What makes the Firewire 3.5 High Speed Enclosure work?

Firewire ciruit

Don't let other manufacturer claims fool you, this circuit was specifically designed for increased performance, it is one of a kind!
The circuit is what drives the performance of the Firewire 3.5 High Speed hard drive enclosure. This circuit was specially designed with Cypress technology to control and improve on drive performance. Tests show the drive's enhanced performance has increased 15% over other enclosures 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.

The enclosure components assemble as though you would be installing a new hard drive into your PC with power and ribbon connectors connected to their respective ports. A series of short 10 second videos have been produced to show the ease of assembly.

Firewire 3.5 inch High Speed Enclosure Testimonial

I didn't need my background in electronics to help me with this device! If you've got a screwdriver and are knowledgable about ESD ("Electrostatic Discharge" making sure you and the device are grounded when handling electronic devices) you'll be done in 5 to 10 minutes. The Firewire 3.5 High Speed Enclosure assembly 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!
