Pros: I like Newegg, and I like Thermaltake products. This one lives up to Thermaltake's high standards, and it has already helped me recover files from a failed (virus) hard drive.
Cons: My only "con" comment is the delivery was unacceptably slow, taking almost two weeks. It was shipped by FedEx/SmartPost. Newegg is known for quick deliveries, so this was a surprise.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: BYTECC IDE Adaptor IDE to SATA Converter For Drive
Pros: I had tried another (cheaper) adapter in order to add a new SATA hard drive to my older desktop computer. Could not get it to work under any configuration. I installed this one from Bytecc, and the computer immediately recognized both drives. The new drive is now my master boot drive, connected through the adapter.
Cons: None. I'm very pleased with it. You do need a space of about two inches off the back of a drive for this adapter to fit.
Other Thoughts: As a result of my experience with the other adapter, I made sure the new drive was the only drive on the ribbon cable and that my old drive was set as slave on a different ribbon cable. This configuration worked for me with the Bytecc adapter.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Cool looking; seems to be working now.
Cons: Like the other reviews, I had nothing but trouble keeping the adapter connected to my LAN. I did install the driver, which it does in a goofy way--half installation program and then finished by Windows. If I had it to do again, I wouldn't even open the software CD. I did try to download a newer driver from Level1.com, but could never got it to work. As suggested, I found the Marvell Topdog 802.11n driver. Windows didn't want to install it because it has the same name as the Level One driver and is older. So remove the former driver and then do an "Add Hardware". The Level One Wireless Utility would also run and then it wouldn't.
Other Thoughts: Based on this experience, I would be concerned about Level One products. However, I will continue to be a loyal Newegg customer!READ FULL REVIEW
