  • Broken device but repaired

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    The price is what you expect from dx.com.
    The overall quality is good.

    Cons:

    Device not working.
    After disassembling, investigation of the cuircuit, and research on the net I noticed that the only component (a resistor) on the board was defect. The smd resistor should have a resistance of 1k(+-10%) but it had 10 Ohm instead. After replacing(soldering) it with a correct resistor it worked.

    OtherThoughts:

    Easy to install. Just remove your optical device, plug in your hard drive or solid state drive in the caddy.
    If you don't use your optical device, this is a gadget which you need to have. It's faster than having an external USB drive.

    Bottomline:

    Lukely I know electronics and could manage to repair mine, otherwise it was waste of money.
    I hope no one else experience this problem, but if they do, they know how to fix it.
