Reviewer: N8QQW Location: Cincinnati, OH Age: 55-65 Experience Level: IT Professional Owned Product: less than a month
Rating: 4/5 Nice, solid case with quality cables June 28, 2019 I’ve tried a number of enclosures, and this one is the best I’ve found so far to house an SSD. Easy to install the drive, very solid case. I would have gone 5 stars, but one of the closure screws was stripped, so down a star for that. The back plate still secured fine, so not a big deal.

I would recommend this item to a friend! This review is from OWC Mercury Elite Pro mini Portable External Storage Enclosure. Customer Videos:
