Xcellon EHD-3.5 overview

  • 1Description

The Xcellon EHD-3.5 SATA Hard Drive Enclosure is a convenient solution for accessing data on an internal hard disk drive. It houses a single 3.5" I/II/III hard disk with a maximum capacity of 3 TB. A tray-less, front-loading drive bay enables easy access with simple, tool-free installation.

The EHD-3.5 is equipped with eSATA and USB 3.0 ports and comes with the necessary interface cables. Connected to compatible devices, the USB 3.0 port can attain maximum transfer rates of up to 5.0 Gbps.

Houses a 3.5" SATA I/II/III Hard Disk Drive
The Xcellon EHD-3.5 SATA Hard Drive Enclosure houses a single 3.5" SATA I/II/III hard disk. It's a great solution for storing an internal-type drive and is perfect for creating an external backup for your computer.
USB 3.0 and eSATA Ports
The EHD-3.5 is equipped with USB 3.0 and eSATA ports and comes with high-speed connection cables, making it easy to connect the enclosure to most computers.
Maximum Transfer Rates of up to 5.0 Gbps
When plugged into your computer's USB 3.0 port, the EHD-3.5 can attain transfer rates of up to 5.0 Gbps via the included USB 3.0 cable.
Aluminum Construction
The EHD-3.5 employs a dual-element noise-free cooling system to prevent overheating when working for long periods of time. The aluminum construction dissipates heat, while the vented bay door maximizes airflow to cool your disk drive.
The EHD-3.5 allows hot-swapping, so you won't have to shut down your computer every time you install a hard disk.
Front-Loading, Tray-Less Drive Bay
Installing your hard disk is easy. Instead of dismantling your computer, just pop the disk drive into the easily accessible, front-loading drive bay. The bay is tray-less, eliminating the need for a drive carrier, screwdriver, or other installation tools. When removing your disk from the enclosure, the bay door prevents jams by automatically ejecting the disk as you open the door.
Locking Bay Door
As an added security measure, the bay door locks with the included hex key to prevent it from inadvertently opening.
LED Status Indicator
The drive bay is furnished with a status LED to indicate when your disk drive is powered or reading and writing.

    Xcellon EHD-3.5 reviews

    EHD-3.5 External 3.5" SATA Hard Drive Enclosure is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Initial Impression We have had one in the office for several days, and it has worked. Mechanically attractive, quiet (no fan), and simple. Inserting a drive is quick and uncomplicated. One goof by the manufacturer: the drive door can be locked, with the cutest Allen wrench you've ever seen, but why bother? The money spent on the door lock should have been used to install three LED indicators, replacing the single multi-color indicator it has. The manual states that this is a status indicator but doesn't tell the user what the colors mean. We had to ask the manufacturer how to interpret the colors. Red, for example, means idle, while blue means that the drive is active and spinning, and both colors at once mean read/write activity. Three separate LEDs would have cost a few cents and been FAR more useful.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Update after long use This drive enclosure has a nasty habit, one completely ignored by its manual. When not accessed for a short time, the disk automagically powers down, taking it off-line as far as the OS knows. Trouble is, this causes delays when next using the drive, which is annoying enough. Worse, when the OS looks at other drives for whatever reason, it will occasionally think that it needs to see this one, as well, even though this one is not involved in the I/O operation. Thus, completely unrelated disk access can be held up waiting for this drive to spin up and come back on line.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great drive! I have used over 100 of them! I am a DIT and I use these drives backing up data from arri and red cameras. I have used over 100 of them from bh. No screws! I can install and start using this drive in less than 60 seconds. Only wish there was a cheaper alternative. A great drive and a great alternative to buying G Drives for every shoot$$$$$. I buy the internal hard drives from bh as well.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't work and didn't have any phone or online support My mac tower 5,1 with mac osx 8.5 and el capitan could not recognize this enclose. When I looked online for drivers or support, there was nothing. I returned it immediately. If the price looks too good to be true, it probably is. There are much better options for $ more.
