1 out of 5 eggsLook for something else

3 out of 5 eggsYou get what you pay for

Pros: Inexpensive.

Cons: I bought two of these and one was dead on arrival (DOA). NewEgg gave me a replacement after I mailed the bad one back. Neither of the enclosures work using a cheap, no name, un-powered 2.0 hub. I am not sure if this is an issue with the hub or with the enclosures. The enclosures worked fine in a powered USB 2.0 hub (Belkin) and an un-powered USB 3.0 hub (Orico) as well as being plugged directly into my PC.

Other Thoughts: I'm writing the one that I received DOA off as a fluke. You may not be able to use these with a cheap, no-name USB hub. Since the hard drives are powered via the USB ports you may want to use a powered USB hub - or plug it directly into your computer just to be safe.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great for Me

Pros: Durable case and connector.

Cons: Delivery time.

Other Thoughts: I have learned to be careful about whether an item ships from Newegg in the US, or whether is ships from a vendor in China. I have several other enclosures, and I bought two of these. My other enclosure usually fail because they are two-piece units that fall apart, or the connectors fail. The large standard USB connector definitely seems like the better choice.

4 out of 5 eggsDoes what it says it will

Pros: Small, light, professional looking, fast, works as advertised

Cons: Ships from China. Newegg should do a better job of making this clear on product page as they're now representing resellers. Bare aluminum inside case - wrapped HDD in paper before inserting in case to eliminate possibility of electrical shorts.

Other Thoughts: Replaced my laptop 500G HDD with new 240G SSD. Put the old drive in this enclosure, moved all old files into one folder and use the drive as backup for all my documents, pics, etc. using SyncToy on a regular basis. If the SSD fails (doubt it, Intel), I'll just pull the oper. sys files out of the folder, install old drive back in my laptop and I'll be good to go.

1 out of 5 eggsPoor Quality

Pros: Usb 3.0.

Cons: Was defective right out of the box. Because of it being so inexpensive it is not worth pursuing even though I could use it.

Other Thoughts: I will not buy from this manufacturer again.

1 out of 5 eggsNOT OPERATIONAL WITH SANDISK SSD

Pros: Well constructed metal case. Simple disassembly.

Cons: After purchasing this well constructed HD enclosure I installed a SanDisk 120GB SSD and found it to not work and I could not locate detailed specifications confirming that this enclosure did or did not work with SSD components. Unfortunately I must continuing searching for a well built and compatiable USB 3 HD enclosure that will work well with the SSD/

Other Thoughts: Disappointed to receive this enclosure only to find it does not work for me.

5 out of 5 eggsCheap and solid

Pros: The case is really sturdy and the painted black finish seems pretty durable after knocking it around in my bag and migrating users' files to new computers at work. Hard drive installation is really simple and straightforward. The chipset internally is fast and allow my Hitachi DeskStar 2.5" drive to hit 90 MB/s during file transfers. This is great for quickly migrating users' files to new workstations (especially in areas of the company where the network infrastructure is slow/old).

Cons: The little pleather case it comes with is silly and pretty much useless.

There is really no need for a second USB port (for extra power) on the cable as it is a USB3 device. Not to mention that I've never had a single issue with it getting power over even a laptop USB2 port.

Other Thoughts: Overall, it's cheap and decent quality. Obviously I like it for its simple and sturdy (metal) design.

My advice would be to get some thin, one-sided, foam tape and put a couple small squares on the drive before installing it in the case....mine jiggled about quite a bit inside before I did this.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Quality aluminum construction, USB 3.0, status light to show when in use

Cons: No rubber feet (drive slides around when not stationary on a level surface)

Other Thoughts: The cord it came with has a USB 3.0 plug on one end and on the other end has both a 2.0 and 3.0 plug. I just thought this was weird because 3.0 is backwards compatible, but its no reason no to buy this.
