Does your IT office have a bunch of dusty old SATA, 3.5 IDE, 5.25 IDE and 2.5 IDE drives scattered around? Of course it does. Have you ever wondered what's on them? Of course you have. With this USB to SATA/IDE transfer kit from Vantec, there's a quick and easy way to plug an old drive into a new laptop and snoop away. Or maybe you have some business reason for accessing them. That's fine, too. The three-foot cable with external power adapter makes it simple to hot-swap old drives for the sake of additional storage. Or simply for curiosity's sake. Whichever.
