i got the case to salvage data from a old computer worked great as of now im using it with my smart tv. the blue led it has is really bright can get annoying if pointed straight at you but makes a nice glow behind the tv.
Recently purchased 2 more of these as I was so happy with the first. Two years ago this product also came with the internal SATA connection cable and a mounting plate which apparently is no longer included.
Bright drive activity LED can easily be covered with electrical tape. As the LED is recessed, reflection provides indication without the blinding flash of the blue indicator LED.
I have now owned 3 of these. With a 1 TB WD HD inside, they are used as a PVR expander with my Shaw's Pace set-top box. The first one seems to have failed after 2 years (PVR no longer detects the HD even though the enclosure switches on and LED blinks), so I had to buy a new one. What surprise me with my third purchase is that, unlike the first two, the third one no longer includes a SATA-to-eSATA bracket. With this item now becoming quite a bit more expensive, I will probably either switch to using an external HD next time, or use a 2.5-inch HD and enclosure.
installé sur un vidotron ANP 8300HD avec un disque dur 1TB western digital blue . Il suffit d'ouvrir le boitier glisse le disque dur en place ,visser le tout . Brancher le power supply inclus et le cable ESATA inclus . Mettre en marche le ANP ,il a vu le disque dur demande de formater. quelques minutes après le formatage est terminé et ie tout est prêt à utiliser. Les deux premiers jours il y a quelques pixel et des trémolos dans les voix . Ca s'est résorbé ensuite , dû à la compagnie du cable ou à l'installation je ne sais pas . Maintenant tout va bien et j'ai 5 fois plus d'espace d'enregistrement .
I had a 2TB SATA2 hard drive, for some reason it wasn't working with my motherboard anymore. Tried it with this enclosure and it's working fine (so I guess it is either my motherboard or PSU).
This case works great. placing a hard drive in was very easy, and the instructions were clear. Comes with an Esata cable and a USB cable. The only complaint I have is the way the Powe plug is designed. It is big and awkward that it takes up more than one space on a power bar.. other than that, great product.
