ORICO 2.5 Inch Transparent USB3.0 HDD/SSD Enclosure Review (2139U3)


Today we are going to look at a 2.5 inch drive enclosure from ORICO that brings something a little different to the table aesthetically speaking. As you can see, this drive enclosure is 100% transparent allowing anyone to see the HDD / SSD housed inside. On top of being somewhat unique, the ORICO 2139U3 is also easy to use and boasts decent speeds for a budget drive cage.

I forgot to mention this in the video: my test machine is a Lenovo T430 with 8GB of DDR3, USB 3.0 SS, a Quad core Intel I7 3612QM, and a 120GB ADATA SP550

  1. Micro USB? What the heck, is it year 2010 or some shit?
    Buy an SSD to show off to your friends? Is that what you kids do nowadays?

  2. I've got one of these, for a 2.5" SSD that I already had on hand. It works just fine. If you happen to have a drive like that lying around, then go for this one.

    (If I were starting from scratch, though, I'd get an M.2 module and put THAT into an aluminum enclosure, for some external storage just a little bit larger than a stick of gum.)

    Also: This thing is fine for an SSD, but I can't help but think it wouldn't be substantial enough as a reliable home for a mechanical hard drive.

  3. There is no ssd in my laptop so can I install games in a external ssd and play in my laptop??? I don't want to install games in my internal hdd.

  4. Столько бесполезной болтовни о кармане. Жесть. Заплатили не слабо, видимо)))

  5. @AA computers. Is this thing only for ssd drives? When i put a seagate 500GB Sata HDD drive, in then it dosent boot in the drive.The  blue led lights for a minute or so then goes out

  6. I dont recommend this at all. Bought it and sold it away.
    Once the HDD goes in, its almost impossible to get it out without forcing the hdd up, possibly damaging the connectors. Not good at all.

  7. I guess this is it, I was looking for a cheap and external USB 3.0 enclosure that is SATA 6Gbit/s compatible… many claim to be USB3.0 but they only run in SATA 3Gbit/s mode, which could bottleneck the SSD even further!
