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.
Brando is now offering USB 3.0 hard drive enclosures that fit any 2.5-inch SATA hard drives. As the name suggests, they are USB 3.0 compliant, allowing for theoretical maximum transfer speeds of up to 5Gbps, or ten times that of traditional USB 2.0 connections. They enclosures are backwards compatible with the USB 2.0 and 1.1 standards as well.
