Rated 1.3 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by didn't work Did not work at all. I knew from other reviews that the documentation was poor and that some had issues using it for optical drives but wanted it for a hard drive. It did nothing, did not show up in the BIOS and neither of the LEDs illuminated when powered. I'm not sure if they are supposed to light up as there are no instructions, as other reviews have mentioned, but I am assuming they were put there for some reason. I've not sent it back as by the time I've paid postage and taken the time to request the return and go to the post office it hardly seems worth it. Maybe I'm just being lazy but since I got an email asking for a review I thought I would share my experience and based on this I suggest finding an alternative. 24 March 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by No instructions and only works in some circumstances. I purchased two to allow me to use old PATA devices with my new SATA only motherboard. There were no instructions. After a bit of trial and error with the connections, I got the old hard drive working perfectly. However, I was unable to get the old DVD writer working at all. I thought one adapter might be faulty so swapped them around but the hard drive still worked and the DVD writer still didn't. Another point to note is that you will need both power to the device and power to the adapter so you might need to also buy a molex splitter. 07 January 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Couldn't get this to work! I wanted a solution for my old IDE DVD+-RW drive, as there was no IDE ports on my new Z87 motherboard. Despite trying every combination possible, including jumper settings on the DVD drive, the most I could get out of it was that the light came on, and the drive was not detected. 03 September 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Did not do as it said it would Used 2 modules in IDE mode to enable 4 SATA connections. Would only enable 1 SATA port on each module 07 August 2013
