ORICO 2588US3-BK Tool Free USB 3.0 External Hard Drive Enclosure for 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Easy to install.
Works with Xbox One instant-on game resume

Cons: When used with an SSD on Windows, I am seeing only USB2 transfer rates (30-40MB/s). With a different enclosure, same SSD, around 250MB/s. For OS X, transfer rates are around 200 MB/s, better than Windows, but far from the 400MB/s I get with another enclosure using the same SSD.

1 out of 5 eggs Unreliable - died after 6 months 02/20/2016

This review is from: WD Elements 4TB USB 3.0 External Hard Drive WDBWLG0040HBK-NESN Black

Pros: None that I can think of.

Cons: For me, this was a very unreliable HDD. It died after 6 months of light usage and I can therefore not recommend it.

Other Thoughts: Out of my three USB 3.0 external HDDs, two have died within less than a year, one Seagate and one WD. Out of my 5 or 6 eSATA drives of various brands, none have died. Strange.
