Don't let other manufacturer claims fool you, this circuit
was specifically designed for increased performance, it is
of a kind!
circuit is what drives the performance of the Firewire
3.5 ieee 1394 High Speed hard drive enclosure. This circuit
was specially designed
technology to control and improve on drive performance. Tests show
the drive's enhanced performance has increased 15% over
giving you the speed and efficiency for large file transfers.
Example: a 60 gig HDD with 6.7 gig of
information equal to 64,647 files and 4,419 folders had
an average file transfer
time of over 300 MB/min. A full duplication of the drive
took 17 minutes.
enclosure components assemble as though you would be installing
a new hard drive into
and ribbon connectors connected to their respective ports.
A series of short 10 second videos have
been produced to show the ease of assembly.

need my background
in electronics to help me with this device! If you've
got a screwdriver and are knowledgable about ESD
Discharge" making sure you and the device are
grounded when handling electronic devices) you'll
in 5 to 10 minutes. The Firewire 3.5
was extremely easy to assemble and set up. Running
Windows XP I didn't need to install any drivers,
the new large capacity drive was recognized right
away. In my testing I duplicated my own hard drive
which has 6.7 gig of data on it. I was amazed to
find that it only took about 17 minutes to duplicate
the entire drive, at its fastest it was copying data
at 421 MB.min with 64,647 files and 4,419 folders.
This is a great tool to have, imagine taking a large
capacity hard drive from one computer to another
to transfer data
or make it part of your system. Or make it a back-up
drive to travel with, in case your current drives
crashes, as we all know, this happens at times.
The Firewire 3.5 High Speed enclosure is a definite
must for managing large capacity drives externally
from your PC or laptop. I certaily recommend it!
