This is enclosure is poorly made and badly designed
Unfortunately, you get what you pay for.Due to the design, it is difficult to insert the drive into the tray without bending the controller pcb. It is even more difficult to remove the drive.The usb 3.0 cable is only 18" - too short and not flexible at all. You will likely be forced to use a different cable.The micro usb 3.0 connector is poorly made, and didn't make good contact with the bundled cable from day 1.The drive connection to the computer frequently is lost as a result.Since there is no power switch, you are forced to plug/unplug it frequently, which leads to quick wear-and-tear on the poor quality connector and cable.

Great enclosure for the $$
Very good enclosure for the money. Built from solid aluminum and takes advantage of sata 3 speeds...So perfect for using with an ssd. The blue color accent is more appealing than other enclosures on the market. No issues, i'd recommend to anyone looking to diy an external hdd/ssd.

Terrific small size. Solid metal case. Blazing fast with ssd.
The orange gauntlet 4 is the same as the blue gauntlet 3 except that it comes with an extra usb c cable. The g4 has a white led light and g3 has a blue one. That's the only difference. It still has microusb 3.0 on the back of the device. This enclosure is barely larger than a 2.5" drive. You attach your drive to the plastic tray with the included 4 screws and tiny magnetic screwdriver. That tray then slides into the aluminum case and is secured with two more tiny screws on each side. Takes all of 5 minutes to install. The led is on the back, which i like (because it's not blasting your eyes with light). I was able to get nearly 500mb/sec read and writes with a samsung 850 evo 1tb ssd and usb 3.0. I'll gladly buy another one!

Great enclosure
Works well. Gets mildly warm, but nothing serious. Cable is short but feels tough.I've seen comments saying you'll have to bend the enclosure or hdd to fit it together. To avoid that, unscrew the board off and attach it to the hdd first, then place it in the enclosure.

Good ssd enclosure with usb 3.0 speed ... Just don't lose the damn screws!
This product does its job pretty well and with reasonable style. I use it for a high speed ssd drive to take advantage of as much usb 3.0 speed as possible. The included usb 3.0 cord is short (perhaps two feet) and uses the unique usb 3.0 device connection shape. In other words, you can't just go to your collection of standard usb 2.0 cords to find a longer one. I have a half dozen or so usb 3.0 devices and the throughput speeds on this thing are pretty impressive with and ssd, but i can't really say if this device is substantially better/faster than my other devices.It is a small gripe, but personally i hate screws for this kind of enclosure. There are two different sizes of tiny screws necessary to secure this unit ... 1)to secure the drive to the blue plastic tray that inserts into the aluminum body, and 2)to secure the blue plastic tray to the grey aluminum exterior. In my case, the two tiny screws for to secure the tray to the body rolled off the desk and into the great abyss of a shag carpet ... Never to be seen again. Sooo, my case has duct tape holding the blue tray to the aluminum body. Try not to lose those little buggers like i did!Otherwise the unit works well and doesn't get too warm (its only passive cooling).

I purchased this because i absolutely love my patriot magnum 256gb flash drive
Arrived and would not power up. My guess it had to do with the fact the usb connector going into the enclosure didn't sit flush (i.E., didn't make proper contact). I purchased this because i absolutely love my patriot magnum 256gb flash drive. I feel it is quality and well worth the money. Not so for this patriot product. I am disappointed guys. It is generally poor construction.I guess i will be trying another product.

Five stars
These worked out really well very great simple solution and very portable.
By Ludwig Brunet
Good product, best out there
Great case, i don't know why everyone is complaining about the case being goo tight/not having much room inside, it fit perfect for me it just takes patience and you wouldn't want a product that would leave something as valuable as a hard drive loose inside it so yeah. Overall i'd give it a 4 3/4 out of 5 because it does heat up sometimes and because of the aluminum it's exessive, not enough to burn you it just looks like it could use some better airflow through the case but this is definitely tell the best you can get right now for a case. As well before buying this make sure you know your harddrives type. This case is for sata hard drives, i know a couple people that didn't look into it and got the wrong case

Does exactly what it's suppose to do. It's nice quality too since it's made of metal and not cheap plastic. With a 5400rpm hdd on usb 3.0 i got r/w speeds of 100mb/s
