Pros:
Does exactly what it advertise. But you better be ready for some elbow grease. Construction is good but with some catch.
Cons:
White chalk like paint on mine.
Plastic in the middle is of low quality (hey it's cheap so I expected this)
HDD was hard to fit in. Plastic burrs weren't completely removed, so I had to remove it to fit.
The HDD socket was at an angle. Looking at the design, they're all most likely in the same position. It makes it tricky to push the HDD in place.
Other:
Well for the price I'm not complaining. Just wanted the next buyer to know what they're getting.
It does work and pretty well by the looks of it so far.
Bottomline:
It's a good buy at a cheap price. Don't expect wonders, I got this because I was after something cheap.
If you're handy with tools, this comes recommended. :)
