Product Description

Color: Silver

SABRENT 2.5-Inch SATA Aluminum Hard Drive to USB 2.0 Enclosure (EC-US25)

Take advantage of USB 2.0 to quickly transfer files up to 480 Mbps! Connect any 2.5 inch Serial ATA (SATA) or SATA II Hard Drive to your computer through an available USB 2.0 port on your desktop or laptop. The enclosure is constructed from durable aluminum to ensure heat dissipation. Transfer data quickly and easy; with this great external hard drive case. This enclosure allows you to connect your SATA HDD to USB 1.1 and 2.0. This enclosure supports 9.5mm Hard Drive thickness. Hot-swappable, plug and play, no drivers needed.

The Difference Between USB 2.0 and 3.0

USB cables have different transfer speeds (2.0 and 3.0) that indicate how fast the data is transferred. The higher the number, the faster they can transfer data. For full transfer speeds, the cable and the device must be capable of the same transfer speed. The only way to achieve full USB 3.0 speeds is if the computer, cable, and phone all support USB 3.0 connectivity.

System requirements

Available USB 2.0 port on the computer Windows: 2000/XP/Vista/7/8 (Both 32-bit & 64-bit versions) MAC: OS X

Works great, looks great, was very easy to install drive.
M.D. Stanford
So the enclosure comes with a tiny screwdriver and two screws, you simply attach a 2.5 notebook hard drive and close it and then screw it together.
Sam
I now have a 2.5" SATA hard drive for external use that I was able to salvage from my old laptop!

Color Name: Silver
THE SHORT STORY

Installation consists on pushing the HDD in and screwing 2 little near-microscopic screws using the little screwdriver provided. It's all done in less than 5 minutes but you need good eyes and a steady hand because the little screws are VERY small.

The HDD, once in the enclosure, connects to the computer via an (included) USB wire which powers it. It's immediately recognized by Vista or Windows 7 or your PS3 and you are ready to use it. Recommended.

End of short story.

SPECS

You get the following:

- The aluminum enclosure with the circuitry to the USB interface. It's important for the case to be 'metal' because metal helps dissipate the heat, unlike 'plastic' which would trap it inside.
- 2 little screws (them being so small, it would be good to have an extra just in case).
- A screwdriver for the little screws.
- About nice USB interface cable that would allow you to power the HDD off 2 USB ports if needed.
- Some low-grade plastic-rubber or rubberized plastic protective sleeve which you are not likely to use.
- A little English/Spanish/French manual that includes an easy to follow 6-step installation guide.

RATING

I like it because the price is right and it meets my expectations of keeping HDDs I rip off old laptops or gaming machines safe and accessible through a USB interface.

NOTE:

Off the TWO 'for review' units that I received (one black and one aluminum finish) one had the circuit board detached from the body, in other words, it was broken. This is the response I received from Sabrent after I inquired about their policies in such cases.

Color Name: Silver
...how can you go wrong? I have a special category of tech accessories that I call "cheap enough to buy annually" - these Sabrent enclosures certainly fall into that category! Sabrent sent me a sample of this device. This review is my honest opinion.

I remember when the first of these ultra-cheap IDE enclosures came out - they were a small revolution in portable technology in their own right. Nothing has changed. I have a huge USB 3.0 dock that is super handy, but also bulky. With cheap enclosures like this, I rarely use it for 2.5" drives. Okay so this thing is convenient, but what about everything else?

BUILD/CONSTRUCTION
For $7 with free shipping, you shouldn't be expecting too much. Without a drive in it, this sort of feels like a tin of mints. It is thin aluminum with only an LED and power/data end, mostly plastic. I don't count this against the enclosure, but I mention it so there are no surprises. The all-aluminum construction does allow for the entire enclosure to act like a heatsink - do not be surprised if the whole thing is warm to the touch, it just means it's doing its job.

On the inside there is a foam padding to offer some solidity when the drive is in place, but it could have been thicker - the drive I used barely touches it.

**Important** - these kinds of enclosures offer little to no drive protection, and I highly advise NOT dropping your drive in this enclosure.

Once inserted, you need to drive two screws (included) into the pilot holes - the mini screwdriver included was not the best solution for this (not enough torque with the tiny handle) so I ended up using my own precision Philips-head. It MIGHT do in a pinch.

OPERATION
No issues here.

Color Name: USB 2.0 Brushed Black Aluminum Verified Purchase
It works fine for me on NTFS format . The enclosure is pretty good but I'm skeptical about the USB connection. So far so good. On another note there is a quick easy fat32 format tool out there from a site called ridgecrop that will format any hdd to fat32. I don't know if it was my hdd or what but it wouldn't hold at fat32 format . When you plugged it in you could not see it on my computer. You could see it on the devices as a mass storage??? Made me think this enclosure wasn't connecting . The kids xbox would USB format it and use 32gb of space and leave 116gb free of fat 32 but that wasn't any good because it was only gonna use 32gb for the X Just putting this in here for some of those people that say it won't work it's probably something flaky with your hdd because I just didn't think it was connecting. That format tool worked fine and the enclosure works fine. Just check everything out real good. Hope this helps and I will buy another one of these. You can shim up the wiggle inside the enclosure with some good ol black electrical tape!!!!! Some built up pads on the pwb of the hdd and on the back and it's nice and tight. Update: I haven't had any problems with this unit and have been plugging/unplugging regularly. I used some rubber felt feet squares that I found instead of elec tape that make a perfect fit in the unit and diff screws and I will buy a few more of these soon!
