    Pros:
    -Easy to figure out -DMA-ATA 33 - totally compatible with everything IDE -Just works, plug-and-play -Mine is with one slot, and you can choose between Master and Slave - but you can plug only one into the motherboard, so it doesn't really matter/ but, might...

    Good SSD and USB alternative

    posted by boober on 01/24/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It's a single piese, with no flat cable, so no additional wires taking a place. It's more useful if you already finished your machine construction - just plug it to place, and no noodles at all. Power connector is rightly directed, not on some bottom side...
    Cons:
    While you debug, plugging the adapter from one mobo to another, you'd better take one with the male socket (for cable), or you'...
