4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Easy assembly, works like a charm, solid aluminum chassis can by used as a weapon in a pinch.

Cons: USB 2.0 only

No ventilation means that the HDD can get toasty pretty quick. I'd only recommend this for occasional transfers. In my case I was replacing my notebook's hard drive and needed a way to transfer data.

That being said, if you wanted to have your external connected often for long periods of time, I'd look for...cooler alternatives.

5 out of 5 eggsNice product

Pros: Does what it says it does. Compact and well made.

Cons: None really. Software is not included, but you can download it from their website.

Other Thoughts: Works every time. Transfer rates are decent. Had no issues installing my drive in this case, fit perfectly.

1 out of 5 eggsI do not write reviews, but . . .

Pros: Got it quite cheap.

Cons: It ruined a perfectly good 500gb HDD.

Other Thoughts: I normally do not write reviews . . . my time is too important to care. But this little device ruined a perfectly good HDD (tested with HD Tune Pro before and after). Possible heat issue with the metal case. I really do not know.

I got the enclosure so cheap that it would be counter productive to send it back for a return. It goes where it belongs . . . in the trash.

Transcend . . . YOU OWE ME A HITACHI 500GB 5400RPM 2.5 DRIVE!!! . . . as well as $12 for this waste of time.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks fine

Pros: inexpensive, easy installation

Cons: uses 2 USB ports

Other Thoughts: make sure you look inside before installing the HD. the little rubber insulator on mine came off the end cover, and was sitting in the middle

easy installation and works fine. it does use 2 USB ports though, so be aware of that.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little enclosure

Pros: Rock solid no-nonsense 2.5" enclosure. There are a lot of inferior enclosures out there... I highly recommend this one. Works fine with 1TB drives.

Cons: Does not magically hover above the floor when dropped.

Other Thoughts: I have two of these in my office with 1TB drives installed and they have worked fine from day one (purchased 1-31-14). I sync approx. 700GB of server data to one of them and carry it with me as an offsite backup. The other I use to migrate customer data when working on pc's and laptops. Never had a problem with data integrity on either.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Enclosure

Pros: Easy to use. Drive is snug. Durable. Windows 7 recognized it right off.

Cons: None really.

Other Thoughts: This is my second one. The first I basically used till it wore out from connecting and disconnecting the usb cable every day. I had a rosewill after the first transcend finally bought the farm. It was a nice enclosure too. But it seems to nod off and took forever to wake up. The transcend is much more responsive.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Deal

Pros: This drive enclosure WORKS!!! it's nothing special. BUT it does work, unlike others I've tried. The enclosure will only fit a 9.5 mm drive. Windows 7 Ultimate and Home Premium both see it immediately.

Cons: The only con might be that thicker drives will not fit.

4 out of 5 eggsIt Works

Pros: It does what it's supposed to.

Cons: It's a very tight squeeze getting an hdd in there, and then when you want to take the HDD out you have to open both ends and push it out with a screwdriver. A little annoying.

The end caps are poorly made. After a month or so of using it the end cap opposite the USB plug got chipped just from tightening the screw. Took another egg off for that.
