    Rating: 4/5 Universal solution May 29, 2021 Great backward and forward drive. FireWire 800/400 to usb3. Sturdy case, like the on/off switch too. In testing I found the usb3 speed for my 4tb SSD to be around 380mb/s vs 480mb/s using another drive case. Will keep it because of its compatibility to my older Macs.

    I would recommend this item to a friend!
