This review is from: APRICORN EZ-UP-UNIVERSAL 2.5" IDE / SATA USB 2.0 Hard Drive Upgrade Kit
Pros: No hassle installation of HDD from brand new laptop (laptop runs from SSD) . Using throgh USB3 port as a backup drive. Slick and nice gear.
Cons: None so far, hopefully ever.
Other Thoughts: Has an additional 5V DC socket, adapter has to be bought separately. Might be useful for energy hungry drives.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Easy installation. Loaded with SSD works fine so far.
Cons: Requires USB 2.0 Y (double) cable to connect - did not notice that in the description. Inconveniet on a laptop with a limited USB ports.
When tried to use single cable computer froze after some time - seems like underpower issue.
Pros: Great rugged hard drive. Lives mostly in a backpack, sometimes carried under rain and snow. Stores and delivers data as promised.
Cons: Somewhat heavy and pricey, but has its purpose.
Other Thoughts: Requires fully USB 3 or double USB 2 port to work. Might be somewhat nuisance on older laptops with not many USB ports.
Also on Windows laptops I found that "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" checkbox shuould be unchecked under Device Manager. USB Root Hub,Power Management. Otherwise drive may disconnect spuriously.
