This was well packaged and arrived promptly. It seemed to have the docking port and 2 metal gizmos in the correct location. So imagine my disappointment after several minutes' frustration to realise that the connector plug was at 180 degrees in orientation to that of the receiving socket in my laptop. I suspect that I would have liked it if I had been able to use it. My machine is a SVS13A1S9SPR. Whether this was a faulty product or whether it is simply not suitable for this computer model I am not sure. I have returned the item. This return is still in train but the courier arrived promptly so hope all well.
Sadly the sleeve is designed more for the older 14inch screen computers - my ibm would have fitted it but this was actually for a modern HP Pavilion and for this the sleeve will not do. So if you have a small widescreen then look elsewhere. I will need to make a return.
At the beginning I was concerned that this was not going to work. However after removing the side housing from the drive I found that it would potentially fit into the metal case. It was also necessary to pull off the grey end fitting that went over the double metal rows of tiny connectors at the end. Having done this I slid the drive down to the end and pushed _very_ hard to engage the connectors into the terminal. Then I connected the lid and the usb lead was engaged. My computer did not enable use of both usbs so no extra power supplied (or needed) for my 75 gb disk. All works well and so 5 points awarded.
