A Response to COVID-19 From OWC Founder and CEO, Larry O'Connor
Neutrino Bridge

As of May 8, 2019, the Neutrino Bridge has been discontinued and this model is no longer being manufactured, sold or maintained.

The Neutrino Bridge was an adapter designed to hold a single 2.5" SATA drive. It was both a 2.5" to 3.5" SATA drive adapter with a regular internal SATA interface as well as a next generation USB 3.1 Gen 2 (10G) drive when connected externally over USB.

The closest alternative for this model is the Newer Technology AdaptaDrive.
