cheap hdd case – 2.5" SATA USB 2.0 HDD Enclosure with Leather Pouch - Silver Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Very cheap, no tools needed. Just open the case with your fingers and slide in a 2,5" drive. Drives can be swapped in a matter of seconds.
I've used a 200G 7k Hitachi drive which works perfectly.
Works fine with Linux (no driver needed)
Comes with a Y-cable but I only needed to insert one USB into the pc. I guess this depends on the power the drive consumes, but the chipset doesn't need two cables. Simple pouch include.
Led shows if hdd is connected and if active or not.
Cons:
Case doesn't close very tight. Some of these hdd cases come with a few screws to fix the case. This one is just pressed to close.
Other:
Bottomline:
value for money!
