5 out of 5 eggsBest IDE Solution Yet

Pros: I have searched for a way to use my trusty old Plextor CD writer with the new SATA only motherboards. I have dumped numerous dollars into IDE to SATA converters to see one go up in smoke and almost burn up my computer room and others not work at all. I even bought another PCI to IDE controller card. That didn't have the proper drivers and wouldn't work either. Well, this is the BEST solution for my problem. I put it into the motherboard, hooked up the IDE cable to the controller card and my drive...powered up the drive with my old trusty molex connector and then powered up the computer. Everything worked WITHOUT any drivers and now my old Plextor is useful and I am finally happy to have found this solution.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsAs advertized

Pros: It does what it is supposed to do. Allows me to use some older optical drives on a MB that doesn't have IDE support... Works with linux mint.

Cons: Has a bios flash when booting which hesitates for a few seconds before going to MB boot. But since the comp it is in doesn't reboot very often this is no problem. It would be nice if it was a little cheaper but I understand this is older tech.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect!

Pros: Works flawlessly. Installed on Gigabyte GA-Z97X. Windows 7 64bit recognized it right away. My IDE couldn't be happier, so am I.

Cons: None so far. Hope it will last for a while.

5 out of 5 eggsYe Olde Interface

Pros: Just throw this thing into a PCI Express slot, and it's good to go. Don't even need to install any drivers. Truly PnP. Great if you need to interface with some REALLY old hard drives.

Cons: In truth, none. IDE is really old and slow though, so don't buy this so you can use IDE drives for an extended period of time.

Other Thoughts: I need to run check disk on a really old Windows machine to fix a disk error, however, said disk error was making this machine unable to boot. I needed to connect to another computer that could boot and run check disk on it that way. This is where this card came into play, as I don't have any archaic computers that have IDE connections. Put this in, hooked up the hard drive, did the check disk, and it was fixed and the machine was able to boot again. The only use for this card is to access old hard drives in some way, other than that, there's no need for it.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Perfectly

Pros: This adapter works exactly like it should. I used it to attach my all-time-favorite (IDE) DVD burner to a motherboard that only has SATA ports. Device Manager in 64-bit Windows 7 correctly identifies the DVD drive manufacturer, model, and it's firmware. I have two other optical drives attached to the same mobo via SATA, plus 2 hard drives via SATA.

Cons: takes up a PCI Express slot.

Other Thoughts: have previously tried the SATA to IDE adapters that attach directly to the IDE connector on the back of an IDE drive. they work, but Device Manager in Windows is not able to detect what drive is attached.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: Extra driver not needed. Packaged well.

Cons: It's perfect.

Other Thoughts: Did a 2 step installation, first the card and boot, then hook up IDE CD drive and Hard Drive. It has to be the easiest installation ever. Not a single problem or configuration setting.

5 out of 5 eggsWorked great on GA-AM1M-S2H

Pros: I Upgraded an exsisting Case that Had a great Power Supply. I ordered a GA-AM1M-S2H mother board and it had only two Sata Connectors. I need both for a SSD Drive and Hard Drive. Didn't realize the CD drive was IDE. Eventhough this was a bit expensive, I bought this for the IDE CDRW Drive. It need NO drivers and the Motherboard Recognized it before loading WIN 7.

Cons: NONE

5 out of 5 eggsNice Little IDE Controller

Pros: I had two old IDE HDDs that I wanted to "recycle" in my newest computer build. Since my new motherboard has no IDE headers, this card did the trick. It was simple to install, required no drivers, and works fine. I can now access these old drives using my Win7 system. The attached HDDs were automatically detected by the BIOS

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I wanted my old drives to both be running as "Slaves." After reading the spec sheets for the drives, I concluded that my Seagate Barracuda 200 GB ST3200822A drive should have no jumpers (correct conclusion) and that my WD 320 GB WD3200AAJB drive should have a jumper cross pins 4 and 9 (incorrect conclusion). With this configuration, the system did not recognize the WD drive. The WD drive was recognized after I removed the jumper. Note that the included IDE cable was too short for my purpose. I purchased a 24" cable separately.

My build components are as follows:
Antec Gaming Series One black steel case
GIGABYTE GA-Z87X-UD3H motherboard
Intel Core i7-4771 Haswell 3.5GHz LGA 1150 processor
Dynatron K17 92mm CPU cooler
