1 out of 5 eggs It just doesn't work 04/23/2009

This review is from: SYBA SY-IDE2CF-DU Dual Ultra IDE to 2x Compact Flash Adapter

Pros: It plugs directly in the motherboard. That's about it.

Cons: The IDE connector fits incredibly loose. The solder connections look like my first solder globs I made when I was 4 years old. Has a ton of "re-worked" spots, and they look even worse.
It would only think it saw the CF card if I had it on the slave side, but I was still unable to do anything with it as a disk, including formatting. In the BIOS, it shows up with garbage text as the disk name, making it look like a drive on it's last leg.

Other Thoughts: This card is so bad, it could give you cancer just looking at it. I should have gotten the hint from the previous reviews.
