  • Works, but...

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    It worked for me.

    Very good to fixed use.

    Really cheap.

    Cons:

    It worked, but just using it with HDDs, it doesn't worked with CD or DVD Reader - Writer units. I've tried to use it to convert IDE CD Drives to SATA interface, and computer takes a little more to boot (in BIOS detection), and finally doesn't detect CD drives.

    Solder ticks are very weak, and i think could broke up.

    It have no user's manual. Just says "SATA => IDE" and "IDE => SATA" on SATA female connectors, but you just dont know wich connector you should use (IDE => SATA means IDE Drive to SATA interface, or IDE interface for SATA Drive?).

    OtherThoughts:

    I've explained everything upthere xD.

    Bottomline:

    Is very cheap, and it works with HDDs because doesn't need drivers. I don't know how much speed decreases using it, but it works! And it helped me to solve my problem! Thanks DX!
