Not the Same Size/Quality as original
on September 6, 2011
Got them today. I bought this so I could put a different Color Sleeve on different drives so I would know which is which just by look (Orange is MAC Filesystem, Black is Windows NTFS, and Gray is FAT32, etc...)...
1. They are slightly "smaller" in outside demensions from the original. The drive actually "Fits" perfectly inside the new sleeve, but since the outside is smaller the actual "Silver/Metal" part of the drive now rests on the table without the rubberized part touching at all.... instead of the drive being "Recessed" into the sleeve like the original orange.
2. They are of a more "flimsy" quality then the original which was more rigid.
The whole idea of this "Rugged" drive is the protection from getting banged up. These different color sleeves basically elimate that protection.
You would think it would be simple to change color... just inject different color plastic/rubber in the same mold the orange was made in. Some how they mucked this up by creating a different mold for the colored accessories option and ruined it. I would return it... but my time is more valuable to me than the $15.00
