Sarotech Cutie DX FHD-254UK Pocket Hard Disk Drive
This cutie is a pretty-looking aluminum box with gray plastic cover pieces on the sides. The exterior design utilizes a combination of glossy as well as matte surfaces. The inserted drive is fixed in place with a plastic lock inside the container. On the back panel you will find a USB port, power connector, Write On/Off switch, and a Backup button (which is used in combination with the Intellistor software). Note that this enclosure has an additional power connector, so if the drive doesn’t get enough power from one USB port, you can make use of one more power channel. We didn’t have to use the additional power cable, though, as our drive was quite satisfied with the amount of power it received through the interface cable.
There are two LED indicators on the top panel of the case. The green one indicates the container is connected to the computer; the red LED reports that some disk operations are being performed.
The enclosure supports the USB 2.0 interface; its dimensions are 126 x 75 x 17mm and it weighs 95g.
With this enclosure you also receive some screws to fasten the drive, a user manual, a driver installation manual, an interface USB cable, a power USB cable, a transportation pouch, a CD with drivers and the data-backup Intellistor software, and a screwdriver. We were very pleased to find the last item among the accessories because you do need one to make the enclosure ready to work, but not all of us are as practical as to have a screwdriver at hand. A nice touch is that the screwdriver’s tip is magnetized for an easier handling of such tiny screws as the ones included.
The average retail price of this enclosure is $35.
