Tyron, South Africa. 31 October 2016

At this price you cannot get a better enclosure. Sure, it's lightweight plastic, but it's really simple to install and it holds the drive really snugly. I tried another brand that was made of metal and it was terrible: usb plug kept falling out, clips holding the drive kept coming loose. But there is none of that with this Orico enclose. Clips tight, feels solid.

Riaan, South Africa. 9 June 2017

quick and easy

Christo, South Africa. 21 September 2016

Not the highest quality, but cheap. It works and is lightweight. No complaints.

Felix, South Africa. 22 January 2017

For a cheap enclosure, I like it. I am not getting real USB3 data transfer rates, but definitely much faster than USB2. Plastic feels sturdy enough. The outer case has a velvety/suede feel to it that shows up marks easy.

Dirk, South Africa. 5 April 2017

A very nice easy to use enclosure

Earvine, South Africa. 16 September 2017

Excellent screwless design

Niresh, South Africa. 2 March 2017

Excellent product. Thanks.

Gideon, South Africa. 26 July 2017

Cheapest USB3 Enclosure I could find, and does the job as good as any I have seen. Look no further.

Murray, South Africa. 24 August 2017

This device does not seem to work on all USB ports. It does say USB 3.0 but other cheaper devices will work other type of ports. Once it is working it works well and is easy to use and looks good. I would recommend this enclosure and will buy it again if the need arises.

Hein, South Africa. 1 May 2017

Quick and easy to insert drive.
Made of plastic, so the enclosure won't survive a fall...but that's not supposed to happen anyway...right!?

Billy, South Africa. 1 November 2016

Much better quality than expected. Good quality materials and very easy to install HDD. Will buy another one of these without hesitation.

Jonathan, South Africa. 18 October 2017

Easy to install, solid and works well. Also great that it is USB3.

My old laptop crashed, so I took the hdd out and installed it into one of these - easy to recover my old files and useful as an external hdd after I was done with that.

Nischal, South Africa. 19 September 2017

Great product & excellent service from Takealot as usual!

Jennifer, South Africa. 10 April 2017

At this price, what you see is what you get. Works great!

Vincent, South Africa. 14 December 2016

Great little Enclosure works great I have both the 2.5' and 3.5" both work great and product does work as described.

Ed, South Africa. 25 January 2017

Works as expected, and I love the feel of the case. Drive is fast and was a breeze to fit.

Camilla, South Africa. 27 August 2017

Great product. Easy to open and close.

Anthony, South Africa. 20 June 2017

After initial HDD failure was able to fix and repair laptop drive using enclosure and was then able to clone HDD to SSD drive using the same enclosure. Awesome.

shurvir, South Africa. 29 November 2016

Easy to use and highly convenient. The case has a nice look and feel as well.

Paul, South Africa. 6 June 2017

Good product. Works well.

Riaan, South Africa. 16 November 2017

Great value for money. Cheapest USB 3 enclosure I could find on Takealot at the time and while not the best quality the quality is definitely good. I use mine daily and haven't had any issues so far.

Judd, South Africa. 17 May 2017

Great product for the price. Reliable and easy to setup.

Sean, South Africa. 29 November 2016

Very useful little enclosure.
Easy access to install HDD/SSD and needs no additional power.

Worth the money - I'm getting another one soon ! :-)

Hugo, South Africa. 20 December 2016

Good value for money and a solid no fuss product.

Mark, South Africa. 6 July 2017

Great product!

Eduard Cornelius, South Africa. 27 March 2017

Works like a charm. USB 3 transfer rate is quite good and the unit looks good as well. Comes with two pieces of foam rubber spacers to ensure a good fit.

Andrea, South Africa. 27 June 2017

SO user friendly! Great not needing to worry about tiny screws! Feels amazing too - lovely casing and so compact!

Gregory, South Africa. 4 December 2017

Cheap and cheerful. Easy to use, no need for tools. A bit on the plastic side so use a protective case to protect it. Don't think it will take being squashed in a laptop bag too well.

Barry, South Africa. 31 October 2017

This is what an enclosure should be. Simple. No screws, no unnecessary parts, just slide open and insert. The build feels very solid and well constructed and materials are good quality. USB cable included in the box.

Petrus J., South Africa. 15 November 2016

This is a great enclosure for the price!

Bear in mind that it is not made to change disks repeatedly, since removing a disk from the enclosure puts strain on the gold contacts. Thus, it isn't the ideal tool for servicing hard drives. That said, I had to change disks about 20 times to get my SSD working and I had no issues. That should be adequate for most users.

Ludwick, South Africa. 18 July 2017

Best enclosure I've ever bought. Just awesomely convenient mechanism for hot-swapping hard drives

Eggie, South Africa. 20 November 2017

5 Stars for its functionality vs low cost.
Neat & compact.
Works well, first time.
Love it.

Antonius, South Africa. 10 November 2017

Good performance for it's price.

Simon, South Africa. 11 August 2017

Brilliant little enclosure. but doesnt connect to my TV where the WD enclosure does.

Brian, South Africa. 11 July 2017

Awesome product for price!

Jess, South Africa. 13 December 2016

Used this enclosure to clone my Macbook Pro Mid 2012 hard drive onto a Crucial SSD and it all went without a hitch. Very impressed with the quality for a relatively inexpensive enclosure. I would highly recommend it.

Graeme, South Africa. 24 February 2017

Works well, not bulky, nice price, USB3.0!

Youshen, South Africa. 6 September 2017


kelvin, South Africa. 25 January 2017

quality product for a very good price.

Ugan, South Africa. 13 July 2017

Lightweight case.
USB3.0 interface so transfer speeds are fast.
Screwless design is efficient.
Foam pads are supplied. When applied, keeps the inserted hard drive tightly fitted.

Only drawback is the slightly flimsy plastic.

Pierre-Alain, South Africa. 3 August 2017

Does the job for a fair price.

gundo, South Africa. 11 October 2017

Great product and speedy service.

Eliot, South Africa. 28 July 2017

Ordered Thursday 27 July 2017 @ 3pm, got it the following day at 1230pm (based in Johannesburg). Product looks just as in the images, comes with cable too. Simple and straightforward product.

Jewel, South Africa. 6 October 2016

No screws! Very nice.

Compact plug-and-go, South Africa. 1 July 2017

Very easy to use. I like the fact that it does not need an external power supply.

Durgesh, South Africa. 6 February 2017

Value for Money (VFM)

Devon, South Africa. 30 September 2016

Looks and feels great. Performs great. Value for money.

Gerhard, South Africa. 19 October 2016

1st time using it. love it! will recommend to anyone

Dolezar, South Africa. 11 August 2017

Works as expected

Justin, South Africa. 3 November 2017

Good product.... but enclosure does'nt close properly, as my ext hdd sticks out

David, South Africa. 19 May 2017

great value for money

Shaun, South Africa. 31 January 2017

Ridiculously simple installation and does the job. What's not to like about this case.

Jaryn Tyler, South Africa. 25 September 2017

This is actually a really well made enclosure for any 2.5 inch HDD. At this price I was concerned about quality issues but I'm glad to report there are none. Includes a USB 3.0 data cable. Transfer speeds are consistent and after extended, the enclosure does not overheat.

Myells, South Africa. 13 August 2017

Perfect, Works as expected.

Juanre, South Africa. 15 August 2017

Good product, just concerned that the HDD sounds a bit loose when moving it around.
