I bought this because my laptop has a short and the motherboard doesn't recognize the cd drive. Set up was easy and my laptop recognized the drive right away. The only cons are that the fan is a bit noisy and the enclosure is completely smooth all around, which allows it to slide all over my desktop (placing it on an old mousepad solved the problem). Other than that, it works very well and I can now play Heroes of Might and Magic V once again.

This is an inexpensive way to use an external IDE device that is still functional. My previous external power supply failed this was an inexpensive way to still use what is otherwise a perfectly operational external devise. It does exactly what I needed. The screws holes on the face plate were weak, stripped them on my first attempt to install my external DVD burner so be careful not to attempt to tighten the crews to tight.

I installed a DVD writer in the Enclosure. I was not sure just how to remove the front panel opening for the DVD drive, and finally cut it out with my Exacto. Put all of the screws in place and checked that the drive would power up. Have not connected it to the computer as yet but I am sure it will work...

This product IS NOT what you may think it is. It will not hold a SATA drive or any 3.5 inch anything! it is a old school floppy disc case! A WASTE of TIME & MONEY because at this day in age they are mostly (5.25 floppy discs are corrupted or) are no longer readable!

A 3.5" bracket adapter was not included with this unit, so it wasn't truly a 3.5"/5.25" enclosure. I had to obtain a 3.5" bracket to mount my 3.5" HDD. Maybe this was a substitute product, because the box didn't have "MicroPac" printed anywhere on it. However the enclosure does look like the picture, and is the same in every other respect.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

When I installed my CDROM drive and turned on the power a capacitor on the circuit board, inside the enclosure exploded. I hope it didn't damage my CDROM drive.
