Hard Disk Drive (HDD) Hard Storage Case

Recently, I have dismantled my Western Digital Elements Desktop 1TB and Western Digital My Book Essential 1TB to remove the hard drives inside as USB2.0 is way too slow for file transfer.

Once I have the internal hard drives, I can use them with my Vantec NexStar SATA/IDE to USB 3.0 Adapter to get better transfer speeds.
