1 out of 5 eggsNext !

Pros: Fast USB 3.0
Rubber padding inside reduces vibrations
Looks professional

Cons: Glossy cover
Screws are very small and easy to grind
Died after a month and a half

Other Thoughts: It simply stopped working one day. My HDD would start spinning and stop right after the moment it should have been detected and mounted on my computer. The blue LED would not work either. I used it in another enclosure and it worked just fine.

5 out of 5 eggsNice drive

Pros: Small, fast, good power supply. I use this mostly at work to apply hdd images to desktops and laptops. Even in a USB2 port it has good speed. The best part is that it pulls enough power from the USB2 port to get the job done. This has always been a problem with these types of drives, even the ones with a dual plugin. Does not seem to heat up very much.

Cons: none so far. btw, teamed it up with a wd 500gb drive.

Other Thoughts: I've yet to try this on a USB3 port. Can hardly wait.

4 out of 5 eggsNice case

Pros: Nicely built I love the design, it is usb 3.0 which is a plus. Improved speeds even when using it with usb 2.0.

Cons: The case is all plastic not really an issue but one corner was a little off and even with the screw tighten all the way it leave a small gap. You can push on the corner and it will go into place but once you let go it pops back up not too big of a deal.

Other Thoughts: I would by another one if I need it.

4 out of 5 eggsLOOKS great, FEELS cheap, too pricey

Pros: This is a great case and looks very sleek, and has a very 'Apple/Mac' feel to it.

Installation was simple (the instructions are clear), and there is a magnetic Phillips screwdriver included, as well as an extra screw inside the enclosure. TIP: unscrew the logic board from inside of the enclosure, connect it to your HDD, then screw it back into place--I had a difficult time just sliding my HDD into place.

The included white USB cable is very thick and has a high-quality, sturdy feel to it. I also like that there's not an additional USB connection for power (just the one connection for data+power), as I dislike Y-split USB cables. The USB 3.0 is a nice touch, although I can't take advantage of it.

Cons: The enclosure on its own seems flimsy, for the plastic is very lightweight. Even with the added weight of the installed hard drive, it still has a light and almost cheap feel to it (not a deal breaker, but it looks a lot nicer on a desk than it feels in your hand).

The top looks and feels just like an Apple® Magic Mouse, and although it looks like brushed aluminum on the bottom, the entire enclosure is 100% plastic. The blue LED on the top stays illuminated even when idle, and flashes rapidly during activity--it's not too bright, but this might be annoying for some, especially if used in a dark room. The INEO logo is also smack-dab on the top center, which I'm not a huge fan of, but I knew that going in...

The USB 3.0 Micro B end of the cable doesn't really fit snuggly into the port on the enclosure at all (plenty of wiggle room), so this might become a major issue with regular use.

Other Thoughts: All in all, this is very nice looking case, although I think it's much too expensive based on the actual quality of the product. I also have a bad feeling about the loose connection on the USB 3.0 Micro B port, as it will probably get worse with time, and might eventually get too loose to the point that it no longer makes contact and stops working altogether.

If it wasn't for the discounted price plus the mail-in rebate, I probably wouldn't have purchased this item, but, for the most part, I am happy with it so far.

5 out of 5 eggsineo 3.0 usb

Pros: Item exactly as described, very high quality. cable is sturdy and durable. Looks great.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: This company provided a well thought out product. For starters, the manual is detailed and easy to follow. A magnetic screwdriver is included with this device, which is a nice bonus. As I was removing the screws to install the 2.5" drive, I happened to drop one of the screws and for the life of me could not find it... After 10 mins of searching I decided I would have to live with only 3 of the 4 screws, so I pop open the iNeo, and guess what I find.... the manufacturer has included an extra screw inside the case! Got everything put together and it works great in my testing so far. Would buy from this company again.

5 out of 5 eggsQuite Impressed

Pros: Item exactly as described, everything seems to be very high quality. cable is sturdy and durable. Looks nice.

Cons: Can't really think of any, solid product delivers exactly what you want.

Other Thoughts: I hardly ever write reviews, but had such a good experience with this product I felt I should commend the company for providing a well thought out product. For starters, the manual is detailed and easy to follow. A magnetic screwdriver is included with this device, which is a nice bonus. As I was removing the screws to install the 2.5" drive, I happened to drop one of the screws and for the life of me could not find it...
