NewerTech Announces New USB 2.0 Universal Drive Adapter at Macworld Expo 2008Best-Seller at Macworld Expo 2007 Now Offers Plug & Play Data Transfer with LED Connection Status (January 14, 2008)
Newer Technology, Inc.

The NewerTech USB 2.0 Universal Drive Adapter now features connection status LEDs for easy confirmation when connecting to a USB 1.1/2.0 equipped computer and an IDE/ATA or SATA drive.
A Macworld Expo 2007 best-seller, the NewerTech USB 2.0 Universal Drive Adapter is a complete solution that allows any 2.5?, 3.5?, or 5.25? hard drive or optical drive (standard IDE/ATA/ATAPI 40 pin or Serial-ATA) to be connected via USB to any computer for file transfer after the upgrade of an internal hard drive; for backing-up and storing file archives; and for data access from stored backup drives with Plug & Play ease.
With digital audio and photo files growing in size and becoming a part of daily life, consumers need larger hard drives to store these files.
