    SATA to IDE Host Converter

    Serial ATA (SATA) to IDE Host Converter is a small adapter/converter, which allows users to connect any Next Generation SATA hard disk drive to the IDE/EIDE (PATA) controller. This converter allows users to take advantage of the newer SATA hard drives, low thermal, easy airflow and high performance while using the standard IDE/EIDE (PATA) controller (usually on the motherboards).
