I am trying to buy an additional HD for my desktop and came across this, I have never seen or heard of a FATA / FC drive before, to be honest it looks like a 2.5" drive in an adapter... What is this? It looks to me like a normal SATA drive in an adapter but could I just take it out of this adapter and use it in my desktop?

 

Sorry for the newbie question, it is the cheapest option for 500gb drives where I live but I just want to make sure it is not the cheapest waste of money on something that doesn't work :)

These drives are meant for use in a stacked array for servers.  Fibre optic gives faster speeds and most likely not adaptable to a machine without the fibre option.
