Eagle Tech is accelerating its presence in the U.S. market by launching new product in rapid successions. Looking at its website more new products covering power supplies, ATX, HTPC and server cases, and HDD enclosures products are beginning to surface.
At [M] we have the pleasure in the first hand look of three 3 external enclosures from Eagle Tech in the past couple of months. Today, once again, we will take another good look at the W-Series, aluminum 3.5" single drive enclosure providing both PATA and SATA connections via USB connectivity.

Newegg seems to carry a full line of Eagle Tech products. At $26.99, the W-series is priced quite competitively.

decent review

The screws were easy to remove; nothing stripped this time. However, I found it difficult to slide the tray out because there is nothing to get a crib on, and it is quite a tight fit.
