    Pros:
    Very simple design, one screw holds the case together. Case is made of durable metal which helps with heat dissipation. Great price and very small design.
    Cons:
    Never had very good speeds with this enclosure even when it was new. The design of the USB 3.0 male end for the enclosure is a ...

    Excelent product

    posted by marcelio on 07/04/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Slim, compact and stylish. Easy to open and install the HDD. Insurance for having a screw fixing its closure. It has only a USB 3.0 compatible with 2.0. Requires no auxiliary source. Compatible with HDDs up to 1TB, SATA. USB cable is of adequate length and ...
    Cons:
    Nothing about the product, only the time of arrival in Brazil (45 days).

    Fast, cheap and amazing quality

    posted by adriansouto on 07/01/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    * Great speed, I got a data transfer up to 80 MB/s in the USB 3.0 port. * The case makes your laptop hdd perfectly portable, with an screw to secure it and no need to use an AC cable. * Doesn't look fragile at all, the design is perfect
    Cons:
    * It would be great if it had a small instruction manual. I had no idea what to do when I received it.

    Works perfect

    posted by rodrigodki on 06/14/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    It is really Plug and Play on Windows 8 and Ubuntu Linux 13.04. Sustained speed of 90MB/s on my Samsung Hard Disk with AMD 3.0 USB. The aluminum alloy helps dissipate heat from HD. It has a green LED that blinks whenever you copy/moves files. The package th...
    Cons:
    It was a little harder to open, I have used a mobile professional opening toolkit (sku 29544) to help.

    A perfect workspace

    posted by jamestut on 05/31/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Aluminium case, full USB 3 speed (about 75 MB/s data transfer rate on my old 120GB HDD), requires only one USB host cable to operate. I use it as a windows to go workspace, and it operates quickly, no different from windows 8 when installed on internal hard...
    Cons:
    The green light is too bright. It sometimes annoying when the room condition is dark.

    Best in class for the price

    posted by Nico282 on 05/29/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Great design with a tight fit on the disk, compact while offering a good degree of protection. The included cable seems good quality. The disk is quickly mounted on Windows and Mac. If you have a phillips screwdriver handy, is a matter of seconds to snap in...
    Cons:
    Both sides of the drive capture fingerprints, don't buy if you're obsessed by clean silver surfaces :-)

    Pros:
    - Fast speeds, probably limited by the hard drive - Standard connection, so you can get aditional cables in case you loose or damage the original one - Activity LED, see when the drive is working or powered
    Cons:
    - Hard to open, there is one screw and lots of pressure clips that don't come out easily - Quite flimsy, even being metal on th...

    Fast USB3, slim design but hard to swap HDDs

    posted by kelvinang on 04/29/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    USB3 provides a very fast data transfer rate on USB3-equipped computers. Strong, sturdy USB3 cable provided. Bright green LED light to let you know that the HDD is powered and being accessed.
    Cons:
    It's very hard to pry and slide open the case to install the hard drive. Construction of the case is a bit rough, and unless yo...
