    VERY GOOD ENCLOSURE FOR OLD DRIVES !!!!

    posted by citius on 07/06/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is the best IDE-enclosure in my point of view! Nice design made of mesh like metal-net. The mesh helps the harddrive to cool down faster because the holea allow hot air from the drive to escape. This funktion keeps the drive cooler and helpas the driv...
    Cons:
    No cons what so ever :-) The harddrive enclosure is sturdy and well build and does what its supposed to do. The only con is t...

    Ideal for reviving old laptop (PATA) HDD

    posted by massdale on 02/20/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Very usefull for creating storage capacity on the go if you still have an old laptop laying around/broken which has a 2,5" PATA HDD in it. The small holes in the metal will ensure your HDD will never get too hot.
    Cons:
    Watch out that you don't lose any of those tiny screws as I nearly did. Although that's not really a con. You just have to not ...

    The good decision for HDD with socket IDE

    posted by SlavikPiligrim on 09/29/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    + Thanks to that it is executed in style of a grid, it is heated less rather than dense cases. + Availability (as socket IDE has become outdated and it is a bit more difficult to find such cases in our shops) + Simplicity in use + Not the big sizes + th...
    Cons:
    - A cover which has come in the complete set it is possible to tell it is not suitable for use. It is very rumpled, sticky, spo...

    Good stuff.

    posted by timotheus on 08/03/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It's a nice compact, breathing enclosure. The HD fits perfectly, I had no real problem installing it. Cable with dual USB for powers works, but I can also use it with a single USB connection.
    Cons:
    It's a little fragile. Mine came a little dented. No real problems though. The screws are tiny, but manageable.
