Vantec Single Port SATA to IDE Converter - Model CB-SP100
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Wrong Product Title Description 06/11/2010

This review is from: Vantec Single Port SATA to IDE Converter - Model CB-SP100

Pros: This product works better as a IDE to Sata device. NOT a sata to ide... For Sata to IDE - you should get their two port unit; or the "StarTech IDE2SAT IDE" which converts a sata unit to an ide output...

The manufacturers are getting really loose with their descriptions... Anyway - the Vantec cb-sp100 works fine as a IDE to Sata unit. For example - I have a sata hd duplicator. (ByTecc). Needed to copy my wife's ide drive... Bought a sp100 - carefully cut off the side plastic of the connector; slightly bent up the molly power unit - and Voila! One Sata HD duplicator - which also now copies ide drives....

Cons: Too expensive for what you get. You can purchase the vantec cb-is100 and get a plastic encased unit... (But has the correct descript for what its doing...) They're all being made in china, with various companies brand names... and terrible descripts of the purpose of device.

Other Thoughts: This unit does work great as a ide to Sata. As a test - I took an ide drive; ran it thru this (convert to sata) then ran it thru a sata to usb converter - and everything worked just fine... But I purchased it to help make dup's of HD's without spending a ton...
