Okay, granted this isn’t the latest and greatest in USB technology posts, but it does hold value. The SATA to USB adapter is a great adapter tool to have for any half/computer savvy user. With the increased popularity of eSATA hard drives, it’s very likely you, or someone you know (and support) will upgrade their hard-drive via a new SATA drive. To that end, many older computers don’t have SATA support – so what do you do? Dig into your computer bag and pull out that SATA to USB adapter you read about on GetUSB … is what you do. This handy adapter will convert any SATA to the #1 most popular connectivity method, USB. So without buying a SATA controller card, installing the software and all that BS – just use the adapter.
