USB 3.0 2.5 HARD DRIVE SATA HDD EXTERNAL CASE ENCLOS
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

1 out of 5 eggs Poorly designed 06/03/2014

This review is from: USB 3.0 2.5 HARD DRIVE SATA HDD EXTERNAL CASE ENCLOS

Pros: Didn't work so none really

Cons: I have an old hard drive from a laptop that gave out on me, the hard drive is filled with personal and work documents as well as family photos. Shame on me for not backing it up but i thought turning it into an external drive would be my solution. This enclosure has a split USB connection. One USB to connect to windows and another to add some power to the device. I have tried this on 3 machines, 2 laptops and a home theater build none of the machines could actually access the files in the hard drive. When I plug into the home theater box it immediately powers off, when I plug into my laptops I get a message that the USB is experiencing a power surge. If I only plug in the main usb the HDD doesn't have power and can't be accessed but can be picked up by windows so I can't use it at all. Very disappointed and hope to get an RMA shortly. The worst part is I have been plugging around trying to make the thing work for a week before I realized what the issue is.
