Silicon Goodness! – IDE CD/DVD Device to Laptop Connector Adapter (2-Pack) Reviews

Pros:
Excellent quality for the price, and you get two! Sturdy construction and firm soldering! Hooked up to my Xbox 360 HD DVD player so I could use the drive inside my desktop PC and works like a charm!
Cons:
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 only needed one. :)
Other:
Deal Extreme was the only site that offered these at such an unbelievable price! Plus they don't kill you on paying a ton for shipping for such a small device! I love you, Deal Extreme!
Bottomline:
It does exactly what it's supposed to. Hooks your small slimline laptop optical drives (or anything with the same adaptor) to your regular IDE in your desktop. Using the floppy power cable for this is sort of a lamer, but you can easily pick up a converter cable!
