4.0 out of 5 stars A Different Perspective
By Trent on May 20, 2017
The case is all black with no Amazon marks execpt on the zipper which I think is perfect. The bright interior makes it easy to see where all my things are. A lot of people use this to carry portable hard drive but I use it as what I call a phone safety kit I put a USB C cable (3ft) micro USB (3.3ft) charging block (Apple's) 2 small otg adapters and 2 bands. Everything fits nice and snug with a little extra room. I do this so I just remember to bring one thing so I know I can't charge my phone and headphones when i know I'll but out for a while. Only problem is the dimensions are a little awkward in that I can't fit my portable charger so I'll still need to remember to walk with that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect size and quality!
By M. Savard on January 15, 2018
Exactly what I was looking for. I've tried ORICO, but was deceived by the size and quality. AmazonBasics offer good quality stuff and this product is not an exception.

At first, I hesitated because of the ugly orange color. But from the outside, it's a beautiful, solid, right size case :)

Just be careful removing the tag and it will look nice.

I got 2 for my Seagate Backup Plus 5TB portable drives.

3.0 out of 5 stars 注意!トランセンドのHDDは入りません
Reviewed in Japan on August 29, 2020
カスタマーレビューでトランセンドの1TBがぎりぎり入るとのことで購入したのですが、開封してみると思ったより小さく、嫌な予感が的中で写真の通りとなりました。
後から商品詳細を確認すると、内寸12x9x2cmとあり、このHDDが129.5x80.8x16.1mmのため、ギリギリアウトということが判明。
内寸の確認を怠った自分に非があるので低評価はしませんが、あのカスタマーレビューには星1つを差し上げたいです...

Product Description: ***** Received as described
Packing: ***** very good
Material: ***** Polyester covered hard case
Value for money: *** Could have been much cheaper

Box contains:
✅ Hard disk portable carrying case for 2.5" external hard disk drive
✅ Dimensions(LxB): 5.6"x 4.3"

Pros:
 • Compact case
 • Interior strap and zippered closure
 • Internal mesh pocket conveniently stores power cords

Cons:
No cushion inside the pouch

I was looking for a simple case that could hold a small hard drive.
Also to keep the cable with a hard drive as well as prevent small jerks and scratches.
Although this case does not provide significant padding/protection from drops, use it carefully.

I would not trust this case to stop damage to the hard drive from water or being banged around here and there.
I handle my hard disk carefully as I am using it to take backup and put it back in the closet. So this was a perfect fit for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Affordable, And Very Practical
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on June 14, 2013
The AmazonBasics range is a series of products for every day items you use, which make them simpler to use, or just essentials like cases, stylus' or media. They're made to be frustration free, and easy for the end user to pick up and use. This case is both easy to use, and easy to open when you get it from your delivery outlet.

Straight from the post man, this case came in a usual Amazon package you'd get DVDs and books in. Inside the cardboard surround was a white bag, and inside that was a clear plastic bag protecting the case. It was all very easy to shed from, and I had access to the case within minutes.

The case is black and rather sturdy, it has a nice velvet touch to it, and has a smart Amazon Basics tag on the zip. Inside- we have Amazon's orange to store our precious drive in. One side just has an elasticated strap, the other a mesh. In the mesh, I put the USB cable, in the other part, the drive sits nicely and smugly. I have two cases, one for a WD Studio (Mac) and another for a 2TB drive, which is a lot bigger than this Studio. The both fit in nicely and stop the drive moving in transit.

One of the things I found about this is if you hit it, it makes a vibration, like it is balancing out the shake, of course I did this with no hard drive in the case, but it is good to know there is some safety measures put into this.

At under a tenner - this is very reasonable and very good value for money. Most of the cases I had before were under £20, and were nowhere as protected as this. This is yet another fine product from Amazon - it may be basic, but it's just what I needed for the drive, and will hopefully be using this for years to come.

An essential if you buy any pocket drive, no matter where you get it from.
