Turn a standard 2.5-inch Parallel ATA hard drive into a portable USB 2.0 storage device with the Thermaltake A2397 Silver River aluminum external enclosure. The silver aluminum casing acts as a heatsink, to keep the hard drive cool during operation and help dissipate heat quickly when you’re done. No fans mean less noise in your work environment.

Once you've installed a hard drive inside this slim enclosure (it measures 5.04" x 3.11" x 0.64"), you simply connect the bundled USB-to-USB cable between the drive and your computer. There's no external power necessary, either, since the drive gets its power from your computer. There's even a power switch on the drive to let you shut it down and keep it from using your laptop’s battery—something you won't find on many portable units this size.

A full manual and user guide is included, as is a leather wallet to store the drive in while it's not in use and all the tools necessary to install a drive.

  • newegg Supports 2.5-inch Hard Drives The Thermaltake A2397 external enclosure provides broad compatibility with all standard 2.5-inch 9.5mm IDE hard drives to enable capacities of up to 80 GB or even more!
  • newegg USB 2.0 Interface The USB 2.0 interface enables high data transfer speeds of up to 480Mbps so you save time while copying or moving data. Support for plug-and-play significantly decreases the need for driver installations (Windows 2000/XP or above editions of OS).
