I had two spare 2.5 laptop drives that I thought i would re-utilise. They had both spent the last three years inside a USB 2 enclosure by the same manufacturer and had never let me down.

Undo a couple of screws, open the box, place the drive into the box and plug it into the circuit board, close the cover, replace the screws and you are ready to go.

There is also a rubber outer case to pull over the enclosure which will help protect it.
I think it is robust enough to stand the test of time though I did notice the USB 3 cable that comes with the enclosure is a lot thicker than a usual USB 2 cable and is less flexible.

That aside I had no problem with installation, it works fine and for the price, inexpensive.
I have been able to reuse a 750GB hard drive for the princely sum of £10 and enjoy a file transfer speed 10x faster than the old enclosure.

Remember, this is backwards compatible with USB 2 but to get the faster transfer speed you will need to have USB 3 sockets on your computer.

I bought this because my laptop's internal hard drive was broken, along with the screws that attach the hard drive to the laptop, so I could insert a new HDD into this and boot off this thing and use it as my main hard drive.

I bought this a few months ago and it still works flawlessly, it's even faster than my internal hard drive at times!

I love it, I highly recommend you buying this if you're looking for a 2.5 inch HDD enclosure, this is what you need.

Unlike a few other reviewers I have no problems with the USB coming loose, although I have to say I reckon this is because you need to be a little careful when you plug it in - the silicone sleeve comes too close to the port and you need too pull it away a little to make a firm connection.

The enclosure is very nicely and thoughtfully made - the drive fits perfectly and the little blue LED looks great. I fitted the drive and 'made' my new portable harddrive in under 2 minutes - couldn't be happier with it!

Edit: OK, I've now had the drive for a few weeks and I'm getting the constant disconnection, so I've removed the silicone outer thingy, and this seems to have fixed the issue. I now understand the other rants! However this is still a secondary drive for me, and really just a convenience item since I swapped out my laptop's HDD for an SSD... so I'm still happy!

This is exactly what I need to put my spare Maxtor 750GB SSHD to use.

It took three minutes to put together and whilst the components are plastic once the caddy the rubber casing it has a solid feel.
The USB cable is definitely heavy duty and fits snugly.

On tests with Black Magic Design Disk Speed Test I got write speeds of 103MB/s and read speeds of 108MB/s which whilst not blisteringly fast, is faster than the disc was when it was in my Macbook and perfect for backup / storage etc.

All in all I would recommend this product and will probably get myself another to replace the USB2 caddy I have.

I cannot believe how fast this unit is.
I put a 500G hard drive in so that I could run backups and save photo's and it does this with great ease.
Would recommend this ti anyone, many thanks.

Nicely finished product, it was easy to assemble and proved to be very practical way to package a drive to use for back-up etc.

Very well constructed, with good protection for the HDD. Well worth the price as it is a USB 3 enclosure.
