Orico 2595SUS3-RD Aluminum Alloy Tool-Free 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Nice looking tool-less enclosure. The eSATA performance was good for an external enclosure with a Samsung 840 Pro 256GB:
Sequential Read: 391.942 MB/s
Sequential Write: 381.532 MB/s
The USB 3.0 performance was just average with the same drive:
Sequential Read: 221.476 MB/s
Sequential Write: 216.447 MB/s
I've read that the Asmedia USB 3.0 chipset in the new generation enclosures is much faster. Still, this easily beats all the other enclosures I own.

Cons: Finicky latching mechanism requires some finesse. No bottom feet were included. The USB 3.0 connector is slightly skewed and seems fragile.

Other Thoughts: There's no information about the chipset used in the enclosure at their web site, but they did post some reviews with benchmarks.

SYBA SY-ADA20079 InfoZone SuperSpeed USB 3.0 to SATA III Device Adapter Cable with AC Adapter
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I used this device with one of my Seagate 1TB 3.5" hard disks and it worked well. The 3.5" hard drive did not power up until it was connected to a USB port, even though I connected the power adapter first. My OCZ SSD worked fine without the AC Power Adapter, I just connected it to one of the USB 3.0 ports. I've only had it a short time, but it seems to work as advertised, it's as fast as the USB port's maximum speed for fast devices like my SSD.

Cons: Short USB 3.0 cable.

Other Thoughts: Contrary to what I read in the reviews, it will put the 3.5" drive to "sleep" when left unattended, it wakes when you access it. I benchmarked my Seagate 1TB HDD with HD Tune, using this adapter, and it was as fast as the internal SATA 6G connection on my ASUS motherboard.

Silverstone PCI Express Card w/ USB 3.0 Internal Connector and USB3.0 Front IO ports - Black Model SST-EC03B-P
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast data tranfers within Windows 7. Metal front panel matches my SilverSone case.

Cons: Poor contruction: USB connectors on the front panel are held by a single center screw and the USB connectors move when you plug in a device. The 20-pin header does not seat fully and can fall out of the PCIe card connector on the PCIe card. This card will not boot any of the USB 3.0 devices I have tried, my other systems with built-in USB 3.0 have no problems booting all my USB 3.0 devices. Devices connected to this unit are not visible in BIOS or UEFI motherboards.

Other Thoughts: I have used SilverStone cases in my systems and I was expecting better quality. This card a ppears to a re-branded Teratrend TA03 USB 3.0 PCIe Card. Purchased at another online store.
