The Other World Computing (OWC) Express USB 2.0 Enclosure is a great choice to make use of a 2.5-inch Serial ATA (SATA) hard drive you might have sitting on a shelf.
This is my first time trying this particular OWC advice, and just like the dozens of other products I've sampled from the company it's a hit.
While it might sound like rocket science to some when thinking about putting together a hard drive for use but the included quick start guide offers one of the most simple setups of I've seen for most any device.
Users simply open up the case and insert a drive and lock it in place. Then just put the cover back on and lock it tight shut with the included screws.
If you don't have any hard drives sitting around, it's simple to use to swap drives in and out. Users can also just fill one up and then put it in safe storage and then fill the enclosure with a new one.
Included is a USB cable to hook up to any Mac or PC, along with a carrying sleeve.
Since it is bus powered (power supplied via USB from the computer) there is no need for an AC adapter, which is great for portability since it measures just 3-by-5-by-.5-inches and weighs just 2 ounces without the hard drive.
