Cheap an good Case – 2.5-inch Aluminum SATA Hard Disk Enclosure (USB 2.0 Port) Reviews

posted by MasterJulian on 05/15/2008 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Cheap
Looks Good
Worked perfect with my PC (Windows XP and Linux 2.6 Kernel)
Cons:
Its hard to get the HDD into the Case
Screws are not the best
The screwdriver that came with the case is to small -> useless (but hey who hasn't a screwdriver at home?)
There was white paint(?) on the PCB
Other:
I used it with my Samsung Spinpoint (160GB) and worked great. You may need to remove the PCP from the case in order to get the HDD in and screw every thing back on. Test the drive before you put the screws on because I don't think, that you can screw them on and off very often.
Bottomline:
Great device. Here is my Speedtest: http://img207.imageshack.us/my.php?image=speedtesttq3.png
