well just researched and found out i have to figure in alot of other things if im gnna get an external enclosure.
This is what the connectors for External SATA look like:
Cons: Nevermind the rather flimsy materials and design as I would have overlooked them had the unit actually lived up to it's description.
The supplied SATA cable and the SATA interface on the unit DO NOT conform to "EXTERNAL" SATA standards. They are simple internal connectors, not suitable for external use.
Well some enclosures are supposidely not for external hot plug use, according to this guy.
Physical Characteristics of an External SATA interface are as follows:
1.The External connector has no â€œLâ€ shaped key, and the guide features are vertically offset and reduced in size. This prevents the use of unshielded internal cables in external applications.
Dont know about this l shape or what i should look for on this? can someone help?
Could be quieter. If attaching to SATA-150 then included cable is ok. If attaching to e-SATA the included cable is worthless.
What is e-sata?
