    Rocket fast and comes with cable to boot!

    posted by DragonPhyre on 04/05/2012 Certified Owner

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

    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

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

    Pros:
    CHEAP! Stores want way more for this even with dead hard drives inside. Excellent build quality! Parts shiny and very stock looking. Fits perfectly, and makes it a SNAP to have more than one HD for certain systems.
    Cons:

    Great for the price - Buy two packs!

    posted by DragonPhyre on 04/05/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Cheap. Don't feel too bad when I cut them apart to make a custom cable for something. Multi-colored. Helps organizing wires. They are just the right size for most things. Standard pitch size for loads of things. Can be jammed onto legs of chips for rapid sw...
    Cons:
    Some plastic clips are not really sturdy and the plastic connector comes off easily. 2 in the bag so far.
