The whole setup is first class, data cables for sata and pata inside unit, power cables for both 4-pin and a SATA power adapter. USB cable if you need to move data to a non-esata computer. Base holder allows tucking unit in tight area and fan prevents overheating of drive. New and older drives will feel at home in this case although pata units will be a bit tighter with adapting cables inside. I wanted this as a backup solution and wanted the fan in case I forgot to shut the unit off. I won't forget that it's running, the fan is a steady whirring little bugger. It's not a big deal for me because of the situation of my setup but if it was an office where I met clients, the fan would be too loud.

This enclosure stays cool, is quiet, and is built very solidly. Easy to do a quick drive change. Watch out for the jumper settings you need to make inside the enclosure (this means you have to actually read the instructions for 1 minute).

Excellent

by Musty on 4/13/2009

Tool-less installation. Easy to swap drives. If you swap from IDE to Sata, then you have to swap a cable for the power supply as well as the drive cable. Even that is not difficult. The power button does not turn the unit off. It appears to simply prevent access to the drive. But the drive, fan, and blue light on the button all remain on. Luckily, it is pretty quite. I bought this to use with a DVD player that has an USB input. The DVD instructions claimed that it only works with flash drives. However, I got it to work by formatting the drive in FAT32, using partitions less than 32 gb. Each partition shows as a separate folder. Read More

Product Overview

This IDE/SATA external hard drive enclosure connects to a host computer through either USB 2.0 or eSATA, delivering versatility and cost-effectiveness.

The drive enclosure features a screwless snap-in design that saves installation time, and supports any standard 3.5in SATA or IDE hard drive (supports 1TB capacity hard drives) - allowing you to customize your external storage solution based on your preference of hard drive model and manufacturer.

Designed to provide a convenient and efficient operating experience, the enclosure features "One Touch Backup", which automates backup tasks, allowing you to backup files and folders at the touch of a button, based on pre-defined settings within the easy to use software utility (included).

To ensure a suitable operating environment for installed hard drives, the SATA/IDE enclosure features a built-in 80mm fan that re-distributes the heat build-up generated as a result of typical drive operation. This feature is especially important for larger volume storage (750GB, 1TB hard drives), and faster “spinning" drives (i.e 7200 RPM), as it can help optimize drive operability and in turn preserve stored data integrity.
