Rocket fast and comes with cable to boot! – 2.5" SATA USB 3.0 HDD Enclosure with Pouch - Black + Silver (Super-Speed 5Gbps) Reviews

Pros:
CHEAP! Stores want 3x the cost and they don't even come with the cable! Super SPEED! USB3 is going at 2x the speed of the same drive in a USB2 enclosure! Only have to use ONE CABLE for high-current draw drives!
Cons:
The plastic top can get hot and smell if you use 10k drives. Whoops. :P
Other:
Brilliantly easy to use, and works a treat.
Bottomline:
If you have USB3 ports, and fast drives--get it and you will be amazed at how fast an external drive can be. Re-use drives that would normally sit around and collect dust. I am going to buy loads of these enclosures, and put them on my home server as storage.
