I have an old desktop PC with only IDE interfaces for connecting a hard disk. I want to change the old hard disk and I'm thinking to get an SSD (I don't need a lot of space). I know that to take full advantage of the SSD speed you need a SATA interface, but still I think the performance will be better than the old disk.
I can see there are a few SSDs in the market with IDE interface. However, I noticed that on most of them, there is no connector for power (as I can see from the photos). Is this normal? or is it because power can be delivered via the IDE cable?
