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

Pros:
- It's USB3.0, cable included - it's easy to assemble (not many parts) - pouch included - added extra screws, in case you lose them (they are tiny!) - WD label makes it look legit - It's really fast!
Cons:
- you have to use some force to fully close it - the chip part was just laying around in the box - it's not the cheapest thing out there - I don't really see what's 'anti-shock' about it, case is plastic with metal covers, no rubber or anything like that
Other:
- the blue LED is REALLY bright, it bothers me a little when it's pulsing.
Bottomline:
I swapped my laptop HDD for SSD and used this case to make an external drive out of my laptop disk. It's not the cheapest thing, but I got it because of anti-shock and USB3.0. It gets the job done, works like it should, if the price is not to high, get it, it will do well.
