1 out of 5 eggskill me now

Pros: It only cost $7.
It might possibly work if you never have to open it.

Cons: Where to start?
Once it's closed you are up the proverbial creek. I had to open mine with a wood chisel and a rubber mallet. I suggest breaking off all the tabs when you get it and wrapping it with packaging tape.
To fit a 2.5" drive inside you have to tear out the little rubber mounts that are supposed to protect it.
After all that, it doesn't work. Two computers, neither could detect it. Maybe my brand-new SSD is the problem, but I wouldn't bet on it.

Other Thoughts: Stupid pointless junk.

2 out of 5 eggsDo NOT use to swap out hard drive

Pros: Nice color.
Fits together "snugly."

Cons: Once it is closed it is closed forever! I put in a solid state hard drive to copy out my OEM, then install the SSHD and use the OEM in the case as external storage. The cover wouldn't close with the SSHD in, so I took it out to see if it was a problem with the snaps. Well, it wasn't. It is now snapped together and empty, because I can't get it open!
Well, at least it isn't locked shut with the HD inside-- I don't see how I could hacksaw this thing open and leave the HD intact.

Other Thoughts: What a nightmare.

4 out of 5 eggsNice little drive!

Pros: Small, compact, easy to setup, like the color.

Cons: Possibly difficult to swap drives in/out of, cheap plastic case, wish the bottom half was aluminum not some cheap metal, someone needs to get a different adhesive on the back.

Other Thoughts: Supernerd hits this one on the head! Great little cheap case, minus a star for the sticker on the back, someone obviously didn't check whether that would leave a residue and it does! The bottom half of the case is a cheap metal, I'd gladly pay a few extra bucks for aluminum.

5 out of 5 eggsHidden GEM. Beautiful, simple, elegant. tool-less snap design!!

Pros: Marvelous, popped out of box, snapped two pieces together (literally) plug into usb and DONE. six stars if they didn't put a HUGE white serial # sticker I had to scrape off and remove residue w/ alcohol ;) Being nitpicky here

Cons: Nadda. Zilch.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat,cheap

Pros: all pros,great product,cheap,perfect.

Cons: none,zero,uh,maybe the blue light is too bright

Other Thoughts: you only need to attach one of the connectors to the port,the first one with two wires running to it.if you attach only the second one it won't work,it's an extra power connector,if needed.
i suspect anyone who says the cable doesn't work attached the wrong connector

4 out of 5 eggsNice enclosure

Pros: Very slim, LED indicator light, Aluminum body, & its snap connect design, all make it a rare buy for the price!!! If you know what your buying, because some buyers here do not & then complain afterwards, then you should really like this enclosure.

Cons: The color might be a con for some, for me there are only a couple of cons; one is that there doesn't seem to be any real shock absorption for the drive. Although unless you buy an enclosure that is ruggedized for shock, then none of them fully protect against shock, some do provide more protection than others by design, & this one doesn't provide much at all. But knowing that it was a slim enclosure at purchase, it wasn't much of a surprise. The only real con for me is the enclosure is somewhat tough to re-open after you have closed it. It snaps into place & is a tad bit tricky to re-open. I have many enclosures, & I always prefer quick connect enclosures so if I needed I could quickly switch between drives in a single enclosure without screwing drives in & out, with this one, the snap connect feature might be slower than screws.

Other Thoughts: I rather enjoy the color only because I swap out all of my old laptop drives eventually & have plenty of identical drives laying around & have to label them so I can distinguish them, so the color, although not my preference, is welcomed for me. It does what I need it to do, so its worth every penny for me. No real cons worth not purchasing more of them.

3 out of 5 eggsEconomical little HDD enclosure

Pros: Um..... it seems to work sufficiently.
Slick color (mine was yellow)

Cons: Plastic construction.

As others have mentioned, I'd guess that if you ever had the need to remove your HDD from this unit, you'll probably break the tabs getting it open!

Other Thoughts: Inexpensive plastic construction, and the case was very tricky to close. My guess is that opening it down the road will lead to catastrophic failure of the locking tabs rendering it useless w/o duct tape or the like. ;']

5 out of 5 eggssimple and easy

Pros: Took less than a minute to put together. Seems solidly built.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: simplest external enclosure I've ever used, I'd recommend it and will get another one when I get another 2.5 in. drive.
