  • Does what it says on the tin

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    Installing the hard drive to the chassis was a snap and the IDE-SATA interface works very reliably. Very affordable price must also be considered a pro.

    Cons:

    The screw holes that were meant for fastening the chassis to the computer (mine is a 2008 MacBook Pro) were too small for the screws, so I couldn't secure it in place at all. This is the reason for quality and ease of use not being 5 stars as well.

    OtherThoughts:

    There isn't much to say about a device this simple. However, I saved a lot of money compared to some other solutions on the market.

    Bottomline:

    If you're in the market for a hard drive chassis that fits in place of your IDE optical drive, this is highly recommended. Even with the issue mentioned, the usability value is far higher than the money it costs.
