Rated 2 out of 5 by from The only 5.25 external SATA case available? This is the only SATA external USB external case I could find to hold an optical drive. New laptops rarely have optical drives in them, so this for me is essential. The unit is badly made, one of the top screws was cross threaded, the front flap needed adjusting by twisting the case to stop it sticking open. It has some blue LED lamps in it extended around the side of the body via clear plastic rods inside the mesh. These are most annoying as they flash when the drive is working in time with the data stream like a HDD indicator, but much larger and brighter. I've disconnected them. The case does work, it's supplied with an eSATA cable, (no use to me) and a reasonably long A to B USB 3 cable. It seems to have a good quality external power supply. It also has an on/off switch fitted at the rear With the LEDs working it's garishly annoying, with them disconnected it looks reasonable and does the job. I hope the not inexpensive price was spent on the electronics, not the casework So far that's how it seems. Buy it if you like bling, I just needed something to hold a high quality optical drive externally with USB connection. I've said no to the "would you recommend this product" button, but that's my opinion, others may love it? If you can find a simple alternative at a more reasonable price, go for it. If not you are stuck with the Icybox.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Build Quality not equal to the price tag This is pretty much the only external/USB3 enclosure for 5.25 drives I could find. Pretty easy to install a drive, the enclosure is a lot bigger than you'd expect. My came with one of the pads for the fee missing so it wobbles around on the desk. Overall the build quality is not great for the price and simple nature of the product, but seems to work. I wouldn't want to cart it around much though.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from When used with CD/DVD extremely noisy The unit was easy to access and installation was simple, but when i started to use the CD/DVD drive it became very noisy ... i would not buy another from this manufacturer for use with CD/DVD, i have no experience of this unit when used with Hard Drive devices

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product This is really handy, especially when your case supports a top 3x120 radiator but then compromises the 5.25 slots, Pros: USB 3 eSata Looks good Cons: USB 3 cable is blue, black would have been better. Could be a bit smaller as it does not consist of much.

Questions & Answers

Is there a two bay version of this device?

I would like to be able to burn two (or more) DVDs at once directly from my Windows 10 PC USB. Is there such a device available. Thanks.
