Not the same caddies.

This one does look gooooooooood. Hot.

been meaning to get one of these for my spare drive for ages. thanks op.

Would this be hub powered?

Edit: Sorry, ignore me, it is. I think I may just get one of these as I'll be looking to add a second usb disk to my NAS at some point.

Am I right in saying this would be compatible with my old PS3 drive?

Hot. I've got a 20GB drive from my Xbox 360 lying about after I swapped it out for a 120GB. Get your PS3 drive slung into one.

Yup.

thanks ,HOT,HOT,just what i needed

I bought one of these enclosures (black) from Play and it arrived yesterday. I had replaced the 120GB HD in my MacBook with a 500GB one which I got from eBuyer and I didn't want to waste the old HD. It took about five minutes to fit the old HD into its new enclosure and 'hey presto' I now have a 120GB external HD for about £7. Not a bad deal in my opinion.
Voted hot. :thumbsup:

Does this come with an mini-USB to USB cable?

DealExtreme do a 2.5'' for approx £3.10: dealextreme.com/det…999
I know the DE one takes longer and is average quality but am only suggesting an alternative.

Black now out of stock :x

Never mind - no good for a desktop drive then!

I know that I am leaving myself open to abuse now but..........

I am guessing that I get one of these, buy any normal SATA internal drive, and I have an external drive for a fraction of the price?

Is that right?

Do I need to be aware of anything else?

Is this made of molded plastic or aluminum?

They're a bit more than "a fraction of the price". Hardly worth it.

Wicked, just ordered the black one, gonna use my old ps3 drive...:thumbsup:

Yeah, I agree, if you dont already have a drive kicking about for example if you've upgraded your PS3 drive, its better to just get an external drive as it will be better made. I managed to get a compact Iomega 250GB drive for £40.00 from Tesco, still good for all those drives that are currently sitting in peoples drawers!!

Needs to be a 2.5" (laptop drive) rather than a 3.5" desktop drive, laptop drives tend to cost a bit more, so may be better buying an external drive outright f you dont already have a drive...

******, both black and whote now seem to be oos :-(

Not having a go, but I bought one of these a few months back. Its sitting on my desk gathering dust as its completely useless; too slow for any serious file transferring, and I could only get it to work on my own PC (didnt work on office PC/mac, nor other home computers), so using it as a mobile device was pointless.

Does this come with an mini-USB to USB cable?


Yes (the green one I bought from Play last week did anyway)

is it just the one usb cable that splits into two??

'Usually dispatched within 4-5 days' - not a terrible wait. It's in stock on amazon, but for £7.55 (can be delivered tomorrow with Prime account)

heat added, thanks

Does anyone know where I can get a similar one for a 3.5" drive?

i have one and they are cheap and nasty, but well worth the money if you have a spare hd like i did, so heat added good find

only pink left in stock

Been telling myself I'd get one for a while now, but I was getting confused as to which one was right, this one looks pretty good!

I actually bought that exact same one around 8 months ago. Not a single problem so far. So far It has worked on every PC I have tried. The slow speed could be due to your HDD as well.
They could have made the USB cable slightly longer but overall, I would give it 4.5/5.

Does this have an external power supply?

No, it's USB powered as it's a [laptop] 2.5" sized hard drive enclosure.

Only 'desktop [3.5"] drives need an external mains powered source.

Will these run a Hitachi Travelstar HD i have out of a defunct laptop? Looking at the measurements it seems my drive is wider than the Enclosure.

Thx for any advice
