Did the job – ZIF to 1.8-inch Bilateral IDE Hard Drive Converter - Random Color Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
- The price, of course. You get the adapter and two cables (For Toshiba and, I believe, Hitachi drives)
- When it works, it does exactly what it's supposed to.
Cons:
- My first purchase was DOA. I thought it was a compatibility issue, but then I purchased a second adapter and that one was fine.
- The cables are very fragile (not Dealextreme's fault).
Because of both of these cons, I would suggest purchasing at least two of them. At this price, it's worth it.
Other:
My second purchase worked like a charm to upgrade my Gigabeat F series MP3 player 50 pin drive to a ZIF-based drive.
Bottomline:
Assuming you don't get a dud, it does exactly what it's supposed to.
