Re: Electron Plus 3, some questions.

They had to be taking the p155 when they did that surely, what good will that do? The entire case is plastic :lol: not only that the original psu inside the elk, which is right next to the drive, isn't in use when the plus 3 is attached either, that some strange wtf'ness right there.
