Product Description

Color: Silver

SABRENT 2.5-Inch SATA Aluminum Hard Drive to USB 2.0 Enclosure (EC-US25)

Take advantage of USB 2.0 to quickly transfer files up to 480 Mbps! Connect any 2.5 inch Serial ATA (SATA) or SATA II Hard Drive to your computer through an available USB 2.0 port on your desktop or laptop. The enclosure is constructed from durable aluminum to ensure heat dissipation. Transfer data quickly and easy; with this great external hard drive case. This enclosure allows you to connect your SATA HDD to USB 1.1 and 2.0. This enclosure supports 9.5mm Hard Drive thickness. Hot-swappable, plug and play, no drivers needed.

The Difference Between USB 2.0 and 3.0

USB cables have different transfer speeds (2.0 and 3.0) that indicate how fast the data is transferred. The higher the number, the faster they can transfer data. For full transfer speeds, the cable and the device must be capable of the same transfer speed. The only way to achieve full USB 3.0 speeds is if the computer, cable, and phone all support USB 3.0 connectivity.

System requirements

Available USB 2.0 port on the computer Windows: 2000/XP/Vista/7/8 (Both 32-bit & 64-bit versions) MAC: OS X

Works great and very easy to install.

It has three very tiny screws keeping the enclosure closed, and comes with a small screwdriver for opening it up.

Great enclosure for an old laptop hard drive.

Color Name: Silver
THE SHORT STORY

Installation consists on pushing the HDD in and screwing 2 little near-microscopic screws using the little screwdriver provided. It's all done in less than 5 minutes but you need good eyes and a steady hand because the little screws are VERY small.

The HDD, once in the enclosure, connects to the computer via an (included) USB wire which powers it. It's immediately recognized by Vista or Windows 7 or your PS3 and you are ready to use it. Recommended.

End of short story.

SPECS

You get the following:

- The aluminum enclosure with the circuitry to the USB interface. It's important for the case to be 'metal' because metal helps dissipate the heat, unlike 'plastic' which would trap it inside.
- 2 little screws (them being so small, it would be good to have an extra just in case).
- A screwdriver for the little screws.
- About nice USB interface cable that would allow you to power the HDD off 2 USB ports if needed.
- Some low-grade plastic-rubber or rubberized plastic protective sleeve which you are not likely to use.
- A little English/Spanish/French manual that includes an easy to follow 6-step installation guide.

RATING

I like it because the price is right and it meets my expectations of keeping HDDs I rip off old laptops or gaming machines safe and accessible through a USB interface.

NOTE:

Off the TWO 'for review' units that I received (one black and one aluminum finish) one had the circuit board detached from the body, in other words, it was broken. This is the response I received from Sabrent after I inquired about their policies in such cases.

Color Name: Silver
...how can you go wrong? I have a special category of tech accessories that I call "cheap enough to buy annually" - these Sabrent enclosures certainly fall into that category! Sabrent sent me a sample of this device. This review is my honest opinion.

I remember when the first of these ultra-cheap IDE enclosures came out - they were a small revolution in portable technology in their own right. Nothing has changed. I have a huge USB 3.0 dock that is super handy, but also bulky. With cheap enclosures like this, I rarely use it for 2.5" drives. Okay so this thing is convenient, but what about everything else?

BUILD/CONSTRUCTION
For $7 with free shipping, you shouldn't be expecting too much. Without a drive in it, this sort of feels like a tin of mints. It is thin aluminum with only an LED and power/data end, mostly plastic. I don't count this against the enclosure, but I mention it so there are no surprises. The all-aluminum construction does allow for the entire enclosure to act like a heatsink - do not be surprised if the whole thing is warm to the touch, it just means it's doing its job.

On the inside there is a foam padding to offer some solidity when the drive is in place, but it could have been thicker - the drive I used barely touches it.

**Important** - these kinds of enclosures offer little to no drive protection, and I highly advise NOT dropping your drive in this enclosure.

Once inserted, you need to drive two screws (included) into the pilot holes - the mini screwdriver included was not the best solution for this (not enough torque with the tiny handle) so I ended up using my own precision Philips-head. It MIGHT do in a pinch.

OPERATION
No issues here.

Color Name: USB 3.0 (Support UASP) Black
Length: 2:38 Mins
I've been using the Sabrent 2.5" Sata/SSD USB 3.0 enclosure for around a week now and it's been useful for accessing those extra hard drives I have sitting around from my old Toshiba laptops. After the second fried mother board from Toshiba, I just have two sitting around and need an extra enclosure to make life easier.

I had a metal 2.5" enclosure where the case is loosely connected at the top and every so often the casing will slip off the top. The Sabrent enclosure has USB 3.0 (faster transfer for the USB ports that supports it) and the enclosure secures the hard drive and keeps dust out.

Package:
Looks like something I would find at Microcenter or Frys.

Contents:
Enclosure
USB 3.0 dual USB male tipped cable
Manual

Usage:
This particular enclosure also includes an on/off switch to reduce the need to replug the USB each time to re-access the hard drive after it is ejected from the computer.

Installing the Sata hard drive was simple, just remove the lid and slide the hard drive into the connector and close the lid.

There is a blue indicator light on the top center to let you know when the enclosure is receiving power. (Great for my laptop where the USB ports do not always function properly) [Yeah, this laptop is getting old, sadly]

I use Windows 7 and the connection is fairly instant. No drivers needed, just the drivers of the hard drive if it needs to be recognized.

Now my laptop has USB 2.0 ports and was unable to use the full USB 3.0 potential, but the current computers I have seen usually come with a few USB 3.0 ports for faster data transferring.

The other nice part about this enclosure is that it is not slippery like the aluminum enclosures I have had.
