5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Worked great right out of the box. Small does not take up much space.

Cons: Discontinued.

Other Thoughts: I hate to see stuff that works become no longer available.

5 out of 5 eggsSATA to IDE Adapter

Pros: Small -- the right angle style allowed the adapter to fit in the space between my CD-ROM and power supply. Cheap -- gave new life to my old IDE CD-ROM. Function -- I plugged in the adapter and it works.

Cons: Other folks complained of the adapter shorting against their storage devices. Mine came with a rubber pad glued to the back of the circuit board. Not an eloquent solution, but it works.

1 out of 5 eggspiece of junk

Pros: 0 eggs, and I mean 0.

- it's L-shaped

Cons: - it's L-shaped without sufficient padding, meaning there is no backing when connecting plugs.

- Just look at it! I don't know what I was thinking. I thought it wouldn't be an issue, but its an uncovered adapter and thus prone to shorting if anything metal touches it (ie case or a random cable. Also there is no where to safely push the adapter into your HDD IDE pins without cutting yourself on the solder joints or board corners, or worse, bending IDE pins.

- IDE connector is not newbie friendly, is shoddy, and does not line up with HDD IDE pins without significant planning and thought

- padding on the back does not reach all the way to the drive, so its useless. Imagine a n L shaped plugged where the only half the bottom leg the L connects before hitting IDE plug resistance. All the force of plugging in the power and sata cable on the top leg of the leg concentrates shearing force on the on the IDE plug and pins, and is prone to being pushed 45 degrees out of socket and bendin

Other Thoughts: Don't get this if your drive pins face the back of your case or your cable management strings cables near it. The open board has no guarantee of not getting shorted by some bump on the case, or touching other wires. Shoddy design.

I'm going to get back my Antec adapter, though not L shaped, is a better way to go, even if I have to fit my IDE into a 5.25 bay to get it to fit in my full tower case.

3 out of 5 eggsworks...eventually

Pros: automatically installs driver
it works (pretty fast, too)

Cons: no instructions
sloppy construction

Other Thoughts: took me a few reboots and wire jiggling, but I got it to work.

Some of the adapter's soldered wires were too long and touched my HD's metal case... so I shorted my computer out. Fortunately, It just turned off the comp and I was able to reboot. File down (or cover w/ tape) these wires so they don't touch!!!

No instructions in package or online. Attach the SATA cable, then YOU MUST ATTACH POWER CABLES TO BOTH THE ADAPTER AND THE DRIVE!

5 out of 5 eggsJust what I needed

Pros: Does exactly what I needed them to do. I ordered two, as I had two older IDE drives I was transplanting from an ancient Linux box to a newer machine for use as the /home and /srv. Had them up and running within minutes, quick edit of fstab, and I was on my way!

Cons: One of them was missing the foam piece to insulate it from the drive housing. Had to improvise.

Other Thoughts: I wasn't sure when I started looking if something like this existed. Thanks to this product, I'll still be able to get use out of older drives that still have some life in them.

3 out of 5 eggsOk but...

Pros: Works as desired. Simple installation.

Cons: IDE pins need to be better: see 'Other thoughts'.

Other Thoughts: I ordered two of these adapters to enable use of two older HD with a SATA (only) MB. One of the adapters works just fine every time but the other needs to have the IDE connector reseated on the HD so often that leave the side cover off of the computer to gain frequent access. Very annoying.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat So far

Pros: Does exactly what it is supposed to do. Allows you to connect your IDE drive to a SATA port on your motherboard. One note is to make sure you follow the instructions. If your hooking up a hard drive to set it to master or your computer will not recognize the drive and will not boot. I don't know how these adapters would work for multiple devices in your pc, but for a single device it did not mask it's identity in the BIOS. Also it comes with a SATA cable and a power adapter to connect the drive if you do not have an available fdd power and molex for some reason.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I do agree with others that it is way over packaged. I mean its like 2.5 inches by 1 inch and the box is like the size of a small text book, but it is secured very well being pinched inside of the box with and egg crate like foam.

1 out of 5 eggsSmokin'

Pros: Came with SATA cables. One stop box to add a new HD to my computer

Cons: Turned on the power and just about started a fire! I think its the small black capacitor right above the white power adapter that blew apart literally.

Other Thoughts: Got a cheap Rosewill adapter at the same time just in case. No problems though no cables.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as advertised

Pros: Does exactly what it is supposed to. I felt the price was a bit high, but after using it I bought a second feeling it was actually pretty slick. Certainly better than my PCI Rosewill IDE card I was using that added a full minute to the boot time.

Cons: 2 small issues...I would prefer the two connectors plug in from the side as my connections are right up against my case window. Also, if you run multiple IDE devices this will mask the true identity of your device in the BIOS, which I expected. If you have two devices and each one has one of these adapters...you don't know which is which! Not a big deal though, just guess and if its wrong switch it.

5 out of 5 eggsit's the P I M P

Pros: Comes with everything...power connectors, SATA cable, all the amenities;) Got my stupid Lite-On drive to work on my system without causing issues with my DVD burner (using two Atapi devices is always an issue, as they both want to be Masters...with my new gigabyte board it became a serious issue, locked up every time I tried to use the DVD player). Lets you convert any IDE drive to SATA.

Cons: Lots of packaging for such a small piece of equipment. Sorry, the treehugger in me has to protest!

Other Thoughts: None, great product, if a bit pricey. But it works well, and is a quick solution to only having one IDE connector on your mobo. I had a Promise IDE controller, but it started having issues with later board revisions...so this seemed the way to go without having to use any PCI slots.
