5 out of 5 eggsVery Quick and Painless, no coaxing to find the device

Pros: Setup was quick and efficient, no nonsense. Just slip in, screw tight, and away you go.

Cons: None at all.

1 out of 5 eggsAvoid at all costs

Pros: Cheap

Cons: unclear instructions, badly translated as well, very cheap and weak material, short USB cable, didn't even register as having been plugged in

Other Thoughts: Avoid this like the plague. Not sure but i think it was DOA. It wouldn't have been worth the price of shipping to return it, so i have to forget about ~$15.

1 out of 5 eggsDEAD

Pros: Price

Cons: Purchased two of these. One died soon after it arrived, the other died just after the 1 year warranty was up.

Other Thoughts: I'm going to steer clear of Masscool from now on.

1 out of 5 eggsStopped working after minimal use

Pros: Cheap price.

Cons: Cheap construction. Unreliable..

Other Thoughts: I had a 5400 rpm/500 Gb drive installed and connected to a media player. It got used perhaps a few times a month. After 6 months, it simply stopped working. Wouldn't power up.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks as it should, with some concerns

Pros: Easy to use and put together, use any laptop hard drive, Very fast 80mb/s for a 5400 rpm hard drive.

Cons: Screwdriver in package doesn't work great at all, cheaply put together screwdriver that turns on its handle and not at the head. So if you have a small screwdriver for electronics that would be your best bet to get this together correctly. Could have had a micro usb connection but that's OK. I have seen one issue i really don't like, after about id say 15 seconds of no activity the drive spins down to a slow speed and 15 later the device spins down totally. That is not going to be good on the hard drive after prolonged use, that's just my opinion though.

Other Thoughts: I wished there was a second LED for activity but it was $15 with shipping. You can't beat that. I would get another one of these for the speed of the device. usb 2.0 and 3.0 work perfectly fine between my laptop and desktop.
I would recommend anyone getting this if you got a spare 500 gig laptop drive laying around

3 out of 5 eggsSo So

Pros: Cheap, aluminum body, USB 3.0

Cons: Plastic ends break easy.

Other Thoughts: The one I got had plastic push tabs to remove the plastic end. Once I put the hard drive in I had to push very hard to re-close the plastic end. The plastic nubs broke off and I had to super glue the plastic end. Will never be able to change the hard drive without destroying the plastic end.

5 out of 5 eggsBest value for a 2.5" SATA drive

Pros: Inexpensive.
Durable.
Standard USB 3.0 port.
No AC adapter required.
Fast transfer speed whether it's a HDD or SDD inside.

Cons: The only weak spot might be the retention screws when closing it up after the drive is installed - be very careful to not torque them down too much, or you might strip out the holes. Has not happened to me, but I can foresee that happening to someone that takes zero care with a screwdriver. Go slow and use at least a little bit of common sense and caution.

Other Thoughts: Having owned two of these for over a year now, I can attest to the quality and durability. I upgraded both my laptops to SSD's and placed the factory installed HDD's in these enclosures. Recently reverted my oldest laptop back to the factory HDD and put the SDD in this enclosure. I think of it as making my own 128GB USB 3.0 flash drive in a nice durable aluminum housing that I can toss in my laptop bag and not worry about fragility.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible

Pros: Looks good

Cons: Doesn't work

Other Thoughts: Didn't work with my Vertex 4 SSD. Tried different formats on drive, different USB ports, everything. Nothing worked. RMA'd for a new one, same problem. Unless you own one of the few drives that this thing actually works with, you will be disappointed. Look elsewhere.
