5 out of 5 eggs Great little fix for my old HD 03/04/2012

This review is from: Vantec IDE to SATA Converter - Model CB-IS100

Pros:

Way cheaper than a new HD. This little guy let me use some old hard drives that I thought I was going to have to pitch. I set my HD jumpers to master and it worked like a charm. I think some of the folks who gave bad reviews may have just had bad drives... mine was an old seagate 120 GB drive that had been sitting in a bin for about 6 years. Now it is the master drive for a PC I'm donating.

Cons:

It fits in a little too loose, and the instructions are not 100% clear about the fact that you need to provide power to the unit as well as the drive... I wasn't sure if it was enough to connect the power to just one, but you do need that little extra power connector for both the drive and the unit... might be a challenge for smaller power supplies with fewer connectors.

Other Thoughts:

If you have an old drive you want to get working again in a SATA only mother board (more common these days), this little gadget will do the trick.
