Scythe Kama Connect 2
Packaging and A Closer Look
The Scythe Kama Connect 2 comes packaged in a sturdy cardboard box that displays the usual amount of advertising that we have come to expect from Scythe. The front cover shows off the connectivity options of the Kama Connect 2 and the rear shows the adaptor in a little more detail.
The unit itself is housed within compartments of cardboard and should adequately protect the unit if dropped during transit. All things considered, the Kama Connect 2 is well packaged and should arrive in one piece at your doorstep. Included in the package are:
* 1 x Silicon for a 3.5" HDD
* 1 x Silicon jacket for 2.5" HDD
* Power Adaptor and cord
* 4-pin cable for power supply
* USB cable
* Installation manual
Let's have a closer look at the Scythe Kama Connect 2.
A Closer Look
After taking the contents out of the packaging we can see what is included a little clearer. The Silicon HDD boots are made from good quality rubber with breather holes in the bottom and a flap that can be fixed to prevent damage to your drives by them sliding out.
The power supply is ROHS compliant, manufactured by Coming Data
and appears to be of good quality.
The Scythe Kama Connect 2's adaptor is made from lightweight plastic, and feels quite sturdy. The switch feels very robust and not cheap.
The Scythe Kama Connect 2 really does provide a lot of connectivity from such a little adaptor. However, there are some caveats to bear in mind: you can't connect 2 x IDE devices simultaneously (although IDE + SATA is fine); you cannot connect 2 x IDE and 1 x SATA devices simultaneously, and the adaptor does not support NCQ or 3GBps throughput.
