Worth The Money – USB 2.0 IBM-Compatible 2.5-inch HDD-Enclosure Reviews

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

Pros:
This 2.5" metallic HDD enclosure is really very cheap. Comes with a screw-driver and a leather-like case, USB cable -with 2 heads for drawing extra power when one USB bus cannot provide sufficient power-. Accepts 2.5" Parallel ATA IDE hard drives. Also it does not get hot during operation.
Cons:
No, actually.
Other:
I am using this to transfer files between my home PC and some colleagues' PC's. It works fine. I believe this is cooler than carrying one of those expensive 8 or 16 GB USB Flash Disks.
Bottomline:
If you have a 2.5" Parallel ATA IDE hard drive fooling around, buy this item and you will be happy to make an old friend work again.
