5 out of 5 eggsVery Nice

This review is from: ORICO Ultra Slim 2.5-Inch SATA to USB 3.0 External Aluminum Screwless Hard Drive Enclosure with Sleeve - Orange

Pros: Looks great, no fasteners, easy to use, robust case

Cons: cons are required for the review, if coulee be a little better made, but it's not an issue

Other Thoughts: I learned you can't set up a Mac HD in OS 10.5 over USB 3, I thought if might be this box, so I tried another, same problem. I really like how rugged it is too.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

This review is from: ORICO Ultra Slim 2.5-Inch SATA to USB 3.0 External Aluminum Screwless Hard Drive Enclosure with Sleeve - Orange

Pros: Bought for a customer not myself. The customer was happy with the looks. It's been a few months and I haven't heard back so I assume it's still working fine.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsDoes what it says, works as expected

This review is from: ORICO Ultra Slim 2.5-Inch SATA to USB 3.0 External Aluminum Screwless Hard Drive Enclosure with Sleeve - Orange

Pros: Popped in a SATA hard drive and I was off and running. No driver issues, very quick read / write speeds with the appropriate drive and connected via USB3.0

Cons: The Plasti-Leather case thing is kinda dippy.

Other Thoughts: Ditch the Plasti-Leather case and you've got a pretty sweet looking brushed aluminum, USB3.0, portable Harddrive on the cheap.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat enclosure

This review is from: ORICO Ultra Slim 2.5-Inch SATA to USB 3.0 External Aluminum Screwless Hard Drive Enclosure with Sleeve - Orange

Pros: Very well built, fast read/write speed. I have read several complaints about installing the drive being difficult. I found installation to be a breeze! A WD 9.5mm drive slides in nicely. If it does not go into the connector easily, you need to tilt the enclosure to line up the connections. Same for connecting the USB cable, if it doesn't go easily, look closely and line it up better. The slide lock for the "door" HAS to be pushed in to lock and unlock, and when done right it works easily too.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: It does require a little mechanical skill to easily install a drive, but less skill and work than operating a screwdriver on other enclosures. Swapping drives is also easy and quick!

4 out of 5 eggsBuilt tough

This review is from: ORICO Ultra Slim 2.5-Inch SATA to USB 3.0 External Aluminum Screwless Hard Drive Enclosure with Sleeve - Orange

Pros: Very well built, with metal case. Fast read and write speeds.

Cons: Very heavy, with sharp metal edges.

Other Thoughts: If your looking for a compact device to put your files on for a trip this isn't a good option. It's heavy!

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

This review is from: ORICO Ultra Slim 2.5-Inch SATA to USB 3.0 External Aluminum Screwless Hard Drive Enclosure with Sleeve - Orange

Pros: Great and easy to use setup. All you have to do is plug in your 2.5" and go. I was surprised by how easy it was to use. It's got a locking mechanism when you close it that locks the hard drive in place and the same mechanism pops it out for you when you open the case.

Cons: None that I know of yet.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as expected

This review is from: ORICO Ultra Slim 2.5-Inch SATA to USB 3.0 External Aluminum Screwless Hard Drive Enclosure with Sleeve - Orange

Pros: USB 3.0, Ease of use, Screwless Design

Cons: Clip for locking case closed hard to catch at times

Other Thoughts: This is a hard drive encloseure, nothing less and nothing more. It allows you to convert a 2.5" SATA drive into a USB 3.0 external drive. It does this very well. I'd certainly recommend it to someone looking to convert that old laptop HDD into an external.

5 out of 5 eggsGood enclosure for a price

This review is from: ORICO Ultra Slim 2.5-Inch SATA to USB 3.0 External Aluminum Screwless Hard Drive Enclosure with Sleeve - Orange

Pros: Looks and works very well. Easy hard drive exchange. Feels pretty solid. HDD doesn't shake inside, Gets little warm when used with traditional HDD, With SSD it's fine. Overall its a good enclosure for a price.

Cons: only one little concern, it was a little bit scratched on one side, well it will get more scratches soon but it would be nice to have it in pristine condition from the beginning.
