    Pros: this is such a simple item that is allmost impossible to misuse or not know how to use it.

    Cons: taking in consideration that unqualified person will not order such a thing there are virtually no cons.however it is a danger to the hdd because of the open construction stile.a short circuit or an accident can and will happen if you do,t take good care.

    Other: works ok,looks ok,best value for the money,if you need such an adapter go buy it.

    Pros: It works without problems. There is no mayor complexity about it. There is no electronic components and it just matches laptop hard drive pins in desktop computer conector. Build quality is according to use it by first time and then be used for many years inside the computer.

    Cons: No cons for me.

    Other: It works fine on my computer. Build quality is satisfactory, considered that I touched it the day it arrived and it has been working fine inside the computer.

    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.

    Other: At this price, just buy it!

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Very cheap. No special drivers/software required. Great for testing PATA laptop hard-drives.

    Cons: Very flimsy. No covering for solder points. No hard drive mounting caddy.

    Other: If you need it, buy it. You probably wont find it anywhere else cheaper. However if you need a long term solution you should probably look to getting one with a caddy for the drive & with solder points that are not exposed.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    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 doesn't. I believe some other reviewers stated how to connect it. Otherwise, just like at how a 3,5" would be connected (which side up).

    Other: If you have a broken laptop with 2,5" PATA HDD and want to check if you can get the data off it, or if you want to mount a small HDD in reglugar computer (casemod/mini-pc/whatever the reason for still using PATA), just buy this thing. For this price, you cannot even blame DX for the fact that some of these are supposedly with bad soldering.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    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 did not worked with software, because you can not unlock Hitachi ATA 2,5'' HDD that easy.
    - Also you can use such prop for backup, restore o maintenance purposes.

    Cons: Could be isolated, because it is hard to place it in place without it touching metal.

    Other: Buy it if you want to repair or check your old laptop ATA HDD with your PC tower.

    Pros: Simple, no electronics whatsoever adapter.
    Dirt cheap.

    Cons: Soldering quality is not good, some tracks were hardly soldered.

    Other: A specialty adapter that does the job.
    You can't go wrong with that price, unless you don't want to bother with reinforcing bad soldering joints.

    posted by DaveRose91 on 07:16:30 G11T 01/11/2011 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    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 Slimbox, or have bought a hardware upgraded 'TrustyBox' with the faster CPU, as this will help cooling.

    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.

    Other: Great Value product, highly recommended to all at this brilliantly low price point.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Nothing at all, you should know where to use it!

    Cons: two adapters I received are not working at all !!! One has pin23/40pin which is IOWR open circuit. Another has solder splashed on the solder side of 44 sockets making two socket short circuit. These failure made my hard disk corrupted! Be prepared to check it with Ohm-Meter and visual inspection in prior before you install it which I failed to do so.

    Other: Don't let the price fool you.

    Pros: · Price 5/5: $1.59 is a bargain price. · Ease-of-use 4/5: Just connect the power, the PATA 3.5", and the PATA 2.5". · Build Quality 3/5: Solid pieces and solid plate. · Usefulness: It does its job.

    Cons: · Ease-of-use 4/5: Anyone may can get in trouble for connecting the 2.5" as the converter connector does not have the blind hole for helping you connecting your HDD. · Build Quality 3/5: Bad done welds, done with too little care.

    Other: It's always pleasant and usefulness to get a very very cheap converter like this, althought it may not be very good built, so, this is a cheap and useful gadget. Worth it.
