I was surprised to see that the cable is a full USB to full USB, not the mini USB normal for external drives. It works most of the time, but has difficulty connecting some times. I would not want to rely on it for every day use. I used it for getting data off a swapped out drive, and for that it was okay. Spend a bit more and get something better.

I ordered one of these, a lovely blue one (MY-Link 2.5" USB2.0 IDE External Hard Drive Case Enclosure (Blue)).
It has worked well from first use. No problem there at all.

It comes with a Y USB cable with one leg being 6 inches long than the other, 14 inches. It also comes without any instructions. I assumed that the Y cable was provided so that one could provide signal and power and the other was there for additional power from a second USB socketif required. It seems to work properly with either connector alone. And why two different lengths?

My problem (the flaw) is that the electronics and disk are held in the case by two very tiny screws that screw through holes in the metal case and into holes in the plastic surround on the electronics. The first time that I screwed the thing together the plastic on one side broke around the screw hole. Now it is held in by one screw only.

This retaining method is not very suitable if you are going to be changing the disk several times. Something more robust would be better.

First let me say that delivery on this product was amazing. From ordering until having it in my hands was about 36hrs, very impressed. So a big well-done to E W Link Co. Ltd who supplied this.

The hard drive enclosure is relatively robust considering how cheap it is, particularly once the drive is in place. Be careful when connecting the drive itself to the pins. I had no problems but I can see if you are not focussed you could accidently attempt to connect your 2.5" drive upside down, which could damage the delicate pins before you realise what you have done.

Transfer rates are excellent. I copied a 200mb file (moving it from my newly installed hard drive to my existing main computer's desktop) in about 10 seconds.

Still trying to figure out why this unit needs a Y USB lead. I tried transferring files with and without the second USB plug and it worked in both configurations!

A useful inclusion is the soft carry case, with no cooling ports in the enclosure itself it looks like you can keep the drive inside the case whilst working, which I think could help those of us that are concerned with scratching our main computer(s). I say this because of course metal on metal is not a good combination and with the supplied USB lead being relatively short, I have a tendency to balance the hard drive on my laptop while working with it on my lap.

Overall a superb product and one of the best value items I have bought from Amazon. Does exactly what it says on the tin. Oh, and it worked out of the box with Vista as well!

This indeed must be one of the cheapest and best buys I have made on amazon. I received this item today.
For £5.99 including delivery, you are getting much more than you paid for. Not only does it come with the nice, cool, black aluminium Magnesium alloy casing, but also with a leather casing, usb cables, screws (And screwdriver) and driver CD.

The product works perfectly. I have tried it on a USB2 and USB1.1 connection and works like a charm. However, I have tried it on a USB2 cardbus but unfortuanetly it did not work on that. I do not know the reason why, because the ports are working perfectly. And as stated earlier, the USB 1.1 ports on this same laptop, the harddrive works perfectly.

I actually have two problems, albeit small, with the product. One is the USB cable. The USB cables it comes with is a 3 of the same USB connection. Basically one USB connection is connected to the caddy, and the other two into your laptop/computer. This means it takes up 2 USB ports. This may not be that much of a problem for some, I mean these days computers come with several USB ports. However, the problem is in the replacement of the USB cable in the event of loss or failure. Are "3-way USB" connection much easier to come by than say a mini-USB to USB?? And do people have them lying around in the case you forgot yours?

The second problem is the lack of manuals. The product doesn't come with any manuals at all. However, it is not rocket science in putting the stuff together, however, finding your way thru the driver CD certainly is for newbies. The driver CD at first look, is full of folders with names/numbers that make no sense (most likely of model numbers). You would need to explore each folder if you need something your looking for.

Well this little box does what it is supposed to do, though what it says on the box is a bit out of date! Yes it does work with Vista even though it only mentions OS' up to XP. It comes with screws, screwdriver, and soft case for transport. However, I would reccommend that you have a sturdier pozi screwdriver to hand if you want to avoid damage. I use it for creating backups of laptop drives on my main PC, so I can't vouch for its long term integrity and performance.
