  • Solid Aluminium Plates (oxidation treated surface for improved smoothness & hardness) and Plastic Chasis for vibration reduction (shock protection for the hard drive)
  • Tool-free assembling, easy and fast to install hard drive inside: push the button to open the top lid, slide the hard drive in, close the top lid, and you have a portable hard drive ready to use.

I bought this as my old laptop crashed and needed to get important files back... this did the job perfectly. For £3 you cant get much better. Its easy to use, works well with vista (even if the packing doesn't say so) and also seems to have a pretty good transfer rate (it re-formatted my old 40GB hard disk in about 40 mins). The main drawback is that the screws are a bit on the flimsy side but this does not affect its operation at all.

I spilled tea all over my laptop (which gave up the ghost immediately). After trying to revive it for a couple of weeks, I had to give up and removed the hard drive. Looked all over for some way to cheaply transfer my old files. MAPLIN had expensive and complicated stuff but this little gadget is FANTASTIC. Straight out of the box, just connected it to my HDD, plugged it through the USB cable into my computer, and it worked right away. I have VISTA and it recognised the drive, installed the driver from the CD, and I could transfer the files. I tried it via another computer with XP, and it didn't work because my files seemed locked to a specific owner (a Microsoft thing I suspect). Through VISTA, I was somehow given the option to take ownership of the files. Can thoroughly recommend this little piece of kit (didn't even screw it into the box, just used it loose).

I purchased this enclosure just over two years ago now and wanted to come back and give it a review.

I use the enclosure regularly with a hard drive from a laptop which died on me quite a while ago now and it has always worked perfectly. The build quality is excellent for the price and does 'exactly what it says on the tin'. I would highly recommend this enclosure to anyone.

Simple to assemble / disassemble and ideal for housing the numerous spare 2.5" drives I find I keep acquiring.
The casing & styling are nice and has an activity LED, no external power required other than the USB lead.
Mine was all black construction - unlike the advertised which has silver & black, but that's not an issue - just an observation.

The enclosure works perfect, and it even includes a small screwdriver to open it and a pouch, so you don't need anything else.

The only problems I find is that the glossy metal finish attracts fingerprints like a magnet. Other than that, perfect littler product.
