SATA meets CompactFlash

Now I know this isn't really that new, the addonics adapter has been around for a little while now, but do you get the feeling that some manufacturers are trying to make the IDE bell toll just a little early? It seems a little unnecessary, especially as most modern boards will happily support booting from USB media, and that USB2 is definately faster than CompactFlash is! It is true that CompactFlash will emulate an IDE hard disk, so a SATA to CompactFlash converter isn't that difficult - it's just a matter of putting a CompactFlash connector on the board instead of an IDE connector! Anyone want to find out how hotswappable the hot swap actually is?


More information? The SATA CF adapter can be found at Addonics
