It does what it is designed to do.

Good unit. Once you get it apart insert your hard drive and reassemble you are good to go. Does exactly what it was designed to do. For multiple hard drive testing or ongoing switching of hard drives you must be cautious of the connections as they are connections. Could last a lifetime if cared for..

Does the job perfectly

My old external HD was no longer working since the enclosure was defective. I bought this one and the Geek Squad did the exchange of enclosures for me and now all is working perfectly. I have no idea how difficult the installation or closure was but my old ext.HD works like new.

Hard drive enclosure

Easy to install and working fine is described. Just a little bit troublesome if you need to change drive because it is not open and close easily, 5 screws to be removed before drive can be removed and closed. Other than that, it is a good product.

Good results

SATA hard drive fitted well into case, however the wire to carry data had to be twisted a full 180 degrees in order to plug into the internal circuit board. Cannot help but wonder if there will be trouble with the connection in future..., as the wire is so short that there is a lot of stress on the connection.That wire should be at least a little longer.Also the u it tips over very easily. Base could be wider to give better support..Otherwise, unit works very well. Would recommend as much cheaper than having a pro shop recover data for you.
