  • Useful with old psus and for modding,

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    * It's an adapter, very hand in lots of situantions, but specially with older power supply units.

    ** You use both ends for modding, sometimes you need to create specific adapters for an array of hard drives.

    *** Very cheap, and even cheaper if you buy a lot.

    Cons:

    * Quality is not that good and in hard drives that is critical, but i have never had any problem of corrupted files duee to the use of an adapter.

    ** Only 4 wires, native sata uses 3.3v also. I don't know if it stresses the harddrive, but i guess there isn't any problem.

    *** It ain't got any sleeving, if DX sold some sleeving it could be modded to be very nice and much more beautiful.

    OtherThoughts:

    * Cheap, good for modding, easy to use.

    ** It can be used to get some spare connectors, much harder to find and expensivier.

    Bottomline:

    Buy it if you deal with pc hardware, everything now is using sata but psu's have only a limited ammount of sata connetors.
