"Excellent product" 2010-01-21
By Sheila A. Vaughn (South Carolina)
After having to tear apart my laptop due to a problem, we decided to go with the hard drive enclosure and connect the laptop drive to our desktop. Great idea. It works perfectly and we did not lose any data. I highly recommend this product. The seller was very easy to work with and prompt with delivery.

"Very good for the price" 2009-12-23
By Nathan Beauchamp (Oak Park, IL USA)
I bought this to facilitate replacing a hard drive in an older model notebook using Arconis True Image. I didn't need a high quality enclosure, just one that would get the job done while transfer files from my old hard drive to the new one. This enclosure worked perfectly for my purposes and now serves as a back up drive for the computer.


1) Price is right
2) A very nice looking enclosure
3) Good transfer speeds over USB 2.0


1) Not impressive in build quality. The tiny screws used to secure the drive closed are pretty poor.
2) Requires two USB connectors to function properly. If your laptop doesn't have two USB connectors right next to each other, this could prevent you from using the drive at all.


This is a very inexpensive enclosure that is ideal if you plan on giving it light use. If you need a high quality enclosure, you might want to choose a different one.

"Life saver" 2009-10-22
By Bits n Bytes (Atlanta, GA United States)
I have to admit I was a bit skeptical when I bought this device. The reviews were mixed, but because it was only $12.50, I figured what did I have to lose? The background problem...all of a sudden my 7 year old Dell Inspiron 9100 would not boot. So I bought this to try to salvage what was on my hard took me longer to open the package than it did to begin recovering my files! This drive saved me! How many times have you been asked (after your computer crashes) did you backup everything?? I can now say that my computer crashed, and then I backed up everything....thanks to this product.

This isn't a style product. It's not gold plated, it's not air conditioned, no sexy rubber's simply a tool that does as advertised.

I also read other reviews complaining about it not working for hard drives larger than 30GB. Not true for me. My hard drive was 40 GB, and it read and copied my drive with no problems.

"Works as Advertised. A Bit Chintzy" 2009-09-23
By M. Meikle (Richmond, Virginia USA)
I purchased two of these enclosures due to an Alienware laptop that bit the dust. A minor note, don't buy Alienware products they are awful.
The kits are extremely simple to use and worked without issue. Windows Vista picked up the drive as soon as it was plugged in and installed the correct drivers. Amazing I know :)
It is nice that the kit also comes with a dual USB cable to ensure you can power larger hard drives. This came in handy since I had two 100 gig drives that needed more power.
The only quibble I had with the kit was the quality of the fasteners and enclosed screwdriver. Both are very cheap and if you need to apply any sort of force to fasten the faceplate to the shell, you will strip the heads off the screwdriver or screws. So it's a good idea to have your own screwdriver for the assembly.
