      Works like it should for what I want.

      Overall: 4 out of 5

      It actually is inside a flimsy plastic case and is not just an exposed circuit board. So that is kind of good. I had success using it to connect a SATA Hard Drive to an older Firewire IDE bridge board. I was also made sure to set my HD to 1.5 GBps setting.(jumper on HD) The adapter only supports that and not the higher SATA speeds.

      Overpromised and underdelivered

      Overall: 1 out of 5

      Having powered both the board and the drive by separate feed, I found this product did not work as an IDE to SATA converter. No jumper setting on the IDE CDROM drive, not Cable Select, not Master nor Slave had any positive effect. Both SATA connectors were tried, too. In one case, the BIOS would 'hang' for a while and not recognize the drive. In the other case, the BIOS would complain right away there was nothing active on the SATA port. For what I needed this product to do, it sadly did not deliver.

      I only had one IDE slot on my motherboard, so this was purchased to free up my IDE slot. So, I was trying to make my IDE hdd appear as a SATA drive. The led light comes on (on the small converter board),but no joy on boot up when attached to the SATA connector. Great idea if it worked.
