The enclosure works well. It's large enough to fit the drive in easily, the connections are tight and my computer recognized the drive instantly. It took only 5 minutes to set up. I was able to wipe a couple of old hard drives, reformat them, and now can use them for external storage. One word of caution: If the drive you have is very old (e.g., 1 GB or less), this enclosure won't work. You'll be able to install the drive but it won't be recognized by any computer newer than 10 years old or so. That's just a function of the age of the drive and changes in the hardware, NOT of the enclosure.
The only odd thing was that when you open the enclosure, the side panels slide away. It is a very low-frills, cheap design but does great work as an expander to my cable DVR box.
I purchased this hard drive case so I could recover data from the hard drives, one SATA the other IDE, of two old desk top computers, mission accomplished, now I have a remote SATA backup drive, great stuff, It's exactly what I needed!
I opened the box, inserted my old hard drive, screwed the lid back on and it powered right up. Anyone can take the hard drive out of their old computer and make it useful with this hard drive enclosure. This model does need to be plugged in to an electric outlet, but I can live with that.
This enclosure worked properly with an IDE drive, Have not tried it with SATA but all of the connectors are there to make that type of drive work.
The enclosure is a great heat sink for the drive and the Screw Heads provide good spacing that seems to help the heat disapation .
Works fine, Easy to install HD in and hook up to computer. However, I was unable to make computer boot from the old drive, other than that it works great.
The hard drive enclosure met my expectations. It was easy to connect to the storage device and is working properly with no problems.
Very easy to assemble and works just like an external hard drive.
I am pretty well guaranteed to mess up any installation. However this took me 4 minutes from opening the box to successful installation. There are no instructions included but the connectors supplied can only go to one place. So easy. Works perfectly.
