works fine – 2.5" SATA USB 2.0 HDD Enclosure with Leather Pouch - Black Reviews

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

Pros:
case for my old ps3 harddrive - now i use it as a DNLA source for my TV. works well with my Netgear WNDR3700 router even if i can use only one USB socket (seagate HDD)
Cons:
gets pretty hot, there is no air ventilation, you just enclose the harddrive
Other:
i changed the two-ends cable to a regular one as i cannot use two USBs, it works well. I also drilled a few holes into the casing, so the drive can cool down a bit at least like this.
Bottomline:
cool, if you have a spare notebook/ps3 HDD, you can use it as a portable one
