StarTech PATA2SATA3 Bi-Directional SATA/IDE Conver Product Details

StarTech PATA2SATA3 Bi-Directional SATA/IDE Converter
The StarTech PATA2SATA3 Bi-Directional SATA/IDE Converter is a bi-directional SATA IDE adapter/converter that lets you connect a Serial ATA drive to a legacy IDE port, or an IDE drive to a SATA motherboard port. The StarTech PATA2SATA3 Bi-Directional SATA/IDE Converter is a cost-effective solution for upgrading existing IDE systems to support SATA hard drives or optical drives, the SATA/IDE adapter eliminates the expense of having to purchase a controller card while saving the expansion slot that would be required for card installation. In addition to SATA hard drive installation, the StarTech PATA2SATA3 Bi-Directional SATA/IDE Converter can be reversed in order to connect older IDE drives to a newer SATA-enabled motherboard, making it easy to retrieve old files from a previous system.
