I recently purchased a Dell XPS12 convertable ultrabook running Windows 8. Because Dell wanted upwards of $350 to upgrade from a 128GB Msata SSD to a 256GB model, I instead ordered a 256GB Crucial MSATA SSD from Amazon, and this enclosure adapter along with it, so that I could still use the old 128GB SSD included with the laptop.

This enclosure did not work on Windows 8 via USB3 more or less from the Get Go. Installing the drive into the enclosure was simple, and the package included everything that I would need to get going(screws, cable, it even included a mini phillips screwdriver. I was impressed!).

After plugging it into one of the USB3 ports on my XPS12, the drive immediately powered up and presented itself to Windows. I formatted it to clear the old data and started to copy of a 3gb .ISO file to the drive to test performance. Write performance was excellent, however about 1 minute into the copy the drive disconnected itself from Windows. Unplugging the drive and plugging it back in would not fix the issue, the drive was now dead to the Operating System. Rebooting and then plugging the drive in worked, I began the file copy again, and once again it died partway through.

As another test I just plugged the drive in and let it sit idle for awhile. After about five minutes, it disappeared from windows again, requiring a reboot.

I also tested the drive on USB3 in two other computers running windows 8: an HP Elitebook, and my Gateway Desktop, all with the same results.

Finally, on a hunch I plugged the enclosure into a USB2 port and was able to leave it powered on and functioning for several hours without interruption.

Now, I do not normally write product reviews but in this case I'm making an exception.

I have been working with more and more mSata ssds and I have been waiting for a case like this to give me easy access to the USB 3.0 interface in a smaller than 2.5 inch form factor. I had been using 2 separate adapters to accomplish the same thing and really had not come up with a good solution for a small durable case.

I had been waiting for these to become available since they were announced on the vendors website and I really liked that they decided to use Amazon fulfillment since it makes it easier for me. I quickly ordered 2 cases and had them shipped out together.

The cases arrived in very appropriate yet plain cardboard packaging. The PCB was already inside the main part of the case with the backplate already attached and was heat sealed in a protective bag. The face plate was sealed next to the rest of the case. The protective bag was inside another foam bag. The cable was in its own ziplock bag. Another smaller ziplock bag contained the face plate screws and a very tiny screw driver. I was not impressed with the screw driver but I liked that they gave me 1 extra screw with one case and 2 extra screws with the second case.

I have been using one of the cases for over 24 hours now with 2 different mSata hdds and it has worked fine. I have not run any benchmarks with AS SSD or similar but I was able to access both drives using hdd sentinel and the SMART data looks the same as when I had the drives connected using a sata adapter. File transfers over usb 3.0 seem slightly slower than with the direct sata II connection and about the same as my previous usb 3.0 to sata to msata solution but that was only a very casual observation.

So the case looks great and the hardware seems to function as expected so why 3 stars?

Gets extremely hot to the touch when doing long transfers... actually causes the drive to loose connecting because of the over heat. Its NOT my msata drive, been using that sucker for 8 months as an internal drive in my Asus Gene V mobo.

I wanted to move it out of the case because the msata drive connection internal is only Sata2 (3Gbps) while the msata drive itself is a Sata3 (6gbps) When i saw this i figured it was the answer to my prayers. Now im thinking i should have got the msata to 2.5" adapter, then used a standard usb 3.0 external enclosure.

I've had problems with 3 computers and 4 different usb 3.0 controllers

Update (6/7/2013) - after running several test on two different machines that support msata controllers on the motherboard & usb 3.0, this enclosure does NOT work as described and actually functions SLOWER than an msata2 controller that is capped at 3Gbps.

Using a Mushkin Direct Atlas Deluxe 240GB mSATA SATA III SSD, i was getting on average 240MB/s Read & 190MB/s Write on a Sata2 interface. Moving this to the usb 3.0 enclosure, i was expecting to see higher numbers... WRONG! Read's dropped to 190MB/s and Writes capped around 160MB/s.

I even has Mushkin replace the SSD, no joke. Told them i was convinced that it was the drive. I'm running the latest firmware on the SSD as well (5.0.4)

I cannot recommend this drive. My next attempt will be to find an Msata to 2.5" adapter, then have it put in an external enclosure supporting usb 3.0

Save your money

Update (07/05/2013) - completed Mushkin's firmware upgrade to 5.0.7, nothing has helped.
