This review is from: SYBA SD-ADA45006 2.5" IDE 44-Pin To Dual Compact Flash Adapter
It works. Seems decent bit faster than my old 7200rpm HD.
Old HD 27.8mb read / 17mb write.
SD card 53.9mb read / 16.8mb write.
Not completely quiet. I hear some power supply twitching noise while accessing sometimes.

Didn't benchmark past 16k on HD as speed didn't increase.
Didn't benchmark past 512k on SD card as speed didn't increase.
I read somewhere that it might be better to leave the FAT table to FAT32 as that is how the SD card's hardware was tweaked for & shipped as. This is why I didn't go to NTFS. I don't know how true this is, since you can read anything on the inet & not be true.
