Brando USB 3.0-SATA Adpater Revealed New Brando Adapater Turns SATA HDDs Into External USB 3.0 HDDs

Those interested in USB 3.0-powered external hard drives may be put off
by the price, for example, the Buffalo HD-HU3 costs over $200. For those
people, Brando has introduced a low-cost USB 3.0 to SATA adapter dongle
that will let you turn any SATA hard drive into a cheap USB 3.0 powered
external drive.
The aptly-named Unitek USB 3.0 to SATAย adapterย (shouldn't it be SATA
to USB?) isย compatibleย with both SATA 3.0 and SATA 1.5 hard drives,
and canย theoreticallyย transfer data at the full 'SuperSpeed' of USB
3.0. Brando promises that this adapter can transfer data in 1/4th the
time of a USB 2.0 adapter. Of course, your computer must be set up for
USB 3.0.
Brando also sells a IDE-to-SATA adapater, so you could use an IDE drive
with USB 3.0.ย For those interested, the USB 3.0-SATA adapter will cost
your $48 and is now shipping, and it'sย compatibleย with Windows 7, XP,
Vista and Linux, and can handle HDDs up to 2TB in size.
