Customer Reviews of Coolmax HD-250BZ-U2 Hard Drive Enclosure - 1 x 2.5" - Internal - External - Copper
I've searched every website trying to find the best price and Buy.com is the winner. I purchased the 2.5" 500 gig Toshiba 7200 3gbs 16 mb cache laptop hard drive for my laptop but, i didn't need it, so I bought this enclosure and let me tell you, it runs flawlessly. I set it up under fat32 for my win 98 computer and then unplugged it and hooked up the eSATA port to my Vista 64 laptop and it read everything. Please keep in mind, in order for the eSATA function to work you have to use BOTH the eSATA cable and USB at the same time or Vista won't see it. The transfer rates are a big difference from USB to eSATA so it's your call. It comes with a very well constructed Leather carry case and drivers but it didn't need them. Formatting was easy under windows 98 but i heard you needed to do quite a bit to format it under vista, just a heads up ! It stays cool and runs very quiet !
Very easy to use and very attractive. Just used it to put my old laptop HD to use as an external. It was very easy to assemble and all the tools are included. A very good buy compared to other ones. The price is a little more than others, but the quality is superb.
