Marketing and accounting trump engineering

Pros: 1. Passes all SMART data to smartmontools: ID, Data and error/self-test logs

2. Reaches UDMA 5, 80.5 MB/s sustained transfer (capped) on Intel D915GAV (HD Tach)

3. Keyed blue plastic shroud surrounding IDE header pins

4. Mixed 2 HDDs on same IDE channel cable works.

Cons: 1. Drops to UDMA 2, 31.8 MB/s sustaines on Tyan MPX S2466N-4M server motherboard

2. IDE keyed header pins/shroud is wrong orientation 180 degrees

3. No cables supplied, big shelf package instead.

Overall Review: As with others in this category of CCBAs -- passes SMART data to smartmontools, transfer rate deops from UDMA 5 (100 MB/s) to UDMA 2 (33 MB/s) with conservative server host. Demerit for wrong orientation of IDE header pins. Mystery chipset (SIIG did not reply to inquiry). Overpackaged. Overpriced at $22 for average functionality.

Overall judgment: marketing and accounting trump engineering.

Perfect!

Pros: These are the same dimensions as the hard drive and fit nicely, unlike all the other brands out there that are large and/or stick out from the drive. There is a foam piece on the back to prevent a short. Master/Slave jumper is included. Works as expected.

Cons: No IDE cable included.

Overall Review: I bought 5 of these and I am using 4 in an IDE Raid setup in an old server. Large SATA drives are cheaper and easier to find. Helped me turn the old server in to a cheap, high capacity NAS. I'm using FreeNAS and everything works great.

Terrible

Pros: Fast return response from Newegg.

Cons: I purchased this in order to use an SATA DVD-R drive on my ancient Gateway desktop, and all that worked was the disk tray. My computer did not recognize the drive, and it took SIIG over a week to respond to my email, which by that time the adapter was en route to Newegg for a refund. Their option was to try it in a different system (only have one) or return it, I took the latter.

Overall Review: May work for Hard drives only, don't waste money using on disk drives.
