Hello Skooter Blog readers. Today I present a Case for external HD 2.5″ SSK SHE066-F vermelho – Solution for mobile storage (SSK SHE066-F 2.5″ SATA External Enclosure Mobile Storage Solution/Hard Drive Case (Red)) acquired on FocalPrice.
This almost serves to external hard drives of 2.5″ (laptop) com interface SATA, so that they can be connected to any computer or other equipment using the USB port. I bought it initially to recover data from a hard drive of a laptop that has had no defect and repair. Then I bought an Element Zogis for him, so that Case for external HD 2.5″ SSK SHE066-F vermelho ended up being used with the 80GB HD I picked my Playstation 3 (replaced by a Seagate Momentus 500GB).
The Case for external HD 2.5″ SSK SHE066-F vermelho – Solution for mobile storage is manufactured by Chinese Social Security, and the model is SHE066-F, that among the key features that caught my attention is the support function auto sleep, in other words, this case is able to disconnect the HDD to save power when it is not being accessed, and turn it back on when any access is made. This function is common in several external hard drives factory, como o Seagate FreeAgent Go Flex, Toshiba Canvio, WD MyBook, among others. Mas in the cases for HD, almost no support this function, Therefore the Case for external HD 2.5″ SSK SHE066-F vermelho is a notable exception.

The specification supports HDDs up to 500GB 500GB because it probably was placed would be the maximum size of 2.5 HDDs″. Today we have 1TB HDDs and up to 1.5 TB. I do not think there would be restrictions on the use of them in hardware Case for external HD 2.5″ SSK SHE066-F vermelho, mas to make sure just testing it.
Backing up with a key depends on specific software that should have come on a CD with Case for external HD 2.5″ SSK SHE066-F vermelho according to the manual, but this was not the case. The software can also be downloaded from the website Social Security, but neither went after it because I have no interest in using their backup solution. For anyone interested, their software also offers the possibility to create a “secure partition” (probably encrypted).
The lock write protection does not depend on software, just drive it and installed HDD can only be read, without a possibility of recording. It, finally, or so auto sleep really works and off HD, getting standby, whenever there is a period of inactivity, and it also does not depend on software.
The box Case for external HD 2.5″ SSK SHE066-F vermelho comes across in Chinese, except for the product name: “2.5” External Enclosure / Mobile Storage Solution”. Inside we find the case and USB cable that offers two connectors on one end, being a connector for additional power if the PC's USB port can not provide enough power to the HD work properly. There is also a beautiful velvet pouch which fits the case and USB cable. Furthermore, box also found the manual in Chinese and English and screws to secure the HDD to the case and to hold the lid of the case, and comes 4 Parafusos extras (2 each type of).
The Case for external HD 2.5″ SSK SHE066-F vermelho cover has aluminum to facilitate heat dissipation and has a very good aesthetics. The sides are plastic, one of them has some openings for ventilation, and the other is the backup button, key to disable writing, or USB connector, an activity LED that glows green when the case is on, and orange during activity of writing / recording. Furthermore, there is an additional jack for connecting an external 5V DC optional, I think it would only be necessary in extreme cases where even two USB ports were not able to supply enough power to the HDD.
In the inner plate is an inscription with the model F-SHE066 and date 23/07/2009, I believe to be the date of revision. The chip is a major GL830, chip manufacturing Genesys Logic that serves precisely to bridge between SATA and USB.
The Case for external HD 2.5″ SSK SHE066-F vermelho should work without drivers for all versions of Windows, I tested here in Windows 7 from 64 bits and it worked perfectly.
As a buy, was made in 25/01/2011, but was only sent in 15/02/2011, probably due to the Chinese New Year where, despite FocalPrice have stopped for a few days, suppliers even stop for weeks. There is no tracking code to be buying less than $20 USD (U.S. dollars two) and I chose to not pay for screening. The package in chegoUSDqui 04/04/2011 and was not taxed. The description of the packet is a traditional “Electronics”, declared weight 300 programs and declared value $12 USD, slightly below the real value, as é $14,30 USD, but I paid only $11,30 USD by third cupons accrued prior purchases. Undoubtedly a cost-effective.
