  • Very useful for thin clients/routers/NASes

    posted by kokornov on 11:45:43 G6T 06/06/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Great color. UDMA signal traces are present.

    Cons: Pin 34 on IDE connector is connected to CompactFlash card slot, so motherboard thinks that 40-wire IDE cable is connected. This makes modes faster than UATA-33 unavailable, even if the card itself supports them. This can be fixed by desoldering pin 34 from board, connecting it to ground (i.e. pin 30) and isolating the connection.

    Other: Great product for that price.

    posted by Sergikik on 01:07:17 G6T 06/06/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Works well, LEDs useful, Connects directly to motherboard IDE socket

    Cons: The card is not double CF as advertised. Interface is not the 44 PIN laptop IDE as advertised, but DX was very helpful and sent a converter.

    Other: Adapter is a bit tall and doesn't fit into some cases (eg. Mini ITX cases, other low profile cases and some tower cases where the IDE connectors are below the hard drive mounting areas).

  • adapter CF card to IDE (mobo slot)

    posted by danyolaf on 08:46:28 G1T 24/01/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Good product. The adapter work fine and and correctly. The materials are corrects and manufacture is good (but is not better). The adapter is correctly detected for mobos moderns and old. The adapter work perfect. Is usefull with small mobos (micro - mini ATX) or very old PC.

    Cons: The manufactured is good, but not is better. Is very fragile, install and not touch again (is possible broken easy the card adapter). The adapter insert into mobo IDE connector disable the second IDE to use with another device.

    Other: Good product, work fine, is interesting for test use, and production use. Good price for a great product. I recomended.

  • It just works!!!!

    posted by newtesla on 06:38:18 G7T 24/07/2012 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: -Easy to figure out -DMA-ATA 33 - totally compatible with everything IDE -Just works, plug-and-play -Mine is with one slot, and you can choose between Master and Slave - but you can plug only one into the motherboard, so it doesn't really matter/ but, might be good for various testing. -Works without power connected (IDE can supply enough power), but for LED you need to connect power connector. -Power connector for floppy - everyone has a spare on one's power cables :)

    Cons: -IDE connector is a bit tight -Soldering is ...well, made in China -LED's don't work without power connected.

    Other: Made for those x86-x64 systems which really don't need classic HDD with rotating plates, for whatever reason. Like when you need something as SSD, but not as fast, and lesser capacity. And yes - it is NOT hot-swappable, because standard says NO, not because of this device!

  • Very good adapter

    posted by Leobor on 03:46:49 G12T 09/12/2011 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Cheap. Easy install. I use it with Kingston card 8GB 133x. It work perfect. Motherboard old ITX GA-PCV2 w/processor VIA C3 800 MHz. Speed data (with this card) like IDE HDD. System: Windows XP Embedded. Best emotions.

    Cons: Not convenient plug 5V. I had to modify the connector on the cable - a little cut one side

    Other: I think it very useful gadget

    posted by boober on 00:16:31 G1T 24/01/2011 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: It's a single piese, with no flat cable, so no additional wires taking a place. It's more useful if you already finished your machine construction - just plug it to place, and no noodles at all. Power connector is rightly directed, not on some bottom side like SKU 711, for example. 3 LEDs (I still don't know what for, but looks nice)) Nice mechanical quality. Soldering is tolerable. I don't know if it use any kind of DMA, but with my old 64M and 2G CFs it now works fine.

    Cons: While you debug, plugging the adapter from one mobo to another, you'd better take one with the male socket (for cable), or you'll go angry trying to strike a mobo socket with this one again and again. Set to the place, with the CF insered, it's approx. twice higher than the nearstanding DIMMs, so be careful about this measurements if you use low-profile case. Also the thikness of the adapter may be a tip like on my 6VIA85 mobo where it was abutted tightly to a DIMM.

    Other: Very useful when building a *nix router, or mediacenter, or smth on old good MB with no of that USB boot features. Or just if you want to play the Prince on granny's dusty 1MB SX whose HD now came to the ashes. A little thing that must be in a garrage of any skilled mechanicist! :)

    posted by felix1220 on 00:28:53 G12T 23/12/2009 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Its very cheap and it works well. before i have had a (expensive) DeLock adapter, but it didnt work together with my a-data card, this one now has no problems, depending on your ide-port it also work without external powersource (pin20 must be active on your board. right now i have installed XP on one card without problems

    Cons: i bought 2 of them, one was not working. but the other one is great, even its of poor design, you must be carefull with the pins when you insert a card.

    Other: i dont think you can find anything cheaper.

    posted by SirUrx on 04:09:45 G3T 26/03/2009 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Works fine when connected directly to mainboard. Acts as SSD. Works with 2GB SanDisk Ultra2 CF card and some older 512M CF too.

    Cons: Needs floppy power connector to power up. I had one free but if power supply has only one of it and used for something else you need an adapter.

    Other: Easy to use, plug directly to mainboard, no IDE cable needed and no mounting problem.

  • Works just fine

    posted by zxnihundre on 15:21:04 G1T 21/01/2009 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Works fine in conjunction with a CF-card, thus acting as a cheap and simple SSD-unit.

    Cons: Very weak pins that are much too easily bended. So mount it cautiously! Might be a bit short of space on your mobo, depending on what type of motherboard is installed. It is on a Gigabyte mobo, at least.

    Other: Useful product - can be recommended to stationaries as well as laptops.
