5* Excellent

Although some have had probs according to the reviews, for me this caddy is excellent.

It's well built aluminium, includes everything you need in terms of physical hardware, and works perfectly on my laptop.

Hard to think how they could do better with this, and for the price it's absolutely incredible.
5* great bit of kit

5* Super Duper

I have to say, when I opened the box I was gutted! I was hoping for the SATA version, but then after checking my order, it was my own fault for ordering IDE.

No matter, I have a 2.5" IDE drive to play with, so hooked it together and plugged into my PC.

To be honest for the price I wasn't expecting much, but I have to say i was pleasantly surpised.


Hmm, now to buy another one for SATA!!! :)
5* Works well, comes with cable, excellent value

5* Does what it says

Fitted an old (known to be working) 30GB laptop drive, plugged it in to a PC: XP recognised it as a USB mass storage device and allocated a drive letter. Tried again with single USB connection: no problem. I suggest the twin USB is where a single (laptop) USB port cannot provide the power. Bargain price.
4* Excellent caddy, might need powered USB hub
Reviewed by David on 07/10/2008
I have bought 2 of these. First one (6 months ago) came with a cable that had 2 USB plugs, to enable it to get power from 2 USB sockets - and worked perfectly on a laptop. The second I bought recently had a single headed cable, (and different socket at drive end- so I could not use cable from previous one), and could not get enough power from laptop unless I used a POWERED USB2 hub. Apart from that restriction, it works perfectly, just like the first one did.
4* Good price and it just works

East to install and it just works, though you will need to use up TWO USB ports in order to get enough power for the HD.

No PSU suppluied even though packaging stated that its supplied with one.
3* Not bad
Reviewed by Barry on 17/03/2008
Looks ok and works fine (its an external box and what it should!!), screw driver for the screws was the wrong size, and they could have included a couple of thin sheets of padding to stop hdd rattling in ur hand but apart from that its ok as its making use of the 80Gb Seagate drive I just pulled out of my mini file server. Although on my Samsung X05 and Mac Pro laptop I have to boost the power i.e. use 2 ports but on three other normal PC's its been fine, hdd rated at 0.42amp.

Insixt caddy supplied instead of Dynamode but looks identical to Dynamode. Fitted 60Gb hard drive from Toshiba laptop but when connected to both a laptop and desktop computer, hardware detected but drive not accessible from windows. Caddy replaced by BT with another Insixt unit but same problem. Tried Add Hardware under Control Panel but unsucessful with message "Device cannot start (Code 10)" Not recommended
