Description

Turn an Internal 3.5" SATA or IDE Hard Drive into an External USB/eSATA Hard Drive. This InfoSafe 3.5in IDE/SATA external hard drive enclosure connects to a host computer through either USB 2.0 (SATA or IDE) or eSATA (SATA only), delivering versatility and cost-effectiveness. Large capacity drives (tested with up to 4TB) can be used to greatly enhance your computer's storage/backup capabilities.

This black aluminum drive enclosure features a screwless snap-in design for hard drive installation that saves time, and supports any standard 3.5in SATA or IDE hard drive - allowing you to customize your external storage solution based on your preference of hard drive model and manufacturer. The External hard drive enclosure features a large built-in 80mm fan that provides enhanced re-distribution of heat build-up generated as a result of typical drive operation. This feature is especially important for larger capacity hard drives, and faster "spinning" drives (i.e 7200 RPM), as it can help keep drives running cooler, which can preserve data integrity and the drive's lifespan by reducing the chances of premature failures.

Designed to provide a convenient and efficient operating experience, the enclosure features "One Touch Backup", which automates backup tasks, allowing you to backup files and folders at the touch of a button, based on pre-defined settings within the easy to use software utility (included).

Installation of the hard drive is easy. Push the slider on the back of the case and the outer case sides off. The SATA cable was already installed in mine, I removed it to ease fitting of the drive. The drive is held by two grey clips that locate plastic prongs into the screw holes. Once fitted the drive is securely held. I connected the SATA cable to the drive first then installed it and finally fitted the cables to the circuit board in the enclosure. If you use SATA drive you have to select a SATA port on the circuit board. One uses eSATA port only, the other uses USB only. This is slightly annoying if you wish to use the enclosure on a PC with a eSATA port and one without, as you would have to open the case and switch the cable over each time. The case is a little noisier than others I own, but this is due to the 80mm fan in the case. It is not distracting. I would recommend this enclosure.

Since it takes less than a minute to install a drive I used this enclosure to copy data from both old IDE and SATA drives (no need for outer case) before installing the largest drive as a permanent backup (with outer case).
The fan is a nice touch and is very quiet but the fan cover on the outer case is very easily dislodged when inserting the drive however it can easily be repositioned
Works with Windows 7 64bit
