Orico USB 3.0 2.5' Enclosure - Black
South Africa
Bundle deals expire when stock runs out. T&Cs apply

Nice enclosure for the money and it is tool free. It is very compact and light. A pouch or a bag with it would have been nice. Included USB3 cable is short, which for me is a plus.

This is a great enclosure. Probably the best 2.5" enclosure I've used. Dead simple to install the drive, and looks and feels great. No loose rattles.

Enclosure does a good job. Casing is made of a very light but sturdy plastic. Screwless, so no tools needed.

Works really well

Excellent quality would recommend using 7.5mm HDD. My hybrid 500gb hits 150mbps easily temp around 43 degrees after 500gb transfer. Comes with support pads which you can glue to inside of top cover to keep hdd in place.

always good products from this brand

The product was good value for money. However, the connecting USB3 data cable is about 54 cm long. A shorter cable would be more efficient at transferring data and less likely to freeze when connected to older USB 2 ports.

I had my doubts at first, not knowing anything about the brand. I needed to get my mother an External hard drive but paying R900+ for a 1TB got ridiculous. I bought a 1TB 2.5 HDD from a friend for R200 and decided to make an external for my mother.

Easy to install and no hassle. USB 3.0 works like it should, unlike most Toshiba externals that cap the transfer speeds for some reason no matter what I do. (always like 5mbps copy rate) But this little piece of plastic manages 300mbps and still hasn't gotten any slower. If you need a 2.5 enclosure cheap: Get this. Worth it for the price you pay!

Great quality and easy to install the external hard drive!

really easy to install with no tools needed

Excellent quality.
Extremely ease to insert a hdd.
Excellent value for money

Beyond my expectations when it comes to quality and very quick and easy to set up.

Great casing - couple it with the Orico 2.5' Portable Hard Drive Protector Bag and you're all set. Managed to recover old data from broken laptops. Transfers at great speeds.

Very easy installation. Very good price. Works wonders.

Enclosure works perfectly. Ports fit very solidly.

After two attempts at getting a proper enclosure, this one has proven to be better in every way than the other more expensive units. Gets my vote.

For the price, I was quite surprised to find such nice packaging. The quality is really good and I'm a very happy buyer.

Great quality product! Really easy to setup...

Easy to install hd.
Nice and firm plastic.
Fast usb3 transfer.

Great quality and value.


great product

Nifty little, compact and extremely easy to get it up and running. Best part. It's USB 3.0, yey

Great Product - Stylish exterior and easy to use and understand.
Highly recommend it.

I just got this enclosure today. When I read the other reviews before buying it, I thought it was too good to be true since there's no negatives mentioned. So here's my honest review after a few hours of use.
The HDD I am using in it was actually from a Packard Bell external, but the enclosure is malfunctioning. The HDD inside is a 9mm thick Samsung 1tb at 5400rpm. The Orico enclosure has a door that slides open so you can insert the HDD, but the sliding action is not smooth at all. Not a deal breaker though, since I'm not planning to swap out the HDD often. No tools required. The HDD is basically kept in place by the connector and walls of the enclosure. Maybe if you drop it, it might break loose from the connector, but the bigger issue would be whether the HDD survives. My HDD did rattle around the enclosure when shaken. Luckily they include 2 foam pads with adhesive on once side of each of them. I didn't need to stick the pads down, since I could just wedge it in there. So no rattles then. The sliding door of the enclosure clicks into place, but not really firmly which is an issue for me, because if it is in my bag with some other stuff that could potentially damage an exposed HDD, there's a chance that some movement might slide the door open. Then again the sliding action isn't smooth, so it probably won't just slide open if the door unclips. Maybe that was a design decision to protect the HDD should the clip not hold the door close. A short USB 3.0 cable is included.
Onto performance then. No issue plugging it in to the PC and it gets detected quickly. I copied a few big files to test the write speed. When the HDD was in my PC, I was averaging 98MB/s and in the enclosure through a USB 3.0 port, I got about 92MB/s average. I expected it to be a bit slower since it is on USB, but I am actually impressed that the difference it so low.
So do I recommended it? Absolutely, it is one of the cheapest 2.52" enclosures on Takealot, but it performs really well and the built quality is good, besides the issues I have with sliding door.

