Excellent value USB2 2.5" SATA Caddy – SATA USB 2.0 Hard Disk Enclosure for 2.5-inch HDD Reviews

Pros:
* good price
* solid case
* simple styling
* supports USB2
* comes with all tools and cables required to use the caddy
* no configuration or drivers required, just works on both Linux and Windows
* drive stays nice and cool
* simple led to indicate status
Cons:
* usb cable length on the extra power connector was a bit short, my laptop didnt have two usb ports right next to each other but an extension cable solved this
Other:
* buy two as you'll find a use for another one at some point
Bottomline:
Well priced USB2 external caddy. I used this with a 2.5" sata drive which I had spare after upgrading a PS3 and have used it extensively since then. Managed a good 30mb/sec when copying so it more than definitely works on USB2 and being ally it has that techy kind of look and keeps the drive at a reasonable temp
