Cheap enclosure does the job – 2.5" SATA USB 2.0 HDD Enclosure with Leather Pouch - Red Reviews

posted by Termik on 08/02/2012 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
* Lightweight enclosure, easy to bring along * Includes a Y-USB cable for use with drives needing more power than one USB port can supply. * Includes a protective pouch or sleeve
Cons:
* No space for HDD shielding or screws * Metal case may be too thin to provide sufficient protection for hard use, so take care * No shock-absorbing for drive, so avoid bumps and drops, especially when drive is running * Case fits nicely initially, but may become loose over time - can be fixed with adhesive tape (or a rubber band) - or by using the included protective pouch * The edge of the outer case half feels a bit sharp and may scratch delicate surfaces - mask it with tape or use the included pouch
Other:
* The case is available in different colours (different SKUs) - so you can have several easily identifiable disks for different purposes. * The drive LED is very bright
Bottomline:
Recommended: It's a good and cheap solution for reusing surplus laptop drives - Buy the number and colours to suit your needs!
