CF slot with mechanical eject?

So I'm doing a 1200 mod and would like to add a nice mechanical ejecting CF slot to the side of it. I'd like something that stays pretty flush with the case when the card is in (with extruding button) and is totally flush with the case (no extruding button) when the card is not in.

Have you guys found any nice ways to do this?

I guess you need something like this:





I haven't looked where you can get the exact adapter but you can check out the following as well:

Cheers for the help!

@mfilos: are those adapters pretty much all supporting the various PIO/UDMA modes (that logic is in the actual CF card, is it not?)

Haven't tried them out mate but I'm pretty sure they'll work just fine
After all... CF is an 1:1 compatible with IDE interface without no chip interfering. Every El'Cheapo adapter that I tried from eBay worked just fine so I don't see any reason why these won't work

SD is another thing though. Since there are chips that interfering you loose a bit of speed due to the conversion of interface but it works most of times.
I tried an cheap adapter from eBay some time ago and it works. AFAIK these adapters tend to have issues with SDs > 2GB but I can be wrong about it.

Imho, just go with the tested and fast CF solution unless you wanna change often and can't afford CF cards cost.
