Eagle Tech Consus ET-CS2FSU3-BK
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.

I know this isn't relevant, but what is in the pcie1 slot?Reply
You guys are really benching cases? I figured they'd all be close to the same anyway.Reply
SubSonix1I know this isn't relevant, but what is in the pcie1 slot?Reply
Nothing, the slot is covered by an extended chipset heat sink.
So basically, they all have identical hardware, and IMO all look uglyReply

You forgot to mention they all fit in a shirt pocket. That is the most important part.

Um.... few things,
1. They haven't been just covering the ipad. They been covering alot of other things.
2. This isn't news. This is a review. Learn the difference.
if ya think about it this is more cost effective per GB to buy one of these and a hard drive then buying a usb driveReply
Good... so I can share my pirated movies more faster?( sarcasm )Reply
What's the performance like if you use it with a hard drive? Just same as usb 2.0 I'd imagine? Odd that they're only hitting 35MB/sec with USB 2.0. It should go 60MB/sec. Why is this only half the speed?Reply
