IMO - they should have sold the 'upgrade kit' seperately.

Most people dont know that if their laptop, netbook or PC has a WD hard drive drive then there is a version of Acronis that is free to use so long as it detects a WD get that and some cheap $10 USB hard drive caddy to use it for the clone - problem solved.

However if the internal hard drive is a seagate then this 'upgrade kit' might be a good idea.

100% Agree - a "Joe Everyman" compatible upgrade kit as a standalone product is a fantastic idea - I also don't know that we really need to be buying an SSD along with the kit. A standalone kit would be awesome for just putting in a bigger standard drive, or whatever. Maybe you just want to clone the drive as a backup even.

Also IS THIS KIT USB-3 or 2 ?

I had to replicate a 2tb drive over usb2 a few months ago, as the power supply for the USB3 interface I normally used had been damaged, and OH MY FORKING GOWD how massively terrible that was.

If this device also doubles as a generic SATA2.5"<-->USB interface when you are not replicating drives, that would also be fantastic as a technicians spare tool, but I'd hope to heck it would be USB3.

EDIT :
My bad, it seems they already sell a kit like that... Sort of...
