Nice and working – Designer's Universal 2.5" SATA to SATA HDD Caddy for 12.7mm Optical Drive Reviews

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

Pros:
Nice plactic blister package, anti-scratch protective film for the device which is easy to remove... Fits perfectly and functions well. Great build quality and affordable price. All 4 screws fit my SSD like a charm! Lightning read-write speed (no difference between "caddy" and "no-caddy" installations). It's fine for SSD.
Cons:
For some reasons the blue activity LED doesn't turn off. It doesn't distract but seems strange. No front panel included (not actually a big con, but having it would be a big pro for sure).
Other:
Needs a cap (laptop's original CD/DVD front panel). Possibly not acceptable for HDDs which produce lots of heat.
Bottomline:
It's usable and useful, it's cheap. I'm 99% satisfied. Small cons are not sighnificant to be simply ignored.
