Agestar USB Portable Hard Disk Box IUB201
This is one of the lightest and smallest containers in this review. The thin-walled aluminum case is colored red or rather a deep pink color and exactly matches the dimensions of a 2.5” hard disk drive. The container is only a bit longer than the drive because of the interface connector. The drive slides into the container with some difficulty – you have to literally pull the box down on the drive. The container consists of two snap-together parts without any screw connections, so the assembly procedure is as simple as it can possibly be. On the back panel of the case there is a mini-USB port and a LED-based operation indicator. Additional power was not needed for our hard drive (a Seagate ST910021A) to work normally.
The container supports the USB 2.0 interface. It comes with a leather transportation pouch, interface USB cable (with an additional USB connector on one side to receive power from another USB port when necessary), user manual, and mini-CD.
The average retail price of this HDD enclosure is $10.
