The main unit is a rectangle shape and has a long cable that plugs into your PC and achieves USB 2.0 speeds. There are two plugs; one carries the data signal and the other provides additional power.

The first side of the unit has the IDE, MS and Compact Flash ports. The IDE connector is positioned so that the power plug on the drive is away from the adapter.

The SATA port is on the side of the adapter. Vantec included a small SATA cable which makes install very straightforward.

XD and SD card ports are found on this side, as is the FDD IDE port for when you need to use a floppy drive.

The accessory package is pretty extensive. Here we see the short SATA cable as well as the manual. One of the neatest items to come in the package is the power brick that is used to power the IDE and SATA drives.
