I bought this to put a legacy Western Digital 320GB drive into, which has been running nicely for over a week now.

I chose this case as the USB and Firewire hubs meant I didn't need to plug even more hardware (and power supplies) in as well as the drive, and I'm planning of hooking up more drives to this system in future. I'd loved to have seen a firewired and USB port on the front of this, but given the snug fit of a 3.5" drive I think that might have been asking for a miracle!

The case is well built, and well designed, though the top is a bit poor compared to the rest of the build, once your mac mini is on top that's no longer an issue. The aluminium finish is slightly different, but I can live with that - the blue centralisedLED makes it look suitable different from the mini styling anyway.

I like the inclusion of thermal detection on the drive to help with fan usage, and the fact that the drive tray is a solidly built aluminum heatsink and the fan in the case is quiet at full speed (quieter than my Mac Pro anyway).

My only problem with it is the price. Currently Lacie are offering an similar item, with a 500GB drive, for £169. Which makes it cheaper that buying this + a 500GB mechanism (especially once you add postage). If this case was £50+VAT it would be the perfect competitor. I opted for this as I already had a 320Gb mechanism I wanted to use, but if I was buying from scratch I'd opt for the Lacie unit. This case might well be better built than the Lacie unit however, and Lacie usually opt for Maxtor mechanisms which I've had a _lot_ of problems with in the past, so this work out ok.

When the MacPower M9-DX arrived it originally had no power cable, span sorted that in 24 hours.
I wanted the new sata version, but it still isnt available yet, but i needed the extra storage now for my mac mini.

I have to say the maxtor ide (which macpower recomend) was a really tight fit, infact it was such a tight fit, it carved lines into the plastic on the inside of the case, and slightly warped the shape of the case, so when you place the tupaware(lol it really is) top on the case it doesnt fit perfectly.

so why am I giving this product a good rating?

well its meant to be stacked under a mac mini so once you do that you dont notice the flaws, and everything else works great, I would say the coloured plastic isnt quite the same tone as the mac mini, but its close enough.

on a final note this device is designed to turn itself off if it isnt connected to a powered usb port, which is a nice touch
