Marshal SATA HDD Case Features Angles And An ECO Mode

Except for having a stylish, angular design, this external SATA HDD case from Marshal doesn’t bring anything new to the table. The company does mention that the enclosure features an ECO mode, but all that does is stop the drive from spinning after 5 minutes of inactivity. In that standby mode the enclosure’s power consumption drops by about 71%, but if you’re constantly accessing the drive, the ECO mode isn’t going to kick in. So it might be a better choice if you’re strictly looking for a data backup solution. Oh, and it also only features a USB 2 connection.
