5 out of 5 eggsWell crafted and slick looking

Pros: This product just has so many parts that are well done. From the zippered case to the ease of assembly, to the USB cords that are not-too-long and not-too-short. I just love this thing.
I had a 7200RPM drive that I'd bought for my old notebook and couldn't use it in my new notebook since it needs SATA disk. Extremely speedy for a external hard disk.
Hard to say enough good things about this unit. So much more portable than any other external hard disk I've used.

Cons: The one screw that needed to be unscrewed was not a good fit for any of my phillips screwdrivers for some reason.

Other Thoughts: In the futue, I'll consider using this instead of the off-the-shelf external hard disks.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid

Pros: Installation: Extremely easy. My 100GB Drive plugged right in and powered via USB without a problem (one USB). It came with rubber o-rings which helps in shock and insulating the drive from the case which is excellent.
Function: Works, worked well and no problems thus far.
Performance: As good as I expected out of my 100GB drive.
Look/Feel: Very nice case and practically fits in your pocket. Shiny though susceptible to fingerprints.

Cons: These are minor cons but nonetheless they are what drove me to rate it down to 4 (4.5 wasn't an option)
The button: doesn't do anything. Would have been nice if it was an on/off switch.
No external Power Supply: I knew that it didn't include one when I bought it but now I'm realizing that I could have used an external PS on several occasions. Now-a-days there are many devices such as DVD players with USB ports. To use this device I would need an external PS.

Other Thoughts: The carrying case is a bit spacious. I was hoping for a snug small case to carry the drive in but this case is slightly too big. It could be an advantage or disadvantage but it helps to be aware of that. Had they included a power supply this case would have been perfect. It is as if the PS was planned but then was not included in the final release of the product.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Buy

Pros: All metal, No external power needed, Comes with bag, easily installs in windows xp/vista. Additional backup software included.comes in a nicely packed retail box with instructions and manual.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Be very careful when connecting your hard drive because it can be easily damaged if you apply a lot of force.I bought this product because its more convinient in mobility if extenal power is not needed otherwise many cheaper options were available.Newegg was very quick in shipment.

4 out of 5 eggsFront comes off easily...

Pros: It works great. There are 2 USB ports on the back so you have that, and it puts together pretty easily.

Cons: The front piece is supposed to clip in, and then you slide a piece on the front to unlatch it. Doesn't work like that though. The front of the case doesn't really lock in THAT well. If your moving it around you'll probably wind up clicking it back in a few times.

Other Thoughts: The cons aren't really cons. I bought it with a mail in rebate so it cost me 10 bucks.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little enclosure

Pros: very nice and portable. Seems like no big deal at first, but trust me...not having to plug in an external power supply makes this a very handy little drive.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsNICE

Pros: Hands Down the Best Case I've ever owned. Looks Great. Solid. Comes with a great case that will hold the USB cable. This is the ferrari of portable HDD cases.

Cons: USB cable is a little short. Not to much of a con to lower my rating.

Other Thoughts: Don't know about the software cd. only using this to move large files from work to home.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat enclosure

Pros: Great enclosure. Best I have ever bought. Easy to get up and running, less than 5 minutes. Carrying case and polish cloth are nice touch. Case large enough to carry another enclosure and cables. External power not needed, but has power jack built in.

Cons: Easy to get finger prints on case, but I guess this is why the polishing cloth is included.

Other Thoughts: Liked it so well I ordered another.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Pleased

Pros: Sleek look (ALL METAL!!), VERY easy setup(took about 5 minutes), very secure enclosure with rubber bumpers and tight screw insertion, very fast!! Case carries EVERYTHING including dust rag and USB cable. No extra power source needed! Yet it has an A/C adapter outlet if you wish to use one(not included).

Cons: Finger prints show up very easily on case. But this just means that when clean it looks AMAZING!

Other Thoughts: This case is very sturdy and easy to deal with. Up and running in less than 5 minutes. You will need a small screw driver to open up the case! If you don't have one, get one. I haven't used the software. It is meant for backup, but I am not using the drive for that purpose. You wont need it if you aren't using the drive for backup and your plug and play is working properly.
