Product Details


This IDE to SATA Drive Adapter Kit offers a simple way to install Serial ATA hard drives using an available IDE port - a cost-effective solution for using newer SATA drives on a legacy computer or a computer with all SATA connections already in use.

This dual channel bridge lets you connect two high-speed SATA drives without the cost and effort of upgrading your IDE (Parallel ATA) motherboard, while minimizing the space required for IDE cable connections - helping to improve airflow within the case which in turn helps to optimize system performance.

Plus, the IDE to SATA Drive Motherboard Adapter includes a power connector and SATA data cables, to ensure the upgrade to SATA is easy.
