Rating: 5/5 Best optical drive case EVER April 24, 2018 4.5 stars, best case I've ever owned for an optical drive.

This case is awesome. Here's what I love: 1. Shock mounts - this case has rubber shock mounts for all 8 side screw mount points. I get NO noise from this box except with track seeks/menu loads. No noise with reads. 2. Rubber feet for sound isolation. Again, dead silent. 3. Short front to back. Most other cases are about an inch longer. Being short makes it take up less valuable desktop real estate. 4. USB 3 - USB 2 is fast enough for Blu-ray 16X drives, but it's nice to have the extra headroom

OK let me get the niggles out of the way: 1. The front bezel is a little thin and bendy, doesn't feel like quality. 2. I'm not sure I like the band of brushed aluminum on top; solid matte aluminum would look better IMO.

All in all, I bought two of them, I love them, I recommend them to anyone who's looking for a case for your full height 5.25" optical drive.

Rating: 5/5 Solid enclosure - good price March 16, 2017 Dropped a spare BluRay burner into it and off I was burning discs. One note, older BluRay drives may be too long to fit this enclosure, I have an LG drive from 2009 that doesn't fit.
