  • from Calgary

Stopped working very fast

We used an enclosure for 2 hard drives, swapping them several times. It has stopped working after short time (would not connect anymore).

Sata Enclosure

WOW, looks great feels great and works great

  • from Kinburn

so far so good!

I bought this item to be able to use a hard drive from an old computer as a back-up drive. The instructions are super easy and everything you need is included even a small screwdriver. Everything loaded easily. It' a little pricey for a plastic case and a cable, but does the job.

  • from Campbell River, BC

Good Product

Well made, does what it advertised. Will buy another one as the first one worked well with good USB 3 speed. I ise it for automated backups.

  • from Medicine Hat, AB

Works great

I bought this to house a SSD for use as a Time Capsule for my MacBook Pro. The build quality is very good and works as advertised.

  • from Medicine Hat, AB

A nice enclosure.

I bought this to enclose a SSD for use as a Time Machine backup for my MacBook Pro. The quality appears good, fit and finish is good, so far so good. Two thumbs up.

  • from Toronto, ON

Well done!

Years of data has been recovered by using this enclosure. I appreciate the product and the bestbuy.

  • from Calgary, AB

easy to use

I got this to get files off my old laptop when it died. It was super easy to use, even for someone who doesn't know much about computers (I had to google where to find my hard drive). I had my old files on my new computer within minutes. It comes with everything you need (cable, screwdriver).

  • from Hamilton, ON

Nice product

I loved it, it is really great. it is super fast , approved with my expectation

  • from Vancouver, BC

Works Great. Easy to use. Comes with cable and screw driver.

I purchased this enclosure because I was upgrading my internal SATA drive from a regular drive to an SSD drive. I bough an SSD drive and this enclosure so I could plug it into my laptop, clone my internal drive to the external drive and then swap out the drives. The enclosure comes with USB cables and even a little screw driver to take the enclosure apart. Drive plus right in. Everything worked great the first time. I would recommend this product. The only negative is the price is a bit high. I didn't want to gamble and order a cheap one from off shore and risk it not working. I gave it 4 stars but if the price was a bit better I would have given it 5 stars.

This case for a 2.5" drive works like a charm. It is made of good quality materials and all connections feel rigid and strong. I highly recommend it as it is great quality for the price!
