NT USB 2.0 drive adapter

NewerTech has begun shippping its USB 2.0 Universal Drive Adapter, which promises easier data transfer from unplugged computer hardware. It connects to 2.5-, 3.5- or 5.25-inch hard drives, and can also connect to optical drives, whether they use ATA, ATAPI, IDE or Serial ATA ports. Once the USB link is established, users can simply copy files off the external drive at speeds of up to 480Mbps. Virtually all major brands are said to be supported, from Fujitsu and IBM through to TEAC and Toshiba. Macs using the adapter must be running Mac OS 9.2 or later, including Mac OS X. Other World Computing is offering the drive adapter for $25.

    Hmm

    Odd this is here now, since I ordered one and received it last week.

    BTW, works great, although a little slow (what you get for USB 2.0). But for $25, couldn't beat the price.

    would it help me?

    I've got a 1-terabyte LaCie drive that suddenly gave me the ka-LACK ka-LACK ka-LACK death dance and no longer mounts at all. Since it is composed of 4 separate disks combined via proprietary firmware, I was wondering if I could somehow disconnect the individual disks and read whatever could be found on the ones that work. Would this product allow me to do that?? Thanks for any info/advice.
