First off arrived 2 days ahead of estimated delivery date.........so well pleased.

Not much to say about a caddy enclosure....it's a 2 pieces of coloured aluminum and a tiny circuit board to plug into one end of your 2.5" laptop hdd.

Once the circuit board has been connected it's just a matter of sliding the 2.5" hdd into the 2 small slots of the bottom part of the enclosure (led and mini usb slot) and give the hdd a slight to firm press down at the top end away from the circuit board end to give it a snug fit.
and simply align the top half of the enclosure and snap both ends together.

NO SCREWS REQUIRED two little blister/dimples clip the enclosure together.

Set up couldn't be simpler,just plug the supplied usb cable into two free usb slots on your PC and the PC will do the rest for you.(windows xp,vista,7,8)

After installed on your PC you may format the enclosure

Very easy takes 2-3mins

For the Playstation 3 to recognize the new enclosure it must be formatted to FAT32
takes a few seconds and unlike microsoft's format it will run on any PC,MAC and most if not all games consoles.

The new enclosure as a whole seems to work well and found no problems to date,it's quiet and the led flashes to let you know it's doing something.
May not look like much but worth a purchase at this price if you have a spare laptop HDD lying around and want some cheap memory storage.

Since bought a 2nd enclosure only this time black (red previously) and the contents have changed.

The Bipra External USB Enclosure Case for 2.5 inch hard drives is fantastic for the money. It is well constructed, fast, supports SATA and a much cheaper than some others out there that deliver less in performance and in quality. The product is very easy to set up, all you have to do is open the product, place a hard drive into the slot and plug it into the computer to get started. No need for driver CD's and a frustration-free experience. The product is proudly constructed from metal giving the overall product a nice look and feel in the hand and provides a nice casing for a hard drive that will be transported to many locations.

Advantages:
Fast file transfers (depending on your drive, results may differ)
Easy to install
Very high quality casing
Usable with any SATA 2.5 Inch hard drive

Disadvantages:

Uses a Mini USB Type B connection rather than a Micro USB Type B
Sharp edges

Overall, if your looking for a hard drive case to store your hard drive for portable reasons then look no further! This Bipra External USB Enclosure is the perfect spot for quality, performance and all of that without burning a hole in your pocket.

I bought this to use with an old 100GB hard drive out of an old Toshiba laptop; I'm using it in conjunction with a Raspberry Pi 2 running Pidora Linux. The enclosure works perfectly; Pidora recognised the drive straight away once it was plugged in. I also love the minimalist design of the enclosure, and the fact that it's made out of aluminium (with good heat dissipation) means that it's not overheating my drive either. The enclosure also comes with a USB cable (with a Y-adapter if you want to add extra power), a faux leather pouch, and a little Philips screwdriver (although I'd recommend using your own screwdriver if you have one of the correct size, as the screwdriver it comes with isn't very good, although it's just about up to the job of putting the two screws in place to hold the enclosure together)...

Great value for money. Comes with a letherette case and a lead. Cheap as chips, but works well. One issue is that the cable is the old larger usb, not micro usb and was 2.0 not 3.0.

But for the price a good deal.

It's ok, but main issue is that it is NOT USB 3. Yes it can connect to a USB 3 port and it has a blue internal bit, but I have tested speeds with various HD's and can assure you it is no faster on USB 3 than USB 2. I paid a small premium but hey ho.

Did what I wanted. Turns out to clone the old hard drive I would have only needed the lead but with the case it has now given me a spare hard drive.

Neat fit and look although a bit fiddly to attach it to the connector but care did it in the end!!

Not a bad little drive caddy, but it is a bit fiddly to open without marking the case. However, once done, it performs as expected, but I do prefer other drive caddies that are less fiddly to work with.

Not sure why others had an issue with installing as it was far easier than other products I have had, the usb 3 cable worked fine on usb 2, drive was recognised straight away. Will need a little more time with it before I could say more but so far the product is exactly as expected which given the price is a very pleasant surprise.
