  • Acceptable function, not exeptional quality

    Pros: Great for gaining some file transfer speed; I get roughly 60 MB/SEC with a out of this little guy. The interface board is quality, the use and assembly is very simple. No extra power supply required. Space effective size. Pretty good, once you manage to get it together.

    Cons: The interface board is superglued to the plastic carrier. This is a serious issue, especially when you recieve a board (like mine) that is off-center in the carrier. Fortunately, my board was turned just little enough to where the drive still functions. The USB SS plug in is pretty tight due to this, and is really at its limit. The case will not protect the drive if it is dropped. The cable is fairly short (about 1 1/2' or a little less than 1/2 meter)

    Other: I would recommend getting a different enclosure for nearly the same cost. This one seems to be working very well now that I got it together (looks fine, feels sturdy now), but you could receive a much poorer quality one than I, that you may not be able to get it together, and require an RMA.

    Pros: There is really no way to beat the price for this casing. Local retail store are going at almost double the price! Changed from a USB2.0 casing to this and I got a 60Mb/s data transfer rate as compare to the 30MB/s I get with the USB2.0

    Cons: The cable that come with it is thicker then the normal USB cable which made it harder to keep since it not as flexible.

    Other: Good stuff at a good price.

    Pros: Solid Build Quality Good Speeds Good Quality USB 3 Cable Included Comes with a Screw Driver for the screws. Comes with a leather poach (although It doesn't really fit) The sata to usb adapter fits easily onto the hard drive.

    Cons: What I dislike is the SATA connector. Be very careful when you connect the hard drive. It seems very weak.

    Other: none.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: What I liked about this product is the USB 3.0 cable. Looks very good quality. With this case, I could reuse an old hard drive from my old laptop. I got speeds from 65 MB / s to 90 MB / s Another positive aspect is that it works with my mini pc Android. Although recognized as a USB 2.0 device

    Cons: The carcass quality is not bad although there are better. What I dislike is the SATA connector. Be very careful when you connect the hard drive. It seems very weak.

    Other: Highly recommended product. I am delighted. I think it's one of the best purchases I've made ??in DX. Good value for money.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Inexpensive with a good complete set, quite strong and accurate, supports USB 3.0 It is completed with a cover from an imitation leather, good thick USB 3.0 a cable and a screw-driver

    Cons: The back plastic wall dangles, the hard drive isn't fixed in the casing by anything, except own connectors, it was necessary to enclose soft gaskets.

    Other: Good, inexpensive "pocket" for 2,5" HDD with USB 3.0 support It is completed with a cover from an imitation leather, a good thick cable and a screw-driver

    posted by Paladinxxx on 10:55:44 G1T 13/01/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: I bought this Hdd encloser to house a 2.5" 120gb sata Hdd that was left over from a broken lap top. I got the unit fast with just the regular shipping and I set it up right away with the Hdd. Plugged it in and it was found by win 7 right away as the drivers were already in the operating system, haven't ran it on any other os so i'm not sure of the support for older windows.

    Cons: Does not support usb 3. I tried it on several windows 7 pc's and it wasn't recognised. My 16gb and 32gb usb 3 memory sticks worked ok on the usb 3 ports so I'm assuming it was a problem with the Hdd case

    Other: if your looking for a usb 3 hdd case i would look into one of the other models sold on DX and pass this one buy

    Pros: * Its build quality is really good, seeming it costed way more than $11. * It's really to insert your HDD into it. * USB 3.0 * The cable that comes with it is pretty strong. *********

    Cons: * The leather pouch allows your HDD Enclosure to easily slide from it onto the floor if you accidentally hold it in a wrong way, so be careful about hold it from the upside up.

    Other: If you really need an HDD enclosure with a USB 3.0 support and a so good build quality, buy it. If you don't, spend you money on something cheaper here on DX.

    Pros: USB-cable included. Screwdriver included. Even has carrying pouch. Also works good, speed is fast and constant.

    Cons: Low-quality build: the screw-holes are not well aligned. Also doesn't provide good physical support for hdd. So you have to be extra careful when handling this.

    Other: For the price this is pretty decent. If you can spare more money, I suggest you get some else enclosure that provides better protection for hdd. But if you don't want to spend lot of money for enclosure, I recommend this one for you.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Solid Build Quality Good Speeds Good Quality USB 3 Cable Included Comes with a Screw Driver for the screws. Comes with a leather poach (although It doesn't really fit) The sata to usb adapter fits easily onto the hard drive.

    Cons: Doesn't appear to support the S.M.A.R.T functions of the hard drives. Screws are very small and good get lost easily.

    Other: I'm happy with the build quality of this unit, it feels very solid and not cheap and flimsy. The one problem I have is that it doesn't pass the S.M.A.R.T data from the hard drives. The USB 3 chip is an IS888 from Innostor. I'm getting 80MBps reading and writing from the Toshiba hard drive I've put in it.
