I wonder if this is one of those new drives that doesn't have a SATA interface to a USB3 controller but instead has the USB3 controller directly on the drive itself?

Those new WD Passport drives are like that. Ooh I hate those!

SATA isn't mentioned anywhere on the datasheet.

 

Great price though for a simple secondary backup drive.

Doesn't matter.....out of stock now. It wasn't an hour ago. I did see something in the specs about three types of interfaces.

 

Edit.....back in stock!!

LOL. Damn those companies for not allowing me to take an external drive and turn it into a desktop internal drive! :D

I've always thought you could take those out of the case, remove the adspter, and operate just like an internal drive. Am I wrong?

Some new drives don't have a SATA/USB interface card anymore. The USB connector is soldered directly to the drive. :(

I really, really hope this one isn't like those!

Mind you, if it's USB3, and you have internal USB3 headers, it could be a viable option. We should start a pool on how soon we'll see USB3 RAID cards :D
