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

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

Pros:
was able to connect a DVD/CD writer to my desktop computer and test the drive
it reads DVDs and burned CDs just fine
the drive came from a three year old laptop that had been dropped
Cons:
would have liked a standard power connector instead of a floppy power connector
Other:
a good way to reuse parts from a broken laptop right now I'm using the adapter on
a desktop system which I cut out a slot for the DVD drive on one of the face plates of the computer and made a bracket to hold the laptop DVD drive in place
Bottomline:
good price and it works I really only needed one of these adapters maybe I'll find a use for the second one sometime
