G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9D-8GBRL
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Worked with no intervention. Fast. Tested it for a few days with Memtest86+ and with MemTest for Windows and it works as it should: perfectly with no errors.

Cons: None yet

Other Thoughts: I read over all the reviews first. Chose this one and am pleased.

StarTech PATA2SATA3 Bi-directional adapter converts IDE to SATA or SATA to IDE
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Versatile: plug an IDE (aka PATA) drive into your SATA mobo, or a SATA drive into your IDE mobo

Cons: For the latter (SATA into IDE mobo connector), it means only 1 drive instead of 2.

Other Thoughts: Wish it had an IDE gender changer so it could plug into an IDE connector on the cable, instead of having to remove the cable and plug into the mobo IDE connector, losing BOTH devices. If you have 2 HDs & 2 CD/DVDs, you'll need to decide which to keep, possibly rejumper or use HD & DVD on same cable, slowing HD down.
Also, remember that a SATA drive plugged into this device will be running at IDE (OK, UDMA at best) speeds, and an IDE plugged in here to a STA port, still can't go faster than IDE speeds (SATA II is 3Gbps, UDMA is rarely over 0.133Gbps)

Thermaltake BlacX 5G ST0019U ABS Plastic 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Very useful

Cons: Picky

Other Thoughts: I've tested it on several computers, home, school, and work. It usually works just fine. Why certain drives don't want to work in it is still unknown (only had it a month). Maybe I'll eventually have time to test why some drives don't seem to work & others do: if so I'll do another review.
I really like it because it is so convenient. I've had no trouble using it with USB 3 or USB 2 (obviously way slower). Wish it had both eSATA III & USB 3.
