Good at the beginning – CF to IDE Adapter Reviews

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

Pros:
You can use a compact flash as a normal HDD. Ideal for mounting on mini-itx cases as hdd for networked htpc for instance.
Cons:
At the beggining it worked i could install windows and ubuntu on it. But one month later the OS was not working good. I thought it was the mini-itx wich is an old epia. But after some tests it resulted that the problem was on the device wich was not readable some times so the OS could not boot.
Other:
Bottomline:
I will not buy this thing again. Actually i'm thinking about buying another one or not. If i have to buy another one i will buy one with female ide connector so i can plug it direct to the mobo.
