1 out of 5 eggsNo support for dynamic disks

Pros: Nice, lightweight USB3 enclosure.

Cons: The software does NOT support dynamic disks (GPT). I called their technical support and the guy stated: "This is very simple software and it does not support dynamic disks." This prevents migrating partitions from UEFI boot disks, i.e. recent Windows7 and all Windows8 boot disks.

Other Thoughts: Works well as a USB3 enclosure for 2.5 inch HDD, however forget migrating HD to SSD if your HD is dynamic.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little box

Pros: It's a box. Allows you to use an external power supply if you need it.

Cons: Does not come with the optional external power supply, but most drives this size won't need it anyway.

Other Thoughts: To the user mentioned the "proprietary" cable - it's not proprietary. This is a standard USB 3.0 cable that's identical to my external USB 3 flash card reader and my external USB 3 hard drive I have from another manufacturer. Nothing special about it.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: Used this bad boy to image my 500gb hdd on my lenovo w520 to a crucial m4. I had no problems.

Cons: None other than it uses proprietary cable, but that's neither here nor there.

Other Thoughts: One of the hidden partitions (recovery maybe) was resized/shrunk down during the process but I didn't really care.

5 out of 5 eggsJust what I needed

Pros: Solid hardware and easy to use software

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Took me 45 minutes to cloan my hard drive over to it(would have been faster but I don't have USB3 on my laptop). I have used their hardware/software for years and have never disappointed.

3 out of 5 eggsGood but...

Pros: USB power, no AC adapter required.
Form, fit, function as advertised.
Price is reasonable I think...

Cons: EZ Gig software has known bug conflict, cannot clone mobile HDD.
Apricorn tech support helpful only to redirect to other third-party backup/clone software, "been working on software bug fix for months".

Other Thoughts: Still like the hardware design and form factor. Well made and robust, even for external USB "backup" drive. Still worth the money.

4 out of 5 eggsAs advertised

Pros: Works flawlessly and as advertised.

Cons: The software only works with this hardware. I dinged them one egg for this limitation.

5 out of 5 eggsSo simple...

Pros: Ease of use, cost

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I needed to upgrade my laptop's 128 SSD to something bigger for all my installed apps and files. I looked around for something that would clone the incumbent disk - so avoiding having to reinstall an OS and all my installed programs - and found this Apricorn upgrade kit.

I purchased the kit along with a Crucial M4 256GB SSD. After plugging the new disk into the chassis and downloading Apricorn's EZGIG cloning software I was able to set up and execute a disk clone with (literally) 3 clicks. The partition resizing was an option in EZGIG so I let that take care of it for me. The entire process (to clone ~65GB of OS and installed apps) took less than 35 minutes. I was able to continue using my laptop while this went on. Once complete, I simply swapped the old SSD out for the new one and booted straight into Windows. I had to restart once (partition resizing) but I am now using all my old programs without any problems.

Less than 45 minutes to clone and install a new disk = win
