OK, so this isn't Mac-related, but I was hoping someone could answer this before I buy something that doesn't do what I'm looking for...
I have a DVR box that can accept external storage, providing it's using ESATA.
I don't currently have an ESATA-capable enclosure, so I'm in the market. Ideally, I'd like a 2.5" enclosure that is bus-powered (I don't have an outlet handy to plug in a wall wart).
I see cables on the market that are "powered" ESATA cables. In other words, it's SATA+power on one end (for the drive) and ESATA on the other end - so that tells me that technically, power can be piped through the ESATA connector. Does anyone know of a case that they can definitively say powers the drive via the ESATA connection?Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
