The case is well designed and made. The outer material feels durable, the inner shell soft and well padded. The overall case is well formed and seams look carefully done.

I bought this to be used with the Western Digital Passport II (black) WDXMSxxxx drives (5.1"x3.1"x0.6") and the case is a tad too big for it. The drive has a little too much wiggle room despite the elastic strap inside. I imagine the case will be better fitted for slightly bigger drives, e.g. Seagate's ST9xxxxx1U2-RK.

I purchased this case for my Lacie Rugged Hard Drive LaCie 500 GB 7200 rpm Rugged All-Terrain FireWire 800/ FireWire 400/USB 2.0 Portable Hard Drive 301900 and it's great! It fits the drive perfectly and protects it well. I shoot video and often edit on location, so I end up dragging my drive through the worst of conditions, but it's survived like a champ and this case has definitely helped.

PS - It always makes my day to know that people find these reviews helpful. If you'd also like to ask a question or leave a comment I usually respond the same day, so if you have a question or comment (even if it's just to say, Hi!") feel free to post it below.

Thanks,
Claire

Small External HD Case Black I bought this case to protect my Western Digital 250 GB portable USB hard drive, as I move the drive around a lot between home and work. I'm using the hard drive to back up my iTunes music collection, so I want to take care of it, hence I purchased this Case Logic case. The case is easy to use. When you open it up, you'll find two compartments (one on each side). One has an elastic strap that snuggly holds your hard drive in position. The other compartment has a mesh flap which acts like a pocket, so you can have a space to put a USB cable and maybe a flash drive or two in a pinch. As the case is small, it isn't really designed such that you can leave the hard drive in the case during operation. There isn't enough room for the connector to fit when it is placed in the drive, without the cable putting undue stress on the connector (not a good idea - duh!). In any event, the hard drive produces some heat during operation, so you probably wouldn't want to leave it in the case anyway. My only two complaints or observations are that a real hand strap could have been provided instead of the rubber thingy for carrying the drive more safely to and from a car, and that there isn't really a lot of padding in the sides of the case. I still wouldn't want to drop the hard drive while in the case onto concrete. Maybe from 3 feet onto carpet would be survivable. I guess I expected it to be lined with some styrofoam (I won't tell Al Gore) to provide more protection. Still, it does provide a nice place to keep your hard drive and cable together, without them getting all scratched up.

I have always liked Case Logic. They make quality, well designed cases. This case is no exception.

After reading through the reviews, it was hard to find one that confirmed whether the new GoFlex drives fit inside the case. I found two reviews after digging. One stated it was too small, the other stated it was fine. I decided to order two (recently ordered two GoFlex drives) and try them out for myself.

They arrived today. Here is what I can tell you.. The drives, out of the box fit snugly in the case. You do not need to remove the connector on the drive either. This applies to putting the drive DIRECTLY ON TOP of the elastic band that is inside the case. Now, if you use the elastic band and put the drive under it, it fits snugly as well. It's not complicated to insert it, just a little different than not using the elastic band. So, with or without the band - the drive fits snugly with the connector attached. I will not use the band because the drive fits perfectly and there is no where for it to bounce around or anything like that.

Now, if you remove the connector on the drive, you will have more room and the drive is not as snug. Using the elastic band is also much easier to use. You have more room to insert the drive and remove it. Use of the band without the connector on the drive again, is subjective. It's up to the purchaser. The drive is secure either way.

On the opposite side of the case is space for storing a cable/connector set. There is plenty of room for both without squishing the case to zip it up. It closes easily and zips up smoothly.

The case is simple, effective and seems very durable. It's a hard case, with a soft interior to prevent scratching the plastic finish of the drives made today and has a soft nylon exterior. This thing is perfect for protecting your portable hard drive while it's in your backpack, messenger bag, briefcase, purse or any other bag. I am very happy with my purchase and highly recommend this case!

***PLEASE NOTE*** - The Seagate GoFlex drive would be the absolute LARGEST drive that can fit in this case. Anything bigger than that, will not fit.

I hope this review helps. :)

This is my second Case-Logic case for a portable hard drive, (original case is 1-1/2 years old and shows no wear). This PHDC-1 case fits the Seagate 1TB Go Portable drive like a glove. The sizes are misleading on the various sites. The PHDC-1 inside dims are: 3.5 wide X 5.25 long X 1.5 thick. Like another reviewed stated, it's a bit snug on the width, but no worries.

The case is made of a soft, yet rigid, material which fits the Seagate ST9160821U2-RK External 160GB Hard Drive like a glove. The elastic band helps hold the drive in place while the case is being opened and closed. There is a net inside for holding the USB cable as well. The zipper opens and closes nicely allowing the entire case to open and lie flat. So far, I've purchased three drives and cases for storing digital photographs and have been pleased with both products.

I got this for the Seagate 500 GB USB 2.0 Portable External Hard Drive ST905004EXA101-RK (Black). It fits snugly and has enough room for the USB cable & probably couple of more cables/accessories. This is a great product not only for someone who is looking to carry the portable HDD but also to keep it in a protective place at home and don't have to fear about the HDD collecting dust or any other accidental breakage. I highly recommend this product !

I bought one of these for my Garmin Nuvi 750 ... works PERFECT! Keeps the Nuvi protected (screen facing out, away from the accessories) and holds the car charger cable and the Nuvi cradle in the other half of the case. (You do need to sort of position the Nuvi toward the top or bottom and then the charger and the "lip" of the cradle to the opposite side to "nest" it all, but it works fine.) All you need is to bring whichever mount you use (I travel with the "beanbag" dash mount). Packs easily in a briefcase or suitcase. A friend of mine has the 650, and although it and its components are bulkier than the 750, it still works (just not as "perfect" as the 750).

Amazon pairs this with the LaCie Rugged as a "frequently bought together" deal, but the case is too small. While you can force the zipper to enclose around it, it does not sit completely inside the inner shell -- part of the unit hangs over the lip. And because of the LaCie's thickness, there is not enough room to store the cables inside the case. I wish I had known this before purchasing.

I have two Toshiba Portable USB 2.0 2.5" hard drives (measurements provided below), and was looking for something to keep them free from dust and protect them from damage. This particular case serves exactly that purpose. The drive is held in place by a small elastic band that goes across the center of the one side of the case, and the other side has a mesh/elastic combination pocket that is sufficient for holding flash drives or additional cables. It is durable enough to withstand normal usage, but if you are planning on carrying your hard drive in your luggage or somewhere that it is likely to take more of a beating or have heavy items sit on top of it, this case may not be what you are looking for. The only reason I even mention this in my review is that some of the other reviewers are obviously looking for a product to do something that this product was clearly not manufactured or intended to do. This is NOT a hard shell plastic case, nor does it contain hard plastic inside the fabric. It is however hard ENOUGH to protect the drive from the elements and occasional small drops or bumps. I have used these cases for 6 months, and have not had a single problem with either of them.

Total measured internal useable dimensions of case for drive storage = 5-15/16" Length X 3-5/8" Width X 7/8" or 1" thick.

Just to give an example, my Toshiba drives measure 4-15/16" L X 3-1/8" W X 5/8" thick and sitting in the case, it still allows an additional 1" lengthwise and 1/2" width and approximately 1/4" more for thickness for a larger drive. Hope this helps those of you with a drive and a tape measure wondering if this will work for you. Happy shopping!
