Customer Reviews of Aluminum 2.5" USB 3.0 SATA HDD/SSD External Hard Disk Enclosure (Red)
Cheap but mostly work2/17/2011
I bought ten of these for a school project. Nine worked. One had significantly lower resolution than the others. Be aware that the cameras do not have 5 megapixel resolution, at least in video mode. The video images (for 8 of 9) is 320x240. I dont know if a different driver would make a difference, but if you just plug it into a computer, you dont get 5MP. I also did not need the microphone, so no idea how well they work.
