It's perfect for adding mega-amounts of storage to your single board computer, like a Raspberry Pi or BeagleBone. Simply plug the drive in to the SATA data/power port on one side, then USB on the other. Go for USB 3 ports if you have them for the speediest transfers, but USB 2 ports will work just fine as well.
