Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Cable

Cable:
"Runs fast as far as I can tell - I transferred a folder of over 30 GBs in a couple minutes Good price for what you getThe bad: Hard to open Has a standard USB cable - I have a bunch of the other type of USB cable."
_
"I broke the case and used a SATA to USB cable from a friend to check whether it's possible to rescue some of the data."
_
"It also has an A style connector on the back, so you have to use a weird A-A cable, not a standard cable that you might already have."
_
"I don't have any fundamental problem with this, but it means you'll really want to keep track of the included cable, because you're unlikely to have any spare USB 3 cables with A-type connectors on both ends in your junk drawer."
_
"The cable was part of the problem, yet even with a new Samsung 3.0 USB cord still no joy."
_
"cable length is good."
_
"Plugged in 500GB 7mm SATA into the enclosure after sliding it open,put in foam space, slid it closed, hooked up USB cable and it was good to go."
_
"Works great with a new cable."
_
"The USB 3.0 cable is a nice feature, and is much faster than USB 2.0."
_
"Super easy to use and comes with all necessary cables."

Case

Case:
"I broke the case and used a SATA to USB cable from a friend to check whether it's possible to rescue some of the data."
_
"getting the case on and off is not as smooth as I would like, and I am afraid of damaging the disc because of the way it sits inside the case, but it works"
_
"My only complains are:1. plastic case instead of aluminum (still looks nice, but i managed to break 1 of the plastic clips when I opened the sliding case)2. had to disassemble to connect hard drive first then put it into the holder (2 screws; so not a big deal, but still annoy with WD Blue drive)Overall seems like a great product will have to see how it holds up in the long run of things."
_
"The only problem I have with this enclosure is it is very difficult to open the case to insert the hard drive."
_
"The case seems a bit flimsy on the plastic (like you could break it with your bare hands if you really wanted to or ever got extremely angry with it and went Hulk-mode on it), but otherwise I have yet to encounter a problem with it."
_
"Very good case well made and easy to open and install the drive inside."
_
"The good: Easy to plug in the hard drive - in this case, an SSD drive."
_
"Very nice case, fast transfer speeds and easy to change drives."
_
"Great case, works well."
_
"very compact & easy access case, works fantastic"

Connector

Connector:
"Given how the SATA connectors are positioned internally, this is not a problem, but it would have been nice to have some extra padding on the door to help force the drive from moving in any way when transporting."
_
"It also has an A style connector on the back, so you have to use a weird A-A cable, not a standard cable that you might already have."
_
"I damaged the sata connectors of one of my boot SSDs, so I put it in here, and it seems to be working great."
_
"I don't have any fundamental problem with this, but it means you'll really want to keep track of the included cable, because you're unlikely to have any spare USB 3 cables with A-type connectors on both ends in your junk drawer."
_
"Uses non-standard USB 3.0 A connector which is a very good thing as the micro USB 3.0 B connector is generally terrible and never works initially or worse fails randomly later."
_
"But besides being a terrible design, it uses a USB3 Type-A connector making it the only USB3 thing I have with that connector."
_
"Given how the SATA connectors are positioned internally, this is not a problem, but it would have been nice to have some extra padding on the door to help force the drive from moving in any way when transporting."
_
"Works really good tough I thought the connector was different"
_
"Uses non-standard USB 3.0 A connector which is a very good thing as the micro USB 3.0 B connector is generally terrible and never works initially or worse fails randomly later."
_
"I kind of like that the connector is male-to-male for ease of use, but it'll annoy you if you're used to the mini connector."
