    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Cheap, fast and easy to use. As wide as the sata connector, and not longer than nessesary. Tested with a FW800 interface and doing so the FW 800 seems to be the bottleneck.

    Cons:

    The Sata connector is welded ontop of the circuit board, and the components on the other side of the board are much higher than they need to be (1-2mm). Due to this the unit does not fit in a Sata-dock for example. (without modding the sata dock).

    On the opposite side, there is a jumper-switch witch ads 5-6mm of thickness more then necessary.

    There are three possible options on the jumper switch, there is no information other then on chineese, of what they do.

    OtherThoughts:

    The jumpers height issue is pretty easy to get around. Just cut them down with pliers and weld together. For me its perfect, since i had an old SSD lying around.

    Im planing to build a cabinet with a SKU: 172080, to get a small usb3/SSD external drive.

    If your planing on mounting in to a 2.5" Sata cabinet im sorry to disappoint you, its way to long to fit (a sata hdd is also much wider, so you would end up carrying around a lot of air).

    Bottomline:

    Great if your planing to use it in a DIY project. Could be a bit cheaper, but im guessing since there are very few similar products out there, just it being available makes it a bargain.
