5.0 out of 5 stars Bravo!, 24 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: CiT 3.5 inch USB 2.0 SATA and IDE HDD Enclosure (Accessory)
I am very pleased with this device. I bought it 2 months ago and i've been using it 24/7 since it arrived, mostly for backup.

I've read some reviews saying that this HDD enclosure wasted the hard drive inside and that it gets too hot and whatnot. Let me tell you that this is not the case and, if this happens to you, it's probably a defective item.

The power supply is very stable and outputs the correct voltage all the time. It doesn't get hot, even though i have it plugged 24/7. The hard drive itself always reads about 35 Celsius / 95 Fahrenheit, which is perfectly normal. I've used all types of HDDs inside; SATA, IDE, 2.5", 3.5", and even an SSD. No problems at all.

I can't find any flaw with this thing, to be honest. It has a solid build quality, good transfer speed for a USB 2.0 device, stylish, comes with a low quality screwdriver (they are very cheap though) and SATA + IDE cables. These cables are not the best but they are definately decent and you can also change them, since they are detachable.

Very good device for such a low price. I love the fact that you can fit all kind of HDD's inside, not just 3.5".

Recommended.
