Very cheap adapter – 40-Pin IDE to SATA or SATA to 40-Pin IDE Bilateral Adapter Card Reviews

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

Pros:
Easy installation, just plug the sata, ide and power cable and you are done. I used it to plug a new sata dvdrw drive in an old pata motherboard. It didn't work at all, but was a deffective dvdrw-drive. I didn't try again, since I got a pata dvdrw drive.
Cons:
Exceedingly low quality. Looks like it will break really easy. The connectors are a bit loose and looks like they will break at the first use.
Other:
I wouldn't buy this one again. Too fragile.
Bottomline:
Look for a better built one. Don't try this one.
