easy-to-use, low-cost, good item 10/7/2012 8:56:45 AM

Pros: Easy to set up. Firewire connection = bootable start-up drive on a Mac, A good way to get use of an old IDE drive. Durable aluminum case conducts and dissipates heat.

Cons: Absurdly bright "on/activity" LED light on case (cover with a dot of black tape & it's still bright enough). Case is a little larger than some, but obvious durability offsets this.

Overall Review: One of the very few IDE drive, firewire, bootable enclosure options available. In my opinion, the best choice of this combination of parameters.

Never a problem 3/6/2012 1:04:57 PM

Pros: Small and solid with good heat dissipation. Firewire or USB. Rubber cushioning keeps it from sliding around on the desktop.

Cons: None really, but gosh that blue LED is bright.

Overall Review: I have two of these and use them weekly to clone the drives on two iMacs. They get warm but not hot. I've carried them around in a laptop bag and never had a problem with them. If I needed another one I'd buy without hesitation.

Great Product. Great service. 12/16/2011 7:50:02 AM

Comments: We (my wife) fried our PowerBook last week. I order this enclosure from Newegg yesterday and got it today. It's 10:00AM and I already have the hard drive installed and viewable on our newer MacBook, via the firewire port. It opens and transfers nearly as fast as the internal drive! Great Product. Most excellent service. Thank you Newegg! Thank you Macally! And thank you ifixit.com for showing me how to safely rip apart my old laptop.

Gave life to my old iBook HDD 6/13/2011 1:34:03 AM

Comments: Upgraded my old iBook G4 hard drive, put my old drive into this case and set up a bootable version of OSX Leopard. I use it for testing / rebuilding old legacy macs. Perfect enclosure for this job.

Outdated but Excellent Extern HD Case 3/17/2011 2:46:50 PM

Pros: Supports USB 1.1/2.0 and Firewire
Sturdy feel and look to the case, built out of aluminum

Cons: Obsolete now (as of 2011)
HDs today are no longer IDE

Overall Review: I have a number of old HDs that are still functional and reliable, but my new computer and laptop don't support IDE HDs anymore. This product is great for me to utilize them. I like the Firewire port on this extern case as it allows me to connect it with my old Mac, which has the old USB 1.1--too slow--and FireWire 400--good enough for transferring files.
