Maybe that's a good alternate name for DealExtreme.com. They have a
lot of inexpensive stuff. Mailed from Hong Kong (can easily take two

This says nothing about DMA.
One comment suggest that this one is built better:
A comment claims slow transfers with this, but a reply points out that
"no processing is performed by the adapter".
What is needed for DMA? Is it at all a function of the adaptor? DX
makes a point of mentioning it in describing this adaptor (which isn't
the right gender anyway):
DX also has SD to IDE adaptors. That is a less-trivial operation and
so they are more expensive. I imagine that a fast SD is slower than a
fast CF. SD is a lot cheaper than CF.
I happened to throw in these with my last DX order but haven't even
opened the wrapper on them. So I don't know if they are any good:
The silk-screening on 711 mentions DMA.
