SYBA SY-ADA24027 Network Adapter 10/ 100Mbps USB 2.0 1 x RJ45

2 out of 5 eggs Overheating Issue after 1 month use 02/23/2014

This review is from: SYBA SY-ADA24027 Network Adapter 10/ 100Mbps USB 2.0 1 x RJ45

Pros: When its working, it works well.

Cons: Overheats and then stops working. Resumes working after a cool down period. This issue popped up after around a month of use. Considering the housing is plastic there is no good way to get heat out of the part.

Other Thoughts: Buy something else.

ICY DOCK MB559U3S-1S Aluminum / Plastic 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Very high quality and well made. I'm actually surprised this does not cost a lot more. eSATA & USB cables supplied are very heavy and high quality.
USB 2.0 compliant in addition to USB3.0. eSATA I believe is SATA II compliant. Works without any required drivers(USB2.0 on XP, have not tried anything else yet)

Cons: Cooling ability is questionable. They have vents in the top if you set it vertically, but opportunity for cold air to get in from underneath is uncertain... I thnk some minor airflow might be possible but it also might be worthwhile to drill a couple holes near the bottom of the housing when mounted vertically to assist with cooling.

5 out of 5 eggs Great Product!! 12/15/2011

This review is from: acomdata HDEXXUP-240 Aluminum 2.5" Black SATA USB 2.0 Enclosure Kit

Pros: Great product design! Very small.... you really couldn't make it any smaller... it just fits a 2.5" drive and a tiny circuit board that was attached to the enclosure cover. Assembly was Fast! Two screws hold it together and the circuit board connector plugs right into the drive. Really an outstanding product. Housing feels like metal and I believe that it is. Comes with a USB cable and all connectors fit well. The enclosure also has a small indicator LED on the front that blinks to show activity and stays on solid to show it has power.

Cons: My only thought would be how does heat transfer from the drive to the outside?(maybe this is not necessary, I do not know) There appears to be no thermal path in the design to get heat out as far as I can tell. That said, I ran this drive for a good hour or so doing some formatting and I could not feel any warmth from the housing.... although I think there is a small air gap between the housing and drive so its kinda insulated a bit. Its possible that some parts of the drive may rest on the inside of the housing... not completely sure on that... I didn't take a lot of time to examine it.

Other Thoughts: Don't even listen to other reviewers complaining about tiny screws. I had no problem... literally it took seconds to assemble my drive into this enclosure. So easy! Yes, the screws are small.... but your basic watch-size screw driver set will do the job. If you try to use an over-sized screw driver... well what do you expect?
