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.

    Excellent tool-less enclosure

    I purchased this enclosure because I needed more external hard drives and I grew tired of having to get a screwdriver to take out the hard drive for my older enclosure. It fits my new drives very well. The cover is easy to remove, just some firm pressure where it snaps into the enclosure. I had to bend the SATA connection a bit to get the drive on and to fit in the case. I’m sure that won’t cause any damage as long as you’re careful. Once it is in, there is a foam pad that it comes with that has to be attached to the cover that comes off. I put mine in the middle of it but you can put it wherever you like.There is a small, blue LED light on the side with the Inateck branding on it that turns on when it is plugged in and... 5/5 Vinny R.

    well designed and easy to install

    4/5 Amazon Customer (New York USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: [USB 3.0 & Tool-free ] Inateck USB 3.0 HDD SATA External Hard Drive Disk Enclosure Case for 9.5mm 7mm 2.5 Inch SATA HDD and SSD(FE2004) (Personal Computers) Used to repurpose old 2.5" 200gb Seagate harddrive (9.5 mm) prior to disposing of my old laptop. Lightweight, well designed and easy to install. For only $10, this is a cost-effective way to add some additional portable storage.UPDATE: Tested this enclosure with a new Samsung 850 EVO SSD which was purchased subsequent to this review and was disappointed with read/write speeds of only 150 MB/s as compared to the Sabrent 2.5mm enclosure that I purchased with the SSD, which was almost 3x as fast with the same SSD in the 1GB Crystal Disk Mark test. However, this enclosure is still great for the 9.5mm harddrive I am using it with but would recommend a different enclosure if you are planning on using this for a SSD (in which case, I would recommend you looking for a slimmer (and faster) 7mm enclosure.

    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
