When it comes to 2.5” HDD enclosures there usually isn’t much difference in use, you plug them in do your stuff, then unplug them. Really it comes down to the features. Some are made to be stream lined but don’t have a built in USB cable so you need to pack one when ever you take it anywhere, while some do have said cable but it’s too short to be of any use. Well that’s about to change, introducing the Eagle Tech Consus P-Series 2.5” HDD Enclosure has a built in USB cable that can actually reach further than half an inch. Well enough talking let’s take a closer look at this product:Product Provided By: Eagle Tech
As far as the packaging for the Eagle Tech Eagle Tech Consus P-Series 2.5” HDD Enclosure is concerned it follows the template of the rest of the Eagle Tech products I have seen. It is bright and flashy and has a nice window right in front in order to see the product without even opening the box. I know that to some this might not seem like a big thing but I really appreciate the effort to not just put a glamour shot of the product but to actually see the product first hand. The front of the box has a few features and also clearly displays the main feature of this enclosure, its USB Cable.
The back of the box displays all of the specs and features of this handy little enclosure. Unfortunately the box got me exited in that it displays the e SATA model and lists them under the features but if you look closely you see that the use this package for both, the USB 2.0 and the USB 2.0/ e SATA so make sure you got what you wanted before opening.
The Eagle Tech Consus P-Series 2.5” HDD Enclosure itself is made of aluminum and feels very solid once it has a hard drive installed. This model is compatible with SATA hard drives, this model the ET-CS2PSU2-BK works with hard drives up to 320 GB, and as mentioned has a built in USB cable that is actually useful. The Eagle Tech Consus P-Series 2.5” HDD Enclosure is also compatible with both Windows and Macs.
Included with the Eagle Tech Consus P-Series 2.5” HDD Enclosure is a driver disk and an USB extension cable which I find almost pointless as that is the whole point of the built in cable, but whatever it’s a free USB extension.
What’s on the included disk you ask? Well on the disk are a few simple utilities that some might find useful. On the disk is; a 30 day trial of VMware Workstation 6, Disk Doctors Data Recovery, avast! AntiVirus Home Edition, and Adobe Acrobat Reader. Also on the disk is a direct link to there products, reviews, etc.
