-Fast data transfer through USB 3.0 or eSATA
-Powered through USB cable therefore does not require an external power plug

The eSATA cable will transfers data and will not power the hard disk. The drive cannot be accessed through both eSATA and USB 3.0 simultaneously. When both are connected, the computer will recognize and interact with the drive via eSATA connection while the USB cable will only supply power to the disk. It is recommended to connect the USB 2.0 cable as well when transferring large amounts of data to ensure a sufficient amount of power.
Fits the spot, litterally.
This review is from: Satechi Aluminum External Hard Disk Enclosure USB 3.0 & eSATA, Case for 9.5mm & 12.5mm 2.5" SATA-I, SATA-II, SATA-III HDD & SSD
Pros: Small, well built, priced about right... Works out of the box and USB3 is faaaast! I use this drive for gaming and hooked to my newly built gaming rig, I can play todays games without lag.
Cons: To this date I have found no major problems.
Other Thoughts: One thing I would caution is take your time installing your SSD in the case. Due to the way its constructed I can see where the lock might not be closed. This is a very minor thing and once someone knows about it, should not have any problems with this.
