3.0 out of 5 stars Startech 2.5" enclosure 18 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase
The item is pretty rugged and smart looking. Downside is the Firewire cable provided don't fit my macbook pro. (different shape). You would think they would standardise these:-(
Otherwise not bad bit of kit.

3.0 out of 5 stars USB Solid, FireWire problematic 20 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase
I was replacing my MacBook Pro's original HD with an SSD so I bought one of these cases to hold the new drive while I duplicated the current drive to it. I tried three times to do this with the case connected via FireWire cable and each time SuperDuper! failed with less than 5% copied over. I switched the connection to USB and the duplication went fine.

I thought the problem might be an incompatibility between the FireWire controller and the SSD but I having tested with the original internal (spinning platters) HD in the case and found the same problem.

Odd thing is I bought the same case in August 2012, put a terabyte 2.5 inch drive in it and it has since been working fine as a FireWire connected Time Machine external on my mother's Mac. Different firmware/chipset maybe?

With USB 3 enclosures much cheaper it's hard to see a reason to buy this if you can't rely on the FireWire functionality.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect 6 Dec 2013
By Vivek

I replaced my MBP 320GB HDD with an SSD and wanted to continue using the old drive as an additional drive, and this enclosure server as the perfect one.

Use it on a day-to-day basic and have had no issues so far.
