5 out of 5 eggsQuality and affordable

Pros: 1. USB 3.0 (Asmedia controller!)
2. Very nice quality cable and SATA/USB 3.0 adapter module. Feels very solid and the connections are solid and secure.
3. No random disconnect issues so far. I have experienced nothing but 100% reliability.
4. Actual enclosure is truly skim milk white...letting you see right through to the device inside.
5. Accepts 2.5" drives up to 9.5mm Z-height. This pretty much covers all current 2.5" devices out there.

Cons: 1. Wish they offered this case in different colors. Milky white is very...well...milky looking.
2. No spacer provided for 7 mm Z-height devices.

Other Thoughts: For anyone that may complain about the cable length...INEO obviously is making sure that the signal and power integrity is 100% for slightly higher power drain devices like WD Scorpio Black drives, etc. Although this enclosure is backwards compatible with USB 2.0, be sure that you don't actually need the juice provided by a USB 3.0 port before you try to plug your chosen device into a USB 2.0 port!

2 out of 5 eggsPrevious model

Pros: Easy to use, my model came with a permanently attached cable. Easy to use. Fast when it worked. I am trying one of these with the detachable cable and hope it lasts longer than the first model did. I'll come back after I RMA the one I have, and see if it lasts.

Cons: Shorted out after only ten uses in six months. Made my Dell XPS 2720 do an immediate shut down. I tried it in another computer with USB 3 and it acted funny too but did not shut down. It could not find it. The hard drive I had attached seems to be OK as I had an Apricorn drive wire I used to copy it. My computer is giving me some start up issues now thank goodness it is in warranty. Don't know if there is any damage or not due to it detouring to do drive repairs every other boot up now. It is in warranty too. Hope it is something we can fix on the phone.

Other Thoughts: I hope this model with the removable USB 3 cable works better than this one. They have good customer service as far as being polite, but they only pay shipping back for their defective items, no prepaid shipping label to return them. When I objected the lady said very nicely it doesn't cost much to return as it is small. I decided not to say that is even more reason for the company to pay postage both ways. All other companies that I deal with more than once have covered postage both ways for the few DOA or defective items of the hundreds I have ordered online. I am not going to eat it, if I have to pay postage they will too and supply a working item. I have had issues with two other USB 3 drive dock vendors. I am sticking with my new Thermaltake USB 3 drive docks from now on. I have had an Orico USB 3 drive dock fail with my previous desktop, and before that a brand I can't remember also failed and gave strange behaviors. The exceptions have been all my USB 3 Thumb drives, my "My passport" 1TB USB 3 external drive, and my USB 3 Apricorn Drive wire, and all my Thermaltake docks. My Thermaltake USB 2 docks are still in use from five years ago. I keep one for my USB 2 Windows tablets from last year. Everything else is USB 3.
I never had the issues with USB 2 devices that some USB 3 devices have had. All my computers have the latest drivers, and with the exception of these three brands

5 out of 5 eggsdoes what it says; nothing more, nothing less.

Pros: upgraded to an ssd, wanted to use old hard drive as an occasional backup device. this product worked like a charm for exactly that purpose, at a fraction of what a 'more standard' hard drive enclosure would cost.

Cons: none.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: * Small
* Compact
* Fast Transfers

Cons: * Gets hot
* No real way for the hard drive to vent heat from the case
* I know this is advertised for 2.5 drives, but I was hopeful to use it with both 2.5 and 3.5 drives. It does not put out enough power for a 3.5 drive, I even purchased a Y cable, it still doesn't work with a 3.5 drive using a Y cable.

5 out of 5 eggsMy new fav case

Pros: Ideal for people who want to swap hard drives.

Consists of a small rectangular SATA to USB3 adapter, a cable and a translucent case that holds the disk and adapter.

You just plug the rectangular adapter on to the hd sata data/power then drop the whole thing into the case and snap it shut.

Cons: Won't win any beauty contests. (You can see the disk and read the label through the case.)

No ventilation.

May encourage people to swap their hard disks. The connectors are not really made for repeated connections/removal on any had disk.

I would be leery of any application where there is significant external disk activity. Consider an aluminum case for improved heat radiation or an actively cooled external disk case.

Other Thoughts: I don't bother with benchmarks, too many variables.
This Ineo outperformed a competitor's (K***win) usb3 case that had a faster hard drive in it (compared to the 4200 disk in the Ineo) while performing Windows backup.

The key component is the little controller chip usually located on a tiny pcb near the hard drive sata connectors. The better the controller the more reliable the drive and affects what capacity of hard drives can be connected.
