Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Cable

Cable:
"if there is a downside (not really) to it, it would be the cable is not your usual USB to micro-USB."
_
"*EDIT*Update on the case, I was contacted by the MFG after posting the review (probably less than 24hrs) and asked to confirm my address, I did and the next day they sent out another case, in this process I uncovered the problem, which was a bad cable, I changed it out for another I had on hand and it worked as expected, I also received the new case and it also works just fine with the OEM cable."
_
"And the inclusion of the cable is appreciated because both ends are the square connector that usually goes into the computer, no thin type B connector like most portable drives have, so you're not going to be able to use cables from other drives."
_
"The good thing about this case is the Standard USB cable (it comes with a cable in the box) rather than the 'mini' style USB cable which tend to be hard to connect due to the very fine USB plug."
_
"- The cable is weird, as it has USB-A connectors at both ends."
_
"I dont think that I can count how many external 2.5'' enclosures that I have owned, but between the USB 3.0 interface, with provided cable, as well as the less seen on of switch, this is a second time purchase that required no time wasted looking at other loookalikes."
_
"The cord was a perfect length for installing next to my Xbox, really didn't want a ton of extra wire to hide."
_
"would have been nice to have a generic cable so losing the cable will not be an issue."
_
"The box also has a 12v power supply to run this, as well as the USB 3 cable needed to transfer data."

_
"I mirrored the drives just in case a drive failed."
_
"This enclosure is not worth the additional cost for the supposed read write speed against other USB 3 enclosures and am not sure of the durability of the plastic case as this will be used as a travel drive."
_
"I was first hesitant to purchase this because others complained about the latches, easily breaking off because the case was plastic."
_
"Got these for $14.99 each, a bargain compared to junk $5 cases."
_
"The case is good."
_
"Great little case and very light."
_
"Works great and the adapter even fits nicely in the case."
_
"In all cases, the drives fit in well and securely."
_
"This external hard drive docking station (enclosure) fits both 2.5 and 3.5 SATA drives and has a tool free and sleek looking case."

Price

Price:
"I reviewed the other drive and you will definately know it is me, I had nothing good to say about that new non working drive with it s cheap built in problem."
_
"I still would not suggest purchasing the new more angular enclosure as I believe it's not the best product in its price range available here."
_
"After having a moderately mediocre experience with a different cheap enclosure, I figured I'd get this one because it has better reviews and the case is more durable...Well, I have three computers that I've tried this on with dedicated USB 3.0 ports:* Asus Zenbook UX302LA (Windows 8.1)* Surface Pro 2 128GB (Windows 8.1)* Dell Precision M4700 (Windows 7 Professional x64)All three suffer from the same issues where, after flipping the ON switch the hard drive will spin up, windows will show the USB icon in the system tray, then the HDD will spin down."
_
"great way to save money on external HD!"
_
"I was skeptical at first due to the price but it has been great so far."
_
"great value for money."
_
"Excellent price for an excellent product."
_
"Its very affordable, and the quality is great."

Speed

Speed:
"Excellent Very easy to use and can change easily between SSD and quicklyIt's fast disadvantages chapter as soon as the clouds or the installation and this has been influenced by the SSD in the future"
_
"I had a SSD that took a performance hit in a motherboard failure."
_
"This enclosure is not worth the additional cost for the supposed read write speed against other USB 3 enclosures and am not sure of the durability of the plastic case as this will be used as a travel drive."
_
"Transfer speeds are poor, but I'm not sure if this is because of USB3 being inconsistent, or the enclosure itself."
_
"I assume the firmware is to correct the disappointing performance."
_
"Very fast transfer speed, especially with an SSD drive, easy to assemble and it seems to be well designed, although only time will tell how durable it is! "
_
"I use a Samsung SSD and run my business VMs and performance is excellent!"
_
"Love that I do not have to compromise on speed!"
_
"Perfect size and operates extremely fast."
_
"Speed over USB 3.0 was great."

Transfer

Transfer:
"Fantastic product to transfer data, backup data and of course make an external HDD out of any 9.5mm 7mm 2.5 HDD."
_
"Very fast transfer speed, especially with an SSD drive, easy to assemble and it seems to be well designed, although only time will tell how durable it is! "
_
"There is no ventilation provided by this enclosure, nor does it transfer heat very efficiently due to being all plastic; however, most 2.5 drive enclosures Ive used dont have any kind of ventilation but are made of aluminum and therefore transfer some heat from the drive."
_
"The box also has a 12v power supply to run this, as well as the USB 3 cable needed to transfer data."
_
"It is very easy to install the hard drive and the transfer speed is very good."
