if it was USB 3.0 i could see a market for this, but not as it stands.

Are there any US vendors for this product? Scythe USA doesn't seem to have this product, nor do any online resellers? Alternately, are there any resellers in Canada or the UK that may ship to the US?

Got to hand it to Scythe to offer something uniquely innovative at a nice price. Id love to get one of these and test it out, I imagine the card reader would be faster.

1st please change the title, Kama Connect 2 is the "old" model, the new one is, as you also mentioned in the article itself, Kama Connect Plus.

2nd, I can hardly wait for Kama Connect Plus to come, I have Kama Connect 2 and is brilliant for a lot of applications (hdd recovery, a.s.o.). The only bad thing about Kama Connect 2 is that it supports only 750GB HDD...
