    The USB 3.0 performance is great. I need to upgrade my laptop with a USB 3 port, as I copy a lot of files between work machines and home. its painful sometimes.

    I would think most people have USB 3.0 ports by now? on kitguru anyway. The exclosure is good.

    The 3,5 enclosure is very nice. good price too. I dont think the 2.5 inch adapter is important. you wouldnt buy this for a 2.5 inch drive. But yeah a plate adapter would be handy.
