Great way to use an old laptop hard drive as an external one too.
Sean K.
On the other side, though, I had to remove several screws from the hard drive itself just to get it to fit inside of the case.
Brian
That said, it was easy to install, and came with everything (cable, screwdriver, screws and even a carrying case).

Size Name: 2.5 inch HDD SATA SILVER Verified Purchase
I bought this enclosure to recover data from a laptop. Installation is easy. The interface adapter from the old laptop hard drive has to be removed before connecting to the circuit board. I was able to copy the data from the hard drive once the enclosure was plugged in. There was no attempt to mount the hard drive on the enclosure with the two small screws. Will this enclosure last? I have no idea and it doesn't matter. All I know is that I paid $7.80 for this enclosure and it worked well enough to recover data from a dead laptop. The product gets a five star rating for a data recovery job accomplished.

Size Name: 2.5 inch HDD SATA SILVER Verified Purchase
Bought this enclosure to use an 80GB Sata HDD that I replaced. The port works fine, and as far as I can tell, temperature is not terrible. The product did not include, however, the small screws that are supposed to go into the top of the mount. Without these, the HDD can just slide out of the aluminum casing. It is not a show stopper, since a piece of electrical tape works just fine, it is just that the product should come with everything needed to use it properly. You get what you pay for...

Size Name: 2.5 inch HDD SATA SILVER Verified Purchase
...but that is about it. You are getting a lot of bang for your buck with this enclosure, small screwdriver, pleather slip case, USB cable with an extra USB connector to provide additional power to your drive. Quite simply, this enclosure works, but please be forewarned that you are getting what you pay for. The drive does slightly rattle inside the case, and the provided screwdriver is insufficient at getting the tiny screws into the unit, and the lettering painted to the outside of the case is tacky to the touch and has already slightly smeared. I have no regrets; I wanted an enclosure and didn't want to pay a lot of money for it, and I got exactly what I needed.

Size Name: 2.5 inch HDD SATA SILVER Verified Purchase
I bought two of these to upgrade two different laptops to SSD and use their original drive as an external.
Both Enclosures failed miserably. I tried the onboard usb 2.0 ports on 6 different laptops and 2 different (core 2 and core i5) desktops and although it recognizes the drive you can't format or use the drive in the enclosure. Even a quick format fails. This is on 3 different 2.5" drives tested. Also tried using a Vantec USB 3.0 Powered Hub and Asus NEC USB 3.0 card, didn't make any difference.

Looking at the cable system I decided to flip the usb cable around, using the 2 sided end on the drive, and it works! Drive is recognized, formats, and can write to the drive. So if you are having troubles, connect the end with the two cables to the drive, then connect the short cable to a usb port and reach the long cable length around back to another usb port.

The device continuously removes itself from its connection with the computer. It seems like it doesnt generate enough power via its usb connections. Every task involving opening/ editing the contents of a folder results the same way. PFFFFFFFFFFghhhhhh.

I bought 5 of these and everyone of them was missing the circuit board that connects the drive. Very strange......

Size Name: 2.5 inch HDD SATA SILVER Verified Purchase
I recently upgraded my laptop from an 80gig to a 250gig drive. This gave me a perfectly good 80gig drive with nothing to do so I thought it would be neat to by a case for it. Within a few minutes of getting the case I had it assembled and my Vista saw it with no problem. I started to delete the files I no longer wanted when everything just froze up on me. The drive is now toast and I don't know if it was just a coincidence or a bad enclosure. The one thing I do know is that the drive worked fine in my laptop or desk top but it now locks up both during the drive detection portion of the boot process. At least the enclosure was low cost and I'm not going to go through the bother of returning it but I don't trust it and will chuck it along with my now bad drive. Was it a bad drive or did the enclosure ruin the drive? Who really knows but I'm not about to plug another drive into it to find out for certain. Because I don't know if it was the enclosure I have to rate it as one star and tell my tale so that at least others can decide if they want to get one or not.

Size Name: 2.5 inch HDD SATA SILVER Verified Purchase
In short, I bought this to recover files from a hard drive in a dead laptop. It worked exactly as I hoped it would. Can't beat that for just over five dollars.

Several years ago I ordered pretty much this exact same item (except it was IDE for an older laptop drive instead of SATA) and it took three weeks to come from China. This time it was an item fulfilled by Amazon, so it got here in three days. This thing came with more than enough parts (contrary to the current most popular review) and does exactly what it says on the tin. Both drives are 5400 RPM laptop drives and this is USB 2.0 so it's not the fastest transfer in the world (20 MB/s if I'm lucky), but it works well enough for me. My IDE version could get pretty hot with extended use, but I haven't noticed much of a heat problem with this item. However I haven't used this too extensively yet.
