Pros: I needed an adator to get an express card to fit in my Dell Laptop PCMIA Slot. I had no problems with the order process from Sewell. The adator I received was crafted with quality and worked with my new express card without any problems.

Cons: NA

Pros: Easy to install.

Cons: Not for all devices and this was not stated on the website.

Other: I wanted to use this for a wireless N adapter card but upon receipt of the adapter, I saw on the package that it was not to be used for certain types of applications (modems, ethernet, and things of that nature - communications?). Needless to say, the wireless card I wanted to use it with did not fire up. I was able to return the Express card and exchange it for a regular PCMCIA version. I tried this adapter in the event that a future machine would have an Express slot and I could connect the card directly to the machine. Oh well. I imagine it works well for other things.

Question:

I wonder if your product supports the SxS memory card by Sony (see link below). I have a Thinkpad T30 with a cardbus slot.


Answer:

From the information posted online it would appear that the card is based on PCI-Express technology. If this information is correct it will not work at all. These adapters only work with USB based expresscard technology.
