WS Review Product Description

 

This is the easiest way EVER to transfer files to and from internal hard drives! Sounds simple - but the uses are off the charts! 

Look how simple it is:

You take an internal hard drive - IDE or SATA (that's pretty much everything from the last 10+ years) and plug it into this device. Then plug the USB cable into your computer - that's it! 

The hard drive you hooked up will show up as a removable drive under My Computer! 

No pesky driver install required! How cool is that?

 

This is the biggie! Let's say you have an old computer laying around and you REALLY want to get the info off the old hard drive and onto your new computer. 

With this, just pop out the old hard drive, hook it to this little gadget, and plug the USB cable into your new computer.

You just got your data back!

Oh, and if you're like me and have been computing for awhile, you probably have an old hard drive or two lying around. If so, just hook it up to this and have instant USB access to your files! Now THAT'S smart!

My favorite use for this? Using it as a cheap backup device!

See, hard drives come in two forms: internal or external. External ones are much more expensive for the same capacity as internal ones! Grab a MUCH cheaper internal drive OR just grab an old hard drive you have lying around that's not gettin' any love - then hook 'em up to this cable - instant backup device!

When you're done, just stick the drive in your desk drawer! Hey, that's my backup plan most of the time! Internal drives are easier to store, cheaper to buy (think WAY cheaper) and just as reliable!

 

So, you have a large file - or group of files - that just won't fit on your flash drive but you need to get them to another computer. Hmm. what to do...

I know - grab that old hard drive sitting in your drawer and use this handy cable put them on there! After all, this cable is basically turning your old hard drive into a giant flash drive, right? Why not use it like one?

 

OK, this may not be for everyone, but I've done this several times with these cables and it works GREAT!

See, I get a lot of people that come to me with infected computers. Well, some of those infections take HOURS to get off their computer because every time you boot Windows, the virus turns on as well. 

So, instead of taking hours to try and manually remove a bad virus, I just pop out the hard drive and - using this cable - hook it to my personal computer. Now I have access to the everything but since windows didn't boot on the infected drive, the virus STAYS DORMANT - and is helpless to stop me from killing it! A quick scan and removal with from my AV software and the problem is fixed!

All thanks to this handy little cable!

We've had cables like this before, and they're ALL wildly popular. The last few times they went on sale, they were gone by morning.

But now we've got something that's making EVERY techno-savvy person's mouth water.

Why?

Because this one is USB 3.0. That means instead of transferring at 480 Mbps... you can go up to 5,000 Mbps!

That's MORE than a 10x increase in speeds! That makes everything easier. From backups to extra storage and more!

Versatility Baby!

Getting easy access to the data on an internal drive that's been removed from a PC is impossible without either a cable like this or tearing apart a compatible computer and hooking the drive back up (assuming you even have the proper connection on the new computer).

Oh, and if you went from a desktop to a laptop - forget it - THIS is the ONLY solution to retrieve that data once you remove the drive! It's one of those tools that every PC user just needs to have, that's for sure!

Of all the extra computer accessories I've purchased over the years, I use THIS cable the most!

Brace yourself - you get all this hard drive and file finesse for just $39.99!
