Rating: 4/5 for use both on older and newer Macs! February 6, 2017 I just pulled out the original 500GB HDD on my mid-2010 MacBook Pro 15" (USB 2.0 and FW800 ports only), installed an SSD instead, upped the RAM to the max 8GB, and put the old HDD into the Mercury box. Worth doing, and while I had earlier bought the upgrade hardware from another source, OWC/MacSales would be an excellent supplier as well. Most of the rest of my Mac workstations and field use hardware is USB 3, so I was willing to pay twice of what an HDD case that had only USB 3 ports would cost to effectively double or triple my data transfer rates —compared to USB2— on the old machine, using the the FW800 interface, and also getting full USB3 speed on all the other machines in the house. Very robust design and clearly an excellent product. But again, probably not worth is if you have USB3 ports on your Macs, since FW800 is otherwise obsolete and long abandoned by Apple.

Reviewer: OldWorldComputing
Rating: 4/5 you may need the AC adapter November 20, 2016 I have several of these drive enclosures. They're very handy for tossing in the laptop bag. I also use them for rotating off-site backups. My only complaint is that, with some drives, they may require more power than is provided by USB or Firewire, which means you have to carry one of the AC adapter wall-warts AND be near a power outlet. This reduces the portability considerably. This drawback is barely implied by a tiny footnote on the product page, and is more explicit in the documentation that comes with the product. I suggest you buy one of the AC adapters and keep it with the unit, at least until you're sure the drive works reliably without it.

(I encountered the problem with HGST 1TB drives; some work without the AC adapter, some don't. Frustrating, especially until I figured out what the problem was.)

April 21, 2016 Now that OWC explained the DIY SSD's to me, I purchased this case not realizing I really didn't need portability, but that I did need the option of USB 3.0 & FireWire.

I can use it in my studios, or on my laptop in bed (my favorite way to work). Couldn't do without it.

Rating: 5/5 Speeds up back-ups from MBP greatly January 9, 2016 I have a late '08 MBP 2.53Ghz which I have upgraded with an SSD 480 Gb HD. It has rejuvenated it so much that I needed an external enclosure to place a spare 7200 rpm HD which could be used on both MBP with Firewire 800 & use USB-3 with my new 27" Imac. The Backups from the MBP via Firewire 800 to the 7200 HD is great, compared to my experience in the past with slower HD's. Of course, via USB-3 its faster still. Extremely pleased, gets a little warm but no worries.

Rating: 5/5 Portable HD Enclosure May 9, 2015 I purchased the OWC portable HD Enclosure (USB 3, FireWire 800) as a supplement to my other brand Thunderbolt external drive (that company has stopped making/supporting Thunderbolt). In terms of speed for what I use the external drive for (files, music, movies) no drag nor buffering. I am using a MacBookPro 13" 2015 (non-retina) USB 3. For the Enclosure I added a Seagate/Samsung 2 TB 5400 2.5" HD. I had the proper tools to install the HD & enclosure, taking five minutes total. One note: Be sure to tighten the screws securely between the aluminum heat sink and HD. There will still be a small amount of play once HD/heat sink are installed. Once the plate is installed everything becomes tight and otherwise secured.

Rating: 4/5 Good, but I need a Thunderbolt equivalent March 1, 2015 This product is perfect for what it does, but really I should have waited until the thunderbolt version is available (whenever that will be). Even Firewire is not really fast enough for the purposes I wanted the case for (replacing the boot disk on an old iMac using an SSD drive I already have).

Also, it confused me when I received it with only one cable - the other cable was hidden inside the carry case which took me a while to find!

Rating: 5/5 It's really good but.. February 14, 2015 It's nice to have usb 3 and firewire. Putting it together took longer than expected because the metal thing inside needed to fit in the square hold of the plastic case. In order for me to get it right I had to not put two screws in but it still was secure. So on the side there are two screws and one screw can slide a little. I kept that one in and didn't use the other one.

Rating: 5/5 Essential February 12, 2015 I have used these cases several times to replace hard drive enclosures with failed bridge sets, where the drive itself is still good. In the latest instance, I needed to replace a Western Digital My Passport Studio enclosure - because WD offers no replacement cases for their drives. OWC provides a wide selection of connectivity options for their On-The-Go cases; I was able to actually upgrade from the FireWire 800/mini USB 2 WD case to a FireWire 800/USB 3 OWC case. While these cases are not inexpensive, the enclosures are solid and have an improved design that has an exposed heat-sink on the bottom of the case. Assembly is a bit tedious, with three sets of four screws and one set of two screws. But it provides an alternative to throwing away a perfectly good hard drive. And, if the drive eventually fails - as they all do - you can pop in a new drive without paying for yet another enclosure.

In addition, the On-The-Go enclosures can use a power adaptor if for any reason the drive won't mount on bus power alone. OWC offers power adaptors for a variety of drives and devices. I've purchased a number of these as well - as I did for this enclosure - see below.

Rating: 5/5 Best thing since sliced bread August 27, 2014 I have two of these, one formatted with OS X and the other NTFS. Great for high speed mobile data transfers. If you intend to use a 7200rpm drive that draws a bit of power, note that the drive may not always switch on over USB. Best to try another USB port or if connected to a desktop, always use the USB ports on the back of the tower as they can supply more power.

Rating: 5/5 Really nice enclosure July 25, 2014 It's very practical as well as stylish. 2 Firewire ports allows you to daisy-chain. Has on on/off switch. The combo Firewire 800/USB 3 means you're guaranteed to get high performance no matter what Mac you're connecting to. (I have some 3+ year old Macs with USB 2.) Also, its transparency allows you to quickly identify exactly what drive it is. Plus it's cool looking. :)

My only suggestion: It took me a while to figure out how to stick my SSD into the enclosure. The instructions were more for software installation and not hardware.
