  • Lately, I have been trying to test out SSD harddrive enclosure can integrated to a 3 port USB 3.0 hub into a v2.5” drive enclosure.

    The ORICO 2139U3 2.5” USB 3.0 drive enclosure is a cheap, fast, and unique solution for protecting your HDD’s and SSD’s on the go. As on the pricing is at around $10 - $14 USD.

    This enclosure supports the USB attached SCSI protocol and is using a Norelsys 1068X SATA bridge controller which allows the enclosure to achieve decent read and write speeds.

    The unit uses a micro-B interface and it does come with a micro-B to USB type A cable. Installing a drive into the enclosure takes less than thirty seconds. Just slide the back panel off, insert a 2.5” SATA SSD or HDD into the drive enclosure (up to 9.5mm in thickness), put the back panel back on, and plug it into your computer using the included USB cable. One small thing to note is that the enclosure does have a blue led light to let you know that it is on and it also has a red read/write indication light.

    One of my favorite thing about this enclosure is that it is manufactured entirely out of clear plastic. I know that might seem like a novelty to most people but it really different than the old school enclosures currently in the market.
