4 out of 5 eggsSTARTECH 35BAYCF2IDE

Pros: * Fit's in a floppy drive slot
* Great replacement for conventional HDD

Cons: * Holes did not line up with existing holes for floppy drive (that's the only reason I could not give it 5stars, drilled/tapped holes to match)

Other Thoughts: Used this to retro-fit a break press.
The existing hard drive was going bad and motherboard only supports hard disks up to 2gb. Works great. Now running dual boot system win95 and WinNT 4.0

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This is a great solution for proprietary controllers using the older and hard to obtain 4 to 20 Gig parallel IDE drives. We used Norton Ghost to backup the hard drive to CD-R's. Then used Ghost to restore the backup image to the Compact Flash card. Using a 15MS/Sec CF card it seemed to be about the same speed or slightly faster as a 5400 RPM hard drive.

Cons: Many of the hard drives in the controller PC's that we have used the holes on the bottom to mount the drive. Since this CF to IDE adapter DOES NOT have the mounting holes on the bottom of the bracket it slowed the install time when trying to mount it in the same location that the original hard drive was mounted

Other Thoughts: This is a great solution for older PC's being used as industrial controllers. You don't have to worry about the hard drive drive failing (bearings locking up etc) at the worse possible time.

5 out of 5 eggsVery good product

Pros: Very good build quality. Everything seems solid and best of all it works. Works with FreeNAS.

Cons: I wish there where more than 2 mounting holes. (Minor con so no eggs off)

Other Thoughts: I bought this for my FreeNAS build and had no problems, just attached everything and brought up my new CF HDD in the BIOS. The other reviews are correct this is a quality made product, when installed in the case with one screw on each side (my only complaint) there is no wiggle and the button ejects the CF card with no problems. It was worth the higher cost than the other similar products. The included PCI slot bracket is nice if i ever want to hide this on the back side of the case.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks as it should

Pros: Comes with 3.5in bay adaptor and rear slot adaptor for your computer case. Well made and assembled. Works as designed.

Cons: Rear case adaptor could be better if it used all 4 mounting holes on the card, then it wouldn't feel so flimsy when ejecting flash cards.

Other Thoughts: My plan was to build a silent pc with this adaptor, and so far I am very satisfied. Performance of your CF modules will determine if this is the product for you. IDE is slowly going away, but the price of CF memory makes this an interesting option vs. HDD if you want to keep an older machine running.

5 out of 5 eggsIt works.

Pros: It works. I am using it for a FreeNAS install, so my performance requirements are low. I never bothered to verify if DMA was working - that has been a concern with similar products from another manufacturer.

The box contained a PCI slot bracket!!! - so I can mount it in a PCI (rear panel) slot if I so desire.

The front mount metal bracket is powder coated metal, and looks rather presentable.

Cons: More expensive than competitor's products.

Other Thoughts: The Newegg photos really ought to include the rear panel bracket. The manufacturer's website has a photo if you need to see one - this feature is documented in the manual also.
