Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Cable

Cable:
"It provides great ease of access and doesn't have the issue that other external bays do where the cables come loose or the connection is weak."
_
"USB 3 connector on the enclosure itself was the problem (not the cable, not the SSD)."
_
"While I am rating this 5 stars there are a few caveats:- In my experience, using a USB 3 extension cable causes performance to degrade significantly."
_
"fast easy to install, I like the fact that the cable is attached to the case, less points of failure."
_
"No unnecessary CD, no superfluous and annoying extra power cable Y-cable, no unnecessary Thunderbolt."
_
"The cable being attached already and easily tucked away with the case is really a good quality to have."
_
"None of my USB 3 cables fit securely - all rocked easily back and forth, making the LED light on the drive go off (bad connection)."
_
"My two favorite things about his unit are that I NEVER have look for a cord when pulling this out to use, and it's USB 3 speeds are superior to USB 2.Was the built-in cord worth the $10 premium I paid?"
_
"A very good enclosure and contains all the screws and cables needed."

Case

Case:
"I think this case is a little flimsy but fast if and when it works - problem with it is the board being placed in the case to begin with by the manufacturer, and then having to be removed to fit the drive."
_
"fast easy to install, I like the fact that the cable is attached to the case, less points of failure."
_
"The cable being attached already and easily tucked away with the case is really a good quality to have."
_
"I put the Samsung 850 PRO SSD I bought into a different case, had to recover it, and it has worked perfectly since."
_
"I have other, 3.5 in, USB 3 StarTech cases and this one works great as those do."
_
"Speedy performance; I appreciate the compact case."
_
"In my case, I was able to plug in the bare HDD and SSD drive into a desktop PC and perform the migration process there."

Speed

Speed:
"I have no other problems with this enclosure as it works fine and I successfully performed my first system backup with it last night."
_
"Unfortunately the 4K write performance is a lot less than the speed of non-UASP."
_
"Failing to do so could reduce the performance, lifetime and warning that the SSD it is about to fail."
_
"While I am rating this 5 stars there are a few caveats:- In my experience, using a USB 3 extension cable causes performance to degrade significantly."
_
"I think this case is a little flimsy but fast if and when it works - problem with it is the board being placed in the case to begin with by the manufacturer, and then having to be removed to fit the drive."
_
"The speeds are great and even with the rubber bumper the enclosure keeps a pretty low profile."
_
"very fast and nice design"
_
"Its thin, sleek, light weight and performs fast when using USB 3.0."
_
"Great speeds on a rMBP and Samsung EVO 850."
