Cheap 2,5" IDE external case with a screwdriver – USB 2.0 IBM-Compatible 2.5-inch HDD-Enclosure Reviews

posted by kveste on 07/08/2008 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
- Metallic casing.
- Even an idiot could assemble this. You just put the drive to the case, and put the lid back on, then 2 screws, and done.
- Comes with an fake-leather sleeve, that I keep on always, since it doesn't block the USB port, makes it appear more professional.
- Retail packaging.
- A free screwdriver included.
- 2-headed USB cable, probably to get power from low-powered USB ports.
Cons:
- The leather sleeve is starting to break down from the corner, I probably should staple it or something.
Other:
- It took me around 8 minutes to transfer 10gb of files (House M.D Season 2) in it, my drive being salvaged from my broken Nomand Jukebox 2.
Bottomline:
- Cheap and good.
