    -This is the only way to connect your IDE devices to the modern motherboard. -Really cheap compared to the prices in my local shop. -It's pretty small. -Easy to use. -The transfer rates are really low. Copying data from discs takes much longer than when connected to the IDE directly. -It could have some kind of cover to avoid touching the circuit board.... Read more

    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

    Well, my IDE hard disk died, and getting this adapter and a SATA drive was much cheaper than getting a new IDE disk. This is plug and play. It fits in the IDE slot on the motherboard, and you plug the SATA drive to it. It seems the board can be used in the reverse way too (plugged to an IDE disk, with the SATA cable running to the MB, but I didn't try ... Read more

    The must-have adapter if you want to use your legacy IDE HDD/CD/DVD drive with modern SATA motherboards. Also, it costs tree times cheaper than in our local store. Maybe won't suit small PC cases. Check if you have enough space inside the PC case for this card. Sometimes you won't be able to use it with DVD drive because the card rests against power ...

    Funciona perfectamente con un CD IDE y un disco IDE. Me permitió reaprovechar mi viejo DVD y así no tener que comprar otro. Es un poco grande si la caja esta justa de espacio o tienes la fuente de alimentación cerca. Pero supongo que este "cons" dependerá mucho de tu caja. Viene bien empaquetada, con un cable SATA y un ... Read more

    , the VERY BEST price around, Comes with cables. Both SATA and power cable..... over all a great product so yeah it's not a bad idear and to be honest I love the fact that the old technoligy and new one can be combined and reused! Build quality is not perfect. Doesn't work well with CD/DVD Drive - At first the BIOS wouldn't recognize the drive, but ... Read more
