Easy to install, two screws to open the housing, slot in the drive, close the housing and you're done.
It is an actual USB 3.0 device, which means a big improvement in speed for the hdd I've used with it
It's a slightly loose fit, so things might rattle during transport, no major issue though. The pouch might reduce the noise, but also adds thermal isolation, which increases the temperature of your drive.
Achieves USB 3.0 speeds, the drive I've installed does not reach 5Gbps, so I can't state anything about the 5Gbps claim.
If you have a spare sata drive just laying around somewhere and you have an USB 3.0 port in your computer, get this, if you do not have an USB 3.0 port, it might be cheaper to get a USB 2.0 housing.
