I've been wanting something like this for a while -- is there really not much call for converters of this type?

Could have just used an USB-to-SATA converter cable that cost $5.

The problem with usb-sata converters is speed.

So, does this make a small raid 0? It doesn't say how it uses 2 drives.

Thats a exact copy of mine from Deltaco? I have one from deltaco for my two OCZ SSD drives?? I mean it doesnt look like it, its exactly the same design just that it has Deltaco instead of A-Data written on it? Does A-Data and Deltaco have the same owner or whats the deal?

expect to see more and more of these, until SSD's are popular enough that cases come with 2.5" HDD mounts
