    Pros: the thort of beeing able to convert an old IDE to a sata is great so I like the way it looks and things like that

    Cons: one big con is the fact that when I wanted to use them one of them shorted out it's power cable witch made a deasent amout of plastic smelly smoke and was't able to see where the problem was but the computer was / is running fine after it so it luckylly did't take anything else with it but it made me restructure the whole layout and I was going back to the old IDE cable and made the layout from that so insted of a computer with two opticals ( do to a missing blank front plate this is something I need to ) from that and two hdds and a cople of molex cable fans to a layout where there is one hdd two optical and a few molex fans

    Other: over all a great product so yeah it's not a bad idear and to be honest I love the fact that the old technoligy and new one can be combined without throughing out the old one and have to buy new if the computer system is't going to be used for something other then small amout of date processing like error code reading on a car or something like that to that job there is no need for a state of the art pc with the meanest kind of gpu card :-)

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Cheap - Possible to use old HDDs again - Has an activity LED

    Cons: the through-hole connector pins can touch the case of the attached drive. this shouldn't really be a problem, as drive cases are often painted and this solder appears coated... but i still put a piece of electrical tape over the back before mounting.

    Other: f you have an older ide cdrom/dvd/hdd kicking around, this might just be the thing to get some more life out of it

    posted by wi11ow on 04:17:06 G8T 05/08/2012 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Works well, I got my old IDE disk to work with it rather fast. It also comes with a SATA cable. Just connect the module to the disk and use the cables to connect it to power and the main board.

    Cons: The fit was rather tight, I had to press down hard. Also I can see how it might touch the metal on the disk. The build quality is not 100%, you might want to take care you don't break off anything.

    Other: It does what it needs to do, I got my PC working with it in no time. I'd recommend buying it, it's very good for its price :)

  • Works well, but only on HDD

    posted by Speederase on 19:22:20 G5T 04/05/2011 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Fairly sturdy, easy to use, and brainless. Just plug it into the drive, pop in SATA (included) and the floppy power cable and voila - shows up to the computer as a SATA drive!

    Cons: Unplugging it feels like it might break, if your drive has a metal casing, you may want to cover the exposed contacts on the board with some electrical tape, and it doesn't work on CD/DVD drives - only hard drives!

    Other: Good price, product seems to work (though I haven't yet put it through its paces). I'd recommend it!

    posted by DragonPoo on 15:19:52 G4T 27/04/2011 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Works great, the VERY BEST price around, Comes with cables. Both SATA and power cable..

    Cons: Back solder points are close to drive, but , not touching (at least in my case) But I could see where the could be a concern to some..

    Other: Well, well worth the money. I have yet to see it even remotly close to this price. Normal asking price for something close is around $19.15

    posted by Diarto on 15:35:47 G2T 07/02/2010 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: -It's small -Comes with SATA cable and a power cable converter Molex-Mini molex -Doesn't require any installation what so ever -Works with Windows 7

    Cons: -Has an orange LED for connection confirmation, might be an issue for one who's into case modification -Package was alright, but the mini molex connector on the chip was bent so had to be pushed back. Works fine though.

    Other: GREAT gadget for anyone who has an old hard drive and no empty IDE connector and loads of SATA connectors.

  • what a steal

    posted by emiliogon on 16:12:45 G8T 02/08/2009 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: - zero config other than cable fiddling
    - uses a floppy power connector, so you can finally use one of those power supply outputs meant for the floppy no one uses anymore.
    - comes with cables!

    Cons: - the through-hole connector pins can touch the case of the attached drive. this shouldn't really be a problem, as drive cases are often painted and this solder appears coated... but i still put a piece of electrical tape over the back before mounting.

    Other: a great answer for modern motherboards that have only one IDE channel. my Asus mobo has one IDE channel and like 6 SATA channels, and i have one IDE HD, one SATA HD, and TWO IDE optical drives. that means one optical drive was out in the cold before i got this - but now, i can use an old DVD drive as a dedicated game disc drive!

  • It works

    posted by tutils on 23:38:50 G5T 23/05/2009 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: It works and it's cheap. It is compact enough to be plugged into any device without interfering. No speed degradation noticed with my CD-RW drive (didn't use it for a real hard-disk though). It requires a 4 pin power cable, which is included with the package, although you can use the floppy drive cable from your PSU. A SATA cable is also included.

    Cons: At first the BIOS wouldn't recognize the drive, but after trying all jumper configurations it finally worked with "cable-select".
    Build quality is good enough for one-time installation, but I wouldn't recommend on moving it from device to device on a regular basis.
    The caption on the package can be misleading. This is an IDE to SATA converter, not the other way around.

    Other: I'm buying another one for my DVD drive.

    posted by n4zou on 22:49:44 G4T 10/04/2009 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Works perfectly! I had an old 30 GiB hard drive just laying around so I plugged this little device where the ribbon cable would have gone and plugged in the power and SATA cables. The BIOS found it as did my Windows and Linux operating systems.

    Cons: Be careful of shorting out the 4 power pins. They can touch the metal case of hard drive. I put a little peace of tape on the metal case where the pins could come in contact and accidentally short them out. No big deal really and may not be a problem with all drives.

    Other: Good product.
