I bought this to replace a Rocketfish USB 3.0 SATA drive enclosure that was causing disk corruption and loosing connections. This Sabrent model is supremely better and has been running consistently for weeks without error while connected to an Iomega NAS as well as a Windows 7 desktop.
The solid black metal box keeps my hard drives much cooler than the Rocketfish did. The vents are well placed. It doesn't have obnoxious lights shining from it; simply a helpful small blue light to alert you that it's powered on. The box also takes up minimal space which is great.
In the box, the cable connections to the hard drive are a little awkward. I have other drive enclosures where the drive slides into the SATA and power connections and are easier to swap out drives than the Sabrent.
Overall, the Sabrent 3.5" USB 3.0 SATA drive enclosure is a good purchase.
Rated 4 out of 5 by sps131 Nice and easy to use.
Took the old SATA hard drive from my old computer and secured the screws to the enclosure, plug in the cable and now I have a new hard drive. Really no directions included but you really don't need any. It has an LED activity light and an on/off switch. The power supply plug/transformer is kind of bigger than I would have suspected. Overall I am pleased with this purchase.
Rated 5 out of 5 by beauhase Does the job and then some
I bought this after my PC power supply went and I wanted to pull all the old files off of the hard drive and onto my new iMac. The USB 3.0 port is SUPER fast... I moved all of my photos, videos, and music very quickly. The case is made of metal and is slick to look at, even though it sits behind my Mac. I now use it for my Time Machine to backup all my data. Great purchase, great value, will definitely use the Sabrent brand in the future.
