This review is from: VANTEC HDA-525P 3.5" to 5.25" Front Bay Converter Kit
Pros: Looks nice. Hard plastic rather than soft plastic.
Cons: Wouldn't fit in the 5.25" external drive bay of my Corsair Obsidian 750D case. The front panel was about One Sixteenth of an inch too wide. The front panel which is attached to the front of the enclosure rather than the enclosure being molded as a single unit was wider than the main unit. I ended up sanding off the excess using very fine grit sand paper on a sanding block.
It took about 30 minutes to complete the process (I had two adapters to fix).
Other Thoughts: Aside from the above, the front panel is rather fragile, it could be damaged easily if your not careful installing and removing the adapter.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: StarTech 1 Port PCI Express IDE Controller Adapter Card
Pros: Works with my internal IDE ZIP drive.
Other Thoughts: I had long ago given up on finding an adapter that would work with my Iomega Zip drive. Over a period of about a year, I tried 3 other adapters, 2 PCI slot based cards and 1 direct attach adapter. None worked with the ZIP drive, this one does.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Read & write speeds as advertised. Five YR warranty.Very elegant design, Small & very well constructed. I really like the fact that the case has etched on it important info, i.e. Model, capacity and USB spec. I have multiple drives from several vendors and it irritates me to have to insert a drive to determine the capacity when preparing to copy some data..
Cons: None at this time Having used Kingston memory off and on for many years, I don't expect reliability to be an issue.READ FULL REVIEW
