Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect upgrade for an old Gateway Laptop MX8550GB Previously fitted with a 250GB WD2500BEVE EIDE drive which eventually crashed with hard errors. Not worth saving the laptop without a larger drive but no prospect of a larger PATA drive. Googling and some lateral thinking revealed this Lycom adapter on the Scan site so with some trepidation I paired it with a 500GB Crucial MX200, Internal mSATA SSD and took the plunge. It took seconds to fit the SSD to the adaptor and plug the adaptor in place of the original 44 pin EIDE drive. The laptop has successfully run for a month now, still on WinXP SP3 and noticeably faster than with the mechanical disc. No problems whatever, and the wife's thrilled with her rejuvenated laptop on steroids ;-) Perfect upgrade. Scan's order processing plus status emails were impeccable BTW. 30 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ideal to upgrade an old laptop to SSD This gadget is just what you need to upgrade an old laptop to SSD. Just add an mSATA ssd, to it, and fit it back in the laptop where the old mechanical hard drive was. You won't get the high sustained data transfer rates that SSDs are normally capable of, but you will still get blazing fast random access times, and high IOPs, so your laptop will feel much more snappy. Also as you can now get mSATA SSDs in much larger sizes than PATA 2.5 inch mechanical hard drives, you can get a capacity increase as well. One gotcha to be aware of, is the master/slave jumper. If you put this in a USB enclosure to copy your files, then make sure the jumper is removed, as otherwise your enclosure might not recognise the drive. Mine did not, and I thought it was faulty until I realised. 23 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by An elegant solution to replace an ide hard drive I used this device in a 2004 Dell inspiron 5150 which was showing signs of imminent failure, ie loads of clicking noises. As i quickly found out 2.5 ide laptop drives are very hard to find new. I incorporated a 60 gigabite Msata ssd with the Lycom and now have a quiet fast laptop. Its just as shame the ide interface limits the ssd max speed. 03 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exactly whatI I needed The Scan website is very easy to navigate and search. It's extensive in the components it stocks and descriptions are good. Thanks 08 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ideal for laptop upgrade I used this with an mSATA drive. All worked faultlessly. The laptop is silent apart from when the fan kicks in (less frequently than previously) and there is an increase in speed. 24 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by New life for old laptop Used in: Dell Latitude D600, Pentuim M 1.7 GHz, 2GB RAM. The number of bad blocks on my laptop's current hard drive started to grow. I thought of a replacement - and found out that nobody is producing 2.5" IDE HDDs any more, they are all SATA nowadays. IDE to SATA converters take space, excluding their use in 2.5" slot. This converter is a real solution to this problem. Get an mSATA SSD, put it in, change your old HDD with this construction - and your laptop is working again. One thing to remember is trim command for your SSD. WinXP doesn't have it, so you'll need to upgrade to Win7 (tried Ubuntu, but it doesn't have a proper driver for my video card (ATI Mobility Radeon 9000)). And once upgraded to Win7, install the optional update http://support.microsoft.com/kb/982018. Without it, the laptop hangs on resume from sleep (hibernate is OK, but I wouldn't recommend hibernating to SSD). Overall - excellent upgrade! My laptop's life is prolonged for at least two years. Win7 boot time is now around 50-60 seconds, shutdown/hibernate/hibernate-resume is around 10 seconds. It doesn't really matter which mSATA SSD you will use with this adapter (I've used SanDisk X110 128GB), as the speed of modern SSDs is 3-5 times higher than the maximum speed of IDE interface. 20 February 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by New lease of life for old laptop. Bought this item after seeing a topic about a T43 on a Thinkpad forum. Assumed it would also work with an X31, and can now confirm that it does. Makes it easy to replace an old IDE spinning disk and provides a noticeable speed boost. 08 June 2014

In the description three maximum sizes are mentioned, 188gb being the largest and a 48bit LBA also mentioned which implies drives which can be terabytes in size. I would like to consider using this adapter with a 256gb Msata drive. Will it work with a 256gb drive or is 128gb the largest suitable?
