ICON Loading...

Turn a standard 2.5-inch Parallel ATA hard drive into a portable USB 2.0 storage device in minutes with the Bytecc HD-201U2 aluminum external enclosure. The silver aluminum casing is a great heatsink, to keep the drive cool during operation and help dissipate heat quickly when you're done.

Once you've installed a hard drive inside this slim enclosure (it measures 80x15x143 mm), you simply connect the bundled Mini USB-to-USB 2.0 cable between the drive and your computer. There's no external power necessary either, since the drive gets its power from your computer. A full manual and user guide is included on CD as is a leather wallet to store the drive in while it's not in use.

  • newegg Support 2.5-inch Hard Drives The BYTECC HD-201U2 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 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).

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect

Pros: Great Case! stay's cool. I use it like a flash drive and a Time Machine backup drive. The pouch that comes with it is nice to have too. Awesome quality for the price and free shipping! I heart newegg.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I meant to buy a SATA based case but it's okay because I had an old IDE HDD I stuck in here.

4 out of 5 eggsI Guess You're Just What I Needed

Pros: I've had a couple different hard drive carriers; this one is every bit as nice if not nicer than any other. Maybe a little more durable than some. The price was good for the value as far as I was concerned.

Cons: I don't have a SSD to put in it?

Other Thoughts: Anyone who has problems with this sort of thing is a klutz.

2 out of 5 eggsTiny Screws foul the whole thing up

Pros: It does what it's supposed to do.

Cons: There is one glaring mishap in the design of this thing: There are two tiny screws, philips head, that require a tiny screw driver to open, before you can use the device. Now, I put computers together often, I take out parts often, and I probably have that one tiny screw driver sitting around for doing minute computer work, but... I only have one of them... most people only have one or two at the most, it's not a common tool, it serves almost no purpose other than fixing eye glasses. So, for the love of G.o.d., Why would this product be made requiring a TINY SCREW DRIVER to unscrew these screws.

THe device is not useable without said screw driver, you can't open it to put the HDD in. Also, we all know that these things are usually 98% functional WITHOUT putting the HDD into the encasing. SO WHY on EARTH to they lock the contents of this thing with two screws that are stripped completely.

WHY HEAVENS WHY!?

Other Thoughts: Summarized in "cons."

3 out of 5 eggsnot impressive

Pros: cheap. multi-color led is a plus. does what it is supposed to do, which is hold a 2.5" HDD. Fairly easy install procedure. This is fine if you are never going to change HDDs and for occasional home usage due to poorly designed and bulky 'carrying case'.

Cons: cheap looking silver-painted case...looks like silver-painted plastic. Carrying case doesn't have room for usb cable, yet is 'padded' so it is bulky(I hate that...what is the point of a carrying case if it doesn't hold all the needed items! and then is bulky!). Lame 'shock absorbing' heat resistant foam that needs to be permanently stuck(peel off the white adhesive cover!) to the HDD, meaning this is not for you if you switch hdds...ever! I suppose if you are skilled, you could attach the pad to the inside of the enclosure, but that is not what the instructions say. Not a toolless design, but no mini screw driver included

Other Thoughts: I like the rosewill rx81u better...it is slightly better designed and much better looking...and the carrying case also hols the usb cable!!!
