    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Easy to put together, lightweight, manual is easy to understand, stylish

    Cons:

    Middle of the frame made of plastic that can break when tightening the screws.

    OtherThoughts:

    Installing IDE drives requires some care, as you have to put them at a slight angle first. Also, red power light may "drown out" the blue "drive operating" light if you don't put some kind of divider between them (a piece of cardboard or plasticard is fine, you can carefully glue it to the IDE plug).

    Bottomline:

    If you happen to have an old laptop hard drive lying around and the need to carry large amounts of data with you, this enclosure seems to be a good enough choice. Two interfaces are a great feature if you plan to upgrade or need to work with different drives.
