            Needed a backup for an older iMac desktop. Never had backed up this computer since purchase. It works fine, bought a firewire 800 cable along with it (didn't come with older firewire cables). Pleased with packaging and timeliness of delivery.

                  I use this enclosure as a Time Machine backup with a drive that I already owned. I love the design and it has seamlessly & perfectly done the job ever since receiving it.

                        Be aware that Macally has changed the hardware infrastructure of this enclosure. You can no longer have downstream devises accessible without the power of this enclosure turned on.

                        The enclosure functions fine otherwise, but I find this to be very inconvenient and energy inefficient.

                        Comments about Macally 3.5" G-S350SU3B2 eSATA USB 3.0 FireWire 400/800 Storage Enclosure:

                        The Macally external enclosure has eSATA, Firewire and USB3.0 connectivity. It is lightweight and easy to install a hard drive or SSD drive. Matches a MacPro tower. The enclosure is quiet has the power button on the front that lights up and is quick and easy to power on.
                        I had a hard disk drive that I replaced with an SSD drive but I still wanted to access the data on the drive. I wanted an external enclosure that would have connections for my existing computer as well as be future proof. I was looking for an enclosure that had eSATA, Firewire and USB 3.0. I also wanted the connection speeds to be fast. I searched and had difficulty finding an external enclosure that had all the connections that was of good quality. I like Macally products and discovered that the Macally G-S350SU3B2 external enclosure has all the connectivity I wanted and and a great price. Many other enclosures cost a lot more. The power cord is lightweight and fairly stiff, but works fine. I would like to have a more sturdy cable. This power cable has a wall wart transformer on the power cable end so it was too large to plug into the only outlet I had available on my power strip. I had to use a short 1 foot extension power cable to get it all to work. Installing the hard drive in the enclosure was fairly easy. You only need a #2 phillips screwdriver. The enclosure is made of Aluminum and well built, but light weight. The back panel is plastic, but painted silver to look like the Aluminum enclosure. It was easy to get into the enclosure to install the hard drive. There are easy instructions. The only problem I had was when I installed the hard drive the power button cable slid easily under the drive and covered one of the screw holes so I had to remove the drive and move the cable to the side and re-seat the drive and attach the screws. The cable could be taped or mounted to the side better, but this is no big thing. I just didn't want to pinch the cable. The power button is on the front and is easy to turn on and off. When you press the power button it turns the unit on and off immediately. There is no hold and delay - I like this feature. The button lights up when on and flashes when the drive is accessing data. The enclosure comes in a good box with a firewire cable and USB 3.0 cable and two types of stands for upright operation. The eSATA cable is not included. The included Firewire cable is only about 16 inches long. This enclosure works great with my MacPro. This enclosure will work great with both a 3.5" hard drive or a 2.5" SSD drive with an adapter. I couldn't find anything better anywhere with eSATA, Firewire and USB 3.0 ports and these specs at this price. I'm very happy with my purchase.
