Hard Drive "Floppy" for SATA HDDs

Sharkoon introduces a new model in its multipurpose drive enclosure line up, the Mobile X-Changer. The external/internal enclosure for 2.5" hard drives is now available for SATA drives. The Mobile X-Changer SATA comes in high quality aluminium and can be used either as a typical, mobile external hard drive enclosure or in combination with the included bay station as an internal drive. The enclosure fits in a 3.5" bay or can also be installed in the included 5.25" bay station which allows the enclosure to function like a floppy drive. The Mobile X-Changer is then inserted like a floppy disk in the front slot and recognized by the system as a drive. Removing the enclosure is as easy as pushing the ejection button. In comparison to the IDE version, the entire Mobile X-Changer SATA can be inserted into the docking station.

For external use with a PC or notebook, the Mobile X-Changer connects via USB or SATA. Internally the docking station connects directly to the motherboard over the SATA interface. Included in the package are an instruction manual, SATA cable, two USB cables (A / Mini-B and A / ISO), a set of screws and a carrying bag.

The Mobile X-Changer is available immediately and also offered without the docking station as a separate upgrade set, to use as an external hard drive or to use multiple hard drives with one docking station. The enclosure is compatible with the IDE and SATA versions.

Drive enclosure Mobile X-Changer for 2.5" SATA hard drives / For external or internal installation / Included: 3.5" hard drive enclosure and 5.25" bay station / External connection via USB or SATA / With included bay station: MSRP 29 euro / Also available separately: MSRP 15 euro

My vote is for the TJ07 - I've never had one, but every other high-end Silverstone case I've owned has been amazin. When i bought the G70 a couple of weeks ago i was pretty disappointed and decided not to use it.



What was it you didnt like. I agree I like the silverstones, looks and funcionality. I had a lian li 70 case from along time ago and it was great, looked good and had great cooling.
Ill start looking around again. I looked at that cosmos and thats a NICE case with great airflow from top and bottom. brushed aluminum and it has a pretty slick rail system on outside for handles or tipping over as well as allows the bottom fans to pull air up.

- Thin aluminium. Panels bend too easily (not like my TJ03).
- Rivets holding everything in place (Most Silverstones incl. my TJ03 used screws)
- Cheap looking black plastic top-front of case. Plastic clips also used to hold the front of case in place.
- Plastic switches and lian li badge.

Granted I have high expectations of a case, but if you're putting a high-end Silverstone against a G70, there's no contest in my eyes.

Edit: you may also want to look at this: A+Case Black Pearl. The layout isn't perfect for watercooling, but the case is very high quality.

Mr. Smith
What is the once I have? pc75? I'd agree with jim, it is ok but nothing special...

However the v1000 is awesome! Thick alu,no plastic but still riveted.

I have a TJ09 and a LiLi PC71B, both awesome cases

I think my next case will need to be either a small LiLi cube or a large LiLi v1000 :)
