Works as described
The Coolmax HD-211-COMBO does exactly what it's supposed to do. Installing the drive into the enclosure was easy and straightforward. You don't even need a screwdriver as one is provided. The included screwdriver was even handy enough to open my laptop to swap out the old drive. Using firewire is a little strange as the enclosure has both 4 and 6 wire firewire connectors and comes with 4 and 6 wire cables. However it will only work with the 6 wire cable unless you have an external power source which isn't included and not mentioned in the manual or on their web site. Using USB is straightforward although I found I need to plug both USB connectors into the computer before attaching the cable to the housing to prevent windows from shutting down USB due to excess current draw when you plug in the first usb connector.
