Installation:
Installation was very quick and easy, it's definitely something that anyone can do. I chose to install the drive in a 5.25" bay because I had a few spare ones on my case. I encountered no problems during installation.

Mounting the drive inside the enclosure was also very simple and straightforward. I like the way this enclosure uses two small screws to secure it shut instead of the latching system which I found to be problematic on the NexStar SX. I had the drive completely installed in the case in a matter of minutes!

Conclusion:
For anyone who does a lot of file transfer using 2.5" external drives, then the EZ Swap EX is definitely a must have. The ability to dock it into your primary computer system adds a whole new level of ease and speed when transfering to removable drives. On the go, you can easily connect it to any computer using USB or E-SATA. I can't forget to mention the included carrying pouch which will easily hold everything you need on the go with this drive!

Pros:
Secure drive case (held shut by screws)
Dock system is a great idea
Dock support both 3.5" and 5.25" drive bays
Included cable bundle gives you everything you'd need no matter how you chose to run the drive

Cons:
Including a small screw driver like we saw with the NexStar SX would be a nice extra touch
