  Good quality at a good price

| | See all KyleAR's reviews (3)

I ordered this to make use of an old spare 3.5" SATA drive as an external back-up drive. The enclosure is of decent quality, straightforward to assemble once you've inserted your drive. The only slight issue I had was that I had to temporarily disconnect one of the disk controller cables, probably the LED line, in order to insert my disk into the enclosure. It's not difficult to do and it didn't cause any problems - I simply reconnected once the drive was installed and the retaining screws in place.

I've used a number of external drive chassis with mixed experiences - this unit is a good balance between quality and affordability. It's a good way to make use of a spare drive.

  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).

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.

This is a good quality drive, it looks nice and feels nice.

The only reason i gave it 4 star is because it does not look like the one in the picture (false info), infact it looks more a like to the Cit 2.5 inch
The only difference being that it is bigger.

Overall good buy

  Poor build quality

Working with computer components for 20 years now and have found this item to work yes but of VERY poor build quality. The connections are very sloppy and dont fit 100%. Suppose for 10 quid its not bad but I dont expect this to last more than a month tops.

For 9-99 pounds and free P&P and USB 2.0 you cannot grumble about this case, the power supply and USB lead could have been a wee bit longer but are adequate. I used mine for a PVR (Video Recorder) on my Technisat HDFS Freesat HD Box it was so simple to install. I formatted a 500Gb SATA 2 HDD in FAT32 and was up and running in 15 minutes, I have a spare 250Gb SATA 2 HDD so I have ordered another one as a spare backup, as I said great value for 9-99 pounds.

This case is not USB 2.0. Well at least the one that I received was not. It says on the packaging and the actual case that it is, I installed it correctly and made sure that my USB porst on my computer were working correctly and it still only ran at USB 1 speeds which are SLOW BEYOND BELIEF. Take my advice and go for a slightly more expensive model if you don't want to play USB speed roulette with play.com.

  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
