The drive looks great (apart from the switch, come to that later)

The drive installation is the easiest i have ever had, pop it apart, pop the drive in, cover back on, job done.
The USB 3 is really fast.

Now the bit i don't like.

The switch is really poor quality, no positive click and i have had to push a number of times, the only way you are certain its on is when the switch illuminates. When the PC is powered down/restarted the switch has to be reset/ switched on again, this means the drive has to be in a very accessible place, not what i wanted!
Because you can't be sure its powered up you have to have the switch facing you which means you have the power cable and USB 3 cable looped at the front because they are all on one end, a right mess!

I have a number of 3.5" external drives, all remain switched on and power straight away from the PC start, my 2.5" drives are PC powered so this is not an issue

I should mention, i use a power down extension to power all my devises off with computer shut down, if i left my drives running all the time day and night this would probably not be an issue,

I received my Allcam HDD enclosure 2 days after ordering it, so well done Amazon! I ordered a brand new 250 GB hard drive to use it with.

I plugged everything in (without the instructions. it is quite straight forward).

Win XP recognized the box instantly, installed drivers and said that my new hardware is ready to use. However, I did not see it in my computer.

After checking the Allcam website, I realized that I had forgotten to format my new hard drive (as is always the advice given by computer experts). Instructions can be found on the Allcam website. [...]

I followed the instructions on how to format a hard drive, it was easy. I had never done it before, and I got it first time :) It only took 5 minutes to complete as well!

After formatting, the drive appeared in my computer and worked straight away. I am impressed; I also like the inbuilt fan feature which increases the longevity of the hard disk.

I have already started moving documents over.

If there is a drawback with this product, it is that the sleek-looking glossy body attracts finger prints no end. But this is the case with most of the things on my table so I don't mind too much.

Allcam gives four screws (and a spare one for those careless people like me) as well as a screw driver to help fix the hard drive in place so that it doesn't rattle when moved.

I personally give this product an A+

Case arrived in good condition within a few days. Installed a HD to the case in approx 3 - 5 minutes , no problem with windows detecting it.

The case comes with a backup program , however you dont have to install it if you don't want to use the 1 button backup program.

Unit is quiet (can't even hear the fan) and remains cool.

Not only does it look simple, it is very simple to fit a new SATA HD and connect up. No screws, just quick release clips and you're away. I've had *other* makes and models of external HD cases and this one fits the bill perfectly. Ooh yes, the fan hasn't become noisy yet (if it does then it's simple to disconnect). I've also had no issues with transferring files from a few KB to 50 or so GB. Highly recommended!

Colour Name: BlackSize: USB 3.0 ver Verified Purchase
Needing to replace an older but now too small external hard drive, I bought this to take advantage of an especially advantageous price possible on a fast 3TB internal HDD. Unfortunately, none of the enclosure designs that I have used previously appeared to be available as the search for "3.5 inch USB 3.0 enclosure" failed to offer anything familiar and it is an instance where buying what may be available rather than what is preferred is the one remaining choice.

I had not had any prior experience of the brand or the specific case design and it needed all of 5 seconds to figure out that the button on the front releases the metal base and allows the drive to be installed. No tools are needed and installation should take 1-2 minutes from start to finish, if not less.

Within the enclosure is a plastic sheet which should be retained to insulate the drive's circuit board from incidental contact with the metal surface and to prevent a possible short-circuit. It is a rather loose fit and significantly smaller than the enclosure and may allow a short-circuit to occur were it to become displaced.

The case construction is flimsy, to say the least, and is mostly plastic other than its thin metal base. Although sometimes illustrated as having a rocker switch for power control, it uses an inexpensive and none-too-positive push-switch. As several more short-cuts have been taken in the design and assembly of the product, it is likely that it would have been used until a better alternative became available. A second search using the original parameters offered a preferred enclosure within hours of receipt of this enclosure and another order has been raised to replace this.
