Pros Beautiful case. Easy HD install.
Cons No firewire connection.
Summary Had the drive installed in less than 5 minutes (250GB WD). Was disappointed to find out the enclosure did not feature a firewire connection. This was my fault, as I simply assumed it would. For the money, it should. I would expect that from a $20.00 case, but not a $40.00 case.
At any rate, it does exactly what it should and it looks incredible. Does a good job of pulling the heat away from the hard drive. After hours of constant on operation, case is only mildly warm.
Hot swappable. Not sure if it's attributable to Windows XP, but once the power switch is shut off, no need to "Stop" the mass storage device to safely remove from the PC.
