4* Neat but slightly flawed
Reviewed by Lincoln on 17/07/2016
A decent quality unit with a nice finish. Easy to use and works well overall. Good value for money.

The unit is equipped with a spacer for thinner drives, which it needs as the design relies on the drive being thick enough to be held in place by the case itself. i.e. there's no internal mounting bracket.

The case-fit design works fine for SSDs but creates a problem for HDDs as the tightness of the fit obstructs the vent hole present in the top of any HDD body. (The tiny one with the sign next to it saying 'do not obstruct'.)

Blocking the vent will significantly increase wear on the HDD so in the end I drilled a small hole in the case above the HDD vent to allow the drive to function correctly. As the drive is mounted face down this put the hole out of the way on the underside of the case. I also stuck four small rubber feet to the bottom of the case to provide airflow to the hole and to provide a little shock protection.

So, it's a good choice for SSDs. Less so for HDDs.
