Works great – ZIF to 1.8-inch Bilateral IDE Hard Drive Converter - Random Color Reviews

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

Pros:
- Works great with a Samsung ZIF SSD drive in a Dell Latitude X1 laptop.
- Small enough to pack into the space freed up in the target laptop because of the Samsung SSD being smaller than the Toshiba hard drive it replaces.
- Very cheap and ok quality.
Cons:
None, it works, is small and is cheap.
Other:
Not the fault of this device, but the Samsung SSD works in UDMA66 and so reverts to PIO mode when used in the Dell X1, since it only supports UDMA33 & UDMA100
Bottomline:
If you need to put a zif SSD in an old laptop this is the best solution.
