Zalman ZM-VE200 External 2.5-inch HDD Enclosure with Virtual Drive Function Review

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 980Ti G1 Gaming

With hard disk drives ever increasing in storage space while decreasing in price, optical media has been pushed out of the spotlight as the choice for large data backup and portability.  Mechanical drives simply offer a much better and flexible solution compared to the non-reusable DVDs.  Unfortunately, most if not all, software packages for sale in stores, like games or operating systems, still come stored in an optical media.  If you are a user who deals with systems and need to work with multiple software installations, then you probably know the headache brought on by misplaced or mislabeled discs, which can really slow down productivity.

 

Even if you have the foresight to store each disc as an ISO inside a portable drive, you will still need to mount or dismount the image file using a virtual drive program that has to be installed on each system. Wouldn’t it be convenient to have an external HDD that can automatically mount image files for use across multiple computers and under various operating systems? Zalman has an answer: the ZM-VE200 2.5” enclosure.

 

The Zalman ZM-VE200 external 2.5” HDD enclosure comes with a built-in virtual drive function that requires no drivers to use. The Zalman ZM-VE200 is completely plug-and-play and can be connected via a USB 2.0 or eSATA cable, both included in the retail box.  Compatible for use under Windows, Ubuntu or MacOS X systems, the Zalman ZM-VE200 is versatile and flexible, compared to optical drives or other 2.5” enclosures. The Zalman ZM-VE200 fits right in your pocket in a sleek, sexy silver or black aluminum enclosure.
