PhotoFast reveals SATA to USB 3.0 adapter

Posted on Wednesday, June 30 2010 @ 05:24:14 CEST by

PhotoFast launched the Gbox Mini, a new converter that enables you to connect SATA devices to your USB 3.0 port. The adapter will be available by the end of July for around $22.
The GBox mini, measuring 75 x 38 x 17 mm and weighing 23 grams, will plug into the SATA interface of any spare HDD or SSD that consumers may own and will allow the other end to be connected to a PC's USB port. Adapters of this type have been launched before, but not many, if any, were designed to allow SATA storage units to actually operate at the level of the SuperSpeed standard.

The GBox mini is compatible with both 3.5-inch as well as 2.5-inch hard disk drives or solid state drives and can reach transfer rates of up to 128MB/s when reading and 95MB/s when writing.

Granted, depending on how fast the actual drive itself is, higher speeds may very well be possible. The item is also backwards compatible with USB 2.0 and USB 1.1 ports, as well as Mass Storage Class Bulk-Only Transport, Revision 1.0.
