I unpacked it, put in my first old hard drive and was rolling. In the first 2 hours I was able to check several old hard drives to see if they were usable or not. Had no probelms recognizing any of the drives. WinXP did not require any new drivers. Installing hard drives could not be simpler. Two screws and you're there. Extremely quite. Good deal.

I don't know if it uses USB2's full capabilities, but it transfers my movies to/from the drive fast enough for my needs. I just transferred a 700MB file in about 35-40 seconds... take that for what it's worth. Drive install is easy. The 2 screws in the back can be unscrewed by hand. Case easily slides open. The IDE plug is attached to the internal printed circuit board (so there's no short IDE cable to deal with... drives line up perfectly). Just plug the short power cable and you're good to go. Cooling doesn't seem to be an issue (cases are only mildly warm to the touch after hours of use/read/writing). XP SP2 didn't require any driver loading -- I just plugged the USB cable in and I was good to go. The only con I could really think of was that the power cable seemed a bit short. I want to say 4 ft. Other than that... it's served my needs perfectly. Running 3 of these -- a 200GB, 250GB, and a 320GB drive.

Reliable, affordable and super easy to use

on 2/27/2006

My old computer crashed (power supply, I think) and I decided to get a new computer. Didn't want to lose all my old data, so I purchased this external case and hoped to convert my old harddrive into an external backup. Within 5 minutes of receiving this, I was up and running and all my files were in tact. Does not require you to be a computer expert, but you do have to know how to change jumpers and follow some easy instructions. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to back up or retrieve files from an old harddrive.
