Product Overview The small and the tall
The contents are pretty straightforward. The IB-AC704-6G plugs into a SATA hard drive. The USB cable connects to your computer. The power supply (included) is needed if your device requires external power like a 3.5" HDD or a DVD-/BluRay drive. (2.5" drives use power from the USB port.)

• Adapter cable for 2.5" and 3.5" HDD/SSD and 5.25" drives including power supply
• USB 3.0 up to 5 Gbit/s - Backwards compatible to USB 2.0/1.1
• EasySwap® – Toolless HDD exchange
• HotSwap and Plug & Play
• LED indicator for power and HDD activity Features The SATA to USB adapter for Everything!
The IB-AC704-6G consists of an adapter and an external power supply for power-hungry 2.5" or 3.5" hard drives, solid-state drives or 5.25" drives. A 2.5" HDD/SSD can operate without external power supply. For 3.5" and 5.25 "devices, it might be neccessary to use the power supply.

Small and nimble
The adapter is connected via USB to the PC and with the fast USB 3.0 with UASP support, Files can be copied rapidly and the adapter can be removed again in no time.

Under power
The IB-AC704-6G is compact and portable, the installation of all standard 2.5" SATA hard drives and SSDs just happens, driverless. A 3.5" HDD or a 5.25" drive might be power hungry. Here, the power supply ensures smooth operation.
