Today, here at the club we are going to take a look at a product from a company we haven't dealt with at The Club before.  That company is called "ineo", and they specialize in various gadgets to store your hard drives.  From external enclosures to wireless RAID NAS units, ineo aims to provide products that add storage flexibility to your home or office network.  The first product to go under the microscope is the ineo NA203 High Speed 2.5" External Hard Disk Enclosure.  Let's tear her open and see what she is made of.

Features:

  • Design as a cigarette box, simply push one button to open

  • Aluminum Alloy Casing covered with Leather

  • USB cable attached

  • USB Bus Powered

  • All-In-One Model

  • Truly Plug and Play

  • Attractive Green and Red LED Indicates Power and HDD Activity

Specifications:

  • Support 2.5" SATA I/II Hard Disk Drives up to 320GB

  • USB2.0 Transfer rates up to 480Mbps

  • Dimension (W x D x H): 90 x 140 x 20 (mm)

  • Windows ME/98/NT/2000/2003/XP/Vista, MAC, Linux

 Contents and Installation:

The ineo enclosure emanates simplicity.  The package includes a carrying case, a USB extension cord, and the enclosure itself.  Not pictured, but also included are an installation disc and a manual. 

The enclosure itself is an attractive unit, and it reminds me of an old style cigarette case.  The cable protruding from the side is likely too short for most applications, hence the need for the USB extension cable.  A button on the front allows access to the drive inside, and two LEDs in the corner indicate the status of the drive.  

By clicking the button, the innards of the enclosure are revealed. Both the internal and external of the drive is made entirely of metal.  To install the SATA drive, all you have to do is slide the drive into the connector. 

The drive is then sealed into the enclosure with a soft rubber stopper that fits over the end of the drive and holds it into the rail.  It also acts as a dampening tool to reduce noise and vibration.
