Nice enclosure


from Chesapeake  -  Heavy Duty User

Product was perfect for installing a 2.5" SSD for external use. Easy to assemble and worked right the first time.


Does everything it needs to do.


from New York, NY  -  Heavy Duty User

Bought this so that I could migrate my old internal hard drive, before replacing it with an SSD. Works like a charm, no complaints.

Questions about this item:

Jess I  Can this be used like an HP pocket Media Drive for back up and restore ?
Andrew R  I'm not sure I understand your question. This item is an empty enclosure that may be outfitted with a 2.5" SATA I/II/III bare hard drive (or SSD). With a compatible drive installed, this unit would become a portable hard drive much like ready made units from Western Digital, Seagate, etc..
