Ultra lightweight enclosure works with standard 2.5″ hard drives.

Sabrent USB 2.0 Shockproof Hard Drive Enclosure Review 3The Sabrent 2.5” SSD & SATA Hard Drive USB 2.0 Enclosure is an excellent-looking, ruggedized and compact USB external drive enclosure. What I like the most about this drive enclosure is the addition of a rubberized rugged wrap that surrounds the aluminum hard drive container. This gives the drive additional protection during transport, while also making the drive look more premium. For those familiar with the Lacie rugged series of drives with the orange rubber wrap, it’s like that only black.

Sabrent USB 2.0 Shockproof Hard Drive Enclosure Review 4The drive kit comes with everything you need except a 2.5” hard drive. A small screwdriver is included to help with the drive install. The unit looks and feels nice with or without adding the rubber shell. The construction is solid and all of the machined parts are smooth. I have never had a negative experience with a Sabrent product, so this was no surprise to me.

Sabrent USB 2.0 Shockproof Hard Drive Enclosure Review 5The only thing I dislike about this enclosure, is that it only supports USB 2.0. However, if that is not an issue for your usage scenario, then you are not likely to find a better enclosure at it’s current price point.
