    Pros: Good price Cons: Very poor quality, totally unusable! Basically price shows the quality.. Power connector + (red cable) is burnt and unusable. Printed circuit board looks ok but proper look gives a feeling of poor conditions of place where they make it. Kinda homemade quality. Only good is... Read more

    I tried converter with HD and CD drive, it worked OK. If drive jumpering (mastrer/slave/cable select) is wrong, the drive do not work. Cons: SATA connection cable is only 26 cm long, so you might have another cable. Bottonline: This is just the ecuipment tahat I was lookinng for.

Very low price, and works flawlessly. There's no kind of casing, so inner workings of converter are bare to touch. Risk of electric Well... Read more
