    Works as advertised

    posted by burnable on 09/25/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I had a spare laptop hard drive taking up space in my closet. With this little pcb I installed the drive into my desktop. It's very cheap and simple.
    Cons:
    The board does feel a little flimsy, but it isn't something that I will unplug often. So it won't be disturbed anyway.

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

    Pros:
    Real cheap. Decent build quality. Some other reviews here stated that build quality was not that geart. Well mine was. It actually felt more solid then I thought based on the pictures.
    Cons:
    Only that you have to watch how to connect the 2,5"disk in the right way. For me it felt logical, maybe for some folks it ...

    Pros:
    - Very cheap compared with prices in our local stores. - I used it to connect my laptop PATA/ATA hard drive (2.5") from old notebook in my PC to 3,5'' HDD connection. And it worked, but not for my purpose, because I wanted to crack PATA password. It ...

    Perfect for making Slim XBOX

    posted by DaveRose91 on 11/01/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Does exactly what it would say on the tin, if it came in a tin. No setup required (Plug and Play). Allowed me to use a 2.5" HDD in an XBOX, which uses less space and requires less cooling. This is brilliant especially if you are building a modified Sli...
    Cons:
    A little bit flimsy - I bought 2 and I am having to use the second 1 as the first 1 broke after about a year.
