Light and useful enclosure – 2.5-inch USB 2.0 IDE HDD Enclosure Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
- This is a thin lightweight 2.5 hard disk enclosure made of black plastic and looks pretty good. - The box comes with a split USB cable giving you extra power when there's not enough voltage. - Easy to install. There are only two screws. There's a screwdriver in the box. - Comes with a leather-like protective case.
Cons:
- It looks a little cheap.
- Doesn't have an external DC power input (your USB must provide sufficient power).
- There are no screws to hold the hard drive, although it holds up inside pretty well.
Other:
It's been connected to a USB for over a week without any disconnection. Easily recognized by my computer. I've tested it with a 80GB IDE 2.5 hard drive.
Bottomline:
It's cheap. It's thin. It works well.
