Pros
Affordable. Good speed. Good looking
Cons
USB connector seems flimsy
Summary
This is the second Mediasonic enclosure I buy lately. First one had a lot of problems during large transfers. Turns out that my internal cable was defective. That convince me to buy another one. Both of them work great.

Pros
Cheap, USB3
Cons
Cheap
Summary
Just needed a cheap external USB3 enclosure for an SSD, so I bought this. It does what I needed it to do, and gives decent transfer speeds over USB3. Single USB cable with no separate power cable.

Pros
USB 3.0
Support SATA3
Portable, 1 cable support data and power
Good price
Cons
USB socket is flicky
Summary
Came across this enclosure while I was buying some batteries. Seems good deal for a SATA3 enclosure.

I bought some other enclosures before. Not all of them support SATA3. This one works, well, after I resolve some trouble.

First, the enclosure is so tight. It is not really a bad thing. I won't want my HD get loose inside. But a new case, I don't know is it just tight, or it does not fit. After a few plug and remove, it is a lot better now.

The contact of the USB socket is bad. At first I thought my HD does not work. But it is actually the USB socket. After a few try, the light does turn red and flash, it does work. Not sure did I bought a lemon or bad quality. If USB works well, I would give this enclosure 4 or 5 stars.

Pros
- Cheap
- Very portable, fits inside a pocket
Cons
- Cheap design
- Uses foam tape
Summary
Bought for a 500gb Toshiba drive. Transfers are slow, maybe because of the drive or because of the enclosure or because of USB2.0, but regardless for the price I can't complain. Not entirely sure what the maximum capacity is, couldn't find the information anywhere. Did not appreciate the foam tape for noise reduction/impact absorption, they could have easily added padding to the screws.

Pros
Cheap, USB 3, easy to install drive
Cons
Short USB 3 cable
Summary
Worked fine with my OCZ SSD drive. No problems using as a backup. Wouldn't try to swap drives in & out, you need a higher quality enclosure. Good value for the money ($14.99)

Pros
Cheap Ext. 2.5 Case
Cons
Connections problems on usb3 port.
Small cable...
Summary
I bought this case to make a backup disk with an old seagate 360gb lying around. I barely use this drive, so i didn't notice in the first weeks that it often loose connection on usb3 ports. Work as intended on usb2 ports. Maybe a defect device or a poorly designed controller? Who knows... Not the only one with this issue, so check yours in the first day !

Pros
USB 3.0,Cheap
Cons
None
Summary
I picked this USB 3.0 enclosure onsale for $14.99 right before christmas. I was looking into getting a WD passport 1 TB, but I didnt like the 1 year warranty it came with, I have had these types of drives fail a couple months after the warranty was up. So I purchased this enclosure along with a 1TB 2.5" western digital blue harddrive just for the peace of mind and because of the 2 year warranty on the 1TB drive just incase of failure. I highly recommend doing it this way instead of buying the prebuild HD enclosures that already come with the drives installed

Pros
USB 3.0
Inexpensive
Cons
Plasticky
Summary
I bought for the use of cloning my laptop's HDD, and it works perfectly as expected. As with all the other reviews, it is indeed plasticky and cheap-feeling, but it gets the job done.

Pros
Cheap price?
Cons
Cheap piece of garbage.
Summary
Even if it sucks as an enclosure (which is does: it's poorly designed plastic and pads that "hold" your drive in... if you can get it in without trimming back some plastic first), I would give it 3 stars because I needed a cheap alternative to the $30-$50 USB 3.0 to SATA adapters for doing laptop data transfers. Well, it didn't work with the Agility 3 60GB SSD I tried, and it only barely worked with an old 160GB HDD I had laying around. By "barely" I mean that, like everyone else, it had connection issues. I had to unplug and re-plug back in to establish a working connection. Even then, it wouldn't connect at USB 3.0 rate.

Not even worth the hassle if free. Do not buy.
