    It works properly

    posted by joseini on 11/03/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    A day working and it runs perfectly. The price is unbelievable. I have been searching for this item at pc components shops and it costs four or five times more. Easy to connect.
    Cons:
    Very poor construction quality. It seems fragile. I hope it wont broke. The SATA cable is too short.
