Once you get over the fact the case is plastic (most are anyway) you come to appreciate why this case is one of the most popular. It converts your internal drive into an external one. Plug and play, literally. Simple to use and installation is, in practical terms, inexistent. It just works. We would recommend this to anyone who wants to squeeze the life out of slightly older drives. Honestly, you can’t go wrong with this.
