    • A. Its not a hard drive. its a hard drive "En-closer" you have to have a 2.5" HDD to put in it still. so whatever size of 2.5 HDD you get to put in it would be the answer.

    • A. This is not a hard drive actually, but merely an aluminum case to enclose an already removed hard drive, and connections to allow it to connect to another computer via a USB cable. It holds a 2.5" SATA drive, typically found in most laptop computers. Hope that helps!

    No more lost files on a dead computer

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

    I was so upset when my laptop died because I hadn't been backing up my files in over 3 months so I worried everything was lost. I was advised to look for solutions on the internet and I found this product and now have access to all my old files plus extra room on my old hard drive to store more files if I need to. (I can use it as an additional external hard drive) This product works great and is a very simple fix for lost files on a dead computer.

    Cheap SATA enclosure

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

    This is (obviously) a cheap enclosure, and you get what you pay for. There's not much to secure your drive inside the enclosure, just a couple of tiny screws, and they don't fit in the holes very well. The part that connects to your hard drive's SATA connectors bends somewhat easily. This may be due to my hard drive, but I found that the plastic cover meant to protect the hard drive's circuit board would not stay on the hard drive very well. I was hoping to use this to boot linux off a hard drive from an old laptop. And again, this may be due to either my hard drive or my system (or my lack of knowledge), but using this enclosure I could not partition my hard drive from linux using gparted. Now I'm going to try to use it to store backups of my windows machine on my old drive. All in all, this is an inexpensive solution if you just need to grab some files off an old hard drive or temporarily convert an internal drive to an external one for some reason, but I would not use this as a long-term solution.

    Small item for low, low price to get the job done. Item worked as stated, we were able to retrieve files off of a hard drive of a crashed laptop. Would recommend this to anyone needing same done. If your hard drive does turn out to be damaged, then you're not out of alot of money.

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

    If you are looking to use old laptop drives for extra storage or to transfer date this is the enclosure for you. Not very useful as a boot drive for laptops, but with a small amount of fiddling it worked just as well as a 69.99 I bought a few months ago. It even comes with its own screwdriver for tiny screws!

    Nexstar 2.5" SATA to USB HDD Enclosure

    Customer review by LavRal

    This product works very well and is made of an alloy metal that not only protects the hard drive inside, it is very lightweight. It is easy to use and has a pilot light indicator that shows the activity of the hard drive when accessed. I purchased two of them several years ago and they are working like new. They are great to have in your computer repair toolbox for those times when you need to backup or repair an existing hard drive inside a laptop. It also works great for setting up a replacement hard drive, (data transferral), for an existing laptop's OS, (operating system). I would highly recommend this enclosure to all of my IT technical friends.

    I had two severely damaged laptops. I bought this enclosure based on other reviewers reporting how this enclosure had helped them in similar circumstances. Both drives fired right up. (Note: your experience may be different depending on physical damage) I then bought a second enclosure and have two drives for backing up the new computers for a total of $16.00.

    For the price I was expecting something flimsy, but I was shocked by the quality of this case!! Just as good as anything more expensive, the case is metal to help reduce heat from the hard drive...fits 2.5" HDDs just as advertised
