 Decent, no frills hard drive enclosure.

I recently purchased this hard drive enclosure to house my old 400GB hard drive, as I replaced it with a 1TB drive. I'd been looking for enclosures for a while, and I wasn't too bothered about looks or extra features.

That said, it isn't an ugly case. The black design is simplistic and small, basically the dimensions of the hard drive itself. It has a combined power/processing light, and even an on/off switch (to save power, I assume). The choice of power lead is slightly odd, however all leads are included, so it doesn't make too much difference.

Installation was a dream. It's just a case of plugging in the two wires, then two simple screws to hold it together. After that, it took a few seconds to start spinning and a few seconds to install (it's plug in and play, and I've used it so far on Vista and Windows 7 and had no problems at all) and I was away. I copied the old files off the drive, then formatted it, and now I've got 400 extra gigabytes to play with.

As I haven't had it too long (it was only released on 1st March 2010) I don't know how hard wearing it will be, however I don't intend to throw it around, and it claims to have shock protection.

There are however, a few down sides. It does get rather hot, as it doesn't have a fan, which could be a problem it you intend to use it large amounts. Also, the back of box has a spelling mistake, and some suspect grammar, so I don't know what that says about the attention to detail.

In summary however, this is pretty much the cheapest 3.5" enclosure you'll find, especially with free shipping. Installing a drive could be done by an amateur, making it accessible to anyone with a spare drive lying around. If you can look past the heat (and you should be able to, considering you can find enclosures for twice this price without a fan) and the Engrish on the box, you can't go far wrong with this case.

 Bargain for £10

Bought this to home a 360GB HDD from a borked NAS enclosure. Wasn't expecting much for a tenner but you get a sturdy enclosure, power and USB cables, a stand, mounting screws and a little screwdriver to assemble it with. I echo the advice of other reviewers, don't keep it on 24/7, just turn it on as and when you need it (Not a criticism of this device just good practise for using external hdd's with no fan).

 Perfect for casual users

This is a simple enclosure nothing technologically amazing but it will do what you want it to. Just connect up your hard drive screw in the screws and plug it in. As its lacking a fan and any other form of cooling Be sure to use it when you need it and not for long periods of time. I have never had one of these break on me as I only turn them on when I want to use them and turn it off That is what this is for. Its fantastic product for a good price.

 Brilliant little device

I got one of these for Christmas :) the installation of the hard drives into it was very simple. XP recognised the drive without problems :) the only down side is that you may need a bit of knowledge of how to install a internal hard drive and how to mount one on your computer.

i'd buy another one :)

 what a bargain
