OK, THIS is really sweet! When I first discovered these, all I could think was, "WOW! EVERYONE needs something like this - what an INCREDIBLE idea!"
What the heck is it? Glad you asked!
We have this amazing little IDE/SATA USB Hard Drive Adapter and it has gotta be one of the most brilliant ideas I've ever come across!
Here's how it works:
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! How cool is that?
Just think of the uses for this! 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!
OK, think about this - how much does an external hard drive cost? They're freakin' expensive! In a LOT of cases they can easily run over $100 - even $200 isn't unusual! Sad part is, if you're like most people, you're just using them as a backup device or extra storage. Know why you're paying so much? That pretty case!
Why not just use an internal hard drive with one of these adapters?
Think about it - hook up any internal IDE or SATA drive to this device and you instantly have a place for backups or extra storage! 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! Heck, I'll bet you have an old computer lying around right now with a drive you could scavenge and use for backups!
Oh, I almost forgot! This even features a ONE TOUCH BACKUP button! Just install the included software, select the stuff that needs backed up, and press the button! It's all done automatically!
Just $25.97! It's an incredible deal - especially when you figure in all the money it's going to save you on those fancy external drives! Pays for itself almost instantly! Check it out:
PS - Stop getting ripped off for hard drive storage! Grab one of these and use ANY IDE or SATA drive for extra space, backup, and storage!
