5 out of 5 eggsExactly as described

Pros: Does exactly as it says. Opened box, hooked it up, worked flawlessly. Have only used 3.5" drives, but I'm assuming that 2.5" ones would work just as well. Convenient, easy to use. Hot swappable.

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: Had my other computer go down, used this to transfer files from the system drive. Works great.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes everything I needed it to do

Pros: - Light
- Portable
- Does exactly what it suppose to do
- Long enough cables for most computer set ups .
- allowed me to transfer data at relatively good speeds from my old HDD to new ones
- must have for most tech people

Cons: - went on sale 3 days after I bought it :(

Other Thoughts: This is a must have tool for any serious comp tech often times people want their data transferred from old drive to to the new computer and this tool allows you to do just that . Transfer rates are pretty decent and the unit itself is super light and portable .

5 out of 5 eggsGreat external readers.

Pros: Easy to use, just like a toaster. Works. Relatively inexpensive.

Cons: USB only, so not the fastest. But compatible with everything, so I shouldn't complain.

Other Thoughts: I have two on my desk connected full-time. I have used a bunch of different 2.5" and 3.5" drives in them with no issues. I just ordered two more. Why bother with enclosures that require screws? Let the drives stay cool by being exposed to air.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks fine

Pros: Flap/door aligns 2.5 or 3.5 drive just right. Power switch to turn it off when not in use.

Cons: Price seems high compared to external enclosures.

2 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: Portable, external HDD docking... yes devices like these can be quite handy.

Cons: DOA - as is often the case, the cheaply made Chinese AC adapter was dead on arrival. I'm really getting tired of dead AC adapters from China, it's ridiculously common.

Other Thoughts: I ordered two, at least one of them worked. RMA'ing the dead one, annoying hassle.
