2 out of 5 eggsdisappointing SATA-USB chipset

This review is from: Orico 2598US3-BK Tool-Free Aluminum 2.5" USB 3.0 to SATA Hard Drive HDD External Enclosure

Pros: works. inexpensive

Cons: we did not realize that when paired with an SSD, this enclosure is the weak link since the chipset does not truly support SATA III. we could get no better than half the rated speeds for the SSD.

Other Thoughts: wish that specs for enclosures included maximum speeds supported by chipsets.

3 out of 5 eggsDisapponting speed limits

This review is from: Orico 2598US3-BK Tool-Free Aluminum 2.5" USB 3.0 to SATA Hard Drive HDD External Enclosure

Pros: everything works as advertised,

Cons: the chipset used for the SATA to USB controller limits the SSD to no more than 300Mps. took a bit of research to discover that unless the chipset is rated specifically for SATA III, speed will be limited to SATA II. regret that enclosure specs do not give better information on the speed potential for the chipsets

Other Thoughts: wish that enclosure specs gave more info on speed ratings

3 out of 5 eggsDisappointing SATA-USB chipset

This review is from: Orico 2598US3-BK Tool-Free Aluminum 2.5" USB 3.0 to SATA Hard Drive HDD External Enclosure

Pros: Works. Inexpensive.

Cons: we were not aware of the importance of checking the chipset when pairing this enclosure with a SSD. Wish that it was more obvious what true speeds are when specs are presented.

2 out of 5 eggsDisappointing SATA-USB chipset

This review is from: Orico 2598US3-BK Tool-Free Aluminum 2.5" USB 3.0 to SATA Hard Drive HDD External Enclosure

Pros: Works. Price.

Cons: Teamed enclosure with Crucial M500 SSD, advertising 250 write/ 500 read speeds. Black Magic reports 250 read and write. apparently, ASM 2105 chip is only able to handle SATA II, so 300MP/s is max speed, effectively crippling the SSD. at this point, no one is reporting the ability to upgrade firmware. very disappointed that this enclosure is the weak link.

Other Thoughts: regret that specs for enclosures never mention the SATA to USB chipset issues that cripple performance.

4 out of 5 eggsNot disappointed

This review is from: Orico 2598US3-BK Tool-Free Aluminum 2.5" USB 3.0 to SATA Hard Drive HDD External Enclosure

Pros: Compact, Fast, relatively sturdy.

Cons: Poor latch.

Other Thoughts: I listed poor latch under cons. The latch does work, but you have to fiddle with it sometimes to get it open. I can see a few years down the road after use it *might* break, but would not affect the operation of the unit. I bought this to re-use my hard drive out of a broken laptop. Backed up my new laptop with the USB3 really fast. I would re-buy this product and will recommend it to friends.
