Vantec readying up NexStar SATA to USB 3.0 adapter

Handy for the folks with HDDs all over their desk

Vantec has given us the heads up on its upcoming NexStar SATA to USB 3.0 Adapter (codenamed CB-SATAU3) which does exactly as the name implies.

As you've probably already worked out, this device allows the user to connect a SATA based hard disk directly to it which can then be connected to a USB 3.0 port for SuperSpeed transfer rates.

Both 3.5" and 2.5" SATA HDDs of up to 2TB capacities are supported and it comes with an AC Adapter which I would imagine is only required in conjunction with larger more power demanding mechanical HDDs.

We'll have availability and pricing information very soon when Vantec officially announce the new device.
