This HD enclosure is a great tool, especially if you need to extend your HD with USB. However, it is made from a metal frame that screws together and the metal is not cut correctly so some of the side panels will fall out.

It definitely does work, i'll give it that. I have a 3.5inch 500GB or so PATA HD in the thing, plug it into my laptop via USB. No errors or anything after weeks of heavy use.

The fan seems like it rubs a little. When you first turn it on, the fan spins noisily, and there is a little banging sound as the blades seem to rub on something. I have had this happen to other cooling fans, and they don't last long when they are rubbing, so I'm not very confident this one will last. It sounds sick, sick as in not healthy. Within a minute or two of powerup, the fan slows down and is less noisy and irritating and sick-sounding. And the hard disk does work.

The case has held together, but you can push the sides and it kinda flexes in, which doesn't inspire confidence but is probably structurally ok.

When I have moved the case/hard disk while powered on, it has "crashed" if I tap it the wrong way, causing me to have to turn the enclosure off and on to get it working again. I don't mean a hard tap -- I mean moving it setting it down onto a cushion (following me and my laptop) but without being very very careful to slowly position it onto the surface where it will lay. A little extra shock absorbtion in the case would help this I bet. I have a regular 3.5" HD in the thing and I know they don't like to be moved, and if you just want to plug this in to a stationary computer and leave it forever, you should be ok.
