Type-C USB Adapter Retrieves Data From 44-pin Notebook Drives

News, Peripherals, Storage

Sabrent reached out to let us know that it’s updated the USB interface on its multi-format ATA drive adapter: It now plugs directly into a Type-C port, though it still uses an AC adapter rather than the extra capacity of Type-C to power hungry drives. It probably won’t be perfect, but we’ll take what we can get.

Details are light but a quick look at the video exposes that its interface is still stuck at the original versions USB 3.0 bandwidth (5Gb/s) and worse, that its fastest SATA connection is stuck at the decades-old 3Gb/s standard. And you’ll still buy it, because speed won’t be a priority on the task you’re about to use it for: Retrieving old photos and/or videos from that broken notebook or PC that’s been sitting in the back of your closet for the last five or more years. You’re welcome.
