These are terrific. I have a Macbook Air, which means my hard drive is small, so I use a couple internal drives in these external cases to store my iTunes folder and iPhoto folder, and another one for backing up my data. They're super lightweight and easy to use. And the best part is the On/Off switch. It's so hard to find in HD cases with this feature. And it's USB 3.0! I would definitely purchase these again.
I bought two of these to upgrade my USB 2.0 enclosures. These work great and the connectors on the unit and cables seem substantial. Don't quite get why people have problems with the connector cables, USB 3.0 needs that connector, period.I am replacing aluminum cases with light plastic. At the price though, it is inexpensive enough to replace should they break. The HDD is the important part and most cases are not going to protect it from the forces induced by being dropped anyway. in fact, the more mass in the case the more force on HDD from the drop. Basic physics.No case I have seen offers any kind of isolation from drops to the HDD (cushioning) so yo are really at the mercy of the HDD manufacturer'sdesign specs.So, I am giving this case a 5 star. Oh yeah, I like the power switch so it can be turned off w/o disconnecting form the laptop to preserve battery power (USB 3.0 is a fair load).. Works GREAT in my Dell XPS 12 inch two in one. Nice to NOT require the pigtailed connector which ties up two USB ports (one for power the other for communication). But, on the Dell, one port only offer USB 2.0 and the other one give USB 3.0. If you look at the ports, they are physically different.
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.
Edit and update below...Wow, ok, I ordered two of these to replace Toshiba cases on my other portable drives. Exact same sata drives, two different results.#1 The first case would not close around the drive, I ended up snapping off two of the plastic tabs fighting with it for over thirty minutes. I ended up smashing it together, then taping it together with duct tape. The ends are snapped together but the sides are bulging with literally 1/16th layer of tape around the case.#2 Sigh, I might as well try it I thought, removed the harddrive from the old case, slid it in, slide the cover on, snapped into place sealed perfectly in under 5 seconds.Edit: They sent a replacement and it snapped together great, must have been a one off or something. Changed to 5 stars!
It works fine, although I had trouble formatting the drive from scratch when installed.When booting into Linux the thing went berserk and the drive needed another reformat afterwards.I know the ad does not list Linux amongst the operating systems, but I do not usually expect things connected to the USB port to have their filesystems trashed even if they are not compatible.
