  • Vantec ez swap 2.5 enclosure

    I was wondering if i put a hard drive inside of this enclosure and connect it to my carpc via sata off the motherboard using the ezswap, will it allow me to boot from it like a normal harddrive? I like this item as a mounting solution also because the fact that you can put the ez swap anywhere in the car granted the wires reach and you can just eject your harddrive.

    it looks sweet, but remember sata cable is suppose to be max of 1 meter long, and esata is 2m.
    unless you're looking for the hard drive as storage, its kind of pointless to have removable HD that has an OS installed.

      not really especially if you use your car to datalog. It has a usb connection all you need to do is eject the drive and go and connect at your house via usb and you can explore the files. I dont plan on moving it more than a meter away though.
