This review is from: StarTech USB2SLSATINT USB Header to Slimline CD/DVD Optical SATA Adapter
Pros: Great. *Saves a Sata port for another harddrive on a motherboard that only had 2 channels. *Pretty quick interface. *Takes additional power from old school 3.5 floppy power connector if you need it. *Quite slim so it doesnt slick out too much on the back *Worked in Fedora, ubuntu, Win7 and WinXP.
Cons: Doesnt include the internal usb cable... really...
Other Thoughts: I needed this to work and didnt want to wait another week, so I took an old internal cdrom drive audio cables, moved the wires around on the plug to cover ground, + data and - data. The floppy power cable supplied the power and ground. A bit MacGyver but it works... the pin out is quite clear.
