Not sturdy, awkward, and an unstable connection
on 5 April 2011
I'd decided to take the HD out of my MacBook Pro to replace it with a SSD so I needed a HD enclosure to house it. The product arrived promptly and did what it said on the packet, I put the harddrive in without any issues and it plugged in and booted up fine. However, the case is basically a piece of plastic and the connection is weak, it's disconnected itself on multiple occasions, mostly without ever being knocked or even moved.
If you think you'll be looking to take the HD out of the enclosure, I ran in to issues quite quickly there too and ended up having to half break the case. It became 'stuck' and a pair of pliers later I'd managed to get it out after snapping a few pieces of the case to get to it. Overall, I wouldn't recommend this is a long-term solution to turning a spare internal HD into an external. If however, you need quick access to a SATA drive via USB, this will more than adequately do the job.
