    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: the goods: i love the idea that it is a sealed case, but the execution falters(more in cons) very simple to understand; almost fool proof. good, not great, but good build quality.

    Cons: the bads: a bit to thick at the edges for the rubber shock obsorbers in a ipod. had to cut off the edges of the top peice, making it not so totally sealed because i wanted my rubber peices to fit. i just cut it down to the bend. i was getting the ipod sad face in all three ipods i tried this device in and i even made sure the cf card was good, so i tried the other users idea and the cello tape worked! almost cut the ribbon cable and my thumb shaving it down right, but it works flawlessly now. the screws will strip the plastic easilly and then be hard to remove, so i didn't care much for that. the other adapters are really cheap, and this one is alot more expensive, so i would have expected a better finished product than this. atleast the edges should have been slimer to fit stock hdd specs without cutting and hacking, and a tighter ribbon conector should be used.

    Other: bottom line: buy it if you want to put a cf in ur ipod. it works with a bit of fenagling, so its worth it in the long run, cuz nothing is rattling arround in my precious music player! if they were a little bit higher quality and lacked the flaws and small figets, then i would have totally been happy with double this price, but at this, price i had to knock a few stars here and there, as it is harder to use, a little pricey, and doesnt retain its enclosed status (something i bought this for specifically) after the modding it required. in the end it did what it claimed though, and thats why i chose to give it a five star total.

  • Great for resurecting iPods or any dead 1.8" micro

    Pros: This adaptor when combined with SKU 39396 or any other such high capacity CF can be used to replace a 1.8" microdrive and turn your device into a solid state (no moving parts) device. the dimensions of this adaptor are the same as an actual 1.8" microdrive. I used it to repair a friend's 5th gen iPod which had a dead Hitachi microdrive and it worked great.

    Cons: In my particular case I found that the iPod FFC (flat flexible cable) was too thin and would not lock properly into the ZIF connector of this adaptor (yes I engaged the locking lever) so it would't make contact properly and wasn't recognized as a drive initially. The fix is dead easy, just tape two layers of sellotape on the end of the FFC that used to plug into the microdrive (not the side with the contacts obviously, the other side ;-) and trim the excess sellotape with a razor so as not to protrude over the edges of the FFC then it will lock into the ZIF fine and work without any issues.

    Other: Great product, highly recommended and cheaper than some other alternatives.

  • Fantastic for making iPods solid state

    posted by Jase74656a on 13:25:22 G2T 17/02/2010 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: These are great, am using them to make iPod classics into solid state devices, no more SAD MAC or disk errors, which seems to be the most common fault for ipod classics and ipod video. I have also used one to upgrade a Sony Vaio to solid state for the boot drive ( OS ) it now loads in under 15 seconds to the desktop, and apps load in the blink of an eye. Makes a normal laptop super fast.

    Cons: None at all these just work.

    Other: If you want to make your ipod solid state or speed up your Sony Vaio mini laptop this is what you want. Buy some now...
