    Pros:
    Is a cheap USB HDD enclosure. The double cable is a nice touch that does not have many of the others enclosures. The cable is quite short, but I think that's enough.
    Cons:
    The disc couplings are weak and the plastic cover is easily damaged, but are not important things (considering the price of the...

    posted by monnier on 01/18/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    It seems to work fine, the Y cable is welcome, although I did not need it until now (but I have needed it with my old PATA enclosure), and its aesthetics is quite accpetable.
    Cons:
    None of my tools were able to get detailed info about the disk, e.g. no SMART data, no hdparm info, no control over spin down. ...

    Good product

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

    Pros:
    Very strong enclosure. The price is awesome. Great for rescuing important files from those old IDE drives. Perfect of running live linux distros on any PC on the fly. Still not tested with USB 3.0, but the rates with 2.0 are correct with small and large files.
    Cons:
    None by now.

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

    Pros:
    Comes in a box with a thin leather like pocket pouch + small screwdriver + cable. The USB 3 cable has additional connector for an extra power supply which is good. The cable is also colored blue which helps me remember to connect it to the USB 3 port.
    Cons:
    No complaint whatsoever so far. Maybe they could sell another version of this product without the extra screwdriver and pouch f...
