3 out of 5 eggsworks but...

Pros: It works and enables me to use ide hdds/DVD drives. Easy to install and doesn't take much room

Cons: Nine times out of ten, when I have it connected to my motherboard, regardless if the sata port, it will cause one or two of my data drives to not be recognized by the system. Not sure if its a compatibility issue with gigabyte boards or just the converter but I have to reboot a few times to get all drives going (250 gb m2 as boot, 2 2tb, 11tb)

I've started just leaving it unplugged unless I need it

Other Thoughts: Wish I could leave it plugged in, but I rarely need it and with the hdd issues it causes for my storage drives just not worth it. If you need data off an old ide drive this is perfect, but would recommend replacing it with a data drive asap

Pros: No idea if it works.

5 out of 5 eggsVantec IDE to SATA Converter - Model CB-IS100

Pros: Does exactly what it says.
Seems sturdy enough to last for what I paid.

Cons: None, UNLESS you don't have a 4pin Molex (old psu cable) connector.

Other Thoughts: The IDE device must be set to MASTER (with the jumper) or it will not work, cause the bios to load slowly and will cause Windows(OS) to simply get stuck in the boot up process.

1 out of 5 eggsVantec CB-IS100

Pros: None

Cons: CB-IS100 was the last piece of rebuilding my computer. Everything is fine and just bought the product to hook an old secondary drive up. Checked all connections several times. The product appears to be non-functional

Other Thoughts: Hope I can get a working one ASAP.

4 out of 5 eggsCan be a bit tricky

Pros: It woks.

Cons: A bit slower than my IDE-USB3.0 converter.

Other Thoughts: I use it to fit my WD 80G IDE drive to test out Windows 10 tech preview. Windows 10 won't boot when in SATA mode. Windows 7(installation disc) has the same problem. But when I switched it to an older WD 20G drive, it booted up okay. When in IDE mode, everything works fine, but it's a hassle to have to change the BIOS setting every time I switch the OS (and the hard drive).

The solution is to load vendor SATA driver(works in my case, MB: Asrock Z77 Pro4-M), but Windows 10/whole system is not responsive during boot-up, so the trick is to unplug SATA cable while the system still hangs (the system will respond and enter setup screen), plug it back in, and load driver. (Don't use Asmedia SATA port if you have the same MB.)

Unplug SATA cable, boot Windows installation disc up, and then plug it back in won't work (at least in my case). Windows setup program will complain a mismatch with BIOS detection and refuse to continue.

Everything works fine with Linux(Ubuntu).
