Does the job!

SYBA SD-ADA40001 SATA II To Compact Flash Adapter
SYBA SD-ADA40001 SATA II To Compact Flash Adapter

Pros: Device works as intended. It even came with small double sided tape to secure it to the case or whatever you want to secure it to. Also was detected right away by FreeBSD 7.2...I'm using it in my FreeNAS box.

Cons: Would have been nice if the CF card didn't stick out the back, but thats really minor that it really doesn't warrant a -1 egg.

Overall Review: The device have two LEDs, a yellow and a red one. They are constantly on 24/7. But since the adapter is in the case (with no side window), I don't see it. Might want to consider it though.

Works with FreeBSD 7.2

Pros: Was detected right away by my Windows XP install when I needed to copy FreeNAS and it was detected by FreeBSD 7.2 without any changes.

Cons: No spinners?
