I’ve bought several of these Sabrent SATA/IDE EC-UEIS7 enclosures and overall they work well. They appear to come in at least 2 configurations (same model number). One has silver external screws and has permanently mounted SATA and PATA power and data cables. The other has black external screws and removable (and longer) internal cables. The one with the longer cables is easier to manage when installing a SATA hard drive and a bit more roomy with the unnecessary PATA cables removed. I’ve found that the one with black screws consistently required some case squeezing top and sides to align the cover screw holes in order to reassemble – a small nuisance but manageable. In one instance upon opening the box I found that a fan blade had been broken. An email to Sabrent support had a replacement mailed to me within a few days. While playing with the broken fan powered up, I hit a blade and was surprised at how easily they break, so be careful around the fan. In my opinion the fans are reasonably quiet. The internals are tightly packed when a hard drive is installed so I was curious as to how effective the cooling would be, so I decided to experiment with a Seagate 1.5TB 7200 RPM SATA drive which I know runs hot. Running this drive in a StarTech dock in open 73F air (no fan) had the drive heat to 115F according to the drive’s sensor. Running it connected to the Sabrent with the fan blowing on it from the end and over the top and bottom (but not in the assembled enclosure) heated the drive to only 90F. Once placed Inside the assembled enclosure the temperature reached 102F, but with the fan unplugged in the assembled enclosure the temperature reached 117F. No question about the fan being effective but if the case were designed for better airflow no question that lower temperatures could be reached. I’ve used this with the USB connection and with the eSATA connection and either way worked well.

Very handy for both IDE and SATA drives

by Larry on 9/28/2012

I have several IDE and SATA drives from older computers. This housing lets me connect to my eSATA port on the front of my case and use both IDE and SATA drives within it. Fast data transfer with no other software needed. Very happy so far. One note, you will need to purchase an eSATA cable to use that feature. There are several styles, so CAREFULLY compare photos of ends to insure you have the correct configuration for your needs. I found a 6Gb rated cable for just a few $ & free ship.
