I bought one after realising that the new hard drive I'd bought for my laptop was too fat, 12.5mm instead of 9.5mm so I bought one of these to use the drive externally, set up and installation was easy to do, case is well constructed and feels solid, it is however a little larger than some of the others I have used, no doubt due to the fact it will accept the larger drive and has IDE and ESata compatibility built in. Great item and very recommended.

Fantastic Casings

The fact that you don't need a power adapter to run eSata mode is fantastic.

The speed is fantastic and the cover you get makes these casings ideal and very neat.

If you have 2.5 inch SATA drives that you want to use on your laptop then these casings are for you.

I bought two now I have 1.25TB HDD space running SATA drives on my lattop :-)

This must be one of the best 2.5" caddies. Internally you can install either an IDE or SATA drive. Externally you can connect it to your computer with either USB or eSATA (note you can only use USB with an IDE drive).

The unit comes with the following cables:
1) USB cable to power the unit
2) USB data cable
3) eSata to eSata data cable

It's very easy to install and set up and it comes with a nice soft carry case.

I installed a 320GB Western Digital SATA drive for a great backup/portable drive setup.

All in all highly recommended.

Faulty Item and needs separate USB for power

Had high hopes for this product but after just a couple of days it developed a fault where the power connector has to be held in at a certain angle or the devices loses power, potentially damaging the drive inside. Also didn't realise that when using the eSATA cable the unit also needs to be plugged into a separate USB port for power - as my laptop only has 3 USB sockets (one of which is the combined USB/eSATA), it means using this device only leaves one USB port free which isn't ideal.
