2.5" SATA Hard Drive to IDE 44 Pin Adapter  for Laptop Drives

2.5" SATA Hard Drive to IDE 44 Pin Adapter for Laptop Drives

Product Review (submitted on November 8, 2011):

The 2.5" SATA Hard Drive to IDE 44 Pin Adapter was just small enough for the purpose I needed it for. In fact, it is the smallest SATA to 44 pin IDE converter that I've found. The converter board fit into an older home automation touchscreen that maintenance was being conducted on. I was able to transfer the old touchscreen's OS, and settings over from its failing IDE hard disk to a newer SATA, then use this converter board, to upgrade the touchscreen with SATA capability. This is important, given that IDE hard disks are getting harder to find, and are going obsolete. The converter board worked flawlessly. The only quibble I have, is that it did slow down disk access some in the SATA to IDE conversion, but from an operating standpoint, the end user won't notice the difference. The SATA to 44 pin IDE converter does what I need it to do.
