This enclosure worked as advertised. It was easy to install the drive and the instructions were very simple. I think the documentation could be a little more extensive. I had to go to the web site support section to find out why there was a USB Y cable. The Y cable is needed if you find your hard drive is not performing properly on a single USB connection. The Y cable has one thick and one thin leg. The thick leg is your traditional data/power USB cable. The thin leg is for additional power only. You only need to use it if you find your drive is not behaving properly. That is a bit more subjective than I prefer but since my drive behaved perfectly, I won’t be worrying about it.
The price of this was $9.99 at Amazon. The quality is fine and it does just what I expected.
