Sabrent Portable Hard Drive Enclosure
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

One of the great things about Hard Drive Enclosures is their portability. Built with rugged cases and using standard USB cables you can take these little wonders just about anywhere. Don't forget with today's big desktop computers getting inside the structure of one is usually just a few push levers away.

Let me explain it another way by giving an example. I was planning a trip to see my family for a week, however I was right in the middle of a major project. I literally had hundreds of files and I didn't want to just stop all together for a week. I thought about transferring files to some sort of data device that could handle 3 gigs of data and I could just use my laptop, but again, that was a lot of files. I thought about emailing it all to myself, but that sure would have been a pain. In-the-end, I settled on a Hard Drive Enclosure.

It was perfect!

I got one that could handle a Sata drive and I just turned off my desktop and opened it up. Took out my hard drive and put it in the Hard Drive Enclosure. My laptop didn't have a eSata connection so I used the USB. I connected it to my laptop and it was recognized and I now had the fully data from my main desktop hard drive connected to my little laptop. Yep, it was that easy.

Everything went fine accept I didn't really get any work done anyway... lol... as I spent most of my time visiting, but still, you can see the viability of using a Sata Hard Drive Enclosure as a portable device. Once I got back home, I just put the drive back in the desktop and the desktop didn't even noticed.

I realize there are lots of enclosures on the market now-a-day, but you have to be selective as all are not built with the same ruggedness or quality. The particular portable hard drive enclosure I used was the Sabrent 3.5" SATA IDE Hard Drive Enclosure with a fan. This enclosure was perfect for my uses and is quite sturdy with a quality design and structure. The device is soundly built. It came with all the accessories I needed to use it effectively. Well, if my laptop would have had a eSata connection then the connector that comes with the drive would have been a little too short, but other than that you are good to go.
