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.

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...

...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: 2.5 inch HDD SATA SILVER Verified Purchase
I will start with the old cliche "You get what you pay for". Ok first of all I wasn't shopping for a case at all but for a flash drive when I came across this case.Since I had a 60gb PS3 hard drive laying around accumulating dust I decided to go ahead a buy it for less than $6 including shipping it was worth the risk.The case is shiny aluminum the end caps are plastic it comes with a Y usb cable with A connectors on all three ends,a small screw driver,a carrying bag(looks like leather but who cares) and 4 screws.Both ends come apart once you connect the hard drive you slide it into the case and secure that end with the tiny and I mean tiny screws.However the other end its hold by some tabs that snap inside sides of the case and are a bit to thick preventing the hard drive to slide completely.

After maneuvering the hard drive into the case for almost 10 minutes I broke one of the tabs and now the hard drive fit but since it only snaps on one side only it comes loose.What I did is I cut a half inch strip of black duct tape and fix it.Does it looks good? No but it match my laptop. Does it work? Yes. Was worth the money? To me it was. I carry my Mad Max laptop(yes it has duck tape as well) everywhere since I'm the Computer/WiFi/HiFi/Satellite/Cable/Blender/Hair dryer/Clogged toilet fixer guy.

Conclusion there are better cases if you want a nice looking case and have a few more bucks shop around and you will find a better option.If you don't mind a strip of duct tape across the case(actually it looks like it came with it) if the the tab breaks but being able to put an old hard drive to use for the price of a MCD combo go ahead and get this case.

Remember the connectors on all sides are USB A Connectors this can be an issue for some people having to carry an extra cable around

I hope you can excuse me since English is not my primary language thank God for check spell option.

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.

All I bought this for was to make a transition from a non-working laptop to a working one. I had about 200 GBs of data in my old laptop and wanted every bit of it to be in the new one.
All I had to do was unscrew the old laptop and take out the hard-drive, plug one of the USB cords into that hard drive and the other one into my new laptop. It got recognized immediately by the new computer and made the transition an easy one-step process for me.
It's not the most durable thing; the solder joints are very easily susceptible breakage from wear and tear. But that wasn't a problem for me as I was gonna use it just once. I've used it a couple of times after that but don't expect it to last forever.
