Vendor unveils USB Serial-ATA dongle

Hook big, fast drives up to your USB port

Top three mobile application threats

Japanese storage specialist Novac has figured out an easy way to connect eSATA drives to PCs without a suitable port: a USB-connected adaptor dongle.

The manufacturer even suggests hooking up four 3.5in SATA drives to the NV-US2020, as the dongle's dubbed, via a hub. That would make for one heck of a USB Flash drive.

The unit will ship with cables for SATA and eSATA drives, and supports both 1.5Gbps and 3Gbps versions of the spec - both rather higher than USB 2.0's 480Mbps maximum data transfer rate. It's due to ship next week for ¥3,980 ($34/£18/€27). More Japanese-language details here. ®
