          Comments about Macally Mobile Wi-Fi Hard Drive Enclosure:

          I just recently installed an old 2.5" Hitachi HGST 500 GB 7200 RPM HDD I had lying around in the Macally Wi-Fi Hard Drive Enclosure (WIFIHDD). The hard drive was easy to install in the enclosure and it took little effort to snap the enclosure shut. The enclosure's USB 3.0 support is awesome and the drive works great when used strictly as an external USB drive. The WLAN network setup for the enclosure is flaky and you may have to do it twice in order for the management software to maintain it's WLAN network settings and allow you to connect to the enclosure wirelessly via the WiFiStor software. Ultimately, once you get the enclosure properly configured and connect to the network, it works good with your iPhone, iPad or PC. Also, each time your PC restarts or goes into standby mode, you have to reconnect to the device using the WiFiStor software interface.

              The app is a little basic for my tastes but the performance is good and after a couple of coctails I'll give it 5 stars. Also, once you close the case with the hard drive in it is very difficult to get back open.

                    According to instructions, you can use a 2.5" drive up to 9.5 mm thick. Mine was 9 mm and I could not get the enclosure to close once the drive was connected to the internal hardware.

                    It's a nice idea, but the end result is I'll probably have to send it back.

                      Works as advertised. Connects to the network with no problems and works with a SSD that I installed in it also.
