Knowing that most people who buy a USB 3.0 enclosure will use the more-powerful USB 3.0 port—or at least they will not use an old high-power drive—Eagle Tech skips the auxiliary power cable and instead adds a small Phillips screwdriver in its product bundle.
The inclusion of a screwdriver is a great idea, since many buyers won’t have one this small, and Eagle thinks adding a second top cover is also a great idea. Users can change the style of their device on a whim.
The ET-CS2FSU3-BK bottom cover appears to be made of die-formed, polished stainless steel. It’s far stiffer than aluminum of similar thickness, and is non-magnetic.
Eagle Tech’s interface card fits entirely within one end of the enclosure, screwing onto the plastic cover. Like the other drives in today’s comparison, it features the ASM1051 bridge for connections between USB 3.0 or USB 2.0 and SATA ports.
