Performance

Beautiful, quiet, works great.

on 10/12/2006

I change my old 5.25" enclosure into this one since I don't think DVD burner need an extra noisy heatsink. This enclosure works well, and is totally silent due to its no fan design. The aluminum case is light and good for heat disposure. The IEEE1394 gives me a steady 6-8x DVD burning instead of 4-8x USB 2.0 unstable burning speed. Stable, quiet, and it looks nice, too. Strongly recommended for DVD burners!

I have several of the Macally enclosures in use. They are rock solid and a good way to save $$$ instead of buying external drives. My experiences with Buy.com have also been excellent, with the orders showing up as promised.
