Backup Drive FireXpress 350 usb2 Any good?


New member

I'm checking here because I can't find a single review or test on the web so far for the FireXpress 350 USB2 /Firewire 3.5 IDE enclosure. Thanks in advance, Dix.

Looking for an economical way to backup my Medea Raid 120.

Does this look any good? FireXpress 350 USB2/ Firewire
The prices are U$98 to $128.00 for the enclosure.
Then install your own drive. A couple 200GB IDEs to swap out of the enclosure seem perfect for quick backup and cleaning off my RAID 120.

I used a different, but similar sysytem from Professional Video and Sound, or
200 Gig IDE drives make for a decent and cheap backup.
I'm waiting for the larger ones though before buying my third one.
