What you get
There isn't a whole lot that comes with the kit, but then not much is necessary to make this setup work. The case itself is a simple metal frame that mounts into a standard 5.25" drive bay. The front panel is plastic, and has a vented grill that allows for a little airflow. We'll get into the importance of this feature in a bit.
Also included is the required cabling for hooking it up to the mainboard, and screws that will allow you to mount it to a standard bay. There were also more than enough screws included, so if you're losing things from time to time, you won't have to go scrounging for extra parts to install it.
Installing the EasyUSB was a breeze. Even using the rail system in my case, there was nothing difficult about mounting the unit. Screw the rails into place on the side of the metal casing, and slide it into place. Nothing could be easier.
Cabling was also pretty straightforward. The cables included with the kit have a single block on one end and a pair of blocks on the other. The single end hooks to the inside of the unit while the split ends hook up to the mainboard.
A nice feature is the fact that the single block can only be inserted one way, which takes care of any problems of accidentally hooking it up backwards. Simple touches like this are what make an add-on like this much more desirable.
The two connectors that hook into the mainboard are very simple to get on. The red wires are clearly marked as the Power lead, so can be hooked up accordingly to the USB pins on the board. Just take a quick look in your motherboard manual and see which leads are powered, then hook up the connectors that way.
