4 out of 5 eggs Sleek and sexy 05/25/2014

This review is from: SABRENT EC-NU25K Aluminum 2.5" Black SATA USB 2.0 External Enclosure

Pros: It is made of metal which should help dissipate heat. It surrounds the drive tightly. It is thin and is contoured so that it feels sleek and sexy. Seems to work OK. I haven't run benchmarks on it, since I don't care because I don't do a lot of moving files back and forth off from it.

Cons: The screws used to assemble the case are VERY small, and the screwdriver provided is lousy (and not magnetized). This makes it relatively difficult to assemble.

Other Thoughts: As I put the drive into it, I invented many new and special words, and thought "I am glad I won't ever need to do this again". But I like the feel of the case so well that I will probably swap the drives between what I put in this case and a better drive that I put into another case that I don't like the feel of nearly as well. Technically both cases are OK, but the overall experience of carrying and using this case is superior.

Vantec NexStar TX 2.5

Pros: Metal enclosure which should dissipate heat. It was relatively easy to install the hard drive, and the screwdriver included was better than most. Seems to work well for its intended use, which was to reuse a left-over laptop hard drive.

Cons: None at this time

Other Thoughts: The enclosure feels big and bulky with squarish corners compared to other enclosures. It is hard to slide it into the cheap leatherette sleeve provided.

Pros: Easy to install the disk drive into the enclosure. Runs relatively fast on its USB3 interface.

Cons: Not my favorite tool less design. Once when I was inserting the USB cord in the front, it pushed the drive back and opened the back as well. This does not harm anything, but now I hold the back as I insert the cable to prevent it from happening again.

Other Thoughts: White plastic feels relatively cheap. Oh wait, it was cheap. I normally like metal cases for heat dissipation, but since I was putting an SSD into it, I didn't think it was necessary in this case.
