The Vantec CB-ISATAU2 SATAIDE to USB 2.0 Adapter helps you to transfer data wherever you need it. Get it off of an older hard drive and onto your new computer. Simply remove the old drive, plug the SATA IDE adapter into it and use the USB end on your current PC. Depending on the connection you have, you can achieve transfer rates of up to 480Mbps to get your data moved quickly. This SATA to USB adapter is compatible with both USB 1.1 and USB 2.0. You can also use the external hard drive as portable storage that's more secure than wireless transfer. The hot-swappable design means that you can plug it into a computer without having to first turn off the system, which saves you lots of time. The device can handle a maximum hard rive space of up to 2TB, which means hundreds of hours of HD video. The connector is compact for easy storage.
