Pretty Good – 2.5-inch Aluminum SATA Hard Disk Enclosure (USB 2.0 Port) Reviews

This is the only enclosure I have tried thus far that worked properly with my Conexsat PVR in combination with a 60GB Hitachi SATA drive. The STB can power the drive without extra power.
It was difficult to put together and the included cable is poor quality. While the case has an aux-power plug (not to be mistaken for the extra USB plug) it does not include a cable, these cables are virtually impossible to find unless they are bundled with another enclosure.
I am not sure the drive enclosure provides adaquate shielding
A similar drive enclosure is sold locally around here for $35.
It does the job I bought it for very well, I would buy it again without hesitation.
