Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
1. Not expensive.
2. Relatively good build quality.
3. Easy to install (you must connect the IDE-cable, 7-pin SATA-cable and a 4-pin power cable (similar to the power cable FDD)).
Cons:
Only one minus: BIOS does not see all the motherboards HDD, connected via a device
Other:
I bought this device to connect SATA HDD to the motherboard with an IDE interface, but now use to connect IDE HDD to the motherboard with a SATA interface.
Bottomline:
Can be used for various purposes: SATA -> IDE or IDE -> SATA
