When I saw the External Module, I was a little perplexed, too. Is this some new mystery category of product never seen before, I thought? - In reality, ineo, a California based company, took two popular ideas, put them together and made everything as simple as possible.
Most enthusiasts and power users have cracked open an external drive carrier to use on a drive temporally, then put it back together with the drive that was in it before. ineo Tech has taken that idea and refined it.
Today we are going to look at a fairly unique product that matches portable storage with what I can only refer to as a purse for your 2.5" HDD. Don't let the description fool you, the iPile series I-NA214U is very useful and may even turn into a 'must have' tool for easy desktop access to storage drives.
Specifications, Pricing and Availability
The ineo Tech iPile Series USB 3.0 HDD Module consists of three main parts; a pouch that holds the drive and module, the USB 3.0 to SATA II module and of course the USB 3.0 cable. The interesting part of the package is the module that is less than an inch thick, converts SATA II to USB 3.0 and can be used without the purse like pouch.
It is always nice to have a quick way to get to the contents of your drive without having to crack your PCs case open. I should also point out that the module does not use a wall mount power source, so the iPile module will only work with 5 volt "notebook" class drives.
We've said before that USB 3.0 is the future and pricing will soon start to decline. Well, that day is here; the ineo Technology I-NA214U Plus External HDD Module is available at Newegg for only 24.99 USD.
Let's take a look and see what all is included in the package.
