      I put a 1tb HD in this enclosure and it worked fine after a little playing around in the computer management screen(start - right click on Computer in win 7). i was able to format it and give the drive a name. No esata cable comes with the encosure so i ordered one since i have a 2 port esata pci and an esata port on top of the tower. i have tried everything i can think of to get the drive to be seen by win 7 using esata and the best i can do is have the drive info presented by i can't access the drive like i can using usb. all attempts to get tech support for this has been usless. after a few chats with them they seem to have forgotten me. oh well i'll use the usb method or put it in the tower

      I set up this external enclosure with a 1TB SATA drive. My hard drive is a full height 3.5" drive (not a slim drive) so there was no space left after installing into the enclosure. The hard drive actually is pushing against the fan. I have only used this through the USB interface and was not able to get read speeds higher than 30 Mb/s on my PC and my Mac. Not sure if others have had the same experience. I only need this for routine backups so transfer speed is not critical for me.

      Will probably work with recent Linux kernels.

      The stand does not hold the enclosure firm, but can be corrected easily enough.

      Other than that, absolutly no problems.

      I'm ordering a second one.

          When my old PC died, but the hard drives were still good, I needed to get to the data. This encolsure works great with both IDE and SATA drives, and I was able to get everything off the old drives without a hitch. Very happy with this enclosure!

              This was purchased as a way to use some old IDE drives that have been idle since SATA became available. Easy install, very fast and quiet.
              The case screws are very easy to strip but all they do is hold the side plates on.

                Thhi is an excellent external harddrive case. The case is made of aluminum and houses a fan to dissipate heat. There is a pilot light to let one know when it is on. The case is easy to install the harddrive and all necessary cables are included.

                      I am not particularly tech savvy, but I wanted an enclosure for my old IDE hard drive from my now dead, antiquated computer. This enclosure was perfect. It was very easy to install the hard drive and even easier to connect to my new computer with the USB connection. It is working perfectly as well.

                          Contrary to what "HighPocks" said, this is not junk! Pulled IDE hard drive out of tower running Win 98SE, inserted into enclosure, and transfered files via USB 2 port to laptop running VISTA. There isn't a better way. Snug fit, but not impossible, and who would want their hard drive flopping around inside a can. The only negative is the loose connection to the base stand, which can be fixed with tape, glue, a screw, or a paper shim.

                          Works like it should. Had a drive fail and the company sent me a loaner drive with no enclosure so I needed something that I could use to transfer files to a new drive.

                            i am back and forward with 3 drives all using the same enclosure and am quite happy with its performance
                            have owned for 3 months now and no complaints
                            it does take a certain angle to place the drive inside but you'll figure it out. will buy another one

                            Put simply, it is a piece of junk! I have several other docking stations and SATA and IDE drive enclosures so I do know junk when I see it. There
                            is insufficient room for a 3.5" drive and the attempt to make it an IDE AND a SATA enclosure just utterly flops. I bought it thinking that it was an IDE docking station, something that I wanted but the info on the sale page just wasn't clear enough to me. I wanted an IDE docking station that does not use cables. I now have one that has sockets embedded in plastic as most SATA docking stations have and it does the job.

                                My desktop stopped working so I bought a new one and several weeks later I picked up this enclosure. I removed the 3 hard dirves from the old desktop and placed them one at a time in the enclosure and transfered the data to the new computer in just a few minutes each. Now I have it setup on my router with one of the old hard dives as a backup. Very handy way to do a backup!

                                  Easy to assemble and works well. Just slip your internal hard drive into the case and you've built your own external hard drive for half the price. Built in fan protects hard drive from over heating. Simple on/off button that turns on when you click it on and off when you want it off- sounds basic, but I have hard drives that have a recessed push button and sometimes they don't want to shut down. Only issue is that the interior is a little tight, and I felt like I had to shove it in.
