Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Cable

Cable:
"One odd thing - not sure if it's a good thing or bad but one USB cable is only a few inches long while the other is more than 2 feet long."
_
"I hate devices that use less common cables."
_
"Can I damage my computer's USB ports or the drive if I attach the wrong end of the male to male cable to the enclosure?"
_
"I got the cable to go in so no problem there."
_
"The cable compatibility is strictly USB 2.0- I had an error when I plugged it into one of my USB 3.0 slots."
_
"10 10 case with a fantastic price, but a more standard connection cable would be nice."
_
"Two stars, because at least it worked once I was able to secure the drive, and the included USB cable feels like it's worth more than the entire package."
_
"I like it, would recommend it and I like the metal and usb cables"
_
"For the same $ or less as buying just an adapter cable I was able to clone my old drive and then provide an attractive external usb drive for file backups."

Case

Case:
"I don't love that it has a standard USB connection on the case, instead of the more standard mini USB."
_
"Couldn't be easier: open case, plug in h. d., close case, insert two screws (reading glasses may help for these teeny-weenies) with tiny screwdriver provided."
_
"I was not able to insert my HP laptop hard drive into the case at all - the sections of the case where the screws are to go stick out too much to get the case over the drive."
_
"Sold by someone else, fulfilled by Amazon - guess we all need to beware of this situation... Had the case fit my HD, it would be a 5-star review (assuming the thing worked) since the fit and form are great."
_
"The blue indicating light is hard to see and I have to force the HD into the case - a real tight fit."
_
"I have a lot of these cases from different companies, and this isn't the worst I've seen, but it's also not the best."
_
"Love the extra protection of the silicone case!"
_
"The rubber edge is a nice addition in case you drop it off your desk or something."
_
"it seems secure and has not cause a problem yet... but i worry about the fact that it is a metal case and is in such close proximity to the drive's exposed circuitry."
_
"My internal HDd works perfect in this case and gives me a good external HDd to use for movies and games."
