I've looking for a PS2 Hdd adapter with network abilities.. I've read all the forum posts of how the RJ45 jack has been missing or if its present how its not functional etc..
I've been talking to this ebay seller of SATA PS2 adapters with network interface..
Heres the auction - http://www.ebay.com/itm/ws/eBayISAPI...:X:RTQ:US:1123
Seller has shown me its got a RJ45 socket inplace.. but has reassured me that supplier says that network adapter part of it is fully functional.. (Picture on auction is wrong, they sent me real photos of the adapter ouside not inside yet. ).
I would probably prefer a SATA version of the adapter but want to make sure i have a working network interface..
Would this ebay item be safe to buy or are all chinese clone adapters not to be trusted for networking..
PATA is hard to get in 1GB hence better to go SATA I want to achieve 1TB hard inside.
Theres a official 2nd hand Sony adapter for sale near me, but yeah thats PATA and have to hack it a bit to get SATA adapter to fit in there.. then theres the whole ball game and getting the right SATA adapter..
So all in all whats the likely hood of a random SATA adapter to have a fully functional network interface./ 0 or 50/50..
Also are chinese clone too much of a hassle to be worth it.. ie. games compatibility crashing etc..
Appreciate the help! Auction ends in 6 hours for the official one.
