Must have if you tinker with your PC. Get one now!

Needed to wipe an old HD from bootable Windows XP, to a blank drive for a Linux system I'm putting together from two older systems, and clone my wife's bootable Windows 7 HDD in her laptop (because the hard drive is failing) so I can replace it with a new drive with the Windows 7 operating system and data ported over to it. Having both of these situations pop up at the same time, when I looked for options for both problems, I found this little item at Amazon. For the bucks it seemed like a good idea. Just started formatting the old 80 GB drive from the donor PC, and it's working great. One thing I didn't see mentioned in description or other reviews, is that it has a small blue LED on the top of the plug-in to show data transfer or that it's working. You have to look at it from above, as it's too small to see it otherwise, but it's a nice feature. If you work on your own PC's, or would like to be able to use an old internal SATA drive as an external hard drive for back up, or (if large enough...) as a really big thumb drive. You can get fairly large 2.5" laptop hard drives that fit the palm of your hand, heck, you can even get enclosures for them, and that is a way to get a huge portable external hard drive for your laptop bag. Once I've got these two jobs done, that's what I plan next. Get a low cost 1TB drive for my laptop bag, since my work laptop only has 250 GB SSD, and it's filling up fast. For the buck you can't really afford not to get one.
