Customer Reviews of Addonics ExpressCard CardBus Adapter
I was a little worried about ordering this item as I was not sure if it would really work or not. Recently I got a new laptop and it hand a PC Express card slot though my old wireless card is a PCMCIA card and I did not want to have to buy a new one. I ordered this adapter and could not be happier, the adapter requires no drivers. All I had to do was install the software for my PCMCIA card and I was ready to go. Easy, Easy, Easy!!! The only downside it how far the card sticks out of the ocmputer once it is inserted though I am willing to give up a little style to have something that works.
Great affordable adapter1/26/2009
Very easy to set up and use. Installed on first try. Good inexpensive adapter.
Works great with AirCard12/12/2008
Purchased this adapter to use with PCMCIA aircard. It took a couple of tries to get plug and play to see the card, but all worked well after that. The adapter works on my Mac Book Pro without issue. Using this adapter does make the card extend far from the computer. There's no way to minimize this form factor.
The right concept, flimsy construction9/7/2008
The folks at Addonics have created the perfect design for this adapter but manufactured it in plastic that is flimsy. To make it sturdier wouldn't appreciably alter the cost to manufacture it or the price to me. I'd happily pay an extra $5-10 if it would hold up in the television production environment in which I work. The other detriment is that this adapter doesn't work on the Mac platform. It should. It's fast. It works well although if you mount and unmount more than three P2 cards it disables the wireless connection in my MacBook Pro (running WinXP Pro).
PCMIA to Express Card Adapter5/30/2008
This product is perfect to use when you have old PCMIA cards such as Aircards that need to adapt to your new laptop that only has an ExpressCard slot. This product worked great right out of the box with Vista.
