    OWC / Other World Computing OWCME3QHKIT0GB reviews

    Mercury Elite Pro USB 3.0 Hard Drive Enclosure is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best enclosure for older and newer MAC's I bought one of these 7 years ago and its still going strong with no HD damage. The Oxford chip in these enables them to work smooth. Bought this one to run parallel with the old one through firewire and it works like a charm. These are built to last.
