5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Quickly allows usb access to 1.8" sata hard drives. I used this to recover data from a 1.8" 160gb toshiba laptop hard drive and it was quick and easy.

I also like the design of the drive enclosure. Compared to other ones I've seen it is well designed and seems to be a high quality product overall.

Having a 1.8" hard drive you need access to is an interesting problem, and you have almost no shot at finding any solutions at a brick-and-mortar store given the relative obscurity of 1.8" drives. Startech could've gotten a good review simply for doing the bare minimum but I feel like this earns five stars because it's affordable and genuinely well designed.

Cons: No complaints whatsoever, although I've only had it for a day and a half so I can't speak to durability over the long term.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: Works well. Has a blue LED activity light that is placed in a good spot. This case works well if you have an extra 1.5" SATA laptop drive lying around.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsSo far so good, nice kit

Pros: Excellent quality and value for the price. For $35 I turned an extra 160GB 1.8 drive into a reliable external HDD. The kit came with pads for a 5mm drive and fits an 8mm drive snugly without the pads. It also came with a sheath (similar to a blackberry case) that the drive slips into - very nice.

Cons: None. Even the blue drive activity light isn't ridiculously bright.

Other Thoughts: A 1.8" Toshiba SATA HDD fit perfectly in this unit. Win7 recognized it immediately as a hard drive (not removable storage) and has been working flawlessly for the hour or so it's been running.
