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

    Pros:
    Excellent built. Note that these adapters are passive just internal wiring without electronics required. Better than advertised: Comes in plastic case. Fast shipping.
    Cons:
    None. But be aware that older laptops may not recognize very large cards and/or may need extra PCMCIA flash drivers.

    Pros:
    Quality conctruction, overall look of brand product. Does the job perfectly. Fits in PCMCIA slot completely, there is nothing on the outside of slot.
    Cons:
    Price could be a little bit lower as it is actually a passive adapter.

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

    Pros:
    Works in Linux, Win95 and WinXP. Does not require CardBus, so it works on really old laptops. The build quality is good. I didn't notice the plastic case in the photos, so it came as a pleasant surprise.
    Cons:
    Windows 3.1 does not include drivers for it, so they must be transferred separately (if they exist). Also I didn't have much lu...

    It is painful slow. I tried it with Kingston 133x 8 GB CF card (20-25 MB/sec transfer speed). The PC card maximum interface spe...
