Day 1 So far so good. I was/am skeptical. I WILL update only IF there are any negative changes. So far this is a great product.

In my enclosure I have a 250GB Samsung SSD 850 EVO, the enclosure I purchased is the one that supports UASP, which my computer does have. Im running a late 2012 Apple MBP, OSX Yosemite 10.10.2, i7 2.6GHz, 500GB SSD, 8GB DDR3, USB 3.0 with UASP support. I partitioned the drive with a MBR (master boot record) instead of GPT using disk management on a Windows 7 PC. I then did a "erase" as apple calls it or (format) using "Disk Utility" on my Macbook pro. I used "Disk Utility" to format the drive to ExFAT, due to highest performance for both apple/windows compatibility, and set the security options to the option that is just to the right of the "fastest" meaning it performed a single pass of ZEROs over the entire drive before the file system format, took 10-15 minutes. This option is for the Apple "Disk Utility" applet, under "Security Options" on the "Erase" tab. Probably not necessary as the drive was brand new in the box, but I did it anyway.
Benchmark. I used the Mac OS app, "Disk Speed Test" version 2.2.2 by Blackmagicdesign.
I ran 10 tests:
Received 424 MB/s on average write speed. 433 MB/s read speed.
PS if using a Samsung 850EVO use the extra foam pad included with this enclosure to secure drive inside.
