    USB2.0 is a bit out of date. Cheap, yes, but only moderately useful, and soon to be obsolete.

    Does that mean that one day soon my computer is going to throw up its computery hands and refuse to connect to USB2.0?

    A little exaggerated don't you think?

    You use this for checking, cleaning and recovering busted hard drives, USB 2 is more than adequate.

    OT.
    Good deal, I paid over £30 for mine, but I can't live without it.

    You couldn't have looked very hard, these things have been around for years...
    I got a USB2/eSATA one almost 2 years ago for £20, still serving me well and is very useful if you store data on many bare drives (like I do).

    I do tend to instead buy a USB enclosure and remove the electronics. These work well but... a little bulky.

    I paid £25 for one of these (different but non famous brand) and have had no regrets whatsoever. Fill your boots at this price.

    If you use it for backing up to a spare hard drive though, as I imagine many people do, then it is pretty slow.
    It would also be slow for virus scanning, or recovering busted hard drives, as you put it.so maybe price out a usb3 one before wasting any money.....
    You want at least the speed of your drive, fairly large hard drive will read/write at 80MB/s and up - this cheap item does so at around 30MB/s

    Which ever way you slice it, a USB3 or firewire or thundebolt or a hotswap bay in your tower would be preferable unless your really short of cash and have lots of time.

    For anyone thinking about such things. Novatech do a USB 3 one for £12.93 (plus delivery); up to 5gps transfer rate if you have USB, backward compatible if you aren't there yet.

    Novatech linky-thingy

    Good price for this one too though.

    Cheers OP. Have a couple of spare hard drives knocking around that need wiping, and this is ideal.

    Even nicer when it's cheaper:

    and cheaper still if you search for similar and don't object to the foreign suppliers.
