I have very bad experiences with cheap adapters from Ebay.

An identical adapter as specified by you worked incorrectly with me, during my tests with WinHiip.
But I have very good experience with an adapter from Delock.
And I have installed this IDE/SATA adapter in the PS2 Network Adapter.
The network adapter with a modem is the best choice. He has a larger case and the IDE/SATA adapter fits in completely. But you have to remove the modem from the network adapter. But the LAN connection still works.
At the NA without a modem, it is necessary to mill a hole in the back of the cabinet or the IDE/SATA adapter will not fit inside.
A few months ago I have made a tutorial for both versions of the network adapter.
And note the tutorials on the use of cheap large 3.5' SATA hard drives.
For 2.5' SATA hard drives, there are other possibilities or adapters without the need to modify the network adapter.
In the same thread links have been posted for an IDE/SATA adapter, especially for 2.5' SATA hard drives.
But I do not know if someone already purchased and tested this adapter.
