Veryy good enclosure – 2.5-inch Aluminum SATA Hard Disk Enclosure (USB 2.0 Port) Reviews

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

Pros:
Works right out of box. Nice black color with a bunch of tiny holes in it. Feels fairly sturdy since the case is aluminum.
Cons:
The screws were pretty small and putting them in was some what difficult. When plugging in the hard drive I had to remove the SATA interface because i couldn't fit it in there.
Other:
The "leather" case isn't very sturdy because the stitching is starting to come off.
Hooked this up to a 200GB 7200 RPM drive. Don't think size really matters just as long as there's enough power feeding the drive.
Bottomline:
For $12 some bucks its a decent enclosure and does the job well.
