Default IDE HD to SATA Mobo Converter

I'm looking for (2) Vantec CB-IS100 IDE to SATA Converter specifically if anyone has one. My friend has one older hard drive and optical drive that are being moved into a new system. The new mobo won't take IDEs.

I need two, one for the hard drive as well as one for the optical drive.

You can get chinese knock-offs on ebay for a couple bucks each.

For the cost of an optical drive just get a new one. The adapter will likely cost just as much or within a few dollars. For the HDD get a USB adaptor, they are very cheap. If he plans on using an old IDE drive as a system drive (operating system) he will be sorely disappointed at his new computer no feeling very fast.
