Rated 1 out of 5 by from I got this because of the price tag. I should have spent the extra like i have just done and got one that works. I plugged it in like you should and light comes on but nothing else happens. I HDD does not turn over and my computer did not read it as there. So i took it back and got the ( Probox ). This worked as soon as i plugged it in. Happy now.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Just bought this enclosure for a spare HDD from a laptop. Packaging looks ok but the case itself is so thin and poorly made. The drive caddy looks like it cost 3p to manufacture. I have no confidence in any long term use of this device.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Its a handy piece of kit It does what it says its just only problem is it doesn't come with instructions so you need to know what you are doing to use it. To the people who say it doesn't work it does, its just you didn't use it correctly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very poor As this is designed to fit a 2.5" this was not the case when I tried to insert my old laptop Hardrive in to it, very very poorly made and over priced. Computer did not read the drive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It Works I didn't really want this product, having read the poor reviews. As I was informed that the ProBox had been discontinued, I took a chance on this. I took it home, installed my laptop hard drive into the case, plugged it in to my desk top, and it revealed all the contents. I was also able to transfer a picture from my desk top on to it as a test. Only four stars because it does'nt have any instructions, so just trial and error. Very helpful staff member 5233 in Leeds.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works but slight issue The enclosure works as advertised but there were 2 things to note: 1 - the back of the drive was difficult to fit into back end moulding - solved by shaking it rather more than I liked. 2 - the USB lead had 2 plugs at the computer end (to draw enough power), but the drive would not run with both plugged in. Solved by using only the plug on the thicker cable.
