5.0 out of 5 stars Does exactly what it says, 2 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted to go all digital for my new Xbox One, I need to avoid drowning in DVDs and Bluray discs. The easiest way of doing this is to load my Microsoft account up with credit and purchase the games directly from the console itself. The card arrived in good time and I was eager to transfer the funds into my account, however I opened the tear off panel on the back of the card and saw that there was just a 25 digit code hidden under a silver scratch off strip. No fancy 2D QR code that you can command your Xbox One to scan in with the Kinect camera. Other than being forced to use my fleshy appendages to manually enter the code this is one of the best ways to collect funds for game and DLC purchases, the perfect gift for the man or woman who appears to have it all.

3.0 out of 5 stars Basic but watch that USB port, 15 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The first thing that struck me about this caddy was how light it is, even in its box. That's mainly because there's not a lot too it, there's no cooling fan although there is a grill at one end that suggests there may be one. There are no screws holding this together, the ends have plastic pins that fit into holes in the sides of the body. Look inside and you'll find the odd USB cable and some plastic drive guides. The guides line up with holes in the sides of your hard disk and slide down into grooves in the case, nice and simple but not very secure. No problem if it is going to lie forgotten under your desk but not ideal for a portable device. Also, being plastic they're not going to conduct heat from the drive to the body so I don't feel comfortable putting this in a tight space.

The USB port on the caddy is a gotcha, it's not the one you might expect. It has an A type not the more usual B type that you might find on a printer. That means the cable has the same rectangle connector at both ends, mine was about 35cm long but it you were thinking of using your own extra long cable make sure it's the right type.

It was a pleasant surprise to find a proper fused mains plug on the mains adapter cable and not a tiny moulded thing which is what I was expecting. The mains adapter is also light weight.

Ultimately this is a basic caddy with a weird USB port. No bells but it does what it's supposed to do.
