|[Optimized For SSD] Inateck USB 3.0 Hard Drive Disk HDD Enclosure/ Case for 2.5 inch SATA HDD/SSD, Support UASP, Tool Free- Sliver|
Decent case but whoodaddy its tough to open the first time
Easy enough to use once you unlock the mystery of how the back of the case opens! The instructions that came with it are useless and do not indicate how this magical feat is accomplished. Yes there is a little locking latch on the front next to the USB 3 connector that shows locked or unlocked. The problem is that the top and bottom pieces are so stiff when new that in the unlocked position the resistance to slide the bottom portion of the box back so the back cover slides down as depicted in the product image here, is the almost the same as when trying to slide it open without unlocking the latch.
*** NOTE as I write this review and click on the link it brings me to a different case made by Inateck which opens in a completely different way! Amazon, have you made a mistake in the links?
The transfer speed is at the standard USB 3 rate. The whole thing is light weight plastic except for the aluminium piece added to the top cover. Nothing fancy on the connector end, USB connector, blinky light to indicate drive activity, and case lock/unlock switch.
