  • Not cheap...inexpensive!
    Verified Purchase

    As a lone IT technician supporting 50+ users, my time is precious. I needed to replace an internal HD on an early Intel iMac. Replacing that particular HD takes nerves of steel and more than a few minutes. This little gem was the answer. In 2 minutes, the internal replacement HD was converted to an external, slapped a piece of Velcro on the case and the back of the Mac, plugged it in, booted up the Mac, re-installed the OS and I was off and running. I'm ordering a couple more to carry updates on from workstation to workstation.

  • Great product, Great price, fast delivery!
    Verified Purchase

    Needed this item to try to salvage my HD from a damaged laptop. Since it was questionable whether or not the HD would be functional I didn't want to spend too much money on a HD encloser. This item fit the bill! Shipped quicky from California to Virginia. Item worked perfectly, very easy set up, basically plug and play.

  • Black Sata Enclosure
    Verified Purchase

    After figuring out how to open the enclosure, it was easy to mount the drive and when I plugged it into the computer it worked fine. The screw drive was an nice touch. The price was right, I Would recommend to any one that needs one. would have given 5 stars if direction to open would have been better. Could use some better instructions on how to open it.

  • Cheap and flimsy
    Verified Purchase

    It is a cheap case for creating an external storage unit with small hard drives. One has to be careful not to bend it because the aluminum is so thin. I bought it to save a few dollars over a good quality case from a company I have dealt with in the past. The savings was not worth it. I will now buy the good-quality one from someone I trust.. I won't risk putting a good drive in this product.

  • Does the job
    Verified Purchase

    Poor choice of material used for the mounting plate in the middle but still intact enough to hold the drive and shell securely in place. Used to hold the original drive from my PS3 so computers cant really access the drive but it does recognize as a drive that needs to be formatted. So in all it works for what I need it for. Not sure I would trust it for valuable data that was going to be used for more than just on the shelf storage. So I won't be dragging this around town or anything. For what I paid for the product it is what I expected and does the job. Would I buy another one? Yes, if it was for shelf storage. But look elsewhere for something more durable for travel.
