5 out of 5 eggsSimple solution that works well.

Pros: - Fits perfectly in a 3.5in slot
- Connections are simple
- Cables included (attached)
- Still registers the drives as their proper SATA speeds.
- Is a perfect solution for my needs.
-Well built, not flimsy. (I am gentle with it though).

Cons: - Bright LED's (easily covered with electrical tape when the cartridge is opened). I just don't like to be distracted by blinking lights; it's just me, I know.

Other Thoughts: I think it can be misunderstood what this device is. I bought it with an extra cartridge. This allows me to use one machine with two completely different drives and OS's. I know I could have done a dual boot system, but I wanted each drive to be dedicated. This device is not an external drive. I use it so I can have a system drive and another drive stashed away in a safe place. Some OS's cannot be dual booted, so this works well in that case.

1 out of 5 eggsUseless

Pros: Came fast??

Cons: New 2.5 two terabyte hard drive will not fit in it and no 3.5 hard drive mounting hardware to quick swap it either so you need the whole kit and that means buying it twice and still cant use the extra big capacity drives anyway just useless??

Other Thoughts: Good paperweight!!
