I bought this to first of all connect problem hard drives to my computer to try to recover data for friends. The beauty is that you can connect your own spare drive for day to day back up of your own data as well. With connections for both SATA and IDE as well as a cooling fan they pretty much have everything covered. Nice product.
My computer died and I saved the old hard drives, but they weren't compatible with my new computer. I saw this, wondered if it would work, and bought it.
It does exactly what it says it will do. I have been able to recover all my old files and, after reformatting the old drive, I use this as my backup for all my work.
This product delivered everything it promised. I'm using it to copy files from old drives to my new 1tb hard drive. It works flawlessly. No setup required. Just plug-and-play. Having the ability to do both ATA and SATA drive is a definete plus.
Eventually I'm going to use this as a back-up drive but right now I haven't even closed the case. I just keep switching between old drives.
Walmart delivered this product on time as promised. It was cheaper than Ebay, Amazon, Newegg, and Tigerdirect.
This unit can accomodate either IDE or SATA and has a cooling fan. Hard combination to find. This came with a small screwdriver just in case. Recommended
I really like the idea of the built in cooling fan. It is not loud. So, if your having issues with noise its probably your hard drive not the fan. The unit itself is kinda big, but no bigger than a standard external HD. Hard drive fits in tight, so be careful not to break anything. I used it temporarily to remove data from two 80GB HD's with no problems. I now have a 500GB Seagate Barracuda permanently installed. Its on most of the day and doesn't seem to get hot. The supplied USB cable is short. I replaced it with a 20' cord so it can be connected to my MacBook Pro even on the other side of the room.
I bought the Sabrent EC-UEIS7 USB hard drive enclosure first and foremost because it was an inexpensive enclosure with a cooling fan. For the price, you can't bet it. It worked right out of the box with the hard drive I have. I must note, there are no clear cut instructions for installing the hard drive. If this is your first time utilizing a hard drive enclosure you may want to Google the process for more detailed steps. In any case, if you're looking for a dependable enclosure for your IDE or SATA hard drive the Sabrent EC-UEIS7 is a great deal worth looking at.
Very good product. Good construction, good cooling!
This thing did not work right out of the box. I have over 10 years of experience in the computer industry, this certainly wasn't do to improper configuration or installation of the drive. Everything fit perfectly well and seemed well enough, but when I hit the power.. nothing.. I had to jiggle the plug and tweak it around until it finally clicked on. Once it came on, i couldn't get the USB or eSATA to recognize on my Windows 7 laptop, Windows Vista laptop, or on my Macbook Pro on OSX. I saw several other reviews of this thing acting the same way so I'm not surprised.
This was quickly returned to my local store for credit.. DO NOT BUY!
The Sabrent EC-UEIS7 hard drive enclosure didn't work at all. Very poor directions, but easily figured out. Drive was very cramped inside the case. I tried 2 hard drives that I knew were good. (I tried the enclosure with an XP SP3 PC and a Windows 7 laptop.) Unit powered up and drives spun up. PC/laptop didn't recognize that a new USB device was connected. I tried 2 USB cables that were known to be good. Tried the master, slave, and single jumper connections, but nothing worked. Neither the PC/laptop's Device Manager nor Disk Manager could see the drives. Unit was returned to Walmart.
I bought this because my old desktop overheated and fried the motherboard. It would have cost almost as much to have someone fix that as to buy one of the new Emachines desktops from Wal-Mart (mine was $398) which has Windows 7, tons of RAM and lot's of room on hard drive. Anyway, my old hard drive was still working fine (computer would not boot though) and had lot's pictures and other files on it. A techy type friend recommended getting an enclosure device and just using it as an external hard drive rather than trying to transfer all of my old pictures and files to the new computer. This thing was super easy to do even for me. I uncrewed the old hard drive, snapped it into the enclosure, screwed the case together and the it was plug and play as they say. Great value and super easy.
This item works great! I bought two, one to use with an old IDE drive, and the other with a new serial drive. They worked right out of the box, and are robust.
Used many external hard drive enclosures and this one has a great feature anyone can love, easy hard drive installation. Took out four screws on the side and "BAM" access to the drive.
very easy to use, works great
works with windows 7 64 bit. windows picked it up fast and is plug and play
Thie is a very nice product if you want to be able to swap out IDE and SATA hard drives to retrieve data. Both types of hard drives are supported and automatically recognized when connected and powered on. The enclosure can be used with USB or ESATA for faster copying of files.
Used to house a drive from a dead pc and though not used every day has done its job.
When our desktop died and we replaced the tower (another excellent WalMart purchase, by the way), we needed a way to get photos, videos, etc. off the old hard drive and onto the new one, but the new tower had no expansion bays. Then I spotted this device on Site-to-Store for under $30. It arrived inside a week, is actually more attractive than the pictures suggest, and is so easy to use. The drives are a bit snug in the case, but are easy to swap out, especially if you remove both sides to better manipulate the drives in and out. It was plug 'n play easy once attaced to the new computer, and it was a breeze go through files of the old hard drive and copy important items to the new computer. And now we can still use the old hard drive as a backup device. This thing was perfect! NOTE: You can only use the eSATA port on this device if the hard drive you place in it is the SATA type, and your computer also has an eSATA port. Otherwise, don't buy an eSATA cable since you won't be able to use it. Which is OK, since the USB works fine.
Inexpensive and does what it says. The fan is quiet, which is great.
Drive fits in case perfectly. Up and running in minutes using Windows 7. Very quiet. Might buy another
Thank you Walmart.
The large fan helps to keep whatever HD you put in quite cool (which helps service life). I've bought a few dozen of these (from various sources) and have never had a problem. Only downside: The stand isn't affixed firmly so moving the drive lets the stand fall off. I usually use a piece of packing tape to hold the stand on. Problem solved. :D
