Rated 5 out of 5 by from When I installed a solid state drive into my MacBook, I put the old hard drive into the Probox and used Carbon Copy Cloner to migrate all my data across. Installation was straight forward and data migration worked without a hitch. My only negative comment is that you can’t see the LED indicator if the enclosure is left in its carrying case.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from will not work I purchased this to use with a new 1TB drive to back up photo's etc. If i put this drive into the Probox it asks to format the drive to only a 118GB size!!!! no idea, if i then plug this same drive into my old sata cables it tells me its 931GB which it correct. So the probox is on its way to the bin. If i could find the receipt i'd return it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product. Best usb3 external case I've had. Good build quality (heat conductive and dissipating aluminum) at a very affordable price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I have been unable to get this to work with Windows 7 SP1 (x64) and Intel® USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller Driver (any version). My motherboard supports USB 3.0, however any attemp to copy to this USB 3.0 cause a copy freeze. The device has to be unplugged before explorer can be used again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from SATA connector does not last! I've had this enclosure acouple of months and the external cady and leatherette case are ready nice, burnished, sturdy and looks good quality but either the cable, the cable connector or the drive connector has failed very quickly and this is just a cheap poor quality issue I'm afraid! I have to bend and hold the connector in one hand to make it work and it's very flakey which is not good for 500gb data transfer :-(

I was sold this item in Maplin in order to support my original SSD while installing a new (larger) one into my Asus ZenBook UX305 (Windows 10). But there are absolutely no instructions anywhere to be found! Please advise.
