cheap enclosure

Pros

very affordable
makes use of old laptop drives
under $10 when on sale
Cons
2.0 USB
does feel a little cheap
Summary
can't beat it for the price, installation can be a pain because the screws are tiny.
I would recommend to anyone looking to make use out of old laptop drives.

Pros

Good bang for the buck when on sale. I needed a cheap hard drive enclosure for my old laptop hard drive after I upgraded it to an SSD. I simply installed the drive and it just works.
Cons
I don't transfer large files frequently so the USB 2.0 speed is not an issue for me. I transferred about 11 gigabytes of files with a sustained speed of 39-40 MB/sec in under 5 minutes. You may want to look at newer (pricier) hard drive enclosures if you need faster speeds. Also as other reviewers have pointed out the hard drive may flop around inside the case as the hard drive is only held in place by the data/power connector. A workaround is to use (just enough) folded cardboard underneath and/or above the hard drive inside the enclosure to keep the drive from flopping around.
Summary
As long as you're aware of the cons mentioned above you should be fine with this enclosure. This is a great hard drive enclosure at a decent price when on sale.

Pros

Plug and Play!
Cons
None
Summary
I had an old 300GB 2.5" HDD laying around and this now makes it useful again. I may even buy another for an older SSD I have. I can't say anything bad about the quality or performance, it has worked flawlessly. I would buy again.

Pros

Cheap, metal case
Cons
Tiny Screws
Summary
Works as advertised but it has really tiny screws holding it together. They don't actually screw the pieces together but wedge into the plastic. It doesn't feel like it will hold strong if I replace the drive a couple times.

Pros

Simple assembly, light in weight, extra screws :), Derpy looking case
Cons
it came with the wrong USB cable...
Summary
Overall good product, however the USB that came with the package was a male-male A type USB...the enclosure requires at least one male USB mini b end. Just another case of quality control; but I'm still satisfied with its capabilities. Open it up when you get it and check that all the contents are there. Guess what you pay for is what you get...
