I bought this enclosure as it looked quite sleek and stylish for such a low price. Everything in the box is of a decent quality, but there are a few things that made installing the drive alot more hassle than was needed. The red SATA cable inside the enclosure that connects to the hard drive was about 3 inches long, which means it had to be bent and squashes down in order to make the drive fit. Also, I had to swap the end plates around as they seemed to in the wrong position, no biggie, but again could have saved me alot time had they been positioned correctly. I'm very pleased with this enclosure now that I have it set up, and for the price, recommended!

I had a 3.5 inch 750 GB SATA hard drive and needed a cover. This enclosure was extremely easy to set up - the box came with all required cables and power cord - it even included a screw driver!

Plug and play on my XP PC with no problems at all.

Well worth the money - I will be buying a couple more.

I needed a new enclosure for my External 500 Gig Hard Drive as my old one had died on me unexpectedly. When I saw this one on Amazon I was concerned as it was very cheap but took a chance. I have to say though that it is brilliant. It was a good price and it arrived within a week of ordering.
If I have any critisium it is that the on/off power button and the drive indicator light are at the same end as the cables so for ease of access to these two I have to have the leads trailling across the desk. This is the same for most external drives though.
Other than that I am very pleased with my purchase and am happy to recommend it to anyone who is looking for an enclosure.

This enclosure gives the impression of not being made to suit the reasonable price. It has a quality feel and is quite sturdy.
The included screwdriver is a good touch, I wouldn't like to use it for anything else but it serves it's purpose.
The HDD is easy to fit, the slide off top cover of the enclosure makes for much better access. The "ribbon" data cable is possibly a bit too long and not very flexible. In my case it needed bending into a permanent tight "s" to enable the end cover to be secured.
The stand is also useful for vertical positioning enabling a smaller footprint.
So, yes, a recommended product.

We bought this to house our external hardrive. It arrived in good condition and looks very small and sleek. The stand is a great addition as it will slot on a shelf or next to the computer using minimal space. The instructions were short and not very detailed, we used the pictures for guidence and it was simple once we got the idea, the hardest part was getting the end piece back on as it is a snug fit with the hardrive and the wires connecting it. With a bit of brute strength though we got everything screwed in place and now it has done its job perfectly.

There's no problem when you use the included power supply with this hard disk enclosure, but please be aware that the plug which feeds power into the back of the enclosure is not wired up the same way as it was for some of the earlier Sumvision enclosures for PATA hard disks. If you already own one of these older enclosures, be sure not to mix up its power supply brick with the one from this SATA enclosure or else you might blow up your hard disk.

This SATA enclosure is a very neatly designed unit. However, when I investigated the internals I discovered that the rear panel power switch only disconnects the 5V power rail. The 12V rail remains on all the time. That's a bit cheap - who knows how the hard disk is going to react? I think I will leave the switch on all the time and turn the unit off at the mains power socket instead.

The bridge chip is JMicron JM20329 (which claims to be Advanced Format aware).

Connection of hard drive was very easy but putting the enclosure back together is a problem as only 3 of the 4 screws line up correctly on the end panel and thus one of the holes had to be elongated to enable the fourth screw to be used, The power cable connection has very small pins which I think if your not careful when inserting it into the enclosure you could bend them.However with these negatives aside I think it is reasonable value for money and it does what it claims to do .

I was looking forward to getting this enclosure as I backed up my files onto a harddrive so I could replace the one in my imac as it stoped working.
When I received this enclosure, I put the harddrive in, pluged everything in, and the power cable didnt work. there was no l.e.d light to show there was power and the hardrive didnt show up on the computer.. Not happy at all about this!!