Best value for money enclosure and the design is very nice . Other enclosures that shops offer is rubbish and this is the cheapest where you'll find these cases

Proper enclosure, good quality for the money

Works great. I love it. Doesn't look like it would save my hard drive from a fall so I don't test it.

works perfectly. thanks a lot for the fast delivery

Very good product, very easy to use. Only gripe it should of come with a rubber cover to protect it if it falls.

Great little box. Works as expected.

Had an extra ssd lying around and works ????????

Works great and looks quite stylish, ideal for home drive usage or on the go drive troubleshooting.

Works as intended, metal case is a nice touch with a plastic slide cover. Achieved 90mb transfer on usb 3. Great for recycling hard drives from dead laptops provided the hard drive didnt fail.

Study, easy to assemble, more secure and snug fitting than my other 2,5' enclosure. slides and clips rather than screw together.

Great product for the price.

It is great. Gett the protector bag with it

Stunning quality at a low price. I thought this wasn't possible until I received my delivery. The quality of this enclosure is so much better than some more expensive enclosures I use. Bravo! Might buy some more of these soon!

Quite Happy with this product for the price I payed ..


Very good product.

Awesome product for price. bought 2!

Its a value for money enclosure, and as others have said, it's tool free - the cover slides off. A USB3 cable is included - about 50cm in length. I would also recommend getting the Orico 2.5' Portable Hard Drive Protector Bag.

Excellent product. Works on all capacity of HDD from 60 to 500 Gig. Plays well on my Hi-Fi, media player, car and computers.

i bought many of these, works 100%

Works just fine, except that when fitted with a hard drive it disconnects, because the drive does not fit snugly vertically into the casing. I fixed this problem with a piece of paper. It still is a good price and quality.

Sturdy, doesn't look or feel cheap. Easy to fit a hdd.

Works perfectly. No troubles what so ever.

This is a awesome product..really solid design and the matt finish on the outside feels very premium.#Thumbs up for a great product.Should have included a carry bag even if it was cheap looking .

Works as it says. No surprise. Easy to put my hard disk in. No need for additional power source. I retrieved the data from the disk without problem.

+Good value for money.
+USB 3
-Plasticy and does not feel premium.

Great enclosure; wonderful price

Great product. Easy to insert and remove harddrives. Good quality.

It's Just Great

Best enclosure so far, happy with the purchase.

Looks great. performs great. Definitely worth every cent.

It's nice and compact. I like it.

Very good value for money, haven't had any problems after 3 months of use.

Great Product...Quiet fast too

very power efficient compared to my older usb 2.0 drives, sleek design, write/read speed stays the same...depends on the drive inside i guess. very happy with my purchase

Just got mine today. perfect! the slider slides very well even after adding the two sponges. i am averaging speeds of 103MB/s which is incredible. very satisfied!!

Works perfectly. I was skeptical given the price but bought this as a quick way to pop a mechanical HDD I had from a laptop, to use as an Xbox external storage for games. It works great for that purpose, the cover is plastic and the screw less design is handy but might mean it detaches easily. That being said, it's a handy little product and we'll worth the buy. Reads the HDD at the full bus speed.

easy installation, very well put together.

Delivery was fast and product is good


works as it is supposed to. More than 6 months now and no problems at all.

Best Value for Money...

Works like a charm. Easy to insert the hdd. Plug n play. The LED is a pretty cool colour too. Well worth the money

Perfect exceeded what I was expecting. Love the easy open and close function and its a real usb 3.0 :)

Very happy with my purchase. easy to insall new drive in this case

As easy as it gets to install and use!

It works as promised.

The device is working perfectly.
