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

Pros:
- Outer cover looks good.
- Build quality is decent. (better than i expected) :)
- Getting a data transfer rate of 28 - 30 MBPS (which is good).
- Works with my 200 GB 7200 rpm with no problems. :)
Cons:
It needs two usb ports to function. :(
Other than that, i don't find any other con in this hdd enclosure.
Other:
Since it occupies two usb ports, I ordered a USB hub (7 ports). sku 678.
You may need to consider it if you don't have enough ports in your computer.
Bottomline:
This hard drive enclosure is very cheap when compared to other enclosures sold in other online retail stores.
I'd recommend this to anyone who has an external hard disk that is sleeping in their closet. ;)
