Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Cable

Cable:
"I tried additional USB cables thinking maybe that could be the problem."
_
"One other hiccup is the cord."
_
"Its hard to find that size of cable anywhere so its a plus that its included! "
_
")The enclosure (with the SSD installed) is even light enough that you can carry around your laptop with the ZTC Skyboard attached to a USB3.0 port (with the short white USB3.0 cable dongle) without much fear that the enclosure might detach from the cable and fall to the ground (although I don't recommend doing this just in case it might."
_
"Worst, at least on mine, the USB 3 cable does not plug straight in, but at a slight (10 - 15 degree) angle from the metallic (logo side) top of the case."
_
"(I used Macrium's Reflect backup software to clone the drive)Pros:- Ligthweight and small (even with mSATA drive installed)- USB 3 for speed- Comes with a USB 3 cable- Worked without any drivers (tested on Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 laptops as well as with an OTG adapter on an Android tablet).- Works with USB 2 cables and or portsCons:- None so farNote:- USB 3 cable is short - not a problem for my purposes, and because this is so light, you could leave the drive hanging mid-air a computer and not have to worry about it pulling out or straining the port."
_
"FYI, it also comes with its own USB 3.0 cable (~6inches), so thats nice."
_
"Only thing I would have liked is USB 3.1 with Type C port and therefore a nice small and flat cable."
_
"I will have a super fast high capacity USB 3.0 thumb drive, It is just a bit larger than a thumb drive and you do have a cable to deal with unlike thumb drives, but that can be a good thing for two reasons, in case you are tight for space around your USB 3.0 connections and thumb drives do not have the capacity or anywhere near the read write speeds of newer SSD's."
_
"It has a nice good weight that the thin USB cable it came with don't over powers it by flipping it over."

Case

Case:
"I was worries about the complaints that this unit would overheat but not in my case."
_
"It may not be easy to open the case, but it's not that difficult either."
_
"I am thinking about using some of the thermal pads I have to try and cool it as part of the enclosure is metal, making sure the SSD has contact with the outside of the case might help this problem, I will have to wait and see."
_

"a little hard to open but is a great little hard case does gt hot when you use the drive"
_
"Good but very hard to open the case."
_
"My Samsung EVO mSata SSD drive fit perfectly and the case went back together easily."
_
"I will have a super fast high capacity USB 3.0 thumb drive, It is just a bit larger than a thumb drive and you do have a cable to deal with unlike thumb drives, but that can be a good thing for two reasons, in case you are tight for space around your USB 3.0 connections and thumb drives do not have the capacity or anywhere near the read write speeds of newer SSD's."
_
"It was initially difficult to figure out how to open the case without damaging the circuit board (run a tiny screwdriver along the seam to pry it loose, btw), but it works fine."
_
"Good but very hard to open the case."

Speed

Speed:
"The down side however is that while the top part of the case is metal, it has no contact pads with the SSD nor does it have any sort of venting, so if I am moving allot of files the drive heats up, and fast, to the point it will throw an error and stop working, I then have to let it cool down before I start it again."
_
"That's not the best USB speed I've seen (My Sandisk Extreme USB drive can write on USB 3 at over 120 mb s and read at more than 200) -- but it's probably the limits of this devices' controller and it's quite good."
_
"Disappoint on the speed."
_
"The speed of USB 3.0 is amazing."
_
"On the other hand, while this product has been working reliably, it transfers data at around 1 3 the speed that I was (inconsistently) able to achieve with another product."
_
"Thank you very much for the product it really satisfied me from the shape to performance."
_
"I was amazed at the transfer speeds."
_
"Transfer speeds are excellent!"

Transfer

Transfer:
"Love it, It is so small I needed it for data transfer off a failing SSD."
_
"I was worried about doing it myself and how to transfer the data."
_
"Super annoying during long transfers and you need it to be stable."
_
"Love it, It is so small I needed it for data transfer off a failing SSD."
_
"On the other hand, while this product has been working reliably, it transfers data at around 1 3 the speed that I was (inconsistently) able to achieve with another product."
_
"Everything is perfect and I have noticed some heat generated during the transfer is it normal.."
_
"I was amazed at the transfer speeds."
_
"Transfer speeds are excellent!"

mSATA

mSATA:
"The ZTC has no problem with higher amperage mSATA above 1A."
_
"The problem with this one and most of them right now being sold everywhere is that they are not reliable, don't support higher size mSATA SSD's above 250GBs and only supported limited mSSD's and last they dont support mSASA's that require more than 1A of power cause this will cause them to overheat and crash being not reliable!"
_
"It fits perfectly my mSATA memory and was recognized with no problem by my Win7."
_
"I don't know how other reviewers have this running perfectly on Windows 8.1, but I am still not recommending this enclosure for those of you on 8.1.Testing on Windows 7 and OS X 10.9 and 10.10, paired with mSATA drives from various vendors (Samsung, Micron, etc."
_
"My Samsung EVO mSata SSD drive fit perfectly and the case went back together easily."
_
"Product worked great for hooking up an mSata drive to be cloned to, and then the old mSata drive was put in this enclosure to be used as an external hard drive."
_
"500GB Samsung Evo 850 mSATA drive fit perfectly."
_
"This was excellent for cloning an mSATA drive."
_
"ZTC Sky Board mSATA Aluminal silver color version is a very cute but quality build mSATA external enclosure."
