cheep HD enclosure. it does the job – SATA USB 2.0 Hard Disk Enclosure for 2.5-inch HDD Reviews

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

Pros:
-the metal case is rather durrable though i wouldn't drop anything heavy on it.
-the HD fits nicely in the case and connects to the board with no problem.
-it looks prety good if you don't have to tape it.
Cons:
-other then the metal case it's a bit cheeply built.
-the screws are VERY small and easy to lose and prone to popping out. lost one in the first 5 min and had to tape it closed.
-the back end is held in very weakly. it's pretty tight when a drive is in it but you can break it very easy.
Other:
i'd be willing to try some of the cheaper enclosures on DX next time but in the mean time i'm pretty happy with this one.
Bottomline:
works fine. a bit cheep but it should work fine for what most people generally need. just try not to lose the screws :P
