OK, I will be reading the comments on this one closely. I have a drive that could be used with a new enclusure. And if this is a good one…


#9

woot this is what concerns us the most reguarding to external cases:
material: plastic or aluminium
fans?
what chipset do it contain?


#10

Oh if only it was firewire!


#11

#13

Crap…already have one of these things. Waited up for a repeat?? G’nite

BTW, this thing saved my bacon when I had to replace the M-board/processor on my laptop.

480MB per second is incorrect. USB supports maximum transfer rates of 480 megabits, not megabytes (this doesn’t include it’s massive transfer overhead). Mot to mention that finding a single ata-133 drive that is capible of a sustained 480 megabit transfer would also be quite a feat.

I wish you monkeys would learn to read a description before you make a dumb question…

#17

Hey…I paid $69 for one of these at Office Depot last month! It works great. I have old IDE drives that need a home…I’m gonna buy three more at this killer price!


#18

Excuse my techsavvylessness but … this is an external casing for a standard desktop PC hardrive right?

is it only for back ups or could I hook it up and use it as added storage?


#19

includes 6ft USB cable??? that alone makes it worth the price.
(at least thats what radio shack would have you believe.)

SWEETZORZ!@!#!@!$

Well, I need an external USB drive case because 99% of the point of making a backup copy is to store that backup somewhere far away from the original, so the same accident/disaster/ex-wife which destroys the original doesn’t also take out the backup copy.
