    StarTech S251BU31C3CB reviews

    USB 3.1 Type-C 2.5" SATA Drive Enclosure is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Trash It has tiny little screws that won't go in straight. Plus it wouldn't let my hard drive post. It just sat there doing nothing when I plugged it in. Worked fine without this case. I would have returned it had I not broken it. I should mention that it is very flimsy. Don't buy this. It's complete garbage.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for SSDs I ingest a lot of footage on the road and this unit works great with a MacBook Pro 2016 or newer with TB3/USB TYPE-C. I was getting xfer speeds of around 420MB/s on write and 440MB/s on read via the Blackmagic Disk Speed Test App

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I recommend this Enclosure for Type-C connection. PERFECT for mobile use. I like the way the cable is hidden. Now I can connect to my new laptop without using up a standard USB connector,
