    In Conclusion

    Another problem I had with the enclosure was the false sense of security that the enclosure gives you as far as the durability of the unit, in it's entirety, actually is. Not that I would ever forget that there's a fragile hard drive in this thing, but it's portability often can imply a degree of durability, and that degree of ruggedness just isn't there. There's still a hard drive in that case, and it's still susceptible to data loss or complete failure if you drop it. The unit certainly looks rugged with it's thick clear plastic cover and metal shielding inside, but the fact of the matter remains; it's still a hard drive.

    Overall, the Mapower MAP-63C enclosure wins with me. It's VERY portable and HIGHLY compatible and pretty fast when compared with other means of external data storage. The unit even LOOKS cool. I can easily give this drive an overall SystemLogical rating of 9 out of 10 and it's likely not to get knocked out of that spot until a faster unit is brought to my attention and tested. Certainly a Firewire unit would be faster, but how many PCs do you have in your house that has Firewire?
