Cons: Price is up $70 bones

Other Thoughts: I am wondering when NASs will start using internal RAMdisks for faster speed.

Pros: This thing works great. I have a Samsung Evo 1TB drive sitting inside, hooked to USB 3. My speeds are as fast as my drives move data internally.

It is svelt, as far as 2.5" external drive casings go.

Cons: None. It's worth $25 bucks over the option of $25 spent on a sata cable and power wart both hooked to the rear of a naked drive.

Other Thoughts: This thing and it's cable has never missed a beat. Is the cable a bit short? Yes--by about 3 inches. Not enough to de-egg it down to two!!

  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This worked so good that I bought another one (at an E-Baysed site for $12.00 cheaper). I deal with either these things only for external SSDs--or I use powered docks for platter drives. Until Thunderbolt for PC replaces USB, this device is as fast as you'll ever get using that particular port.

Cons: Can think of none.
