There is not a whole lot to say about the Abrent Ultra Slim External Hard Drive; this external hard drive enclosure turns any SATA 2.5 inch hard drive into a USB external hard drive. The external enclosure sells for $6.99 on Amazon, so I wasn’t expecting a whole lot from it, so I was pleasantly surprised when it arrived in the mail.
With something as cheap as $6.99 you expect an item that will get you through the month or even a week for that matter. No so with this external enclosure!
The case was nice and firm, not flimsy, I could squeeze it in my hands and couldn’t make it compress on the hard drive. The cables that come with the enclosure were also pretty high quality! Installation is very simple and straightforward.
Speeds on this drive are limited to USB 2.0, but if you are putting a 500gb hard drive into the computer, the added speed of USB 3.0 wasn’t missed very much. I was able to take an old 500gb hard drive I had laying around the shop and easily make an external hard drive that I can now use for customer data/my own data. I was thinking that it would make a great time machine backup disk for my Mac!
Overall this is a great purchase, one I will happily make over and over again, if you are looking to purchase an external enclosure, this is hands down the best one for the money!
