The disk reader to end all disk readers – SATA, USB & memory card 3-in-1

Hard Drives, Peripherals

3-in-1-disk-reader.jpgExternalising your hard drive may seem like a silly idea and in a way, it is but if instead you use this 3-in-1 disk reader as an opportunity for a second large drive, then it’s a stroke of genius.

This boxy, grey lump is a little unsightly as desktop ornaments go but it can read 2.5″ and 3.5″ SATA HDDs as well as having all the slots you could ever need for memory cards and a couple of USB ports to go with it and before you start panicking about read speeds, it comes with an eSATA cable for 120MB/s data transfer, around double what you’d get if you used the USB connector, which is supplied, just in case.

The 3-in-1 will work with Windows 2000, XP and Vista and comes in at a reasonable $78.99 with whatever region power adapter you need. The down side is that it weighs nearly half a kilo and that’s without the hard disk sticking out of it. Still, a small price to pay for the ultimate in memory machines.
