Good Speeds and Build Quality – USB 3.0 Hard Disk Drive Enclosure for 2.5" SATA HDD - Black Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

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:
Bottomline:
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.
