I bought this enclosure to house a 2.5" SATA HD to use as a backup for my MacBook Pro whilst mobile. Consequently I wanted Firewire 800 both to match the Mac and provide it's power without the necessity for an external mains adapter. It comes with two Firewire 800, one Firewire 400, one mini-USB and one 5v power socket. There are FW800 and USB leads but no mains adapter.
It works perfectly on FW800 and with it's aluminium finish it matches the Mac too. Surprisingly when I tried it, it worked on USB as well, even without a power adapter which I assumed it would need, so I'm not sure quite why the 5v socket is provided. However, since I only wanted the FW800 that doesn't bother me anyway. The leads are just the right length, reasonably short which again is what you need when mobile. It even has an off/on switch which is great since you can leave it connected but unseen by the MacBook Pro when you don't require it, and without having the HD spinning. When switched on it powers up and connects quickly, and although it gets warm as expected without a fan, the cooling fins seem to control the temperature and in the short time I've had it, I've had no trouble withe 500GB 5,400 rpm HD I have in it. When it is on, a blue light is visible through the gap by the fins, so although there is no visible warning light in the casing it does actually have a light to tell you when it is on. All in all a great product that does what it is supposed to be and looks good too. The only thing missing is a soft case to carry it in, which would be useful when carrying it to stop it scratching or being scratched.

When this arrived I was very impressed. It came with FW800, FW400 and USB 2 cable. The build quality of the box itself is fantastic. Pure aluminium - feels very sturdy and the screws to hold the drive in place are on both the side and the bottom so it is secured against vertical and lateral movement. It looks fantastic too. Performance is fine - my hard drive runs much faster than it did in its old USB2 enclosure (I'm using FW800 now).

If you're a Mac owner, then this enclosure is brilliant. Two Firewire 800 ports which allow you to daisy chain drives all on Firewire 800. (Many drives only give you a single 800 and a single 400). I was so impressed with this enclosure that I've bought a second one, and I've not needed any external power supply. It works fine with my Mac Mini straight from the box. All cables are provided and it's very well protected and packaged. When it arrives, note the tiny on/off switch on the back, which is set to off by default. It's easy to assemble and when it's all connected up, remember to switch it on. When powered on, it has a blue light on the front, which is shielded and just the right brightness. I don't know what else I can say other than it's brilliant and by far the best enclosure I've bought.
