Please Note
a. If your SSD doesn’t reach the desired speed, it is advised to reformat the SSD using the GPT advanced format, ensuring a basic sector size of 4 KB. If this solution does not help arbitrate the issue, it is further recommended to use the “all zero fill” option to wipe data residues on alleged “empty” sectors.
b. Our HDD/SSD Enclosures are designed as USB 3.0 A Male interfaces on both ends of the usb cable, which are renown for their improved durability and stability. As the contained cable is for the enclosure, it is advised do not use it for other devices.

As far as installation – enclosure fit and finish … it is simple to insert the drive. The enclosure is made well.

As far as the look – everything lines up, the USB connection is good, and the “fit and finish” of the case is also good.  The case is lightweight; however, sturdy enough.

Why would one want to purchase an enclosure (to build your own hard drive), as opposed to purchasing a finished one?

Generally speaking, manufacturers overcharge for drives.  The price to capability ratio is low.  There are not alot of choices to optimize what you want.  The case manufacturers buy in bulk … not getting price competitiveness … to make profit they add price to the finished drive.

If you buy the drive and case seperately, it is cheaper and you can customize it.
