"Very good product that gives you peace of mind"4.5 starson by caliwood
Pros: The software was very simple and very good
Cons: Hard drive case is cheap plastic
Summary: I purchased this kit to clone a hard drive I have. It worked like a charm, and I was able to use the kit to create a cloned hard drive within 30 minutes.
The instruction manual was good, but it left out an important point of installing the device driver for the USB hard drive case. Basically, before you start with the instructions in the manual, you should connect the USB hard drive case to the laptop via the provided USB cable. When you boot up the laptop, it will recognize the USB device and load the appropriate device driver. At that point, you can shutdown the laptop and start with the instructions in the manual.
The USB hard drive case they include in the kit is made of cheap plastic. The manufacturer suggestions a secondary use of the kit as an external hard drive for backing up files. Unless you plan on keeping this external hard drive in one location and don't plan on moving it around, I would not use the case as an external hard drive. The case offers minumal protection for a hard drive.
Overall, this kit is very good.
