5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: After reading some of the reviews I decided to give this a shot. My primary computer didn't have enough connections on the mobo for another sata drive but I had two ide slots free and I used this to move one of the older sata drives onto the ide channel. Connected everything and it just works.

Cons: As some other users have commented on the ide pins, I'll just say that while there is not the plastic base surrounding the pins (I wish it did) they seem to be just as sturdy as the ones on everything else. May be more susceptible to bending if bumped or if the cable is placed improperly due to the fact they don't have the extra plastic surrounding it to guide and take a bit of force afterward but if you are handling the parts with care in the end it won't matter.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: plug n play just works< jumper settings directly on the card, barely increases the depth of the device when mounted.

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: win.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as promised

Pros: Easy to use.
No Drivers required. Just plug it in and and it does the rest

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: As with all PATA/IDE devices make sure you have the jumper set correctly (Master, Slave or Cable Select). This could explain why others could not get the board working.

The manual has some interesting translations. I'm not sure how to "shoot the computer down".

5 out of 5 eggsFlawless

Pros: Ordered this to interface with an IDE only motherboard. Works flawlessly.

Cons: The only downside is that is can be a little bulky when attached to a drive. Make sure you have ample space around HDD.

5 out of 5 eggsFlawless on Apple Mac Pro 1,1!

Pros: I wanted to upgrade my 2006 Mac Pro to Mountain Lion, using jabbawok's technique, and as a result, I had to convert a SATA drive to IDE. (In order to place my boot drive under the optical drive). At first I bought a generic adapter from an auction site, but I couldn't boot from the drive no matter what I tried. However, this Rosewill adapter worked flawlessly. I put the jumper on Cable Select, and connected it to the computer, and the Mac Pro booted up like nothing had changed. What more could you ask?

Cons: The manual is total "engrish" but thankfully, it's not needed for a product like this.

4 out of 5 eggsUpgrade a Dell Dimension 2400

Pros: Used to upgrade a Dell Dimension 2400 (IDE) to a 256gb sata SSD. Worked very well. No hardware hiccups, wored right out of the box.

Cons: None so far

2 out of 5 eggsOnly works intermittently

Pros: Well-built and easy to use, when it works.

Cons: Works for a while, and then the computer simply freezes. No crashdump, no blue-screen, nothing. It's like it hits an interrupt and stops the clock. Reboot brings everything back, but the problems persist. I bought the adapter (several months ago) to use with a Lite-On DVD writer that I purchased at the same time. I've used the writer externally through USB and it works great. Not internally on the IDE line, though. I did try using the original DELL IDE cable (I had switched because the differing lengths of the optical drive enclosures doesn't work with the short-distance DELL cable). I noticed that the DELL cable has a deliberate cut in line 27 (IOCHRDY) but that made no difference.

I guess I'll be calling the tech support line to see if they have any answers. I am troubled by the fact that one reviewer said that these adapters are not for use with DVD burners. There is no documentation on that...

Other Thoughts: I have also tried various suggestions: taping and isolating the adapter with electrical tape, trying various combinations of the master/slave/cable-select jumpers, swapping the pysical location on the cable, using various other IDE drives in combination with the SATA drive, only using the DVD burner to read CDs, etc. etc. Nothing seems to make ANY difference!

2 out of 5 eggsUpgrading older SuperCircuits DVR systems

Pros: I purchased 14 of these (Addondics and Startech) along with WD 1TB Green drives, to upgrade the capacity in our SuperCircuits 16-ch DVR systems (for my workplace). The drives were all detected correctly; one set to slave and the other to master per the HDD install instructions in the SuperCircuits documentation.

Cons: Now, for some reason, the DVD-RW drives on all 7 machines are not detected no matter what the jumper setting is on them. The DVD-RW is on a separate IDE bus, and there was a 3rd unused bus, so I tried that also. No luck. Unable to find any info about this from Addondics or Startech (the Rosewill appears to be the exact same). Unfortunately, the SuperCircuits systems we're using have documentation about as good as the instructions that came with these adapters. They support "400 GB or greater" drives, and it's difficult to tell if it's an issue with the WD drives or the adapters. Have been unable to find updated firmware for the DVRs....

Other Thoughts: I did break a rule for IT projects: Test one first, and if it works, then buy more... I kind of did it the opposite, assuming all would be well; didn't imagine the drives would work but cause some conflict with the DVD-RW on a separate bus!
