Performance

This is my first experience with an external enclosure, and with this brand. I was impressed. It took like 5 minutes to install a 3.5 inch drive. The fan is quiet (you're more likely to hear the drive itself). It's fast -- I can't tell the difference in transfer speed vs. an internal IDE drive. And it's got a nice, clean, simple design. Windows XP recognized it right away without any special software. The only con is it's a little bulky for housing a 3.5 inch drive. For an optical (5.25 inch) drive, it would be perfect. I plan on getting another for my NEC DVD burner so I can finally get rid of my desktop.

Product is poorly designed and clunky. Performance is mediocre and what's even worse power cords were missing from the kit. Stay away from this one ...

Large size but looks cool

by Dave on 3/4/2006

It is a large case for a 3.5 drive but drive was easy to install just two screws to hold the drive in place, silent, runs cool to the touch. Good transfer rate.
