5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 2.5" USB 3.0 external enclosure 19 Aug 2013
By C.R
This is actually an excellent USB external drive, and very reasonably priced.
The best thing about it is no screws required unlike other out there.
Can be a bit stiff to open close but its better that the drive doesnt fall out that way.

Padding is enclosed if you use a 7mm drive.

Using a laptop with a built in USB 3 port and an internal 120GB SSD, I managed to transfer a 750MB MS Office ISO @ 115MB/S to the External drive - a 500GB mechanical drive.

Using Crystal Disk Mark, 5 times 1000MB these are the results:

5.0 out of 5 stars Used with the Samsung 840 EVO 28 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase
It's not at all clear on Samsung's website or in the info provided by Tecknet but this is all you need to clone your present HDD to the Samsung 840 EVO and then you take the 840 EVO out of the case, remove your HDD and replace with the SSD. You then can plug your HDD into the case and you have a). A complete backup of your system and b). A spare external HDD .
The case has Sata slots and your corresponding SSD and HDD will just slot into the case and it comes with the cable necessary to clone your system.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product, at a good price. 1 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase
This was the first USB 3.0 external enclosure that I bought. Since then I have bought another USB 3.0 external enclosure that was about £4 cheaper, as believed it to be a bargain. After putting both enclosures to a comparative test, found this TeckNet enclosure, to be more than twice as fast when transferring a 7GB photo folder to the same enclosed SSD. I repeated this test, this time with an HDD, and again the above TeckNet enclosure was more than twice as fast. (In the test I used the cable that came with the respective enclosure, and for consistency, used the same USB 3.0 port on the computer.) Both external drive enclosures, have the same spec (External USB 3.0 Super Speed [5GBit/s] / Drive enclosure / Case 2,5" (6,4 cm) / SDD + HDD).

Since doing this test, I have sent my bargain back and ordered a second one of these.

The other good features are, no screws (or screwdrivers) needed.. it is easily to fit the HDD or SSD, as it effortlessly fits into the SATA connector (no excessive force is needed, unlike some enclosures I've had in the past) . But you do need to learn, the best way for you, to open the enclosure to put the drive in. There are small retainer tabs, inside and centre, at the top end of the sliding lid. So with light downward pressure to release the tabs, you then need to slide the lid open. It took a fews attempts to do these two movements in one operation. But once you get it, it's easier the second time and becomes easy there after.

This enclosure is made of a hard plastic. I don't no what kind or how strong this plastic is, so I have no idea on how well it could withstand being dropped or having something fall on it.

For the price this is a great product.

5.0 out of 5 stars encase USB3 2 May 2014
By redhead
Verified Purchase
had the enclosure before but USB2 change it to USB3 make a real change. case easy to put on and connect, as other review said, there is a little space at the back. they provide a tiny sponge that i cut to the size and put it at the back. Very good just be careful when you open it and close but i won't do that unless i need to change the hard drive.

5.0 out of 5 stars 1st Encounter with USB 3.0 12 Mar 2014
By McD
Verified Purchase
Got this to put the old hard drive in when upgrading to new one. Can't fault it - does exactly what it's supposed to do and at a damn good price. Perhaps a bit stiff to open, particularly the first couple of times, so be prepared to use a plastic knife, or some other similar soft tool, as a spudger to save splitting fingernails. If you're going to take a drive in and out regularly, I should think it would start to slide more easily eventually. At this price, though, I would have thought it far more sensible just to dedicate it to one drive and use it as a storage case, which is what I've done.

I was surprised to discover it was USB 3.0, which turned out to be a very enlightening and pleasant - 10x faster - surprise.
