4 out of 5 eggs It works.. better than USB for booting! 10/30/2010

This review is from: SYBA SD-CF-2IDE-U Dual Ultra IDE to Compact Flash Adapter

Pros:

Using as a boot disk for FreeNAS is great!

Cons:

Easy to short out.. Oops! I originally had one of these secure to a spare motherboard standoff and worked great. I put in a new motherboard and just used the IDE ribbon cable to shield it. Well, I moved it while the system was on. Once the smoke comes out, you can't put it back in!

Other Thoughts:

These are a simple passthrough device. If your CF doesn't support higher ATA modes and DMA, it won't be supported.

My old MoBo would only support USB1.1 until the OS loads USB2.0 drivers so it took 5+ minutes to boot! This basically gives you a cheap SSD to boot from using much more reliable and universal ATA compared poor or random support of USB for boot devices.
