Now that SATA has started saturating the market, both for hard drives and optical drives, a way to take them on the road is becoming important. R&B Mods has a review of a device that lets you do exactly that, the Eksitdata EasyCombo USB 2.0 to IDE and SATA converter. It will handle 2.5" and 3.5" IDE as well as SATA, making it a very versatile device and it won't take up too much space in your laptop bag.
