Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month
The sata controller works fine, getting reasonable speeds through USB 2.0 The housing is sturdy, compact and the pads included in the package reduce vibration to a very acceptable level.
The installation requires one major step (sliding apart the upper and lower half of the housing), which is not documented. You need to open the housing to be able to install the drive, so not documenting this step does not help.
After finding out how the housing works, the install is fairly straight forward (less then 5 minutes of work).
If you have a spare optical drive and your laptop has no space for it (because you've replaced it with SKU: 59276, a sata drive bay), this is a good option.
