed. I can't point out any cons. Maybe its reliability, since it's a cheap product. It could also have a plastic cover to avoid touching ... Read more

Viene bien empaquetada, con un cable SATA y un ... Read more
