5 out of 5 eggsgood quality

Pros: Very sturdy. I don't worry walking around with it in my laptop bag. Physical port seems attached well to board. SATA speeds via USB 3.0 at its price and quality makes reusing laptop drives from SSD swaps a no brainer.

Cons: It may freak out one day but I have been using for over a year without issue.

Other Thoughts: Recommended product.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome product, great price!

Pros: The HDD screws down to the enclosure which was a big deal for us. We have purchased hundreds of these enclosures and haven't had a single problem yet.

Cons: We have purchased hundreds of these enclosures and haven't had a single problem yet.

Other Thoughts: This is the enclosure you want! Great product, great price!

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Looks Good

Cons: DOA Computer recognizes the unit gives it a letter but not the drive. Tried two known working drives.

1 out of 5 eggsPoor quality solders

Pros: Works great when the solders don't fail.

Cons: Very poor quality solder construction on the USB power jack. Mobile techs beware of this thing as it is a very weak component of this enclosure. I have owned it only 2 months and the jack broke and is unfixable as the power solders are very small.

1 out of 5 eggsUSB connector fell off

Pros: Worked for a little while

Cons: The usb connector came completely off the board after perhaps 3 plugging/unpluggings. There was no undo force used at any time and the enclosure we itself enclosed and protected against stress. It is just a lousy connector attachment.

5 out of 5 eggsbest cheap option; has paid off

Pros: - The black top and bottom are metal with some rubberized coating that feels nice. When the drive is off they feel cool to the touch like metal which might be good for heat dissipation. But the sides are plastic painted silver and don't feel cool to the touch.
- Assembly was fine, although I was glad to have the comments here. Also took a second to realize my drive could go deeper onto the SATA connector.
- Swapping is harder with 8 screws, but I much prefer this to cases where the SATA connector is the only thing holding the drive in place.
- Have only tested in a USB 3.0 slot so far.
- Did not need to reformat drive like another reviewer.
- Not much of a test, but wrote a ~30 MB file in half a second, looks good.
- The case fits and seems like it will prevent scratches. Additionally, the enclosure slides around a bit too easily for comfort on my desk, but not on the flattened case on my desk.
- The brand name is silly but the logo font obscures it and looks okay. Or black tape covers it easily.
- This is the only USB 3.0 2.5" enclosure I could find anywhere under $50 with a DOA/1-star rate under 10%. It's also hard to find ones with good data rate info in user reviews. This one has definitely paid off for me so far.
- It's quite portable in size and weight. There are smaller alternatives, but they seem less protective or don't even screw the drive down to the chassis.
- I was able to fit an old laptop drive caddy in with the drive too, which might provide more heatsink (probably useful with these cheaper enclosures), and there's slightly less work for me to swap this into my laptop as needed.

Cons: - Plastic sides might be bad for heat dissipation.

2 out of 5 eggsNot Aluminum

Pros: USB 3.0

Cons: The black covers are aluminum. The chassis is Not Aluminum but silver painted plastic.
The curved corners makes this unit much larger than it needs to be.

Other Thoughts: Disappointed
