Accented with chrome-colored end caps, Bytec’s HD6-SU3 is the only product in this comparison to use the classic bright-aluminum finish. The enclosure comes packed with a USB 3.0 cable to connect Type A to Micro Type B ports, an auxiliary power cable, and a carrying bag with an external cable pouch.
The HD6-SU3 activity LED is located on the opposite end of the drive from its interface connections, allowing the end cap logo to glow.
Back at the business end, we find the 5V power connector and Micro USB 3.0 jack. The power adapter makes sense when using older high-power drives on low-power USB 2.0 ports, but the use of energy-efficient drives and/or higher-power USB 3.0 jacks makes it unnecessary for most users.
A Phillips screwdriver is required to open the HD6-SU3, revealing the full-length circuit board required to place the activity LED at the opposite end of the drive. Four screws are included for installing the 2.5” drive of your choice.
