Is this a good price?
Any similar price products for IDE drives?

Shame about minimum £3.59 postage costs :-(

I wanted to buy it last week but it was £14.99.
I'm looking for something else to but to have minimum £50 for free shipping.

Now free delivery has ended not such a hot deal.

I was lucky enough to get this recently for £9.99 with free postage from eBuyer and it seems to work really well.

sorry for the noob-ish question. This device allows me to plug in an internal drive and use it as an external drive???

If so can i just leave it plugged in? Is it not going to be an issue that the drive is exposed?

Thanks in advance

You could do but i wouldnt recomend it.

The drive doesn't lie flat and its not really a permanent solution. You could though!

The Hard Drives in my NAS drive are vertical, so not convinced that lying them flat is necessary?
Also, some older desktop IBM conputers had vertically mounted drives.
As for being exposed, I would have thought that this could aid cooling, rather than being cooped up in a warm PC case - Just my opinion of course

anyone found any power drop issues on this unit when a hdd attached?

Hard drives do not have to be horizontal. I have 6 drives that are on their sides in external enclosures with no issues - in fact all the sumvizion caddies are sideways mounting for the HDDs.

This is also the reason why a portable harddrive will continue to work even if you constantly changes its orientation whilst being written to or read from.

Many mainstream systems use vertical mounting for hard drives such as the Dell Vostro 200/400.

good price, shipping cost is a pitty though
