4 out of 5 eggsNice case, but...

Pros: Solid metal construction
Accessories included
UASP support

Cons: Installation

Other Thoughts: I bought this case because I needed an external enclosure for an SSD drive I could use to backup and transfer data to another system. I decided to spend the extra $$$ to get one with UASP support, even though I did not have any experience with StarTech previously.

The case is nicely packaged, and comes with everything you would need - screws for the case and drive installation, stick-on feet for the bottom of the case, and a USB 3.0 cable.

My only quibble is the difficulty I had installing the SSD drive. The drive tray slides out easily, but the length of it requires that you either remove the two screws attaching the logic board to the frame, or you bend the end of the tray slightly to get enough clearance to angle the drive into place. This was more of an issue for me, because I wanted to test multiple drives in this enclosure, not just install one and keep it in there. Once the drive is installed, however, the case is easy to put back together.

The best thing about this enclosure is the UASP support - which means please check your system specs first, and make sure it supports UASP before ordering this enclosure! I verified my system (Macbook Pro) did have this support before I pulled the trigger.

I ran some informal tests using this enclosure and a USB 2.0 enclosure. I used an older intel SSD, so I am not sure how these numbers will translate if using a newer drive. I copied an 8GB file from my Macbook Pro to the intel SSD. then ran a checksum on the external copy. With the USB 2.0 enclosure, the copy averaged 3 minutes and 45 seconds, and the checksum 3 minutes exactly. With this enclosure, the copy took 1 minute, and the checksum also took 1 minute. This was far from a scientific test, but it let me know how much speed I could expect from using this enclosure - and the improvement is worth the extra money, in my opinion.
