Top customer reviews
Installation was a little confusing at first, due to poorly written instructions. I kept trying to pull off the IDE connections from the board. They apparently do not detach from the board - I probably could have forced them off or cut the cords, but I didn't want to void the warranty or damage the case so I just tucked them away on the top and on the bottom of the board.
The case came apart easily and allowed me to insert my drive into the case. Installing my SATA hard drive was a breeze, but for some reason (probably the excess cables crammed on the top of the board) I had a hard time getting the back panel of the case to screw in correctly. It was also almost midnight and I was half asleep, so I'm chalking it up to user error.
My favorite part of this case is the fan - my hard drive is humming along nicely at 35°C, versus my piece of junk enclosure that I was using before running my hard drive at 50-52°C, even after I had drilled holes in the case to help dissipate the heat.
The transfer speeds were about what you would expect on a USB 2.0 data transfer - I sent a 50GB file transfer through from my internal drive to this case and saw an average speed of 25 MB/s, which is what I was expecting given my current PC setup.
Bottom line - this hard drive enclosure is the best bang for your buck, and will do a fantastic job of keeping your hard drive cool. If you don't have one yet, buy this case. If you do have this case, buy another one. If you have two already, buy a third and send it to me! :)
Of course there were first a couple of screws to take off to remove the lid and later put it back on but a convenient little screwdriver was included with a small instruction leaflet. I like that it has a fan although it still runs a couple degrees warmer than the internal hard drive of the computer I attached it to. There are bright blue lights running while it is on and it has a power on and off button on the enclosure so you can keep it attached via usb without running it all the time. Although when you turn it off while there is a program open you may wonder if it is a safe thing to do but so far so good. Sometimes it makes a little noise like hard drives sometimes do, nothing unusual. I was really pleased with this purchase. In comparison to another hard drive enclosure that I have for a laptop hard drive that is just a basic enclosure this one seems more deluxe with the fan and the more sturdy casing. So it does not feel as steady as an internal drive but for an external drive it does really well. Data transfer works and eventually I will wipe it to have extra free storage space for something like photos. It just shows up as another disc in My Computer in Win 7.
I say that because the fan has a protective grating on the outward facing portion of the fan - the blades can't contact external objects IF nothing is jammed into it. Not so on the inside. For about $1 more in cost overall, this could have been avoided. BUT again, 90% my fault. Spinning drive. Loose on the floor. Bad choice. It does bother me that a spinning blade can get so close to the drive holding my work on it. I would hope as a materials engineer, I would worry first about safety of the customers data and second about cost.
So boys and girls - for devices that bounce and move and get carried everywhere, pre-made, sealed drives are your friends. This drive box is meant to be external but not really mobile. Again, 90% my fault.
