Brando offers USB 3.0 HDD connection solution

Brando has released its second USB 3.0 product in as many weeks with the UNITEK USB 3.0 to SATA Adapter, the Y-1034. It allows users to connect SATA or IDE hard drives to computers using a USB port and can support USB 3.0 speeds of up to 5.0Gbps. The adapter simply plugs into the hard drive, turning it into an external drive instantly and without the need for an enclosure.

Connecting IDE hard drives to the Y-1034 adapter does require the company's $16 IDE to SATA docking converter. Last week, Brando introduced the first USB 3.0 hard drive enclosure. The Y-1034 is now available, priced at $48, from Brando's website.
