Sharp looking, speedy
Pros: I purchased two of these to use with a SSD and a 7200rpm drive from an older laptop. With OSX and journaling turned off, I ran Black Magic Speed Test, and got around 75mb/sec write, 135mb/sec read. I haven't seen better with USB3.0.
Cons: It's a sharp piece of metal, with nothing on the bottom to keep it in place. I'll have to attach some rubber feet or equivalent to keep the device from sliding all over my desk. The metal is sharp aluminum, so I'll need to put something between it and my desk to avoid scratches. This didn't come with a case, a simple cloth case would have been a nice touch.
Other Thoughts: I like the screw-less design. It's simple, and performs well.
