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

    Pros:

    * good price

    * solid case

    * simple styling

    * supports USB2

    * comes with all tools and cables required to use the caddy

    * no configuration or drivers required, just works on both Linux and Windows

    * drive stays nice and cool

    * simple led to indicate status

    Cons:

    * usb cable length on the extra power connector was a bit short, my laptop didnt have two usb ports right next to each other but an extension cable solved this

    OtherThoughts:

    * buy two as you'll find a use for another one at some point

    Bottomline:

    Well priced USB2 external caddy. I used this with a 2.5" sata drive which I had spare after upgrading a PS3 and have used it extensively since then. Managed a good 30mb/sec when copying so it more than definitely works on USB2 and being ally it has that techy kind of look and keeps the drive at a reasonable temp
