Great and Cheap USB Enclosure – 2.5-inch USB 2.0 IDE HDD Enclosure Reviews

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

Pros:
I am using this enclosure with a standard laptop hd. It works without any problems under Ubuntu Gutsy and Hardy. The build quality of the enclosure is ok.
Cons:
It needs 2 USB ports to operate. But I think this is normal for that kind of accessory.
The leather bag is a nice add-on but on my site it's already in pieces.
The USB cable could be a bit longer, especially if you own a normal tower pc and you need to connect it to the back usb ports.
Other:
Bottomline:
I would buy this little box again.
