SYBA SD-ADA50016 SATA II to IDE ATA133 Bi-directional Adapter
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Works like a champ 03/03/2015

This review is from: SYBA SD-ADA50016 SATA II to IDE ATA133 Bi-directional Adapter

Pros: Needed a legacy IDE drive to keep old HP Desktop alive after HDD failure. The newer formatted SATA drives wouldn't work, kept getting failed Win Vista install repeatedly.

Searching Google, I learned that there was a changeover in HDD format to deal with larger media files and the PC... that may be causing my problem.

Picked up this device and used an old IDE drive to SATA. Problem solved, PC works fine. --- STILL ALIVE!!!

Cons: none.

Thermaltake V3 Black Edition VL80001W2Z Black SECC / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Plenty of room for components
Inexpensive after rebate
Good air flow

Cons: Thin gauge metal
Need screwdriver to remove panels and components
Front panel is cumbersome to remove
Drive Bay Panels aren't easy to remove / replace

Other Thoughts: After using Antec 300 cases for a few builds,I must've been spoiled. Antec had thicker metal, toolless drive swaps, and panel removal, basically solid around in comparison.

If you're building a PC not to touch it again as ... it's fine. But if you add / remove component and like to tinker inside the box from time to time, this case is a bummer.

I wish I paid $ 40 or $ 50 bucks for another Antec over the V3 I picked up for $25 locally after rebate
