Vizo Ares II Dual 2.5-inch SATA Drive Adapter

 

There really isn't anything to show the Ares II as a technical marvel or something that is going to give you blazing fast performance over what your hard drives would run at normally. There really aren't any advancements when it comes to drive enclosures like this. Their main selling point is ease of access. This is mainly due to users who are starting to take advantage of hot swap features now found on many motherboards.

 

The Ares II allows you to place two 2.5" SATA drives in a single 3.5" slot. These are the spaces that were once filled with floppy drives ten years ago and other than specialty hardware today generally go unutilized.

 

Vizo has already taken big steps to get their products to the market. In the US, Newegg is already selling Vizo products. The Ares II Dual Drive Adapter is currently available from the etail superstore for 59.99 USD. The cost seems a little high to us for an enclosure so we will need to take a closer look and see if the Ares II is a worthwhile accessory that can make your experience 60 Dollars easier.
