Ultra Stackables - IDE HDD Enclosure

The IDE HDD enclosure holds a standard 3.5" hard drive and literally takes about 1 minute to install from start to finish. This enclosure features USB 2.0 connections as well as 1394 (Firewire) connections, so you have options for hooking it up to your system.

There isn't much about this drive enclosure to mention, its pretty standard, but is designed to easily stack onto other Ultra Stackables products, or can stand alone thanks to the included feet.
