Slim metal HDD case – 2.5" SATA USB 2.0 HDD Enclosure with Leather Pouch - Black Reviews

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

Pros:
Nice clean looks. Comes with standard accesories, USB cord and pouch. Completely made out of metal, makes for decent heat sinking. The finish is nice and even and seems durable enough. The whole thing is pretty small, not much larger than the 2.5" disk it houses. The quality of the fake leather pouch is ok, I do not use it but it seems ok.
Cons:
Needs a drop or two of CA glue to stay fully closed though it does not open accidentally in its original state.
Other:
Does not need the extra power USB connector to work. I use it with a WD blue caviar 320GB disk and it works perfectly. Speed is ~30-35MB/s on a standard USB 2.0 controller.
Bottomline:
A great price for a very nice HDD enclosure.
