The ineo Technology USB 3.0 External HDD Module

Here we see the entire package laid out. As mentioned previously, there is a small adapter module, USB 3.0 cable and a pouch that holds the drive and module.

To keep the module small a mini USB 3.0 plug was used. You connect this side to your PC.

Your SATA 2.5" hard drive connects to this side. Since USB 3.0 has more power than USB 2.0, you will be fine using this product with any USB 3.0 port. Things start to get sketchy when dealing with USB 2.0 and some 2.5" platter drives may have issues when using this product with USB 2.0 ports.

 

This last week I observed a situation similar and the drive would not work correctly when connected to a Dell desktop system.

Here we see one of our Crucial RealSSD C300 256GB drives attached to the ineo module.

Above we see the entire system put together with the drive and module inside the pouch. You get around 10 inches of cable. Until we see more front mounted USB 3.0 connectors, this length will mean users have to reach around their case to plug the drive in to get USB 3.0 connectivity.
