About this book
The hard disk drive is one of the finest examples of the precision control of mechatronics, with tolerances less than one micrometer achieved while operating at high speed. Increasing demand for higher data density as well as disturbance-prone operating environments continue to test designers' mettle. Explore the challenges presented by modern hard disk drives and learn how to overcome them with Hard Disk Drive: Mechatronics and Control.Beginning with an overview of hard disk drive history, components, operating principles, and industry trends, the authors thoroughly examine the design and manufacturing challenges. They start with the head positioning servomechanism followed by the design of the actuator servo controller, the critical aspects of spindle motor control, and finally, the servo track writer, a critical technology in hard disk drive manufacturing. By comparing various design approaches for both single- and dual-stage servomechanisms, the book shows the relative pros and cons of each approach. Numerous examples and figures clarify and illustrate the discussion.Exploring practical issues such as models for plants, noise reduction, disturbances, and common problems with spindle motors, Hard Disk Drive: Mechatronics and Control avoids heavy theory in favor of providing hands-on insight into real issues facing designers every day.

    Sub-par enclosure using JMicron JMS567; look elsewhere if you desire quality

    I purchased the Sabrent EC-UASP (date: 2015/07/17) with the intentions of using it with a Samsung 840 EVO 250GB SSD as an external backup and storage device. As someone who has worked with both consumer and professional ATA/SATA and SCSI/SAS storage subsystems, and have familiarity with ATA protocol in addition to USB specifications, I tend to have high standards, so when reading my review please keep that in mind. Below are my opinions that justify a 2-star rating, with photos included:* A review from 2015/01/23 states, backed with photo evidence, that the EC-UASP uses an ASMedia 1053E SATA-to-USB bridge IC. However, the product I received uses a JMicron JMS567 SATA-to-USB bridge IC (USB vendor ID 0x152d, product ID 0x1567). JMicron has a track record of designing fairly buggy and unreliable storage ICs, often compounded with bad performance and quirky behaviour (i.e. SMART pass-through is often not supported or done incorrectly), and as such I avoid their chipsets; I... 2/5 Jeremy Chadwick (Mountain View, CA, US) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Supports Trim! Good speed.

    I got a 500GB SSD recently and have been looking for an enclosure for it and so I tried the Sabrent-UASP one. A couple of things I was looking for:- Support for UASP: Not sure if there's a way to tell this, but- Good speed: Using HDTach, about 200 MB/sec average, random access: 0.1 msec, burst: ~282 MB/sec- Support for Trim: Ran Trimcheck and this is the FIRST USB 3.0 enclosure that passed as supporting TrimThat last one (Trim) was a big one, as I was having doubts about using the SSD in an enclosure because of lack of Trim support, but I found found one that works!Another plus (to me) is that the cable has two of the "normal" USB connectors instead of one of the dual-wide micro USB, which I think are too fragile. Also, it actually has a working power button!A couple cons:- Case is plastic (but they provide sponges for the front and top so the SSD is snug inside).- It's kind of hard to get open,... 4/5 JL (USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Read the directions first!

    4/5 Charles E (USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: ORICO USB3.0 to SATA III 2.5" External Hard Drive Enclosure for 7mm and 9.5mm 2.5 Inch SATA HDD/SSD Tool Free [UASP Supported] Black(2189U3) (Electronics) Dropped in a SSD drive, and learned I should read the directions first. The case comes with two pieces of stick on foam tape which adds a friction grip to the SSD. I did not put these foam pieces in the case to snug up the SSD. In transport in the backpack, the SSD became unplugged and stopped working. Opening the case, I saw the issue immediately, and applied the two pieces of foam tape, which meant the SSD was snugged up against the case. Have not had an issue since.

    Saved My Photos and Music

    I purchased a Mac in 2011 for writing and it turned into my all purpose computer. Wrote music, stored thousands of photographs, and had 4 novels on it. Then my toddler got angry with me one day and poured a glass of pineapple juice on it. Goodbye computer. I'd already broken the keyboard on it and there had been Red Bull spillage before, so several contributing factors led to its demise. Thanks to this handy device, however, I was able to salvage all of the files I needed from the pineapple Mac by pulling out the HDD and using it as a read-only drive on my new all-in-one computer that is a little more spill resistant.Using it is super simple. Just remove your HDD and then insert it into this device. You plug it into your USB and the new computer reads it as a read-only drive. Just copy the files you need and you're good to go. It took about 15 minutes to copy over a 32 GB iPhoto library and the rest of the files were a breeze.Considering the ease and price of... 5/5 C3K (Washington) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Light and Flimsy

    3/5 Dustin Blasingame - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: ORICO USB3.0 to SATA III 2.5" External Hard Drive Enclosure for 7mm and 9.5mm 2.5 Inch SATA HDD/SSD Tool Free [UASP Supported] Black(2189U3) (Electronics) While this HDD case does work, placing the hard drive into it was a bit difficult. There is not enough space in the enclosure to lay the HDD flat and slide it into the SATA port. I had to angle it, fearing that I would bend the connector on the HDD. The plastic is extremely thin. The top piece runs on rails the entire length of the case. Even with the HDD placed in, it feels light and flimsy. It does function, but I do not feel comfortable transporting it between locations. This case is best left at the desk. I'll stick with Aukey for future external case purchases. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 24, 2017
