Pictures make it look cheaper than in is in person.
The aluminum is much more substantial than I expected for the price.
Also an added bonus is it worked with my 3TB drive even though the box states 1.5TB max.
USB 3.0 speeds are great, no difference between internal or external when used with a USB 3.0 plug.
If you have a drive collecting dust or need to convert one to external this enclosure is a very good option.

I had the enclosure for 3 and a half months and the controller board failed. It appears others find this to be the case as well. not sure if it is cheap components but would love to return it but too late. hope this is helpful to anyone considering buying. I really read these comments before buying and so taking the time to post this in case others can benefit. Either way, it is what happened in my case. Drive works fine in the computer or outside the case.

The AC plug, USB plug and switch are all on one side of the enclosure while the operating light is on the opposite side. I'm not sure whether this is good or bad but it might be significant for some people. It is large but then so are the 3.5" drives so I don't see what can be done about that. It doesn't insulate the noise so if you have a noisy hard drive then it will probably be noisy in the enclosure as well. I was able to install my 350Gb SATA drive in without any problems using the provided screws. I partitioned the drive and I am now also using it successfully as a backup device for my NAS.

The enclosure comes with a back plane with a small circuit board attached, 2 screws, a screw driver, 2 plastic guides, and a USB 3.0 cable. When I opened my box, the circuit board was attached to the back plane but askew. It's easy to remove the circuit board and re-seat it, so I did, gently. The board clicks into place in 2 out of 3 places, but the middle snap can never be made secure; not without a Dremel tool. The result is that the power and USB ports are not flush with the back plane. Further, for the drive to slide into the enclosure properly, you have to push the 2 guides into the the 2 screw holes on each side of the drive. But the small plastic posts on the guides are too big for those holes. They'll go in but not nearly far enough, resulting in a drive/guide combo that will never fit inside the enclosure. You could drop the drive in without the guides, but then it rattles around touching the walls. I have no idea how the product got past inspectors but I find it hard to believe that I got the rare bad one. These are manufacturing issues. At any rate, I returned it. Thank you, Amazon!

This is an excellent product. Works great with a SATA drive. I use this for a 2TB Seagate drive and I have zero issues since I purchased several months back. Definitely recommend it. I gave 4 stars because there is no sleep mode for it and it continuously runs. But has a switch if you like to physically switch it off. My PC is Windows 8 and has capability to put external devices to sleep mode when windows goes into sleep mode. Unfortunately this drive does not support that. Otherwise, works great.

Shipment was very quick, had my two enclosures withing a couple days, even though I chose the 'free shipping' offer (I bought two, so it was over $25). Enclosures work like a charm - I was able to move my drives over in under 5 minutes each, and I'm now able to use them with the USB 3.0 ports on my laptop. And its 10x faster now when I do an external backup! Very happy overall, will probably order a third one soon.

Color: Black Aluminum Verified Purchase
I bought this enclosure in combination with a WD Blue 1 TB Desktop Hard Drive: 3.5 Inch, 7200 RPM, SATA 6 Gb/s, 64 MB Cache - WD10EZEX, so I could use it with the Dish-TV VIP211K satellite receiver in my motorhome. The combination of those two items from Amazon ($87.18) cost between $10 and $50 less than similar offerings on Dish-TV's Website. According to Dish-TV, a 1TB hard drive will record 120 hours of video, but they don't say if it'll record that many hours in HD.

Installing the hard drive was simple enough. The hard drive plugs into the enclosure's end-cap and two small screws secure the end cap to the enclosure. A tiny Philips screwdriver is even provided in the package. Total installation time took me no more than three minutes. I bought this particular enclosure because it supports USB 3.0, is backward compatible to earlier USB protocols and includes the USB cable. It has its own power supply and a convenient button-operated power switch. Even when the hard drive is working hard the enclosure gets only moderately warm.

After I plugged this hard drive into the satellite receiver's USB port and turned it on, then had Dish-TV activate the hard drive which costs $40, it took about five minutes to format this hard drive. Completing this installation, I've been able to automatically record movies from my satellite receiver and then play them back at a time when it is convenient for me to watch.

In this DVR application, I could not ask for better performance. The recordings are as clear and sharp as the original programming and play without pauses, stuttering or glitches. Compared with buying a hard drive that is already in a housing with a power supply, this combination costs less, added little to my installation time, provides flawless performance and doesn't waste space.
