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

    Works Fine

    posted by metro1000 on 09/07/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Works OK, use for testing out-of-laptop or permanent solution. Quality good. "Loopthrough" for floppy power supply, although this is probably a ggod use of a redundant power connector now nobody uses them.
    Cons:
    Soldered pins on 44pin connector end up a bit close to the case even with the provided stand offs. Use insulation tape to be su...

    There weren't any problems at all. Not sure what I'm going to do with the second adapter yet though. So maybe that's a con? I o...
