VANTEC NEXSTAR CBSATA-U3 SATA TO USB 3.0 ADAPTER INTRODUCTION
Knowing your way around a computer almost guarantees that you'll be called upon at some point to rescue a friend or family member from a computer disaster. This happened to me recently - I was given the task of retrieving files from a hard drive that came out of a dead laptop. Luckily, I had a USB hard drive dock on hand and it made the process quick and easy.
Hard drive docks are a useful tool but as I found out, they can be a bit awkward to carry in a laptop bag. I was left wishing that I had the functionality of the dock in a package that was easier to carry around. Vantec might have just what I'm looking for - a SATA to USB adapter that allows you to quickly access a 2.5” or 3.5” drives without any added bulk. It also features USB 3.0 for faster data transfers.
Let's see what this little adapter can offer, shall we?
