Cf-ide adapter
This adapter would find its consumers among those who prefer "noiseless over performance" devices, who builds servers, or need some extra controllers for nas. I tried several adapters before i bought this one. The previous ones failed to boot from cf cards larger than 512 mb and demonstrated quite poor read/write performance. In some cases it could be ok since there are oses for servers which require just 200 mb or so and could be loaded directly into memory. However in most cases there is a need for cf cards over 2 gb and this is the case where syba sd-cf-ide-a ide to compact flash adapter comes to play. It supports variety of large cards. Works nicely with sandisk ultra 4 gb (30 mb/s) on my little server and never failed so far. Read/write performance is acceptable. Could be even better with faster cards (but it costs much more bucks!). Summing up, it a a very nice inexpensive device.

Great nas solution
I used this adapter with a 2gb compact flash card to use as the boot disk for my freenas box. Works great! Loaded freenas version 7 and got some additional use out of an old computer.

Ide to cf
This product worked fine.It booted linux fine but a little slow.If you are looking for speed you might trythe internal usb header to usb they are a bit faster.Just make sure your bios supports it.

Syba sd-cf-ede-a to compact flash adapter
The new compact flash implementing wear-leveling it makes this adapter a decent upgrade for older and newer computers. Quick boots and rapid file copys smokes usb flashdrives and dvd's. No wait for head movement allows fast file access using 233x or better. Only a ramdrive or ssd, 1 terabyte is quicker. A fine product.

Fully satisfied
Great product, robust and very fast. As well shipping was good. From states to europe was ahead of scheduled. The adapter works on a 24h, 7days power on based pc and is always ready to go.

Great for replacing hard drives on computers that won't take drives with a lot of storage space.
I used three of these in a windows 95 computer that won't recognize a drive bigger than around 13gb, and i wanted more storage space than the 1.61gb drive in the computer. You have to use cf cards that work as a fixed disk to be able to boot up the computer. I've had a front bracket made up for these, so i can swap between ms-dos 6.22, windows for workgroups 3.11, or windows 95, without opening up the case or multi booting..
By Becky Crawford
It does exactly what i hoped.
I now have an 8gb flash boot dirve for a little ubuntu system.I have ordered the direct plug in version for another project.Consider the mechanics of your installation when choosing which version.This works great, but mounting it is not a simple as i had hoped.Simply pluging it in to the ide header is a great solution.Of course, it is the only ide drive in these systems.I don't know how it will play with another (dvd/cd/?) drive on the cable.

Works in older systems
It's a good way to turn an old system into a quiet solid state system using older cf cards. Not as fast as today's ssd standards, but ide can't get up to that anyways.
By Olivia Koskela
