    Akitio AK-SM3-U3JS-AKT1U Reviews

    SK-3501 U3 External Hard Drive Enclosure is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought two, would buy again Works well so far. I stumbled upon two hard drive that needed either an enclosure, or to be put in a bay. I just wanted them to have their own enclosures so I got two of these. Easy to install and looks nice. I'm glad that it raises the bottom off of the table/desk to help keep airflow. Would recommend!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I've bought a number of enclosures that were nothing more than junk but this is nicely designed and well made. I've got a few more in my cart right now.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I installed a large, 8 TB internal drive in this enclosure. Everything went smoothly right away and the drive is working properly since then. It's used as a backup for a PC core - drive C:\ and 2 internal drives.
