2.5" SATA USB 3.0 HDD Enclosure with Pouch - Grey – 2.5" SATA USB 3.0 HDD Enclosure with Pouch - Grey (Super-Speed 5Gbps) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
When it works it's great. See cons.
Build is fine and what you would expect even at a higher priice.
Cons:
On a Windows 7 machine, I found if you try this device with the supplied USB3 cable it will not work on a USB2.0 port. You need to get your own USB 2.0 cable and it will work better but still intermittent.
It only worked reliably on an XP machine with a USB 2 cable on a USB 2 port.
Other:
Not worth doing a warranty if it might be a fault with mine! Compare my finding with other users before assuming all of these are dodgy.
Bottomline:
Read other buyers comments.
