Still kickin' after 2.5 years
Pins were bent when I got it, had to straighten them when I installed it.
Just thought I would update my review from 1/29/2009. I still use my Acer Aspire at least weekly but it's getting a little long in the tooth.
OEM 4200 RPM disk took about 4.5 minutes to boot XP MCE with Acer bloatware.
This adapter with a 300x CF card took just shy of 1 minute to boot XP MCE optimized for fast booting.
This Adapter with 300x CF card takes 35 seconds flat to go from full off to searching google with Ubuntu 10.04 (including the time it takes me to enter my logon password)!
