Tango Pro Review?

Sunday, May 30th, 2010

I had planned on reviewing this Tango Pro USB/Firewire HDD enclosure this weekend.

I drove down to Microcenter, picked up the Tango Pro, and then since Microcenter didn’t have the HDD I wanted I got that from Fry’s.

You’ve probably heard of the drive I wanted to use, it is the only 1 Terabyte 2.5 inch SATA drive currently on the market, theĀ Western Digital 1 TB Scorpio Blue.

Anyway, the enclosure sounds great on paper, it supports Firewire 800, 400, and USB 2. It even includes all the right cables and has a pretty blue LED.

The one problem is that the WD 1TB drive doesn’t fit. It has three platters rather than the standard two, so that makes it slightly taller than a regular 2.5 inch laptop drive.

Oh well, back to Microcenter tomorrow for a return.
