IOGEAR ION USB 2.0 Drive Enclosure

http://www.iogear.com/main.php?loc=product&Item=GHE225U

You may recall my recent do-it-yourself external drive project. Jason Dunn at Digital Media Thoughts has done something similar with a more portable drive casing. If you’ve got a spare 2.5-inch drive laying around, or want to take one with you for extra space, check out Jason’s review and photos on building the drive, and then go pick up this USB 2.0 only case instead. As Jason points out, when you’re building a drive with size in mind, lugging around extra cables just won’t do. The IOGEAR ION USB Drive Enclosure makes smart use of space by pigging backing it’s powersource on the USB bus instead of requiring extra AC power and bunch of bulky cables. If FireWire is a requirement (which it is for my own full sized drives) the combo case will have to do. I may get one to make use of a small 20GB drive I’ve got collecting dust in a drawer.
