It worked for me.
Very good to fixed use.
It worked, but just using it with HDDs, it doesn't worked with CD or DVD Reader - Writer units. I've tried to use it to convert IDE CD Drives to SATA interface, and computer takes a little more to boot (in BIOS detection), and finally doesn't detect CD drives.
Solder ticks are very weak, and i think could broke up.
It have no user's manual. Just says "SATA => IDE" and "IDE => SATA" on SATA female connectors, but you just dont know wich connector you should use (IDE => SATA means IDE Drive to SATA interface, or IDE interface for SATA Drive?).
I've explained everything upthere xD.
Is very cheap, and it works with HDDs because doesn't need drivers. I don't know how much speed decreases using it, but it works! And it helped me to solve my problem! Thanks DX!
