The external enclosure comes with everything needed to install the hard drive. It can be connected to computer through USB or eSATA connection. Installation was very easy and fun, the only problem was with package I received is that the wire for fan was getting on the blades, but I fixed it up with screwdriver.
Since the package said that it will work with hard drives up to 1.5 TB, I brought SAMSUNG EcoGreen F2 HD154UI 1.5TB 32MB Cache SATA 3.0GB/s 3.5".
When I hooked everything up, I was amazing how beautiful this enclosure is. I thought that it will be loud though, like my other two external enclosures. But when I turned it on, it seemed like it’s not working because it was really quiet. In the back there is switch to turn the blue led on the fan on and off. It is really good function for people that may leave their computer run at night and don’t want any unneeded lights. It also runs faster than my other external enclosures. I just checked on newegg and it goes for only $35. Get it and you won’t be sorry!
The product gets Editors Choice title because it’s great at everything!
Thanks for the supplied external enclosure to the manufacturer!
