Customer Reviews of Macally PHR-100AC Hard Drive Enclosure - 1 x 3.5" - 1/3H Internal - USB - External
I had a Western Digital 200 Gig hard drive that needed a home and I was looking for a well designed external USB enclosure. This case is well constructed and has decent shock absorbency built into the design. Much better case (aluminum) then the Western Digital cases (plastic) used for their "My Book" external drives.
Great value, with firewire too!2/23/2006
The unit is great. Works really well and is easy to setup. It is a big plus to have an on/off switch so that I can make sure that I have the unit is off. I have had this for a week now and have had no problems with it. It is a little bulky though, but the vertical stackable stand makes it easy to place on my desk. Having the firewire connection is very helpful and much more versatile. This is a great way to buy large capacity internal harddrives cheap and use them as external hard drives. My suggestion is to buy a large internal hard drive as that way you don't have to take the unit apart to keep changing hard disks.
Top of the line external hard drive case4/10/2005
I've had a few cases, and these are top of the line. I own 2 currently and may be getting more. All aluminum, with special rubber boots for the hard drive so the hard drive hangs suspended inside the case and does not touch the edges. Aluminum case is well build, and absorbs heat from hard drive very well. The firewire connection is excellent and the USB is great too. The non slip rubber pads come in handy when case is placed horizontal or stacked. There is a blue light, which turns purple when there is activity. The plastic stand is great for vertical mount. On off switch in the back of unit. Comes with USB and Firewire cables and driver CD and some screws and rubber boots for HD. I'd buy this product again anytime. Definitely an awesome product that you will be proud to own. A homerun product from Mace Group. Don't settle for cheap cases, get the best right here.
