Pretty Good – 2.5-inch Aluminum SATA Hard Disk Enclosure (USB 2.0 Port) Reviews

posted by TM_Calgary on 05/18/2008 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
This is the only enclosure I have tried thus far that worked properly with my Conexsat PVR in combination with a 60GB Hitachi SATA drive. The STB can power the drive without extra power.
Cons:
It was difficult to put together and the included cable is poor quality. While the case has an aux-power plug (not to be mistaken for the extra USB plug) it does not include a cable, these cables are virtually impossible to find unless they are bundled with another enclosure.
I am not sure the drive enclosure provides adaquate shielding
Other:
A similar drive enclosure is sold locally around here for $35.
Bottomline:
It does the job I bought it for very well, I would buy it again without hesitation.
