5 out of 5 eggsVictory

Pros: You get what you paid for:
1. It's well build especially considering the price.
2. It fits and works with any 2.5 inch laptop hard drive and ssd's.
3a. The usb 3.0 cable is a NORMAL usb cable. If you hate that stupid cable that looks like someone took pliers and literally BENT INWARD the center part of one side of the usb 3.0 cable connection end-piece (like one included with the wd my book 3tb that every etailer sells-for example), you'll appreciate this.
3b. The cable is about the perfect length. It is 2 feet and 1 inch fully stretch to a perfect line. Yes most people buying this enclosure, no exception here, buy this for converting an internal laptop hdd to an external one to use with their laptop and the usb ports are MORE easily accessible obvious versus most desktop pc's.
Thus they often don't need nor want a super long usb cable requiring them to set their external hdd 4 to 6 feet away from the laptop when using it.
4. Both " quick removal" and " enable disk write caching" work flawlessly with this unit in Windows operating systems.
5. It looks good. Yes I agree, looks really isn't a big deal, but it's a nice distant bonus.

Cons: It's not worth subtracting an egg, but given this enclosure's physical dimension's design, it doesn't appear to have any dampening material ( rubber, foam, etc) at all inside and doesn't have any on the outside.

Thus play it safe and be gentle. ANY spinning disc hard drive while turned on ( and yes even completely powered off) is not immune to shock damage causing data loss and even hard drive failure even inside this enclosure. It's metal on metal. Remember that.

Other Thoughts: 10 bucks USD for an easy solid way to turn either a internal ssd or laptop 2.5" hdd into an external plug n play storage device without requiring separate a/c power is a win/win.
** useful tip****
Want an easy way to get your pc back to normal when major problems arise? System Image Restoration is your friend and HUGE time-saver.

If you're using a regular spinning disc hard drive for Windows, just buy a ssd from newegg ( sandisk ultra II 240GB as if the time of writing this review is on sale for around 90 ish bucks USD. This is an EGGcellent deal!!), perform a fresh Windows installation into the ssd- after UNinstalling Windows from the current hdd when you load the disc and delete all partitions on it to DEactivate it, then put your old harddrive into this enclosure and use it for System Image Backups and restoration as needed.
Each laptop/motherboard has a different Fkey for accessing Windows Recovery ( usually a blue screen with multiple options). Windows 7 and 8 make this process fairly easy, but Vista is a little more of a headache I hear.

Cheers
