WTB: Ultrabay SATA HDD Adapter

#1 Post by Behemot » Sat Mar 09, 2019 11:12 am

Looking after few of these adapters:

Marketing PN: 40Y8725
FRU PN: 26R9246
other P/N: 26R9247

They have that stupid proprietary UATA connector and convert that to SATA via built-in Marvell chip.

I reside in CZ, but colleague of mine visits US couple times a year so it is possible to ship there for cheap and he'll take it with.

Actually its called JAE Slim-IDE and its not proprietary at all.

The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.

He was referring to the Ultrabay Enhanced/Slim drives, though. Those Ultrabay drives do not utilize the JAE KX15-50KLD connector, but some strange proprietary connector.

Have a look at this image; notice the differences? The proprietary connector is on the top, and the JAE KX15-50KLD connector is on the bottom.

I thought they were the same connector all this time because they looked really similar. You learn something new everyday.
