Good HDD Enclosure Tags: Western Digital Hard Drives Enclosure Storage Last response: December 25, 2012 11:50 PM in Storage Share keyguard December 24, 2012 12:31:15 AM Hi....I'm looking for a good HDD enclosure for my 2 TB WD Caviar Black....I'm looking for one having these features : - 3,5" SATA to USB 3.0 - have fan - capable of reading SMART attributes - available in Asia especially Indonesia plus does anyone know whether Rosewill RX-358 U3B is capable of reading SMART or not ? Please help me.....thanks More about : good hdd enclosure phil22 a c 79 G Storage December 24, 2012 11:16:35 AM No enclosure can read a drive's SMART data. Reading such data is a function of drive diagnostic software, not the enclosure it's in. So you can scrub that requirement off your list of must have features because that feature doesn't exist. keyguard December 25, 2012 11:50:43 PM I know about the software....example being hdtune or victoria or hdsentinel... What i mean is that to read SMART attribute requires some hardware (USB-ATA bridge chip if i'm not mistaken) Some enclosure support it (ex wd my passport usb 3.0) some don't (ex vantec nextstar dual hdd dock usb 2.0 can't read SMART attribute with any program) thanks....
