Seagate

Expansion Portable 2.5-inch SATA HDD Enclosure

Open Box | Original Drive Removed

Mac / PC / USB 3.0
Simple add-on storage that goes with you
The Seagate Expansion Portable hard drive offers an easy-to-use solution when you need to instantly add storage to your computer and take files on the go.
The easy-to-use storage solution
The Expansion portable hard drive installs easily by plugging in a single USB cord. Just install your own 2.5-inch SATA hard drive or SSD.
OWC Note: Due to how this unit is originally assembled, it is normal for some of the clips to be damaged/broken during the drive removal process. Even so, these enclosures still do go back together/re-close/re-assemble with little difficulty and without impact to actual technical functionality. OWC Warranty for this item covers the functionality of cable and the bridge component within the enclosure - not the physical condition of enclosure clips.

Rating: 5/5 Perfect, cheap HDD enclosure July 7, 2015 Works as it should. Cheapest USB 3.0 case I could find and it works great. Only thing I don't like is that there is nothing on the bottom of the enclosure to give it any grip and it tends to slide on the desk.

Rating: 4/5 Great value for money June 29, 2015 This item has but one flaw. When an unformatted disk is placed in the enclosure, it does not show up on the Mac, not even in Disk Utility. The disk needs to be formatted using another serial ATA to USB adapter/enclosure. When formatted and put back in this Seagate enclosure, everything works fine. It can even be reformatted and partitioned in any way you like. Considering the extreme low price, I would not not consider this to be a show stopper. As stated in the summary: Great value for money !!!!

Rating: 5/5 Awesome for the price May 12, 2015 These cases are an incredible value because a few of the enclosure clips are broken. Still, it's no problem to add a drive and close it up and it otherwise looks and acts like new. I have purchased many of these cases and they are probably the best bang for the buck you will ever find.

Rating: 5/5 Super deal March 8, 2015 I bought 5 of these. They come in the original box with parts bagged and the USB cable unopened. 3 of them had broken clips on the front end only, the other two had no broken clips. All the cases went back together without problems and all functioned properly.

Rating: 5/5 why pay more? February 18, 2015 this was made to seagate standards, which i consider very high as far as hard drives are concerned. it is very simple to put in your own sata hard drive, and keep it moving, whether you're upgrading to a new laptop drive, and want to keep the old drive, or you just want to make your own external, compact, portable drive. i guess someone wised up and realized that if you buy a portable drive and take out the internal hard drive it's cheaper than buying an internal replacement drive for a laptop. why is that?

in any event, you won't be dissapointed by this product. the design is inexpensively done, but by no means cheap comes with all the accessories you need to make a working external drive out of a laptop drive.

Rating: 5/5 Waste not, want not. February 16, 2015 This was exactly what I needed for the HD I pulled out of a dead laptop. I don't know how exactly OWC came to have this piece laying around, but it was cool that they were willing to sell it rather than throw it out and force me to buy new. That's better than recycling!

Rating: 2/5 Just okay, at best. January 5, 2015 Spend the extra cash and get an Express enclosure, You'll be happy you did. This unit is cheap and clumsy.

Rating: 5/5 Cheap and Effective! December 24, 2014 This USB 3 enclosure was priced very aggressively when I bought it, so low that there was no reason not to add one to my order, even though I didn't really need it. I just threw an old laptop drive in there to use as a spare drive. Everybody needs an extra disk drive now and then, right? It's all plastic and I could spend a minute wondering about its durability. OWC warns that the tabs that keep it closed up might not all be there because these have been disassembled and the original drives removed, but my copy came with all the internal tabs intact, and the enclosure sealed up exactly like it should. Works as advertised and very well.
