5 out of 5 eggsGreat! Most solid external enclosure I've ever owned!

Pros: -Very well made case
-Extremely solid
-Everything is bolted down very well
-Materials are very good
-Aluminum shell with rubber stick on feet (already applied)/Inner casing is good plastic and is slightly recessed)
-USB 3.0
-Extremely well made cable (very thick & short which is nice for a laptop)

Cons: -A lot to disassemble to change drives (rare but a bit of a pain if needed)
-Nothing else - it's a tank

Other Thoughts: I noticed the one egg review on this item while shopping for my second of these. I realized the user made an error when installing their drive (they mentioned it bent the board/connector). There are two external screws and 6 internal screws that must be removed to correctly install the drive. The user apparently removed only 2 of the 6 screws. This drive is excellent and one of my all time favorites. I have owned many including the dreaded kingwin cases and this is about as good as it gets in external cases for the money. Well done Patriot.

1 out of 5 eggsThis is a poorly made enclosure

Pros: The price is low

Cons: Unfortunately, you get what you pay for.

Due to the design, it is difficult to insert the drive into the tray without bending the controller PCB. It is even more difficult to remove the drive.

The USB 3.0 cable is only 18" - too short and not flexible at all. You will likely be forced to use a different cable.

The micro USB 3.0 connector is poorly made, and didn't make good contact with the bundled cable from day 1.
The drive connection to the computer frequently is lost as a result.

Since there is no power switch, you are forced to plug/unplug it frequently, which leads to quick wear-and-tear on the poor quality connector and cable.

Manufacturer Response:
