5 out of 5 eggsMore Useful Than You Think

This review is from: ORICO 2588US3-BK Tool Free USB 3.0 External Hard Drive Enclosure for 2.5" SATA HDD and SSD – Black

Pros: This is a small inexpensive enclosure for a 2.5 HD. I used it initially with a HD from a dead laptop and then bought a 1T Toshiba HD to use it for data storage. As such it compares well to the retail Western Digital External Portable Drive I have. It has a USB 3 plug but it does come with an approximately 18" long cable. There are several solutions that are cables with interface if you need a temporary means of connecting a 2.5 HD to a computer. However this is 1) cheaper 2) portable to permanent in use and the drive is protected 3) can be switched out to a new HD if needed . The data indicates that the max size it will read is 1T.

Cons: Orico offers several colors for these units and sometimes there can be a difference in price. As a result, I have bought both Black and Silver units. However, the color is only on the bottom, not the complete unit. So if you have one on your desk, it is going to look black anyway.

Other Thoughts: It's cheap enough and seems to work. You could pay more for just the USB 3 cable.

4 out of 5 eggsGood for HDD not so much for SSD

This review is from: ORICO 2588US3-BK Tool Free USB 3.0 External Hard Drive Enclosure for 2.5" SATA HDD and SSD – Black

Pros: I have four of these (with different colors, which I like). They are wonderful tor quick and easy inserting or removing of the drive. They are fast, and every regular 2.5" hard drive I have used has been recognized (caveat - I have not tried more than 1 Tb). The cord is short, but that is because it is supplying both power and the ability for data transfer.

Cons: While regular HDDs worked without any issues, the SSDs don't. I have three different brands - Crucial, OCX and a Samsung EVO that I tested (250Gb and 500Gb). I also tested them in each of the four enclosures. I tried with my laptop, desktop and plug-in USB ports (making sure the port I was using as powered). It will look as if the drive was recognized but then the connection would drop. With my desktop computer, the drop not only stopped any copying, but froze the entire computer as it kept trying to reconnect.

Other Thoughts: If you want this for a regular HDD - go for it. They are convenient and work great. If you are looking for an enclosure for your SSD - avoid like the plague.

5 out of 5 eggsEasy to Install and 2TB Drive Works Too

This review is from: ORICO 2588US3-BK Tool Free USB 3.0 External Hard Drive Enclosure for 2.5" SATA HDD and SSD – Black

Pros: - easy to install the drive: just slide off to cover, insert the drive, replace the cover, and plug it into your USB.

- Windows 10 found it immediately

- Although description says up to 1TB, I put in a SAMSUNG Spinpoint M9T ST2000LM003 2TB and it worked just fine.

Cons: - at first the cable got stuck in the unit, but now its ok.

Other Thoughts: - because of negative comments, I originally bought only one of these to try, but after everything worked first time, with no problems (and 2TB disk too), I ordered two more.

- if the cable does become a problem (as some have commented), I'll just use my WD Passport cable instead.

- I generally have had good experience with ORICO products.

1 out of 5 eggsWow. I don't think so!

This review is from: ORICO 2588US3-BK Tool Free USB 3.0 External Hard Drive Enclosure for 2.5" SATA HDD and SSD – Black

Pros: Price. That's it.

Cons: Cheap plastic. No instructions. I stared at it for 15-20 minutes trying to figure out how to open it. No joy. Went to Orico's web page. No joy. Finally figured out how to open it and put the drive in. Would not close properly at that point. Would not partition or format. Threw Windows 10 Disk Manager in to a tizzy. Buyer beware!

Other Thoughts: Not worth the cost of shipping it back. I would have been better off burning my $7.00

5 out of 5 eggsGreat HDD enclosure

This review is from: ORICO 2588US3-BK Tool Free USB 3.0 External Hard Drive Enclosure for 2.5" SATA HDD and SSD – Black

Pros: Perfect place to put your old HDD from your laptop after you upgrade to a SDD or the old HDD from a PS3/PS4 upgrade.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this hard drive enclosure to someone who has just upgraded their PS3/PS4 HDD for a larger HDD or to someone who upgraded their laptop to a SDD, so they can have a handy external hard drive.

1 out of 5 eggsWorthless

This review is from: ORICO 2588US3-BK Tool Free USB 3.0 External Hard Drive Enclosure for 2.5" SATA HDD and SSD – Black

Pros: Feels Rugged

Cons: I have yet to have a HDD actually spin in this enclosure. I plug it in a USB port, and a pretty light comes on, but nothing is happening.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy this, it's garbage

1 out of 5 eggsOrdered 3, first day 2/3 is defective!

This review is from: ORICO 2588US3-BK Tool Free USB 3.0 External Hard Drive Enclosure for 2.5" SATA HDD and SSD – Black

Pros: The 1 of the 3 works well so the question is do you feel lucky?

Cons: 2 out of the 3 keeps disconnecting within 15 minutes. Changed the cord, swapped hard drives, changed USB ports. Makes no difference. Products they ship are defective. I wonder how long my only working one will hold up.

Other Thoughts: Do no recommend at all unless you are a gambling person.

Manufacturer Response:
