This is a really nice USB 3.0 hard drive enclosure it is perfect for fast transfers of data and fits 2.5 inch hard drives perfectly with no movement.
I had a little trouble with this enclosure on my windows 7 PC what happened was the driver was not installing correctly, so I tried to uninstall it and reinstall and had the same problem after like 10 minutes of messing with that I tried disabling the driver then re-enabling it and the driver installed correctly and the device worked fine after that. I have been using it for about a week now without troubles so I believe this fixed it.
The speeds are nice since it is a 3.0 enclosure I get very fast speeds compared to older 2.0 enclosures. I would definately recommend this as a permanent replacement to my current and now old 2.5 inch external hard drive enclosure.
This product is great I was able to test it out on my friends iMac and it was a perfect fit and fixes the troubles of having to constantly going onto the back of the computer to switch thumb drives or external HDs I let him have it and he says after using it he couldn’t be happier with the simple design and easy access he now had to the back USB ports.
Probably the best external HD I have used
First I have copied files at upwards of 100-120 megabytes per second
The attachable cable holders on this is very convenient one of my favorite features allowing me to never forget or lose the cable.
This is shockproof and water resistant I have had other hard drives I have gotten that stated they were water resistant and shock proof but this is the real deal I have dropped it a few times by knocking it off the edge of my desk but without worry I just pick it up and can plug it in and it works flawlessly. It works on a single USB 3.0 port which is also very amazing as many other USB powered HDs I have had required either an external power source or using two USB ports.
I trust this HD with all backup data storage I need I havn’t had any problems with memory loss or over power draw on my USB ports.
I recommend this to anyone who wants a durable, trusted, and secure hard drive.
There isn’t much to say about this it is perfect I notice no speed difference when using it for my external HD. Being able to connect two USB 3.0 cables together is very convenient especially if you are using all the front USB ports on the front of your computer with great speeds.
This is perfect for people who use laptops especially when you only have 3 ports and when you use a bluetooth dongle and wireless mouse taking up two of the three ports it gives you three extra while also being USB 3.0. When transferring data from one port to another on the Hub the speeds are great and will suffice for average transfers from one flash to another. It is also backwards compatible. The red light on it indicates the power to the device which is nice when troubleshooting why it wouldn’t work (I forgot to plug it into my desktop pc when looking for the plugged in devices lol)
The overall design is great but one thing I would like is if the cable from the computer to the hub was longer for my desktop PC but it is perfect for my laptop. One thing to look out for is that for some USB devices it may be hard to plug in and unplug but one thing I did to fix this is when plugging in the cord or drive I would slightly angle the USB end while plugging it in while being careful not to damage the hub. This hub is also nice and compact unlike some I have had before this one doesn’t need a power cable and works with one USB port.
After using this for a few days I would say its one of the best 3.0 hubs I have used it can also just be used as a charging hub too.
