I recently swapped out two 750 GB Seagate SATA drives from my HP Mediasmart Servers and replaced them with 2 TB WD Green drives (WD20EADS). I wanted to convert those two Seagate drives into external drives for backup purposes using USB drive enclosures. I had bought several enclosures a while ago, so I had to do the research to figure out which were better these days. My criteria were (1) not expensive (drives are so cheap today that an expensive enclosure sort of defeats the purpose of re-using old drives if you want to be cost-effective since you can just buy a new external drive for not much more than the fancier enclosures); (2) easy to assemble without the stress of thinking you are breaking something or somehow degrading the performance of the drive; (3) it just works (the occasionally elusive ease of the "plug and play" ideal). Also, a personal preference, I wanted a physical on/off switch and not a "touch-sensitive" electronic switch (like that found on the Macally G-S350SU Hi-Speed eSata/USB2.0 External Storage Enclosure for 3.5inch SATA HDD) or no switch. Finally, I also wanted good heat dissipation and vibration control.Read more ›

I highly recommend this enclosure!
1) Lack of clear instructions (I thought it was true plug and play such as a flash drive...but I had to use my Maxtor CD to set it up)
2) LED Cable is a small pain the butt. A non-issue once you put it in if you plan to keep one drive in all the time like I do.
3) Screws to assemble the case seem to be self-tapping? This is an issue for some. Just screw it in straight the 1st time and it's a non-issue as well.
Overall: Great design (smaller than some 3.5" enclosures) and performance...especially for the money.
Sorry, I'm not really a techie, so my enthusiasm might be weird. I just hope that anyone who has a similar problem can be saved some money and the stress of what I went through.
