Customer Reviews

It worked flawlessly with a 64 GB SD card.
JL
The laptop can't boot from its USB-1 slot, and has only the 8GB drive and CD-ROM as bootable devices.
Unimon
Was not recognized by my IBM Thinkpad X40 as a drive so it is worthless to me.

I bought this to replace a 340MB drive in an older laptop running DOS 6.2 and WIN95.

It works great. Bootable. Fast. Makes great SSD for older machines.

I recommend the SanDisk "ULTRA" series SD card for their speed and advanced "wear leveling", as the File Allocation Table area takes a lot of beating. The "Ultra" is the one with the lifetime warranty. While doing research on this, I had a lot of emailing to SanDisk over this issue. They do not want to get into the business of supporting their product used in this way, but they did share that their product could handle the FAT wear issue. They did not want to walk me through all the partitioning and formatting issues for retrofit to ancient hardware. I could certainly understand.

I do not mean to shill by outright recommending a vendor. I have - for a long time - been familiar with write endurance issues associated with EEPROM technologies. Knowing this limitation, I have been very cautious about designing EEPROM based technology into anything that requires substantial rewriting. I saw an ad announcing SanDisk's new ULTRA technology, and it kindled a volley of email between me and SanDisk. I know the intense rewriting that goes on in a computer disk memory, and did not want to needlessly fry EEPROM chips trying to use them this way. SanDisk tells me their new wear-leveling algorithms reroute heavily used areas in such a way as to evenly cycle all the memory cells of the device. When I look at the wear distributed across 8 gigabytes, well, I won't live long enough to wear it out. I do not know about others' technologies, but I do know if the File Allocation Table becomes corrupted, the rest of the memory becomes inaccessible, as the OS has no idea where the data is.

This one works with certain scenarios, but unlike the Sintechi chipset variant of adapter sold, this one DOES work with a USB 2.0 combo SATA/IDE adapter identical to what Walmart sells as a Link Depot. It worked with an IDE/USB adapter that was embedded in a Maxtor OneTouch external 2.5" enclosure. The SD slot is not spring loaded, meaning you have to take some tweezers or long fingernails to liberate the SD card from the socket.

It does not work with my ThinkPad X41t but does work with a Compaq TC1100.

This XHH sold brand is considerably slower than the counterpart having a Sintechi chipset. This one turned out pokey benchmarks.
9.3MB/sec on reads and writes.

The other brand using the Sintechi chipset:
21.3MB/sec on writes.
25.3MB/sec on reads.

This purchase was intended as a cheap way to convert an old Windows 2000 era laptop still functioning well, to a solid-state, always-on monitoring station (without worry of the old 8GB drive killing itself). The laptop can't boot from its USB-1 slot, and has only the 8GB drive and CD-ROM as bootable devices. Current price for an 8GB SD card is around $10, and with this device at $12, a total cost of slightly more than $22 for a solid-state disk replacement was attractive. Alas, it has not yet worked out that way. So far, we have not gotten the device to boot on the target machine. Tests with a USB converter showed that it functioned well at USB2 speeds. Using a Class 10 vs. standard 8GB SD card made no difference at USB2 speed.

Cons:

(1) The male connector is not keyed. We took the pin-socket plug out of the USB adapter assembly, and the target laptop didn't care, however, you might need to snip a pin (carefully!) for this device to work with your intended hardware.

(2) The SD slot on the device is on the opposite side of the (3) led indicators (which are very useful indicators that the device is properly attached and functioning). The board is designed to be oriented so the status lights are up (visible for testing) in the average laptop disk orientation, so the card must be removed (from the disk drive connector) to change SD cards. Don't get this for a laptop application if you want to change SD cards frequently.

(3) There is absolutely no documentation provided, and none on the manufacturer/distributor's website either.

Pros:

(1) It works for data storage with a USB2 connector. But it's relatively useless in that application, as commodity USB adapters are better and cheaper.

The physical layout of this adapter makes it difficult to use in most applications. The card gets inserted sideways to the connectors, on the bottom of the board. If the adapter isn't just floating in open space, it's very difficult to ever change cards. The main application for this is to just create a main drive with the operating system installed on it, where the card will never need to be removed.

The other lack-of-flexibility issue I had was that there's no master/slave jumper. So unless this is being used as the boot drive, skip it.

Quality of workmanship seemed good, and the low physical profile seemed to be workable.

I used this along with an old SD card to replace a defective hard drive in a very old laptop. Everything works fine and the machine is now back online running Linux like a champ.

Just keep in mind that the IDE interface is SLOW... don't blame the SD card.
