if there wasnt a rebate i would get one, but u can also get a external usb3 adapter, put the 2 1/2 drive in and get it to work fine as an external HDD.
its a cute item, not really useful except for a few applications.

SATA III and SATA II cables are identical, last I knew. Don't buy into the hype!

|dravid||Does a STA III SSD also require a "SATA III" specific cable to get optimum speeds or will an existing SATA cable in the motherboard (possibly of SATA II generation) used for a previous hard drive suffice?|

You might be able to power up two spinning laptop drives via the USB connections, probably not both starting at the same time. Unlikely that you can power a 3.5" drive at all. Another option would be to install laptop spinning drives in the unit whre more power is available and run SSD's off the USB connections as they should be fine on that.

My question is whether the single USB 3.0 connection to motherboard can handle 2 external HDD's to be accessed at once? My assumption, since it requires 2 sata power connections and data connections is that you can use 2 SSD's in it at same time, completely separate from the USB 3.0 connections. Please correct me if I am wrong.
In other words, can I use 4 drives with this (2 SSD's, 2 external HDD's via USB 3.0)?

|quigon337||As mrshirls stayed above. Each sata port is for a single drive. The USB header is completely separate and only goes to the 2 USB ports up front. Essentially you are getting 2 items in one. A pair of front USB 3.0 ports run by the header and 2 separate hot swap bays each requiring a sata port and a shared molex. If you only want the hot swap you won't need to use the usb header and vice versa|
