2.5 inch SATA drives dont fit! – 2.5" SATA USB 2.0 HDD Enclosure with Leather Pouch - Black Reviews

Pros:
I fitted a Fujitsu MHX2250BT drive into this enclosure, and it works as a USB connected HDD. BUT!
Cons:
The back of the enclosure does not fit on. The drive is too thick by at least 2mm for the back to clip on. Both the front and the back of the enclosure are the same size, and I am not sure if a mistake was made in the unit that was sent to me, or if it is a bad design.
Other:
For the price of the unit, I did not think it was worth making a fuss with Dealextreme, but I certainly would not recommend this unit to anyone.
Bottomline:
It works as an external HDD enclosure if you want to wrap tape around it to hold it together!
