4 out of 5 eggsgood for its price

Pros: It's very light and sleek looking, and it goes very well with my ultrabook as an external drive. It comes with a screwdriver and 2 backup screws in case you lost them.

Cons: It's quite slow and is not recommanded to put an SSD in it since it will cap the speed, but I won't complain too much at this price.

3 out of 5 eggsIDE case

Pros: not fully compatible with all IDE drives. Installed an older toshiba drive and kept getting write delay errors installed in another case worked fine. Ended up placing in a samsung newer IDE and is working fine as of now.

Cons: great case but seems to be not compatible on some drives.

1 out of 5 eggsWill NOT work on Win 7

Pros: Looks pretty, all is assembled easily

Cons: Purchased because it claimed to work on Win 7. Called the manfacturer and they told me to call NewEgg. IT WILL NOT WORK ON WINDOWS 7. It's being returned to New Egg.

4 out of 5 eggsgreat

Pros: heavy duty, if this case breaks before the HD, you must not have a hard drive in it. Really simple. decent case cover. sweet looking exterior. looks better than the picture.

Cons: the screw driver sucks, but that's not why I got it (ended up using my own). the usb port was at a slight angle, so I have to push a little hard than I should to get it in, but I usually don't remove the cable. they only give you two screws, I like extras. I wish they gave me at least 4. shows fingerprints real easy.

Other Thoughts: it is being used in a shop environment, if it can survive there, it can survive anywhere.

Hitachi Travel star, draws one amp, but I can still use it with only one end plugged in

5 out of 5 eggsCheap and Reliable product

Pros: -Very long period of reliable use; over 5 years now, still going strong
-Speeds are what you'd expect for USB 2.0 and PATA
-Cheap; $10

Cons: -Screws are shoddy
-Drive doesn't mount to case
-drive somehow came unplugged internally over several years

Other Thoughts: Considering I paid $10 for this thing a dog's age ago, and it still works, and it is still available for sale, is a testament to its quality. Would buy again.

4 out of 5 eggsGood, but case needs help

Pros: Inexpensive, works out of the box

Cons: Needed a push pin to create holes in the plastic facade so I could insert the screws included with the package.

Other Thoughts: Overall a good unit for the price. I'm running Win7Pro64 and it recognized it right away. No need to use the included CD for drivers. The front face piece is made of plastic with the outer case being sheet metal. The case has holes where the included screws should be inserted to hold the face on. The plastic wasn't pre-drilled so I grabbed a pushpin to create the needed hole for the screw. They include a screwdriver, but its so small it's hard to use. I used my own screwdriver and the case/face plate went together just fine. I'd by again if I needed another one.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat enclosure for laptop drives

Pros: Aluminum, slim, USB cable for data and power rather than two separate cables.

Cons: smaller drives (a Fujitsu 60GB) require that you add a spacer to avoid the drive moving around.

Other Thoughts: I have two of these that I've been using for several years. Very durable. Swap drives in and out all the time. Have used with a Fujitsu 60 GB, a Hitachi 100 GB and a Hitachi 30GB. Works great with all of them. I like that the USB cable has two connectors on one end for data and power. Don't always need the power but nice to have the option without having an extra cable. Standard USB connection on both ends of the cable. Indicator light on drive.

Great for recovering data off a laptop drive or using drives from older laptops as external storage - cheap way to get an external USB drive.

4 out of 5 eggsOne of the better cases.

Pros: - Sold high quality workmanship. Not cheap junk.
- The drive fits snugly into the case, so there is no bouncing around.
- Comes with the standard p-leather case.
- Comes with USB cable (standard size on both ends)
- Detected immediately on Windows 7 without drivers.

Cons: - The LED protrudes from the case, which makes me nervous it may get knocked out.
- Tiny screws used to hold the access panel on this sides. This is common for these small cases, but I still don't like it.

Other Thoughts: For the price I paid, this is a STEAL! Don't bother buying some cheap Nippon Labs or unknown case. This one is 10x better and cost me just as much. I should have bought more of them.

Wish I could give this a 4.5 eggs. It deserves more than 4 but not quite 5.

2 out of 5 eggs2.5 case

Pros: Looks nice and shiny!! Probably would work if I could actually screw the thing together.

Cons: Didn't come with screws to put the case together. Back side of case says "Packing accessories" lists everything that should be in the box but says "Screw package and screwdriver optional" Seriously? so some of the boxes will come with screws and some wont is that what it means?

Other Thoughts: Will go with Antec like I already did last time for a 3.5inch case, just wanted to save some money since its for a 20GB harddrive out of a really old laptop.
