Legacy only...for spare parts
This review is from: BYTECC ME-940F Aluminum 2.5" 1394 External Enclosure
Pros: Made use of my IEEE 1394 port on my older Dell Laptop. I can use an old 2.5" IDE drive to make a System Recovery backup and drive image. Works great on a Mac with no additional power required beyond the FireWire cable.
Cons: IDE interface: do you have an old laptop hard drive laying around that would be good for a backup? Comes with a PS/2-style interface for the power adapter; does not work with PS/2-to-USB adapter.
Other Thoughts: I tried two other ways to connect this via USB. Either would not power up, or freaked out with too much v/mA. Once I connected the PS/2 adapter to my unused connector on a desktop, it finally powered up properly. Then I connect the full-size 1394 on the drive to the mini-1394 on my Dell laptop, and it saw the drive. I am running a backup and then putting it away, so it is not a terrible inconvenience.
