    OWC / Other World Computing OWCMR3UKIT reviews

    Mercury Pro Enclosure for 5.25" Optical Drive is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastically engineered enclosure What a marvellously engineered enclosure. Every part of this enclosure screams quality. The board that has the SATA to USB3.1 adapter is very well seated and screwed into the enclosure. The wires are installed very nicely and connect to the attached drive very easily. Packaging is top notch too and every item including the enclosed screws with rubber washers on the enclosure box to the raised rounded feet that screw into the enclosure is well thought of. My LG BluRay writer is safely enclosed in this enclosure and the provided USB3.1 cable and power supply is of very high quality too. Drive was installed without any hiccups and was easily mounted on both my Windows 10 laptop as well as my High Sierra iMac. Extremely happy with my purchase as as usual B&H delivered it on time!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Crafted This enclosure is built with quality. Solid aluminum with every thing you need to convert your old 5.25" optical drive to a useful peripheral device on a new build (where most modern cases do not have an optical drive bay). I'm using this as an add on to my new build (a Thermaltake Core P3 chassis). Worked great right out of the box).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Solid, Speedy Choice The solid metal construction, quality feet, and USB 3.1 Gen 1 connectivity mean this enclosure does everything I need with no downsides, so far. I have a LG WH16NS40 drive in mine, which fits with room to spare. Potential nitpicks are the front panel, which is thin and can bend easily if you're not careful when installing the drive. The padding inside the enclosure is limited to the front end, with nothing supporting the back of the drive, but this hasn't caused any extra noise or vibration for me yet. I would love to see future models support a USB Type C connection for power and data combined, but I know that configuration is not quite ubiquitous yet. All in all, my nitpicks are only nitpicks, and I really don't have anything negative to say about this enclosure.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from works better than it looks. this is not the slickest case, but it works well. �I use it to add DVD and Blu-ray drives to an iMac via USB3.
