3 out of 5 eggs I am surprised ... 08/13/2011

This review is from: SYBA SY-IDE-SATAHD IDE to SATA Device Adapter

Pros: Does what it says so far. Now I have to test it in an embedded system that is somewhat picky.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: I am surprised someone said the interface and power connectors were on the wrong side? It is SATA on one and EIDE on the other side. With selection switch on the EIDE side where expected. Maybe they are looking for the opposite application usage?

Pros: Can't say. Does not work past boot.

Cons: On Mac Mini under Snow Leopard this memory does not work. Every possible power controller NVRAM etc. reset was done and the memory passes the initial memory test and as the login screen comes up the graphics get a strip at the top then fails to paint the rest of the page and the system locks up. It works under safe boot, so I assume there is some Mac OS X issue with the eeprom on the SO-DIMM having a 0 for a serial number and all spaces for the model type.

Other Thoughts: This memory did not comply with SODIMM DDR3 specs in a memory tester. I am guessing the timing parameters are forced longer on the Mac OS X safe boot and that this really is marginal at CAS 7 timings. The memory tester we have is a pass/fail device so no great diagnostics. We'll be returning it and seeing about Patriot or Kingston as a replacement. I rate this as defective. Apple is really picky about timing so it really does have to be compliant with the industry specifications.
