After 6 years of tender loving care, I managed to spill water on my 13" MacBook (the kind with the white plastic case... a classic). Though I tried flipping it over and leaving a fan on it for a few days, the logic board was fried and it would have cost me $500+ bucks to fix. I decided to just go ahead and buy a new MacBook Pro (it's so shiny and beautiful), but since I hadn't backed up my old MacBook in about a year, I was left with the issue of figuring out how to get all my data onto the new machine. There's a store in Seattle that'll do data migration for $150, but I wasn't willing to fork over that much money. When I heard that I could basically turn my old hard drive into an external HD, and for only 10% of the cost of taking it into the store, I was ecstatic!When the package came to my door, I immediately ripped it open and attempted to put my hard drive in, but I couldn't do it; there were some screws on my Hitachi hard drive that were bumping up against some little plastic tabs in the enclosure that wouldn't allow the hard drive to slide in at all, no matter how I angled it. However, I grabbed a variety of tools and clipped the plastic off and it worked just fine! I had to kind of shove the hard drive down on the end so that it would fit, but I wasn't ever too worried about anything breaking. The over-snugness of the enclosure is why I dropped down to 4 stars.It worked beautifully! I transferred ~22 Gb of pictures and another ~22Gb of video, which each took about 7-8 minutes. I transferred ~31 Gb of music in about 12 minutes. I'm super happy that I was able to get my files after the tragic water spillage without too much of an investment. Obviously I've never used one of these before so I don't have much of a comparison, but ultimately it did what I needed it to do and I'm pretty happy with it.
Excellent product. I wanted to remove the hard drive from my fried HP laptop and plug it in my new one.- Perfect fit for my Sata2 hard drive- Extremely easy to use (it took me 5 minutes!)- On/off button very useful- Looks nice :)Tip: check your Hard Drive specs and size before buying the product as it may not be the right size.
Being entirely fabricated from plastic this is not the most robust of enclosures but it's reasonably priced and easy to use.Tool-free installation of drives is a big time saver.The supplied USB cable is a little too short and quite stiff but overall the product does what I need with no problems at all.I'd recommend this product for occasional use but not for 'road warriors' who would be better of with a metal enclosure.
I've had loads of these types of things now, and this is the best so far. Really easy to open and install the drive, no fiddly little screws required.It also only uses one USB port, leaving you with a spare on your PC/laptop - and as my laptop only has two, this is really useful to me. It's as fast as my SATA hard drive will allow, and works well on PC, Mac and even with a Raspberry Pi.I've tested with a couple of drives, including SSDs, and they all work fine.Very happy, and will be buying more.
Great external drive case!I'm using an extra SSD hard drive in this enclosure and it works great. It's easy to add the hard drive of your choice without any tools - which also makes it easy to swap hard drives if you need to. The cover slides back and pulls off and leaves a easy to access area for the drive to connect.I like the full size USB connection on the enclosure also, no messing around with micro USB cables for no reason. USB 3 gives the speeds that work great with the SSD also and a standard drive would work well too. There's an on/off switch on the back of the enclosure also, I like the option but I'm not sure how usable it really is. The power comes from the USB connection so there's no additional cables to deal with either.I've used this with my Surface Pro 2 and it works fine where another external drive I have will not work with the Surface Pro 2 due to, what I believe, is a lack of power provided by the micro USB connection. I've also used this drive with a standard laptop and a desktop, all without issues.
