1 out of 5 eggsEnclosure For What?

Pros: None except newegg shipped it quickly. Oh the led light lights up.

Cons: Will not read a hard drive nor an SSD. This case is very thin and flimsy. It is hard to open and when you get it open and put the drive in it won't read the drives.

Other Thoughts: This enclosure is not well made at all. The case is like it's made from about 4 layers of heavy duty aluminum foil. I don't know why I even bought it.
I would not recommend this to anyone. And I'm not easy to complain but this thing is junk. This review was written to try and warn people about this enclosure so they will know about it.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Does what it says. Covers the hard drive

Cons: Metal is thin but then I do not count on using it to hold up any weight. Not sure what will happen if something is dropped on it.

Other Thoughts: Thought it would be flimsy but once the drive was in it, it worked out just fine. LED light is bright and easy to see that when the drive is working.
