This review is from: SYBA SD-ADA50016 SATA to IDE (IDE to SATA) Bi-Directional Adapter

Pros:

Adapter works as it's supposed to with no problems.

Cons:

Only reason I'm giving this 3 stars is because of the lack of instruction in the manual. Had gotten the item and had trouble with my computer recognizing the drive. Didn't come to mind that the jumper on the drive had to be set to cable select or that there were switches on the actual adapter until after I had gotten a new SATA HDD (had a "D'oh!" moment).

Other Thoughts:

Would be loads better with a more complete manual, especially for those who aren't as versed in computer hardware.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

We apologize about the state of the current manual.

Please note that our website does list troubleshooting options for this device on how to install and cinfigure the adapter.

Note that a new manual for this device will be posted and, available on our website this month.

For any other help please contact Syba support.

-Regards SYBA CST 03202014
