Top critical review
Not what I expected, in terms of padding.
Reviewed in the United States on August 20, 2019
While I am VERY careful with my external hard-drives I guess sooner or later the inevitable is bound to happen, and about a week ago it did. While I try to be very conscientious about keeping things backed up I'm sure I probably lost some of the very latest files. I began shopping for another Western Digital external drive to replace the one I lost and in the meantime decided to get a few hardcases to protect the drive in the case of a recurrence. I purchased the AmazonBasics Small Hard Shell Carrying Case...matter of fact, I purchased two.
If you're looking for a hard case which might protect your drive in case of an accidental drop - this isn't it !!! Let me repeat again, with gusto - THIS ISN'T IT !!!!
There is absolutely ZERO padding, as in none, '0', nada. I couldn't believe it, I mean, I don't understand how you advertise a hardshell carrying case which doesn't have one stitch of padding. If I'm not mistaken the image used for advertising is with the case closed; OK, cool - I just wasn't able to SEE the inside padding. Big mistake - there was none !!! Even as I type this review I'm looking at various Lacdo case - which are illustrated 'Open', by the way - and they are illustrating exactly the sort of eggshell padding I was expecting to find in this AmazonBasics Small Hard Shell Carrying Case. 'Yes', you say, 'I understand, but I can just buy/cut-up my own eggshell padding....' True, but by the time you do all of that you might as well spend the additional $2. - $3. and go with another brand of case that already comes provided with protective padding. A true disappointment and the longer I spend on this review the madder I'm becoming. Bottom-line ? Don't buy (unless, you're looking for a weekend crafts project).
