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.
Dean, South Africa. 3 July 2017
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!
Francois, South Africa. 10 July 2017
Great quality and easy to install the external hard drive!
Nick, South Africa. 13 April 2017

Beyond my expectations when it comes to quality and very quick and easy to set up.
Victor, South Africa. 23 May 2017
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.
kalpesh, South Africa. 1 June 2017
Very easy installation. Very good price. Works wonders.
Gerhard, South Africa. 20 October 2016
Enclosure works perfectly. Ports fit very solidly.
Rudolph, South Africa. 22 September 2017
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.
Chris, South Africa. 6 April 2017
For the price, I was quite surprised to find such nice packaging. The quality is really good and I'm a very happy buyer.

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.
excellent value ! better than agestar junk, South Africa. 9 February 2017
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
Kagisho, South Africa. 21 September 2017
Works great. I love it. Doesn't look like it would save my hard drive from a fall so I don't test it.
Nele, South Africa. 5 July 2017
works perfectly. thanks a lot for the fast delivery
Cliffy, South Africa. 4 August 2017
Very good product, very easy to use. Only gripe it should of come with a rubber cover to protect it if it falls.
Carol, South Africa. 28 July 2017
Great little box. Works as expected.
Maximus, South Africa. 9 August 2017
Had an extra ssd lying around and works ????????
Frederick, South Africa. 27 October 2016
Works great and looks quite stylish, ideal for home drive usage or on the go drive troubleshooting.
David, South Africa. 15 September 2017
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.
Dean, South Africa. 30 August 2017
Study, easy to assemble, more secure and snug fitting than my other 2,5' enclosure. slides and clips rather than screw together.
Gregory, South Africa. 18 July 2017
Great product for the price.
Ray, South Africa. 6 March 2017
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!
Etienne, South Africa. 20 February 2017
Quite Happy with this product for the price I payed ..
Umesh, South Africa. 2 June 2017
Very good product.
Brian, South Africa. 11 July 2017
Awesome product for price. bought 2!
Sharief, South Africa. 7 September 2017
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.
surendra, South Africa. 11 May 2017
Excellent product. Works on all capacity of HDD from 60 to 500 Gig. Plays well on my Hi-Fi, media player, car and computers.
Clinton, South Africa. 25 August 2017
i bought many of these, works 100%
Emile, South Africa. 13 March 2017
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.
Edward, South Africa. 16 June 2017
Sturdy, doesn't look or feel cheap. Easy to fit a hdd.
Kevin, South Africa. 18 February 2017
Works perfectly. No troubles what so ever.
Ezra, South Africa. 27 December 2016
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 .
Paolo, South Africa. 11 April 2017
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.
Andries, South Africa. 11 December 2017
+Good value for money.
-Plasticy and does not feel premium.
