  • Light and useful enclosure

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    - This is a thin lightweight 2.5 hard disk enclosure made of black plastic and looks pretty good.
    - The box comes with a split USB cable giving you extra power when there's not enough voltage.
    - Easy to install. There are only two screws. There's a screwdriver in the box.
    - Comes with a leather-like protective case.

    Cons:

    - It looks a little cheap.

    - Doesn't have an external DC power input (your USB must provide sufficient power).

    - There are no screws to hold the hard drive, although it holds up inside pretty well.

    OtherThoughts:

    It's been connected to a USB for over a week without any disconnection. Easily recognized by my computer. I've tested it with a 80GB IDE 2.5 hard drive.

    Bottomline:

    It's cheap. It's thin. It works well.
