I'm curious myself as to whether 2.5" drives would fit, and after three pages in this thread I'm still not sure. I think deeztech has a point - the replies have been well intentioned but they don't answer the question. Deeztech: I wish you luck in your search. If you do find out one way or the other, I hope you'll be willing to share the answer here.

Well I found the "Nano-ITX Computer The Damn Small Machine!" aka the "eBox" manufacturer and I asked them. The reply was as follows:

"In particular, the eBox-3850PS product will accomodate a 2.5" ide drive."

Other eBox products will only accomodate 44 pin IDE flash drives that plug directly into the IDE connector on the system board.  I'll be happy to discuss these options with you."

Now I'm not sure which eBox model the DSL store carries, therefore my question.

The "Bargain Fanless Mini-ITX BareBones Computer" still remains a mystery.

I've looked at all the pics.
I can't recommend a 2.5" HD in any of those boxes even if they will fit, the heat is a threat. These drives DO get hot.

But then my reasoning is skewed since I don't actually own a mini-itx (yet).
I have a non-itx barebone; (
although these look good too (

oh dear, now I'm digressing (- guilty as hell!), I think I'll
do my next topic in a different post..
