Here's a nifty little 2.5" HDD external enclosure. Put your own drive in, then throw some .ISO files on there and you can then select the ISO file from the onboard LCD screen and buttons. Then plug the device into a PC via USB and the PC will see it as a CD-Drive with that ISO up and running. (Basically it pretends to be a CD-ROM drive)

This is perfect if you re-install PC's, or can't be bothered to burn CD's or USB keys for Linux distributions or other similar activiities. The drive also acts as a standard USB External HDD also.

Seems pretty smart .. may be more pricey than a usual enclosure but way more useful if you do this sort of thing often and will pay for itself in saved time alone!

But you obviously have no idea what this is.

Although personally, I'd rather buy a load of memory sticks and keep my windows disks on them instead (made bootable), obviously that depends on what you're using this for though.


That's what I currently do at the moment just make my flash drives (or external hard drives) bootable.
Which come to think of it is a more cost effective option. Using the multiboot iso method from pendrive linux you can more or less do the same basic functions as this enclosure (load up multiple iso's onto your drive and boot whichever one you won't from the grub boot loader).

Think I'll resist the temptation and hang onto my cash for now, still a nice little device though!

Nice idea but the price is pretty ridiculous, not voting.
#8
lm going to keep a eye out for more traders to get them dont like buying a item with one place selling them they can use any markup on the price thy can get away with

good concept but will hold back for more suppliers
#9
I love the idea. But a little too much for me to justify it.
#10
Mine arrived next day delivery, and includes a neat/strong travel case, and tool to open it if you choose to go with your own hard disk. Easy setup. Already proving very handy. Heat given.

So this a year or two back and liked the idea then.

Think I'll buy one now, as I'm currently using too many pendrives and dvds for this.
This will replace them all with one device.

linitx will sell you this enclosure with a 320gb drive in for £83
