This review is from: Rexus PST-3 Digital Power Supply Tester with LCD
Pros: Good device.
Cons: No latch indicator on 20/24 pin connector.
Other Thoughts: The supplied printed instructions were O.K., but viewing the PST-3 YouTube videos made a big difference in understanding the various PST-3 connectors and the LCD display.
The 20/24 pin connector does not indicate which is the latch side. Can be confusing the first time inserting a 20-pin connector.
Accidentally bounced the PST-3 off a hard tile floor and it survived with no damage.
Pros: Works as expected.
Cons: Weight, sharp edges.
Other Thoughts: The bulk of the 25AU3 enclosure is a chunk of heavy aluminum "u" channel. The top and bottom edges of my enclosure shows cut marks with somewhat sharp edges.
The protective case fits well, will protect the enclosure from cosmetic scratches, and allows the USB cable to be inserted without removing the enclosure from the case. The case significantly ads to the enclosure bulk when being transported and has no storage for the USB cable.
The USB 3.0 cable supplied with my enclosure is not 3.3ft as described on the Newegg site but approximately 23 inches – still adequate.
The supplied printed User’s Manual did not help me much and I was frustrated trying re-latch the open enclosure after inserting a disk drive. Viewing the ORICO 25AU3 YouTube videos was the only cure.
My disk drive did rattle inside the enclosure. Be careful if you pad the drive to keep it from rattling. When I placed a foam pad to the top of my 320GB drive the drive would not properly seat into the SATA connectors. I had to place the foam pad on the bottom of the disk drive.
No problems so far. Performance is about what is expected for a 2.5” USB 3.0 enclosure. The bright color (mine is red) is attractive. While I prefer the older slightly smaller ORICO 2588US3-BK enclosure with rounded edges I would still recommend this enclosure – especially if the protective case is an attractive option.

Pros: Very small form factor, very light weight; metal case; usable lanyard hole; formats to 57.6 GB. Has a sustained throughput when writing a large file and attached to a USB 3.0 port (Win8.1, i7 processor) at 33 MB/sec.
Cons: No activity indicator light. Gets VERY warm to the touch during sustained writing.READ FULL REVIEW
