  • VERY GOOD ENCLOSURE FOR OLD DRIVES !!!!

    posted by citius on 07:38:09 G7T 06/07/2012 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: This is the best IDE-enclosure in my point of view! Nice design made of mesh like metal-net. The mesh helps the harddrive to cool down faster because the holea allow hot air from the drive to escape. This funktion keeps the drive cooler and helpas the drive to last longer

    Cons: No cons what so ever :-) The harddrive enclosure is sturdy and well build and does what its supposed to do. The only con is that in writing moment the item is "temporary sold-out". Hopefully awailable soon again! :-)

    Other: This drive is easily worth the money, especially when bulk-ordered. Next time this item is awailable i will bulkorder 10 pcs at a time to get the maximum bulk-order discount. I recommend this enclosure for all off you out there who have 2,5" IDE/ATA drives lying around.

  • Ideal for reviving old laptop (PATA) HDD

    posted by massdale on 17:42:16 G2T 20/02/2012 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Very usefull for creating storage capacity on the go if you still have an old laptop laying around/broken which has a 2,5" PATA HDD in it.
    The small holes in the metal will ensure your HDD will never get too hot.

    Cons: Watch out that you don't lose any of those tiny screws as I nearly did. Although that's not really a con. You just have to not mount the HDD in the enclosure in your seat in front of the computer.

    Other: Easy to install the HDD in it.
    If you want a cheap second life for your old laptop HDD, buy this.

  • The good decision for HDD with socket IDE

    posted by SlavikPiligrim on 16:46:27 G9T 29/09/2011 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: + Thanks to that it is executed in style of a grid, it is heated less rather than dense cases. + Availability (as socket IDE has become outdated and it is a bit more difficult to find such cases in our shops) + Simplicity in use + Not the big sizes + the Cable with additional power supplies

    Cons: - A cover which has come in the complete set it is possible to tell it is not suitable for use. It is very rumpled, sticky, spoils the case traces from these stickings. - Many small screws for a twisting (use a screw-driver not from the complete set, and with a magnetic tip then it will be easier) - The price almost as in shops of our city, a difference approximately in 1$ - It seems to me very fragile, will protect HDD at a loss or blow a little.

    Other: It not the ideal variant certainly, but quite suits me. I don't regret that have got it. And to you I advise.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Very decent quality materials. I have it for several months and have not had any problems. Includes screwdriver.

    Cons: I have not had any problems. The screws are very small and can get lost, be careful to place them. Leather carring pouch is not leather and is ugly, I have not used it.

    Other: I do not know how well it protects the hard drive. Is thin. I bought it from Chile. It took more than 1 month to arrive ... but finally arrived.

    posted by Glisern on 07:35:54 G8T 06/08/2011 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: * Allows you to use otherwise unneeded hard drives like I did. 4 year old hard drive from broken laptop and i finally got to see my old files again. *VERY sturdy, the black metal mesh really makes it look good and feel solid. * Hard drive activity LED (just on and off. working and not working) * Two plastic sheets inside enclosure to keep dust out, but two will increase the temperature. only use on on the PCB board side of HDD.

    Cons: *Very tiny screws and non-magnetic screwdriver makes the assembly slightly difficult * Two plastic sheets inside enclosure to keep dust out, but two will increase the temperature. only use on on the PCB board side of HDD. *Most need to use both USB ports to get enough power to the hard drive.

    Other: Cheap, very solid and easy to use when put together makes this a must have for IDE owners.

    posted by timotheus on 17:30:07 G8T 03/08/2011 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: It's a nice compact, breathing enclosure.
    The HD fits perfectly, I had no real problem installing it.
    Cable with dual USB for powers works, but I can also use it with a single USB connection.

    Cons: It's a little fragile. Mine came a little dented. No real problems though.
    The screws are tiny, but manageable.

    Other: Definitely worth the money. This is why I shop on DX.

  • My experience with this

    posted by Ramunas911 on 03:14:30 G3T 30/03/2011 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Good thing at all.

    Cons: Quite good build. Looks stylish. There is a protective plastic card: it should be used to protect hardware from any kind of liquid. But it makes another problem - hard disk is getting hot with both sided plastic cards. So - I do use just 1 side. It took a while when I was able to connect this thing to my PC. I though there is controler's error/fault and finally I have figured out its a HDD fault.

    Other: Going to buy another one when I get my USB cables. Worth of money (just few bucks).

    posted by Alfonsoi on 07:59:25 G3T 29/03/2011 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: - It works very good. - Easy to fit HDD inside it. - Quality build is very good, - Enclosure has holes in it to best HDD ventilation. - Led turns green when HDD works. - It works perfectly on USB 1.1. - USB cable and is included. - Leather pouch fulfill with its function.

    Cons: - Screw driver works bad and screws are difficult to fit. - I had to use my own screw driver to screw on the little screws.

    Other: - I recommend this HDD enclosure. It is all I needed for my old Fujitsu 40 GB HDD.

    posted by fcgomes on 18:19:26 G3T 27/03/2011 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: A very good enclosure. The HD fits very well. The cable that came with it, its working too. The two USBs are very good. Works perfectly. The external power source works very well too.

    Cons: It seems a little fragile.
    The screw that came were a little hard to put on the enclosure, but it worked anyway.
    Some times it's hard to connect to the PC, some HUBs don't stand the needs of the HD. So you have to connect direct to the USB or connect the external power source.

    Other: If you wanna a good enclosure for your 2,5'' HD, thats a very good option. There a lot of types of enclosure, ut this on fits what was made for. I have no regrets of buying it.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: - good materials, good build quality - enclosure allows the disk to be (passivelly) ventilated all the time - ~23-25Mbit/s transfer rate

    Cons: - small, *really* small screws - it's very hard do put them into holes - cable could be longer

    Other: What is the leather pouch for? ;-) I won't use it with this enclosure, but its perfect for my PDA!
