Default sata to usb adapter

this stuff just got my eye... i thought it would be useful to have one for emergency like flash my ssd or hard drive that i found on my shelf...

i found almost 10 cdn for this stuff...

Buy nGear Technologies Inc. [MPC000017860] nGear USB2.0 to SATA/IDE Drive Adapter 2.5/3.5/5.25IN Drives w/ Power Adapter

so i wonder... is this useful tool? i hope this can support sata 2/3... can it?

My System Specs

Default

I have one and have used it a number of times turns any drive into a USB 2 drive.
The power supply that came with mine is going to be more useful fore water cooling to run my pump without a computer power supply. Just need to pin mod a molex extender,

Edit: USB 2 is much slower than Stata 2 or Stata 3 but still a usefull tool. :)
