Hey Everyone,

I wanted to share with you guys what I have been using as 2.5" Cases for HDDs and SSDs.

http://ncix.com/products/?sku=64668

In Canada, you can price match it to $2.75.

What are other peoples thoughts?

Earlier today I ordered this similar-looking item. The $5 US price (plus shipping) was for a pair. They're available in various colors:

I've looked at those, but apparently they come in 25 piece packs only.

In Perth, Western Australia, I bought 2 from a local BMD distributor (Vizcom) when I bought my forst 2 SSDs, and then I bought 3 when I bought my 3rd SSD .. I don't buy my SSD's from Vizcom ... and Vizcom don't carry them in stock .. maybe ask another distributor.

the only stipulation they made was that I waited until end of week or they were going to charge freight .. understandable on a $10-$15 order

But I donīt think she could do it for less than 10 € per case (altough not a bad price for handmade in Germany^^ )

I really want the Blackmagic ones, hard to source in quantities of less than 90 units though.

BMD individual SSD storage cases:

These look very similar, and claim to be anti-static:

Yep, I got the all black one though ;)

They don't fit in straight down, they have to be slightly sideways, but it works out really good, I can fit at least two in there, maybe more, and I'm sure I can cut some of the rubber off to really make them fit straight down.

I may have to look into the 1010 when i get my ssd's. This is what I like the most about it the most:

"Unbreakable, watertight, airtight, dustproof, chemical resistant and corrosion proof case "

I have a pelican CF card case for my 7d cards and its water proof and solid as ever. I like having that assurance that my media is secure.

The's a very good post on the BM site regarding this:

http://forum.blackmagicdesign.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=4643&p=28774&hilit=anti+static+case#p28774

George is recommending Anti Static cases, I would agree.

Thanks,

And the advantage of anti static for those who don't know (like myself :) ) is....?

SSDs are susceptible to damage caused by even fairly minute electrical shock from static electricity. Static electricity is pretty much everywhere, and common activities and materials, such as a person moving in their clothes, or sliding across a car seat, etc. can generate static electric charges easily strong enough to kill a SSD.

Most of the housing of the SSD itself is insulated (protected), but not the bare electrical contacts on the end of the drive. Since these are connected directly to the delicate circuitry inside the SSD, storing the SSD in an anti-static case when not in use -- such as immediately after removing it from the BMCC -- is a really good idea.

In my previous post above (http://www.bmcuser.com/showthread.php?240-SSD-Cases&p=54379&viewfull=1#post54379) the case made by WiebeTech is an example of an anti-static case.

No worries with static electricity in Jamaica. Too humid!

The majority of Jamaica isn't humid though , unless you are in some kind of forest/woodland/hilly area and in those places its usually cool. Jamaica's mostly just hot, with dry breeze mostly from the sea . Florida for example is humid and the air is heavy and still in comparison.

Just picked up the startech.com static free cases. Looks like they'd fit inside the pelican 1010. Might be a bit overkill but it's an option.
