4 out of 5 eggsworks well

Pros: Allows repurposing of some old IDE drives in my old HTPC for new motherboards that can only have 2 PATA devices. Ubuntu 9.04 had no issues seeing the drives when connected using this adapter. Can recognize with bios on ECS G43T-M which I'm using for a new HTPC build.

Cons: I found that the combination of this card with a 300GB PATA WDC bumped up the boot time by about 10 seconds. A 250GP PATA Maxtor drive did not have this issue nor did an IDE DVDRW.

Other Thoughts: There seems to be a few instances in the reviews where people have said this doesn't work with certain drives. It did work for me but it increased the boot time significantly. I ended up switching my devices around and have both IDE hard drives on the actual PATA controller instead of using this adapter. I'm currently using an 8GB compact flash card and a CF->IDE adapter as a cheap alternative to a flash hard drive. Currently, it boots from power button push to loaded XBMC in 35 seconds.

System config:
Intel Pentium E5200 Dual Core
ECS G43T-M microATX motherboard
2x2Gb OCZ DDR2

1 out of 5 eggsDid not work with WD 320GB IDE

Pros: Great idea to keep older IDE drives when upgrading systems/mobos.

Cons: I could not get this to work with a Western Digital 320GB with three partitions. I read all the reviews and tried the drive without jumpers and as master. pressed the reset button after powerup & before bios scanned for IDE drives.

Other Thoughts: I didn't want to operate the IDE HD with the PATA DVD-rw drive, but had to to get the drive recognized. So far, I haven't noticed much if any downgrading in access/transfer speed.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: None

Cons: DOA

Other Thoughts: Seemed like a good adapter/product, but when I got it and plugged it all in, it didn't work. I didn't care to RMA it since it would cost to ship it back which seemed pointless. So I just went and bought a different brand.

4 out of 5 eggsYEP

Pros: works as specified, have owned 4 of them

currently using one in a slim case project converting the sata to 2.5 ide so i need another one!
got to put these old computers to use with these 3.5gb laptop drives

Cons: note to those who complain it does not work
you need to set the drive jumper pins to master, since the sata drives dont have slave/master/cable select options (only 3.0, 1.5, and NAQ pins) and the sata interface doesnt understand the pin configuration of an IDE drive -- just set it to master

Other Thoughts: prices of these have gone down a little since i last looked

next we'll need a new bailout because the financial industry sets a new standard which doesnt comply with the old one...

5 out of 5 eggsWorks FIne

Pros: I am able to read/record with my DVD burner.

Cons: Confusing to set up.

Other Thoughts: I had to jumper the DVD burner to master, and connect power to both the drive and the adapter. Additionally, I had to plug the SATA cable into a SATA connector that was listed as "master" in the BIOS of the Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3R motherboard.

1 out of 5 eggsJUNK

Pros: Can't think of anything, other than it came with a SATA cable.

Cons: Never Worked, tried all comments listed here, it's just junk, and not worth returning for replacement. MORE Junk for you to waste money on.

Other Thoughts: Pull this item, don't sell anymore to customers

1 out of 5 eggsChinese Junk

Pros: I WASTED less than $20 for this useless garbage.

Cons: Never worked. I bought 2 of them (not from Newegg) and both are worthless.

I couldn't rate this product a ZERO, which is what it deserves.

Other Thoughts: I replaced the (older) motherboard in one of my computers, and all HDDs and the DVD/CD burner used IDE cables. The new board had only one IDE header for connecting 2 devices, and I needed to connect 4. This POJ adapter appeared to be the solution. WRONG!! No combination of jumper locations and even removing the jumpers altogether solved the problem. The original Molex power connections were used as well as the miniature 4-pin connection. The computer runs fine with one HDD and one optical drive connected via an IDE cable. When either or both adapters were installed, the computer wouldn't POST, Boot, Scoot, or Shoot.

Both adapters went into the garbage this morning.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks fine!

Pros: Low price, fast shipping.

Cons: Took some skill to fit inside my new tower.

Other Thoughts: I bought 2 of these to put my 2 IDE drives into my new desktop which uses SATA. At first thought they didn't work but realized I also needed power going to the IDE drives, as well as power going to these connectors. Everything worked on first boot. Just remember to remove the jumpers from the IDE drives.

1 out of 5 eggsDoesn't work.

Pros: Newegg's low prices and fast shipping.

Cons: I bought 2 of these to put my 2 IDE drives into my brand new computer. The result was the computer took longer to boot up, and the drives weren't recognized. They don't show up in My Computer or BIOS at all.

Other Thoughts: What's the point of having a 4-pin power connector when all but one of the power connectors in new computers are the longer SATA ones?
