I didn't pay a lot for this item so I tried to set my expectations accordingly. Ultimately, it works fine as a way to connect an extra 3 1/2 inch hard drive to other computers via USB. The description says the unit is self-powered. However, there is a power cord included... you draw power from the PC. The power cord is built to plug in to either a USB or PS2 port. I can't get it to work in a USB port which is a little frustrating but as long as you can plug the power into a PS2 port it works fine. The connector is built with a pass-through so you can still connect your mouse and the cord at the same time. Overall, you can get this to work well with a little patience. For the money I paid I'm satisfied with the ability to use my extra laptop drives for transferring and backing up data.

I had no issues whatsoever with this product. I was working on a non bootable hard drive and assumed all data was lost. Using the CP Tech USB 2.0 2.5" Platinum Series External Hard Drive Enclosure I was able to retrieve 100% of the data! I assumed cooling would be an issue with this model but no evidence of overheating has been observed. Makes a great affordable external drive...no question!
