1 out of 5 eggsDon't Buy this

Pros: Has internal power supply (no brick required)

Cons: Really, really poor quality enclosure

Other Thoughts: The USB>IDE Controller is really bad, you're lucky if it works 5% of the time, the enclosure is really flimsy plastic, the fan does nothing to help cool the drive, it is strictly there to keep the internal power supply from melting the enclosure. There is no internal frame in the plastic box, the only metal part is a thin plate on the back where the jacks are.

1 out of 5 eggsNot worth the plastic it's made of...

Pros: Simple design. Easy to use. Completely self explanatory.

Cons: This case doesn't work with most drives plugged into most computers. Most of the time, it comes up with an "Unknown Device" error regardless of what IDE device is plugged in - even ones that are known to work when plugged into an IDE connection in the tower. I got this to work twice and even then, it only worked for about 5 minutes before the computer seemed to "forget" what was plugged into it. If you're going for "reliable case to use for multiple IDE drives" this is a very poor choice to make. I learned my lesson.
