Century Releases HDD IDE->SATA Converter
PATA to SATA converters have existed since the day SATA hard drives first hit the market, to provide backward compatibility with older motherboards that were left behind. What makes Century’s CROO-IS converter special, though, is that it’s the exact width and height of a 3.5-inch hard drive, so will fit in any 3.5-inch bay (that has enough clearance on the length axis) such as Century’s own stage racks, or other hot-swappable external (or internal!) hard drive enclosures. Even works with 2.5-inch drives.
