I had a Toshiba external hdd that turned up its toes and I thought the data had gone for ever (transfers of home videos). Following postings on this site I took the tosh case apart and pulled out the hard disk. I bought one of these the other week, slipped the hard disk in,and bingo, it came back to life, all data intact. For the price of these units the build quality is amazing - not as sleek or cool as a Mybook or a LaCie brick, but solid, well-built and effective. They even throw in a screwdriver. And don't pay too much attention to buyers' comments about fan noise - I can barely hear mine...

This looks like an OK price but there is a better option. You can buy a hard drive caddy for about the same price and they are available for both IDE and SATA drives. With the caddy the transfer speeds are much faster and there are no write errors. The docking bay remains in your PC and the removable caddy is much smaller to store than the USB unit, power adapter and cables. My son has also fitted one to his PC and he is similarly impressed. I no longer use my USB unit because the caddy is much better. It’s funny because the caddy is not a new idea but the USB unit has become fashionable even though it's inferior in many ways.

The trouble with these 'internal' caddies (I've one too, but there's nothing important on it) is there's a greater chance for the hard drive to get damaged due to some problem in the host computer. In other words, the hard drive in your system could get damaged & take the drive in the caddy with it. In a similar event, a USB external drive will remain undamaged.

Most internal caddies will also have heat issues & are less convenient for moving data (the host machine has to have one of these too!). So the USB unit is not 'inferior in many ways' - quite the opposite really. The only thing going for an internal caddy is it's price & speed to some extent. But for backups & data safety those aren't real advantages.

I have never read anything to suggest that the drive in the caddy would be damaged if the main drive were to fail.

The caddy has two fans and neither I nor my son has had any problem with heat.

For a large backup, the speed of the transfer and lack of write errors is really valuable.

Having used both I would trust the caddy far more than the USB plug-in arrangement.

Depends on what you wanna use it for. You could share this box by using a router or device with a USB sharing port. Thus you don't need to have your computer on to stream movies etc from it to a media player or similar (like my WD TV live).
