Lacks durability

Strengths:

Inexpensive and easy to use

Weaknesses:

USB port not durable... intermittent connectivity after a while

Additional Comments:

I have several of these cases, with the oldest one about 2 years old. The old ones are developing connectivity problems on the case-side of the USB port, so that you have to lift or jiggle the cable to get connection, and will disconnect if bumped. The problem is case-side since it persists with different cables.

Bad enclosures, fails after only a few hours

Strengths:

Small, sleek, nice looking aluminum USB3

Weaknesses:

I had 2 of these enclosures with a 256GB SSD inside, the first one died after only a few uses, luckily within the 14 day return preiod though, unfortunately the return period is not extended when you echange, so when the other one died as well after only a few hours use a few days after day, i was left with some dumpster decoration... great price point if the thing actually lasted more than a few days.

Additional Comments:

Do not buy it, you'll just end up returning or tossing it out.

Oustanding at this price

Strengths:

Nice form factor USB 3.0 standard Cord included Great build

Weaknesses:

None

Additional Comments:

What a great product at an excellent price. The fact that it can hold up to 1.5 TB and that it's vented etc and also tweaked for SSD drives is fantastic. Good price point. Very easy for assembly even for anyone not confident with a screw driver. I'll be back to buy a couple of more - excellent product.

Best Enclosure for the Money!

Strengths:

Mounting screws (instead of the friction fit enclosures) supports either 7mm or 9.5mm drives thanks to screws compact and sturdy enclosure

Weaknesses:

Maybe the bright blue activity light for some that leave it plugged in over night in their bedroom? but it doesn't bother me

Additional Comments:

Has excellent throughput Tested with a Corsair Force GT 240GB SSD Max Read: 432MB/s Max Write: 424MB/s
