Checked their website, and it looks like its a plastic outer shell.
Cant confirm, but it looks like it, and no mention on any sites.
If your using it for any amount of time, i cant see that doing it any good.

what on earth is wrong with it having a plastic casing? All external case are plastic lol

I'm just quite picky.

And pretty much all hard drive enclosures are aluminium.
Only ones that arent are the ready-made external drives. (ie a caddy with a drive already in it)
Aluminium is used for heat dissipation purposes.

Comparing this to the WD Mybooks, the Western Digitals have more airspace and vents in them.

Occasional use then to be honest it wont really matter.
If your leaving it plugged in permanently then id prefer something cooler

thanks, great find

Thanks hengtian

Still around....

Gonna Buy

I'm starting to get annoyed because 6 months ago I ran out of hd space and decided to store all my tv shows on DVD's.

Now I wish I'd have waited because of the recent drop in hd space, I guess you win some you lose some.

Take it from someone who recently experience the pain of external drive failure - You DEFINITELY want to keep secondary backups on DVD anyway. It's a real pain. Last week my HD worked one minute then decided it was no longer formatted the next :w00t: I reckon its been used for less than 100 hrs since I got it in Sept....
