Rated 5 out of 5★ by Micronaut Better than expected I have to say I was a little bit worried since this product had no reviews yet, and many similar products in this price range have received many bad reviews. But I like the look of it, its specs met my needs, and the price was very right. With Wal*Mart's easy return policy, I decided to give it a try, and boy am I glad I did!Let me tell you, I have owned something like 12 enclosure of varying types prior to this one, and this is the absolute easiest to use of them all. There are no tools required. There's just a slide tab that either opens or locks the lid in place. Once the cover is removed, the drive just slides in or out. It fits very securely, yet is remarkably easy to install or remove if you want to swap in a different drive. The case is also very compact. The whole thing is about the size of a typical smart phone, albeit a little thicker.Note: There is no real cushioning or shock absorption built into this device, so if you're planing to be rough on the drive, you may want to look for a more rugged enclosure. But I don't recommend being rough on your drives even if you have the most rugged of enclosures. And as a general purpose enclosure, it's hard to beat this one.I was surprised to find that the built in USB cable is VERY short (Like 2"!). Initially I didn't like this. But to be honest, this is perfectly fine if you're just going to use the drive next to your laptop, and it cuts down on clutter. The cord hides completely in the side of the enclosure, so it's ideal for traveling. If you really want a longer cord, a simple 3 or 6 foot extension is cheap, and will take up as much room as if this enclosure had included a longer cord. So in the long run, I like it this way. My only concern is that, since the cord is built in, if it breaks, it will be harder to replace.Incidentally, the blue LED brightness is "just right"; not too bright, but definitely bright enough. The enclosure uses only one USB port for both power and connectivity, and so far it's worked reliably. I am so pleased with this unit, I am planing to buy two or three more just like it. 04/20/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by OptimusPrime007 You will not be disappointed!!! I never write reviews, however after receiving this item I was compelled to do so. As advertised does not require any tools to open and secure the hard drive. I had a couple of hard drives from an old laptop I wanted to use as external drives. Literally withing 1 min. I installed the hard drive and was using it. The only negative I have on this product is the short USB cord. However if it was longer it would not secure to the case which is a plus. It does not look or feel cheap as you would expect from cases of similiar cost. 05/11/2013
Rated 4 out of 5★ by RBoz Very useful I needed a case for my extra hard drive and tried something from the internet. The unit the I first bought worked for a little while but there was problem with the USB connecting, it would disconnect constantly. I purchased this from Walmart and for the past week it seems to be in perfect working order.I would recommend this unit for use as an external hard drive case. The only thing that would make it a better unit is if it had a longer cord. But for now, I will use an extension. 03/03/2014

Rated 4 out of 5★ by ewinder Great for recycling updated drives. This enclosure is perfect for what I needed it for. I had several 60 to 120 gb SATA drives from recent laptop upgrades and was able to use them as outboard storage with this enclosure. I really like the quick opening cover which makes changing the hard drive real easy. My only gripe about this drive is the (very) short USB dongle attached to it. Seriously, it is only 2 1/2 inches long which makes it a nuisance when used with a desktop or tower computer as is is hanging from the USB jack and could damage the USB jack internally. I replaced it with the cord from a defective USB mouse which I cut to 24 inches which is much better! Hint to manufacturers! 02/17/2013
Rated 4 out of 5★ by hsar30 Does what it says. Very simple to put together. Had a spare, used 60GB 2.5" SATA internal drive and used this to convert it to external storage. very straightforward product, which I was able to put together within a minute without reading any instructions. Only con is that the integrated USB cable when open seems to stick out and i get worried i'll break it with extended use. Good value for the price. 02/07/2013
