Pros:
Easy installation Works perfectly Fine build quality
Cons:
Only useful in combination with SSD
Other:
My laptop is ASUS F6V with 120GB SSD and the 2nd drive I used is Toshiba MK6459GSX (640GB). This caddy fits perfectly; I had no problems with the installation. What I like is that there are screw holes in the bottom so the hdd is not loose. This is good for reliability and low noise. No problem with drive temperature yet. I've set my power management to power down the hdd after 5 minutes when not used.
Bottomline:
I can recommend! The combination of SSD for system/programs and HDD for data is great.
