Some cons – IDE CD/DVD Device to Laptop Connector Adapter (2-Pack) Reviews

posted by CRImier on 04/22/2011 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Perfect decision if case you have one CD drive with this connector laying in cupboard and don't know how to plug it. Also it's cheap. And you have two of them!
Cons:
BEWARE OF THAT! -Doesn't have master/slave jumper, so you have to use it one on cable. -If you'll tighten the screws, they will stop tray mechanics. If that happens, look, which of them does and cut it.
Other:
Use ot for old HP E-Vectra mobo which needs a drive with only +5v power needed, and I found one and used it with this adapter. It's good!
Bottomline:
If cons don't matter for you and you need it, buy it!
