          Drive worked out of box as advertised. Unfortunately, it died for no apparent reason 2 weeks after I first used it.

          Wouldn't Buy Again

          About Me Heavy Duty User

          Verified Buyer

          Pros

          • Works in Linux

          Cons

          • Not reliable in Windows

          Best Uses

            Comments about Sabrent EC-3US25 USB 3.0 to 2.5" SATA Aluminum Hard Drive Enclosure:

            I bought this to hold a 240 MB/sec SSD drive. I run virtual machines off of the SSD drive over USB 3.

            Using Windows 7, I get a max read speed of 140 MB/sec. Using Linux, I get a max read speed of 240 MB/sec. This is on the same computer.

            Lately, in windows, I have problems with the drive randomly disconnecting and corrupting my data. And, sometimes I get a warning from windows implying that it is connecting at USB 2.0 speeds and not USB 3.0 speeds. I finally moved my SSD drive to a different external case, and the problem go away entirely (on the same Windows laptop).

            The case itself is nice, except that the USB cable sticks out part way. It would be really nice if this case were reliable and fast in Windows.
