KINGWIN ADP-06 SATA to IDE Bridge Board
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Won't work for me 07/24/2013

This review is from: KINGWIN ADP-06 SATA to IDE Bridge Board

Pros: At least it was not expensive.

Cons: Could not get this adapter to work with my 2005 Asus K8V-MV mobo and a Lite-on or Sony DVD-RW.

However, the Rosewill RC-A-SATA-IDE SATA to IDE Adapter works just fine ... even has M,S,C jumpers. It does write data a bit slower with the IDE interface.

Other Thoughts: My hobby is refurbishing discarded computers ... the old optical drives rarely working correctly ... there are no "new for sale" ide inteface optical drives ... so this type of adapter (and the added expense) is a necessity. I will be using the Rosewill product in the future.

Rosewill RCW-616 Laptop 2.5

4 out of 5 eggs Helpful explanation (hopefully) 10/28/2010

This review is from: Rosewill RCW-616 Laptop 2.5" to Desktop 3.5" IDE Hard Drive Adapter Converter

Pros: The little adapter did do the job. Mine was only semi-flimsy.

Cons: There are no instructions included.
I found the pins no easier to bend than any other IDE device pins. The 2.5" drive side is properly keyed - so the only chore is to look up the jumper setting to make it a slave.
The 40 pin ribbon side is the problem -- all pins are present -- and most cable have that blank so that a pin must be bent or clipped.
Here is the hopefully helpful part - I connected the 40 pin cable 180 degrees out -- the computer would start to boot and stop. I reversed the cable and all was well -- the drive showed up as a slave (I put it on the secondary IDE cable with the DVD/CD reader). I was then able to run an antivirus on the drive and delete viruses from the 2.5" drive. The reversed connection didn't seem to hurt anything.

Other Thoughts: I would suggest bending the pin out of the way rather than clipping it.

Case Logic Black 14

5 out of 5 eggs Just right for 14inch 10/21/2010

This review is from: Case Logic Black 14" Laptop Attaché Model ENA-114

Pros: A bit of a minimalist case. Fits a 14" laptop, power supply, and mouse with a little room to spare. Nicely padded. I wanted something like a protective "sleeve" with pocket for accessories ... not a portable office. I am buying another for a friend.

Cons: None ... unless you want a case to carry a lot of stuff.
