A reliable product!11/4/2008
I've used cheaper brands before, buying them from a local PC-only store. After the second one died after a few months of use, it became apparent that spending a few extra dollars up front would be cheaper in the long run. As I upgrade my laptop drives, I take the old ones and convert them to bus-powered external drives using these enclosures. They are useful for storing content I can take anywhere there's a computer or capturing assets from clients without having to put my laptop into Target Disk Mode or meddle with File Sharing on their computer. Well worth the money!
