Turn a standard 2.5-inch Serial ATA hard drive into an external USB 2.0-and-1394b storage device in minutes with the Mapower MAP-KC21ES external enclosure. The strong-structure aluminum case effectively draws away the heat, combined with unique aerodynamic cooler fins, providing class-leading heat dissipation and device protection.

The Mapower MAP-KC21ES features 1394b (FireWire 800) and USB 2.0 interfaces offering speeds up to 800Mbits or 480Mbits per second, respectively. This flexibility lets you use your hard drive at its full performance where 1394b is available and still have the option of using USB where it's not. An attractive blue LED lets you know you have power and when the hard drive is actively working.

The drive features a stackable design, and is Mac and PC compatible. There's no external power necessary either, since the drive gets its power from your computer. The Mapower MAP-KC21ES is a great way to store and transfer data in style!

5 out of 5 eggsGlyph Audio Drives

Pros: Glyph Audio Hard drives Portagig 800 series uses this same case! works great!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Looks nice and foot pads and top make it look stackable but not sure about what this would do heat wise.

5 out of 5 eggsGood external enclosure option

Pros: The product works as advertised. The aluminum construction certainly aids in heat dissipation. This is a nice compact design, My enclosure shipped with 1394b cable, USB 2.0 cable, leather carrying case, hex-key tool, and external power supply.

Cons: The product specs/list of contents are a little vague. Price points on 1394b (Firewire 800)-equipped products tends to be a little on the high side.

Other Thoughts: My HD-installed enclosure, using the 1394b cable worked with or without the external power supply. However, I prefer to use the external power supply to minimize power load on my Mac Book Pro. I haven't used the USB 2.0 option, since the 1394b transfer rate is much quicker.

As always, great service from Newegg.

5 out of 5 eggsQuality Product

Pros: Very nice quality enclosure with FW800 to work with my Mac computers. It comes nicely packaged and is a quality product.

Cons: Price. Not sure why FW800 drive enclosures are so over priced.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great and Runs Cool

Pros: Works Great and Runs Cool. The drive in the enclosure stays very cool compared to other enclosures I tried. The fins on the sides are more than just decoration. I had problems with other enclosures cooking the drive and drawing too much current from the system. The enclosure came with a power brick, so I don't have to worry about frying my ports by drawing too much current.

Cons: The overview says "There's no external power necessary either, since the drive gets its power from your computer." However, the enclosure didn't work at all without the power brick when connected to an Intel Mac with 1394b.
