This review is from: COOLMAX HD-250BK-U3 Aluminum 2.5" Black SATA I/II USB 3.0 External Enclosure
Easy to install and remove/swap drives. Comes with USB 3.0 cable and screwdriver. Brushed black aluminum is visually appealing and feels solid even without a drive installed. Drive stays secure inside. Transfer speeds are better than expected from an old 60GB 5400RPM SATA-I drive that was collecting dust. Single USB connection with no external power adapter needed!
Included USB cable fits loosely on some machines, which won't allow the drive to be recognized even though the power LED is on. It's more noticeable on USB 2.0 ports than USB 3.0. Sometimes a bad connection will make the drive sound like "the click of death" until the cable is seated properly. Connection to the enclosure is solid.
Managed to get this on sale. Excellent value for the money then, but still wouldn't mind buying another at standard cost. The cheap bag got thrown away.
