    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Work in my car (oem gps system from honda) just plug and play it does not need to be fast to play mp3 or wma. Cheap, well built and the package was not too big.

    Cons: It's slow to copy files from computer to CF but work with no probles with Ubuntu. Slow Delivery

    Other: If you buy to play mp3 in your car, be sure to format the card fat32 and don't create lot of folder because it will be slower when GPS system boots. I have used an old CF 4GB from SanDisk. Great product, I definitely recommend.

    Pros: Excellent built. Note that these adapters are passive just internal wiring without electronics required. Better than advertised: Comes in plastic case. Fast shipping.

    Cons: None. But be aware that older laptops may not recognize very large cards and/or may need extra PCMCIA flash drivers.

    Other: Fully fit for purpose and well built. For older laptops (Win 3.1 or dos) you will need extra PCMCIA flash drivers to recognize CF cards, and some brands of CF work better than others. Sandisk is universally recognized. Others may need more work. Linux recognizes most ever card.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Quality conctruction, overall look of brand product. Does the job perfectly. Fits in PCMCIA slot completely, there is nothing on the outside of slot.

    Cons: Price could be a little bit lower as it is actually a passive adapter.

    Other: Useful thing if you are use CF cards frequently with your notebook and don't want to carry a conventional USB card-reader. Just plug it into a notebook and forget.

  • performs as described, but not beyond

    posted by axlety on 21:46:52 G12T 29/12/2009 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Works in Linux, Win95 and WinXP. Does not require CardBus, so it works on really old laptops. The build quality is good. I didn't notice the plastic case in the photos, so it came as a pleasant surprise.

    Cons: Windows 3.1 does not include drivers for it, so they must be transferred separately (if they exist).
    Also I didn't have much luck trying to boot an OS from it. Probably, the BIOS must support that option. Mine didn't, but others might.
    Seems to be pretty expensive for a simple interface adapter. I don't think there is any signal conversion involved.

    Other: Useful if you want to add storage to a win95+ laptop that does not have a USB port or a CardBus interface.

  • Very slow transfer speed

    posted by gogazon on 14:29:27 G10T 20/10/2009 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: It is not so easy to find out such gadget, and here it is cheap. If you don't have other usage for your PC card slot and you use CD cards, such device is good idea.

    Cons: It is painful slow. I tried it with Kingston 133x 8 GB CF card (20-25 MB/sec transfer speed). The PC card maximum interface speed is 133 MB/sec. But with this gadget I have only 1 MB/sec transfer speed! It is completely useless for me with that speed.

    Other: I regret for buying it. I will try to find out a good external (usb) card reader which can utilize the real speed of my CF card.
