|Eagle Tech ET-CS2LSU2-BK 2.5 Inch USB Drive Enclosure
We've looked at quite a few external hard drive enclosures in reviews at Bigbruin.com, but only recently have we started to see units designed for 2.5" SATA drives. Drives in this smaller format are now available in larger capacities at lower prices,making them a more reasonable option. Eagle Tech has sent over one of their latest products, the ET-CS2LSU2-BK 2.5 Inch USB Drive Enclosure, shown in the promotional image below.
With a built in USB connector and leather trim, the ET-CS2LSU2-BK has an interesting appearance that instantly sets it apart from a typical drive enclosure. This review will take a closer look to see what else it offers that might differentiate it from other similar devices on the market. Before we get to that though, let's take a look at some published data taken from the Eagle Tech product page.
