Powered USB Enclosure for 2.5" Laptop HDD


Looking for a USB enclosure for a 2.5" laptop hard drive.

USB 2.0 or 3.0 does not matter.
Do not require backup features, just the basic USB interface.
Should support SATA drives.
Not worried about aesthetics or age, but need a fully functional problem-free device.
Would prefer enclosures that fit both 2.5" and 3.5" drives.
Don't have a budget in mind - totally depends on brand and condition.

P.S. Was originally looking for an externally powered enclosure, and have realised a better option would be to drive it with a powered USB hub instead. So powered is no longer a requirement.

Thank you.

Is this externally powered? Afraid I could only find USB-powered enclosures on ebay.in. Could you please post a link? Thank you.

Thanks for the link. Was looking for something externally powered. If I don't find one, may have to go with the USB-powered ones and use with a powered USB hub instead.

Trust me external power is a headache. USB powered is the best!

And you are welcome

Right. I do realise now that a better option would be to drive it with an external powered USB hub instead. Edited OP to reflect this.

You can go for Transcend that I linked you to.

Note that only 3.5" HDD will need External power. 2.5" all HDD can be powered with USB.

Taken your advise and ordered the one from your Ebay link. Agree it makes a lot more sense, this way. Externally powered cases have their benefits - I've owned one before, but for my purpose now, a USB powered one should just be fine (more so, since I already have a decent powered USB hub). Thanks again.
