Great external case
I like how easy this is to add a drive to and get up and running, there is no fuss and it is reliable i have two of these now and will buy more as needed.
By Julius Lauri
Better than expected.
A fully functional enclosure for a 2tb hard drive. 5 stars for the product because it goes an extra mile to compete out of its price range.Pros:-cheap, but doesn't feel that way when put together-solid outer shell-stand with vibration dampeners-usb 3.0-really nice finish and color scheme; they weren't lying about the electroplating-the activity lights aren't overly bright-included screwdriver if you have no tools on hand, necessary installation hardware (screws, etc.) presentcons:-thin, cheap sheet metal used for the internal structure-the activity light cables must be gently bent out of the way during drive installationfinal thoughts:both of the cons are inconsequential for what the enclosure offers. The flimsy metal may act as a shock absorber. Gently bending the activity light cable out of the way when installing a hard drive is no challenge either.I just installed the drive so i can't speak about reliability. If anything goes wrong i'll update this review.

Working great and very easy to install and use. 3tb no problem.
Working great! Would love a firewire version if they have one (i can't remember if i've searched yet or not).Edit: 01/29/18: i just bought two more of these drive cases and they've replaced the thin metal inner chassis with a plastic chassis and moved the light bulb to the back of the case so that it can't be seen from the front. It still seems to be working properly, and, i'll probably buy more when i need to, but, the quality just got a little cheaper. They've replaced the nice sturdy rocker on/off switch with a push button that has a hard time latching and requires two hands to depress it (one to hold the case in place while the other hand pushes the button in). As well, because the inner chassis is plastic, the machine tightened screws that you need to unscrew to get the case open are a lot harder to unscrew (because they are screwed into unformed plastic initial instead of a true thread) and they don't fit quite as well as the metal to metal did. I deducted a star. I still like it, but, i no longer love it.

Very happy with my purchase
Had an older 1tb hdd that i wanted to use to archive files from my son's old unit. This product worked as i expected. Very happy with my purchase. Actually i had trouble giving it to him. I wanted to keep it.

Good replacement external hard drive enclosure!
I had a older hard drive & got this x-media external hard drive case for this older 3.5" mechanical hard drive. It's cheap-looking but good enough for me & made of metal with vented holes on one end of case. 2 screws on the top keeps the inside hard drive housing & hard drive in place. Inside hard drive holder is plastic.Pros: easy to slide in 3.5" mechanical hard drive, on/off switch with power on led light on backside, usb 3.0 connection with included power cord, ac power adapter included, made of metal with vent holes, comes with standcons: kinda cheap-looking & inside hard drive holder is plastic...Don't over tighten the screws to hold hard drive on plastic inner housing & the 2 small screws that holds the inner housing is hard to unscrew......You get a dinky screwdriver with this hard drive.I gave this item 5 stars....It works very well as it should with no problems!

Screws PITA to remove.
If you like the idea of having to drill out the cheap screws that come with it, then this is the case for you. The included screw driver breaks very easil, and, the screws to remove the outer case are really tough to remove - especially without stripping the heads. I actually purchased a new screwdriver that would fit snugly, but still stripped the heads on some of them.

Does Exactly What You Expect it to Do
It does exactly what it is advertised to do, with no problems.

Nice Enclosure
Works well, no issues. Paired with a 2TB WD Green drive.
By Lisa Bowman
Can't open
Absolute trash. I'd return it, but by the time my screwdrivers came in the mail, it was too late. So basically the nails are nigh impossible to get off. I haven't even been able to use it yet.
