4 out of 5 eggs Does What it Says 01/29/2009

This review is from: SYBA SY-IDE2CF-NB25 Ultra IDE to Compact Flash Adapter

Pros:

Inexpensive
Works as advertised

Cons:

Slightly bent pins, not a huge deal.

Other Thoughts:

A few of the IDE pins were a little bent, made it slightly hard to install hence the 4 eggs instead of 5.

I paired this with a 16GB 300x Transcend card and used it to replace the OEM 4200 RPM HD in my ACER Aspire 5102.

I get 48.33MB/sec peak reads from that setup.

If I had it to do over I would use a 266x card to save some cash... Just a tip for those of you about to venture into the world of DIY SSD.

Also please disable prefetch and pagefile (virtual memory) if you intend to make a DIY SSD, it will make your CF Card live a MUCH longer life.
