The enclosure is smaller than I thought it would be, and that's a good thing. The less desk space I have to give up, the better. The interchangeable front bezel is a nice touch and not something seen very often on external enclosures. Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems are all supported.

 

PRODUCT COMPOSITION



Current online pricing for this product is around $35 US. For a dual-bay enclosure that's a great price. We'll see if it holds up against some of the higher priced competitors during this review.



No hard drives are included with my review sample, but it is possible to buy this enclosure with drives already installed. Accessories included are a power adapter, USB 2.0 cable, resource CD, and an additional front bezel. The manual is easy to follow and full of color photos that walk you through installation step by step.
