Very tight case – Protective Plastic Case for 3.5" SATA HDD (Translucent) Reviews

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

Pros:
It's a very tight snug case. I'm using Seagate Barracuda HDDs so it's somewhat understandable.
It works just as it's described. The HDD won't shake or move in the case and it should take a few bumps.
Build quality is good with a tight latch.
Cons:
Hard to get HDD into and out of the case the first time. Tight fit
Will prob absorb shocks but not shaking (you shouldn't be shaking your HDD in the first place)
Other:
Make sure you place your HDD in where there is a grip on the HDD to pull it out again. It's very tight.
If you place the HDD ports facing outwards you can the HDD via cables. But it's not advisable due to heat issues. Also if you have a fast HDD it'll shake the case and generally be noisy.
Bottomline:
It's a pretty decent case for moving your HDD around. I would not advise using this case for shock proofing your HDD (there are better case for that in DX) but good enough if you need to drop the HDD into your backpack.
