Cheezy but good enough

by JED on 6/22/2006

The brushed aluminum case is SO last century, but the electronics worked first time. Note that not all laptop drives have a male connector that fits the female in this case, but I knew mine did. I just plugged it in and my XP SP2 system found the drivers and mounted the drive. Uses 2nd USB port (for power, I think). Score card: Works great +10 Looks cheezy -1 Solid construction +3 Two USB ports -3 Can't see activity LEDs through cover -1 Final score: +8 If I needed another one, I'd buy one like this rather than try something else. I can get used to cheeze.

hard drive enclosure

by John on 2/24/2009

This case is built out of metal with plastic side walls and is well built. I have had 2 other USB 2.5 inch portable hard drive enclosures in the past made by other manufacturers that were made of plastic that eventually broke. I can't see the green LED light through the case that shows when the drive is on and when the dive is seeking. It also has a red light when the drive is on that I can see. The portable drive works well. I takes some time to mount the hard drive on the card that is in the unit as there are mounting screws. If a person wants a drive that can be remove in quickly in say less than 1 minute then you need to get another unit other than this one. Comes with a carrying case.
