I got this enclosure at a spcial price offered in a coupon ad. In Win 7 the controller shows up as External USB 3.0. The approx. 40cm USB cable can conduct sufficient power for a bus-powered HDD to start spinning (unlike many other cables with higher electrical resistance). Transfer rates are OK: I tested it on a 10-year-old notebook mit a PCIexpress expansion card (Renesas chipset) and got an average of ~50MB/s copying large files. On a newer machine data rate might be higher.
The finish of the transparent shells is good and they come covered with a protective film. One could insert the HDD without the need of using any tool. It could hold HDDs up to 9.5mm height. The only point to think about is heat dissipation. When you use an older or high performance HDD that (still) is getting hot, a metall enclosure with an additional heat pad would be a better idea.

Perfect little case
Received it after 2 weeks. This case came with a short description and a very short USB-micro-cable.
The tranparent case looks great and has the advantage to identify my drives easyly.
I did install my HDD immediately as I've got this case.
What shall I say? The interface is recognized correct by my pc, the data-transfer is very fast (more than 100Mb/s), as fast as my HDD can read and write.
I am fully satisfied and would surely buy this enclosure again.
