5 out of 5 eggsLooks kore expensive than it is

Pros: It shipped in a total of 3 days with the free 5-7 normal business day shipping, good job usps. For those complaining about the usb3.0 not being normal, well the usb3.0 is used for data whilst the other USB is used for power you use brain read the manual. People complain about no padding on the inside, your 2.5in hdd should have a regulation casing that has padding in it by default. Laptops use these these regulation cases instead of installing padding itself, it's better for the hardware. It's small, portable, comes with a nice leather sleve, and it has a nice exterior.

Cons: None, and if you say there are you either retrieved a doa or you're doing something wring.

3 out of 5 eggsGood Performance

Pros: Model S2510BPU33 same with plastic enclosure
Great Performance. A real performer with SS drives

Cons: 14 months Failed to be recognized by any USB Port on any computer(tried 3 different ones), Changed drive inside still get "USB Driver error"
and activity light on drive goes out, Put drive in another enclosure and diagnosed. Drive appears fine. Put new drive in enclosure same results

Other Thoughts: This has been used weekly and only paid 16+ dollars on sale. Not totally dissatisfied with item

2 out of 5 eggsLow speed, device disconnects

Pros: It's small and discreet, the faux leather case is pretty cool

Cons: -No padding for the drive itself inside the enclosure
-Proprietary (non-standard) USB3 cable
-Disconnects from Windows every 20 minutes or so, useless for large transfers
-Low speed, when copying from an healthy internal SATA3 7200RPM drive, I get maybe 50-80MB/s; if I put the drive in my USB3 dock, I get >120MB/s

Other Thoughts: Buy a USB3 hard drive dock instead. They're pretty cool, you can take any internal SATA drive and dock it at full USB3 speed. This thing is garbage!

5 out of 5 eggsSlick case

Pros: Slim, , single LED (white), nice feel, long flexible USB cord. Hard drive will be snug inside. Case is exactly 1/2" thick. Carrying bag is leather imitation (vinyl). Chrome edges have a nice reflective look.

Cons: As said before, zero padding on interior or exterior.

Other Thoughts: The carrying bag is thin, but should protect against scuffs, and should last a while.
