    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    This is very useful, just connect the power calbe, sata or ide cable in hdd/dvd-rw/cd-rom; and the usb cable. Theres's a external drive ready to operate. Plug-and-play in XP, Seven and Ubuntu.
    Muito prático, apenas conecte o cabo de energia, o cabo de dados sata ou ide e plugar no usb.
    Não precisa de instalar drives pra funcionar. Basta ligar no XP, Seven ou Ubuntu.

    Cons:

    Doesn't seem very durable.
    The power adapter has little buzz sound.
    Don't have a on/off button, then you connect the cable and the hdd start working. So I use a extension with on/off button.
    Não parece muito durável.
    O adaptador de energia fica zinindo.
    Não tem um botão de liga/desliga, então quando conceto o cabo, já começa a funcionar. Uso uma extensão só por causa do botão de liga/desliga.

    OtherThoughts:

    I've burned a dvd, use a hdd 40gb (ide) and some sata. And a ide 2.5" notebook hard drive.
    Gravei um dvd, usei um hd de 40gb ide e alguns hd sata.
    E um velho hd de 2.5 de notebook.

    Bottomline:

    The 2.5" hard drive was plugged in usb cable and then in a Wii. Works without power.
    O hd de 2.5 foi conectado no wii, e funcionou sem cabo de energia.
