Cons: if using eSATA, you have to use the USB power adapter

Pros: Price!eSATAAll cables included.
I picked one of these up to make use of my old laptop 320GB hard drive that I removed when I put an SSD into it. Price was awesome at only $11.71! The build quality seems pretty good. I noticed there was a bit of an edge around the black plastic end caps but i don't handle the enclosure often so it doesn't matter.Installation is easy. Just slide the one end out, attach the hard drive to the SATA connectors, slide it back in and put these 2 tiny screw in to hold it in place (the screwdriver is even provided!)So far it seems really quick when using the eSATA connector. The only downside is eSATA doesn't provide power while using USB 2.0 does, so if you want the faster eSATA connection, you will have to use the provided USB to power adapter cable, thus using up another USB port in the end.Small price to pay for the performance!
