    Is a cheap USB HDD enclosure. The double cable is a nice touch that does not have many of the others enclosures. The cable is quite short, but I think that's enough. The disc couplings are weak and the plastic cover is easily damaged, but are not important things (considering the price of the item). Externally it is not very nice, but I prefer a good ...

    I´ve received this article at ARGENTINA at about 25 days from the order. It seems to be durable the aluminium case, and it comes with a leather black cover like the photos. very easy to use: connect the HDD, put it inside the enclosure, close it with the screws and the screwdriver (included!!), connect to the PC, and enjoy a 640 GB drive!!! =P ...

    - The item is very compact - Do not heat - Is very cheap when you compare to other goog quality products - it do not use an external power supply, just uses the usb power. - The cover should be fixed by a button or something like that, just it. - I have installed ubuntu in the Hd and I boot every time from this external drive and have no problems. -...

    It seems to work fine, the Y cable is welcome, although I did not need it until now (but I have needed it with my old PATA enclosure), and its aesthetics is quite accpetable. None of my tools were able to get detailed info about the disk, e.g. no SMART data, no hdparm info, no control over spin down. The screws required more force than I expected, so ... Read more

    Easy to assemble, decent quality. Really aluminium. Fast as f**k even with 5200RPM disk inside (more than 200MB/s). Free tiny screwdriver and the pouch made of whatever. Normal sized USB on both sides of the cable. Other side of box than the cable is is not very tightly fasten. Found the same one in my country (czech republic) for just +1€. More than ... Read more

    Very strong enclosure. The price is awesome. Great for rescuing important files from those old IDE drives. Perfect of running live linux distros on any PC on the fly. Still not tested with USB 3.0, but the rates with 2.0 are correct with small and large files. None by now. Maybe the connector could be the mini-USB as usual, but really this is not a ... Read more

    Comes in a box with a thin leather like pocket pouch + small screwdriver + cable. The USB 3 cable has additional connector for an extra power supply which is good. The cable is also colored blue which helps me remember to connect it to the USB 3 port. No complaint whatsoever so far. Maybe they could sell another version of this product without the extra ...
