Worth mentioning again that if you do plan on using the enclosure, it is not a good one. The internal connection only supports Sata I and II so your SSD will not operate at full speed.

SATA cable with no latches. Sounds fun.

I'm not going to bother, cause these enclosures are very large compared to the small Syba SY-ENC25054 ones I got from Newegg.

Also on this Rosewill model.. when I look at the pictures it shows a USB 2.0 Micro-B port & cable, instead of the usual, wider USB 3.0 Micro-B port. Am I missing something here?

**Nevermind.. review says it's a "Proprietary cable". Ugh. Why?!

yea just gotta know what you are going to use it for. USB 2.0 is fine with me, i can use these on modded consoles like Wii, PS2, PS3. The 3.5" enclosures i use on my modded PSTV. The USB 3.0 enclosures i can use it to create a Live Linux Boot

I don't know if I would want this enclosure. Sata II speed max and it uses a proprietary USB cable according to the reviews. Lose the cable and the enclosure might as well be a light paper weight. Not sure why this particular model would require a proprietary connector vs. a regular USB 3.0 connector.

Yes, that's a good point. I guess they figure SATA III is faster than USB 3.0 anyway, so why bother. I guess you would need USB 3.1 Gen 2 to get full SATA III speeds? but even then it probably wouldn't perform as well over USB.

That's exactly the reason. If you lose the cable, must buy a new enclosure. Also, licencing is money, if you use your own connector, you pay less or nothing at all to USB.org

I don't really care about SATA III, I can't see much reason to throw a SSD on the USB, and SATA II is plenty fast for platter drive out there.

However the proprietary cable is kind a deal breaker, I know it's FAR but you loose that cable you'll have to replace the socket, hunt down cable to buy or more likely just toss the damn thing.

To bad it looks like a nice box otherwise.


I could see this being fine if you're gonna add this as permanent external storage like on the back of a router or your desktop.. but if you travel with it probably only a matter of time before the cable has as a short or is lost.

I know that most people don't even realize what a convenience this is over buying enclosures. The most recent expired deal had it at less than $5.
