Well made, feels very solid!
RainbowEyes
In order to mount the drive in the case, I had to remove one of the screws on the circuit board and move it out of the way so the power connector would fit.

The fan is very quiet and keeps the drive nice and cool.

The Sabrent EC-UEIS7 is much better than expected... especially, considering some of the reviews here. But if you do a little research, you'll find it does have more positive reviews. So, I took a chance and it paid off. Its utilitarian design suggests a sturdy, solid, well made case. I concur - there is nothing flimsy about this enclosure. It's matte black finish leaves no fingerprints. Dust and other markings are easily removed with a slightly damp cloth. The overall finish is very clean with smooth edges and everything fits together without gaps or warping. The black plastic stand holds the unit securely in an upright position. I leave the drive on for 12 hours, or more, every day, so any enclosure must include a built-in fan for cooling. I've used "fan less" enclosures before and my experience has been that both, the drive and the enclosure's electronics quickly get too hot and begin to fail.

Installation of the hard drive was easy enough even with the poorly translated "users manual" - if you pay attention to the photo's and don't rush. DO NOT REMOVE THE SIDE PLATE COVERING THE FAN. IT'S NOT NECESSARY. The drive slid into place quite easily. Yes, it is a snug fit but it was easy to position. With the two plastic side plates removed, the four supplied screws locked the drive into place. Re-assembly was simple enough and once connected to the computer via the supplied USB cable, Windows 7 immediately recognized the drive and it was up and running.

There are two LED lights on what I call the front end: a flashing red LED at top (12-18-2013 edit: new drives are blue led only) of the unit indicating when the drive is active (it's off when the drive is inactive); and a solid blue light at the bottom indicating the power is on.

Size Name: USB 2.0/eSATA for 3.5" SATA or IDE Hard Drives
Bought two of these to salvage two 500gb IDE drives from a dead pc. Instructions are not very articulate, but drive installation is simple enough to figure out yourself. Very tight fit for 3.5in drives, but don't need to use force to get them inserted. Both powered up and worked as soon as connected through the USB ports.

Good packaging, comes with the screws and a screwdriver for top cover removal and mounting the drive to the side rails. Although not in the description, the package also includes eSata cables and internal connector. Took about a week to get them with free shipping.

One clarification not in the product description: I learned from another site that the eSata connection only works with eSata drives; apparently, you must use the USB connection for IDE drives.

I also bought Sabrent external enclosures for two DVD drives and I'm pleased with both purchases. I'd buy them again.

Size Name: USB 2.0/eSATA for 3.5" SATA or IDE Hard Drives
I purchased this enclosure for use with a Media Center PC. I have run out of USB 2.0 interfaces, and wanted the speeds provided by my computer's eSATA interface. Since it did not ship with an eSATA cable, I set it up using USB. When I subsequently plugged it in to eSATA, the lights on the enclosure went dead, and the PC did not see the drive. When I wrote to Sabrent tech support, I received a most unusual response. They did not suggest any way to make the eSATA interface work. The technician suggested that I use USB rather than eSATA because the enclosure throttles down the eSATA speed to the same rate as USB anyway. Further, he suggested that eSATA was a dying standard - soon to be replaced by USB 3.0. In other words, if I was going to use an obsolete slow interface, it may as well be USB 2.0! I returned the product.

Size Name: USB 2.0/eSATA for 3.5" SATA or IDE Hard Drives Verified Purchase
This drive enclosure is rock solid. The best way I can describe this enclosure is that it looks and feels like an armored tank for your hard drive. In addition to the solid look and feel, I really appreciate the hardwired on/off switch (as opposed to the ubiquitous soft switches) so I know the drive will always default back to "on" even after a power outage. This isn't always the case with those soft switches. I am also very happy that this enclosure is one of the few with an actual fan built-in. I keep my external drive on 24/7, and while the fanless enclosures may work fine in that kind of situation, I guess I'm a little old school about heat management - a spinning fan is required in my book. I have this thing hooked up by eSATA to Windows Server 2008 and it was 100% plug and play as expected. It's been two months going 24/7 and so far no problems to report. Quick pointer: My 3.5" Hitachi hard drive was a tight fit in this enclosure, yours probably will be too. You might think your drive won't fit, but it will. Just take some time to line everything up properly before you try to push the drive into the enclosure. This goes for the interface cables too. Overall, very happy with this enclosure and would recommend for users looking for a reliable and solid enclosure.

I bought this enclosure to recover files from a dead computer. It was a tight squeez, the power plug is a little too big. If the case were 1/16 of an inch longer there would be no problem. I loosened the screws holding the circuit board in place so it would slide forward a little and used a knife blade to shoehorn the drive in place. Took about 20 minutes but IT WORKED!!
You really don't need the instructions and that's good. Whoever wrote them doesn't have command of the English language. I quote: Whopping the product properly. You must click the "safly remove hardware" icon on the right of the taskbar, if u want to stop the product and then there a direction telling that the USB mass storage device can now be safely removed then you can whop the USBcable from the USBport.

Whatever that means...
At any rate it works and other than a tight fit, was easy to set up.
