5 out of 5 eggsHad Other Intentions

Pros: I did not buy this for the intended use. I bought it to use as an external adapter for removing the data off of laptop drives and it works perfect. I work on computers and this is a handy adapter.

Cons: None

1 out of 5 eggsWorse Enclosure ever

Pros: It's a enclosure, nothing more nothing less. It at least came with everything.

Cons: The first enclosure I ever bought and the last from this company. When it got here, it seemed to appear normal but it was far from it. When I put my old drive it, it was loose beyond words. I had to use pieces of the box that it came in so I could keep it secure. Should just be a simple two way usb cord. You have to go through trial and error to find out which way goes which, a waste of my time.

Other Thoughts: The company who makes these needs to step their game up.

5 out of 5 eggsBetter than the last 2.5" enclosure I bought.

Pros: Simple SATA connector. Self powered via dual USB cable. SUPPORTS S.M.A.R.T. passthrough!!! First external case I've used that allows you to query or perform S.M.A.R.T. diagnostics on the drive over a USB connection. That's awesome. For that reason alone it rocks.

Cons: None that I can tell thus far.

Other Thoughts: If I had known this thing supported S.M.A.R.T. I would have bought two. Gonna have to put another order in for another one.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks, but feels really cheap

Pros: Works just like an enclosure should. Plug a drive in, plug it in to the computer, use like a USB mass storage device. Powered entirely from two USB ports (cord included)

Cons: Feels really cheap. The tiny tiny screws don't work, non-standard plug (USB A to USB A, thankfully the cable is provided but I'm scared of losing it).

Other Thoughts: I needed this to fill out my complement of enclosures - desktop and laptop, IDE and SATA each. I don't use it like an external drive, so I basically just use the header and bare drives. The cheapness would bother me if I used it consistently, or tried to carry it around in a laptop bag or something.

5 out of 5 eggsCheap and works

Pros: Cheap and just works. Case is metal and dumps most of the drive heat.

Cons: May need to jam a little bit of paper into the non-connector end of the case between the drive and the case... it's not an exact tight fit and the drive can rattle a teeny bit.

Other Thoughts: I've bought various cheap cases like this one and not had a problem - this one is no exception.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works great plug & play. put a 100 gig HDD in with vista on it.. ran drive wiper with CCleaner. worked flawlessly

Cons: no screws for the left and right sides of the enclosure.. kinda irratating i mean not i have to actually leave my house to get some 50 cent screws to keep my hDD from falling out LOL on another note i'll just use a piece of tape

Other Thoughts: deff. worth the $10.. knocked out one egg for the missing screws

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: Does the job and the price was more that right.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Bought this to clone my laptops HDD to a new WD 500GB I bought at the same time. Once I got my cloning software sorted out, this enclosure worked fine.
I have had interference troubles (moire on the display) with some external HDD cases before, no troubles with this one.

5 out of 5 eggsBright Blue Light

Pros: Works! No Issues Yet! Includes a nice 'Y' USB cable.

Cons: BRIGHT BLUE LED!

This Crazy Blue Light comes on when the drive is powered on. I had to cover it with a piece of black electrical tape.
