Reviewer: Anonymous Location: Oxford, Ohio Age: Over 65 Experience Level: Home User Owned Product: 1-3 months
Rating: 4/5 Cheap, reliable, large capacity external storage. January 9, 2016 Easy to assemble and light weight. Since I installed an SSD ventilation and durability are not an issue. The SSD should be very long lasting, when compared to a rotting hard drive. Effectively I got a 100GB flash drive at a very competitive price. I plan so use it as the ultimate backup for photos, videos an other memories. The enclosure is light weight plastic, perfect for my needs, but not really durable.

I would recommend this item to a friend! This review is from DIY KIT: 100GB Intel 710 Series SSD + OWC Express USB 3.0/2.0 2.5" Enclosure.
