Rated 3 out of 5 by StannierM Value for Money SATA Caddy
I bought 2 of these caddies because I already had one (same product, different name) and it had proved to be a low cost and effective solution to the spare hard disk problem.
After removing the hard disks from 2 Macbook Pros I decided to utilise them as backup disks. The Dynamode product arrived in its own box with its own tiny screwdriver, a slip-case and a composite USB lead. Fitting the disks into the caddy was easy- just 2 screws to undo and refit after re-assembling the business end, drive and outer box. The only issue I have is that the leatherette "slip-case" provided by Dynamode is very tight and not easy to pull over the drive unit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by PabloCabron Awful product
Tinny and cheap. HDD isn't secured inside the case and rattles around. The one I ordered wasn't working when it arrived, also.
Returned for full refund.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Thomas32 Gets the job done
+ Didn't have compatibility issues with Windows or Ubuntu
+ Case was a nice addition
+ Powered by USB only, no need for external power
- Feels really cheap
- Pretty lackluster transfer speed, Would have loved USB 3.0
It's a really basic unit that allows you to make an internal HDD external and it's especially good at cloning a HDD to your new SSD so you can upgrade to an SSD without too much downtime that would occur from reinstalling your chosen OS, it's handy to have and cheap, why not pick one up just in case?

Seems to work; the quality is pretty basic but is OK.
Doesn't seem to do SMART.
For the price you really can't argue.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mad77 Great for most 2.5" disks but not 15mm
Bought a bunch of these but can't fit my LN532162TB WD WD20NPVX Green, 2.5" HDD, 15 mm, SATA III - 6Gb/s, IntelliPower in it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CAW8 Brilliant - Does exactly what it says it should
Bought it for an existing 2.5" drive. Plugged it in. The small screws came with a small screw driver. (didn't use the provided screwdriver as I had my own, but i guess it would work). Plugged into my computer and it worked.
Excellent product. Would highly recommend.
