5 out of 5 eggsBest I have found

Pros: Good price and solidly built. I have used a few of these types of enclosures and this is the best so far. Its a great way to re-purpose an laptop internal drive. Also, this case is not meant to be used for multiple drives.

Cons: None so far with the operation. Be aware that there are no instructions on how to install the 2.5" drive, but this should not be a problem for anyone who has installed a drive into a laptop. I found a youtube video on how one fellow did it.

Other Thoughts: You need to take both ends off to install the connector pins and GENTLY and SLOWLY insert the drive into the enclosure. Just take your time.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: I like the size is small and it's aluminum with usb3.

Cons: The only thing that I did not care for is the fact that you must have a screwdriver small enough to fit, because the screwdriver was not included in the package.

4 out of 5 eggsDoes the job

Pros: Easy install once you figure it out.

Worked on the fist try.

Cons: No instructions. A simple sheet explaining where to open the device would be a minimum.

Minus one egg.

Other Thoughts: Save some shipping weight by removing the 3 publicity documents...

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Enclosure

Pros: USB 3.0, UASP support, SATA 3 internal connector, aluminum case to help keep the drive cool, takes power through one USB 3.0 cable.

Cons: Unless it fails, there are none.

Other Thoughts: Can be a tight fit on some drives. Not recommended if you intend to swap drives in and out of this case. This is to put one 2.5" SATA drive in and leave it there. If that's your purpose, this is the one to get.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Does it's job, the outer case is sturdy metal, obviously.

Cons: While the outer shell is indestructible, the electronics are extremely flimsy and you need to remove 2 screws every time you want to get inside the enclosure. Look for a better enclosure with hot-swapping for better usability.

4 out of 5 eggsA good Metal case

Pros: Finally an enclosure that really works. My main concern was with the monitoring light. As everyone knows sometimes windows will lock up your hard drive. And even if you try to safely remove your hard drive, windows still won't let it go. But this enclosure, the light is always active and it will let me know by the flickering if there is any hard drive activity, once is steady I know I can disconnect the hard drive even if windows won't let go. without worrying I might corrupt any files because I disconnected when the hard drive was writing.

Cons: The enclosure itself is very compact. The space inside between the enclosure and the bottom of the hard drive, (where the circuit board is located) is about the thickness of a regular sheet of paper. That's no problem as long you don't force push the metal against the bottom of the hard drive. I mean you would have to push really hard the metal enclosure to create a short circuit in the hard drive or if accidentally you drop it and make a dent on the enclosure. I think eventually I would have to cut a piece of paper and put it in between the inside of the enclosure and the bottom of the hard drive to avoid any accidental short circuit on the drive itself. But so far no problems since the case the aluminum is thick enough so it won't dent or bent easily.

Other Thoughts: The enclosure feels cold to the touch and It feels very solid and although the ends are made of plastic, is not flimsy. is worth paying for them. No issues with USB 3.0 Connection. I have not tried the downloadable backup software.

5 out of 5 eggsTS0GSJ25S3

Pros: Very well made and has a brushed aluminum case. (looks professional) Has a cushion on the inside at the bottom and in the middle inside of case to keep the SSD/Hard Drive snug. Aluminum case keeps the drives cool and quiet. well made plastic ends are both removable to excess the drive. Both of the ends have 2 screws that thread into the aluminum case so they will not strip with frequent removal. Included cord is USB cord measures just under 18" long or 45cm. 3.0 I was very impressed with the quality. Great job as always Transcend!

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I looked for a quality case and this has a thick case that would not dent and is on the heavy duty side. I was very happily surprised with the quality and plug and play of this Transcend TS0GSJ25S3 2.5" SATA USB 3.0 External Enclosure.

4 out of 5 eggsWorked well for an old laptop drive

Pros: I ordered this to enclose a Fujitsu 320 GB SATA HDD that came out of a HP Pavilion dv7 Notebook. The notebook's motherboard had died. It's owner wanted to recover her music and pictures from it. I placed that drive into this enclosure. The drive can now be read by the new laptop she bought. She's happy. (If interested, the drive specs can be found at NewEgg Item # 9SIA67S2KT9165)

Cons: I knocked off a star for two reasons. First, there's not an instruction sheet. Plenty of marketing material for Transcend in the package though. Second, the cable end that plugs into the drive enclosure is not easily replaceable.

Other Thoughts: If possible, color options?

5 out of 5 eggsJust ordered another

Pros: Compact. USB3. Quick assembly. Solid aluminum shell.

Cons: Tight fit, no rubber shock dampers.

Other Thoughts: Mine came with an 18" cable; works for me.

I moved a WD USB2 drive into this enclosure (YMMV, they're not all SATA). New transfer speeds ~50 MB/s read, ~30 MB/s write, a modest improvement. Just ordered another (and a faster 7200rpm HDD) so I can run automatic backups to one and rotate the other off-site.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat product

Pros: Great product, great price and as usual great newegg delivery.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I bought this for my 1TB Samsung 2.5 sata and it fit perfectly and plugged in to my Asus Chromebox was recognized instantly and spun up, i love that it uses usb 5v dc to power and shuts down when the box is shutdown, it also will go to sleep when not in use, as said before the usb cable is kinda short but perfect for my use.

My cable is not 6" but closer to 14", so far this product is a win-win.
