I used this enclosure with the 250GB SATA 3Gb s 8MB 5400RPM 2.5IN Scorpio Blue Western Digital Drive (Dell Part Number A2387324) and have had no trouble with it. It's a "KEEN" product ! I like it. Its fun to build your own portable drive. No software needed. Plug and play. Make sure you use both USB cords given to get the correct power to your drive. Works fine. Remember, you will have to format the drive once it is installed and hooked up. If its something you're not comfortable with or don't know how to do you can always order one pre-built from dell and those are great too. I just like my little projects. I got and extra enclosure so if I want to, i can pull the two drives from my computer and switch it with the other one I just got. That way I preserve my original Laptop drive if I decide to install a different operating system. Either way, its a cool little set up and very easy to use if you're familar with finding and formatting a drive in your operating system. Even comes with a little slip on cover. Cool Beans !!!!

Title:

Hard drive enclosure

I needed a hard drive enclosure because my hard drive had crashed, so I hoped to use the enclosure to encase my bad hard drive and try and retrieve my files. This enclosure works well, it installed successfully on my old hard drive, however, it has a format function that totally erases everything from the hard drive before it can be used. Therefore I was unable to use it to retrieve my files. I do think that it would be useful to use, though, if you want to just purchase a hard drive that needs an enclosure and use it as an external or portable hard drive.

Simple and Effective

This is a simple fix to reuse or save old laptop hard drives. I got it to save the information from a "dead" HP laptop, that had a good hard drive. After saving that information, I reformatted the drive and use it now as my portable drive. Quality is really good. Screws to lock the drive in are really small, so be careful not to lose them. That's the only negative thing about it. Works great! Thanks again Dell.
Pros:Finances, photos, extra storage space, transferring files
