    A-DATA Technology Co., Ltd., a worldwide leader in high performance memory products, announced today that it has launched A-DATA XPG 3.5” SSD Enclosure to expand its portfolio of SSD solutions. This device is an ingenious hard drive converter, turning up to two 2.5” SATA SSDs into a 3.5” SATA drive.

    With this converter, installing a 2.5” drive into a regular PC will be easier than ever, allowing more convenience to recover data from notebooks onto a desktop computer and vise versa. It’s very valuable and functional for users who expect SSD speed on their home or office desktop; a perfect product with the speed of SATA II for any average or advanced computer user. Also, the hard drive converter features a safety lock mechanism that allow users to lock up the storage drives, making them unattainable to keep the drives fully secured and safe when they are in operation.

    Revolutionizing the general usage of 2.5” SSDs, this enclosure fits exactly into a common 3.5”desktop bay or floppy disk bay without having to purchase any attachments to mount 2.5” drives into the enclosure. Designed for both internal & external purposes, A-DATA XPG 3.5” SSD Enclosure is the best choice for storage expansion and backup solution.
    This product is available as a total solution including two 2.5” SATA II SSDs with capacities from 32GBx2 up to 384GBx2.

    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
