5.0 out of 5 stars Inateck UASP case for SSD and HDD drives with USB C to USB3 lead., 8 Aug. 2016
I've bought other Inateck products and they're universally excellent with particularly good customer service. This new product is a portable hard drive case optimised for UASP SSD drives which ensures they'll run at peak external performance.

The case is a breeze to open requiring no tools. Simply slide off the cover, click your SATA drive in using the small guide slots and then slide the cover back into place. Couldn't be easier. Plug the C type to USB3 lead into the type C socket (don't worry about polarity) and the drive is ready to run.

With a 7200rpm rotary drive I managed 122mb/s read and 120mb/s write. Unfortunately I haven't got a spare SSD to test it with at the moment. My previous Inateck UASP case gave 420mb/s read and 395mb/s write and I've no reason to think this case would be any slower.

The design is sleek alloy with a plastic cover and a small white LED near the C type socket to indicate activity. It also comes with a rubber sticky pad should you need to pad the lid for 7mm SSD drives or a loose fitting HDD.

All in all an excellent bit of kit with very fashionable engineered looks but at a very low price. Do I recommend it? Definitely.

Had a delivery problem this was sorted very quickly by the supplier. Have to say that it is just superb. Very smooth action on the buttons. Positive scroll wheel. I used to use an Apple Mighty Mouse but gave up cleaning the scroll ball. This is a very good replacement and much cheaper. Paired quickly with my MAC. Tip: To pair you press Left Scroll/Scroll Wheel/Right Scroll at the same time but only briefly. I held the buttons down and nothing happened. To come out of Power Save mode which kicks in after 8 minutes, you press any button for at least 1 second and it should reconnect. I'm very pleased with this mouse at an exceptionally keen price.

This has got to be an absolute bargain. As an upgrade to the UAE23 the difference was immediate and obvious. The depth and width to the sound stage is immense. The Bass is deep, full and rich. Mids are clean and Highs sparkle with clarity. The Global Drum Project's 'Baba" sounds exceptional with deep bass drums and reverberation on vocals I had not noticed before. Tom the Lion's 'sleep' is a very complex and difficult piece to reproduce but the Sabre did it superbly.

At this price, its a steal, try it, you won't be disappointed. Without any run-in, straight out of the box, its excellent.

These are well made. Neat folding system means they rotate into a small area. They don't come with a bag but you can use the very neat box. One side features a 3.5mm socket for the provided lead which allows them to be used as ordinary headphones. The other earpiece has push buttons (2) for volume up/down, a single button for power on/off which is announced in English over the headphones. And finally, a spring loaded rotary control for selecting/playing MP3's on your phone. There is also a built in microphone for answering calls. Initially, the built-in battery takes about 2.5 hours to charge via USB but then it lasts a very long time. Haven't recorded any numbers yet but I've used them for several days without any sign of the battery flattening.

The sound via Bluetooth would be described as good with plenty of Bass although playing some Flac tracks via Fidelia lifted the sound considerably. I mainly use these for late night TV viewing and have to say they are pretty good. Bluetooth 4.1 does a good job of keeping battery use down and fidelity up. If you want hifi wireless cans with good battery life, try these. You can't get much better for £20.

Update: I've used these every night for 3-5 hours and they ran low after 2 weeks which is amazing. My previous Headphones lasted 3 nights before needing a charge.

Update: The headband has now snapped like a lot of other customers who reviewed the headphones and I tried to find out how to return these but the company is in China. So, after 5 months these are bin material.

Update 2:
Amazon have given me a full refund and provided me with a free returns label. As soon as I dropped them off at a local Collect+ shop, I was refunded! What service! I've replaced them with the same model in White which does seem better made. The adjusters are more positive, the sound is better and deeper and the headband clamps my ears a bit tighter but not uncomfortably. Only time will tell if these are stronger but the headband does seem a little thicker.

Only giving 2 stars because I haven't been able to pair with my Mac Mini. Don't know why, it finds the mouse but will not connect.

Hippidion have sorted all my problems and couldn't have been more helpful.

You can't beat original Miracle Whip. Its from the USA and full of additives, gmo's etc, but used sparingly its unbeatable. For that Authentic KFC taste you can't beat it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inateck HDD case, 12 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bit disappointed as the reviews said this case was fast so on that basis I ordered one. But beware as the same reviews are shared between two different Inatek cases. The cheaper one (this review) is £13.99 and runs an SSD at 250mbs. The dearer one £15.99 is UASP Optimised to run an SSD at 450mbs. But the reviews are exactly the same which is very misleading. This caused me to buy the wrong case which I cannot recommend for an SSD. The reviews for different models should not be shared as it misleads customers.

Update: now got the SSD Optimized UASP version and it is brilliant. Write speed is now over 300mbs and read is 430mbs which will do nicely for USB3. But, the new case is £2 dearer (not much considering the performance gain)and make sure you order the UASP version for SSDs - http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00FCLG65U?ref_=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_0 - and NOT the HDD version.

Upate 2: I've received exceptional customer service from Inatek who have now refunded 50% of the price of my Drive case. Make sure you order the UASP case if you want to use an SSD and you're good to go.
