Kingwin External Drive Enclosures ReviewPosted on 2004-07-19 13:03:07 by LSDsmurf
The first time I ever set my eye on an external enclosure I thought it was a pretty neat idea, but with the majority of them being USB 1.0 with very immature drivers, I knew that the idea was questionable. Today its a completely different story, but the interesting part about it is how seldom external enclosures are sought after, but people pick up 5400 rpm, and super-slow CD burners that are proprietary external USB devices, which can cost twice as much money as an IDE component, and an external enclosure. Perhaps enclosures are overlooked due to the overall look and design, or more than likely, the people that purchase external devices don't want to bother with the assembly required to put an IDE device into an enclosure. Yeah that's probably it, I mean four screws, and a ribbon cable can be extremely difficult compared to just plug it in and go. Well luckily ClubOC is surrounded by enthusiasts that know better, and when it comes to having an external drive, you haven't seen anything that looks as good as these enclosures from Kingwin.
