Just what I needed. for my old XP machine. It arrived on time. Fairly easy to to connect. Just a word of advice, Do not change hard drive for another drive once you have it setup, (at least not an XP machine), it won't recognize a different drive. After initial setup, (don't power up the dive util the computer finishes booting). After that, you can power up the external drive at the same time as computer. Been working great once I noticed the quirks.
