Too much partying last night. Way too much. You wake up the next morning with the taste of whatever still in your mouth and your head swimming like those hot chicks in a giant martini at the Cirque du Soleil. So roll out of bed, or off the kitchen table, and step directly on your brand new laptop. Awesome. Not only that, instead of jumping right off, you get mad and kick it across the room and destroy whatever hope there was of fixing it. Now what do you do with the only surviving part of that laptop, the Hard Drive?
You grab an INEO High Speed 2.5” Enclosure. Now, when you revert back to your desktop while you wait on your new laptop to arrive in the mail, you will have portable storage for whatever you need. The INEO NA202 is a USB2.0 hard drive enclosure with hi-speed data transfer up to 480Mbps. It has a convenient USB cable that wraps around and an aluminum allow case for spectacular heat dissipation. The black and silver design was very appealing too, mostly because that’s my favorite color combo.
Let’s peek in the box. Inside you find the enclosure itself in 3 parts. The main piece, the back, and the circuit board with USB 2.0 and Power plugs. There is a small black mesh bag that is lined with a soft foam padding for carrying your case around. Inside this I found a small bag with the four screws that are used to hold this minuscule contraption together, and a strip of sticker pads to cover the screw holes. There is also a small screwdriver included in case you ran out of Vodka. Okay, it’s an actual screwdriver for putting this thing together… or taking it apart. Then we have a manual, an installation disc, and pamphlet chock full of INEO’s other goodies.
