Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Price is OK. Easy to install. Recognized without any problems by Win XP and Win 7. Pouch included. USB 3.0 cable included (it is thick). As expected, green LED is turned on when connected and blinking during data transfer,
Cons:
Doesn't have any anti shock protection (except pouch).
Other:
Tested on two computers, but only using USB 2.0. I put Toshiba 320 GB 5400 rpm inside. It works OK on Win XP and Win 7. Transfer speed is about 20 MB/s in both cases.
Bottomline:
If someone else confirms that it has no problems using it over USB 3.0 then this product should be recommended.
