    I had high hopes for this drive. The reviews were great. The install of the drive in the enclosure was super easy and the sturdy foam in the enclosure holds the drive well. The issue is with the cable itself. The included cable causes the drive to disconnect when transferring data or even trying to read the drive. I used a USB-C cable I had and it worked perfectly. It’s not the drive. I did connect the same drive with a USB to SATA cable and it had no issues. I’m debating on keeping the enclosure and just purchasing a USB-C cable to use with it but it does suck the included cable does not work as intended.

    UPDATE:

    The company did reach out to me to resolve the issue. I had done my own research and discovered a USB-C cable the company sells with speeds that should match the enclosure and the company did send me the replacement cable for free. The new cable allows the enclosure to work as expected. I did bump the rating up to 3 stars. I don’t want to give the drive a perfect 5 since the supplied cable did not work though the company did do exceptionally well to rectify the issue! I don’t know if I’d buy the enclosure again due to the issue with the cable but the company does certainly care about customer service which isn’t seen often nowadays!

    I installed a 1TB Samsung 860 EVO SSD in this thing and was able to edit Raw 4K footage in Premiere Pro on a 2018 MacBook Pro with no problems. This thing was a snap to assemble. Not sure why anyone would buy a ready-made external drive when you can save like a hundred bucks and get yourself better performance by just pushing two easy parts together. No tools.

    I bought a USB-C to USB-C from UGREEN that is rated at 5Gbps and it works really well. The provided cable is ok but it will not reach its maximum speed. Put 4 stars because the USB-C to USB-C cable was not provided and I had to spend another £10.

    I use a 750GB MX300 SSD with the caddy for my Dell XPS 15 9570 since I only have 500GB on my laptop. I store games on it since a lot of the newer ones are 50GB+. There has been no slow downs or performance issues with playing my games off the external SSD.

    I have attached images comparing the speeds of the SSD when: it was in my PC (via SATA), connected to my laptop via the supplied USB-C to USB-A cable and connected to my laptop via USB-C to USB-C (bought separately). As you can see there isn’t much difference between connecting it internally and using a USB-C to USB-C. I was worried that the performance of the SSD might be bottlenecked by the caddy but it is not the case.

    Overall, I would recommend this to anyone looking to put an external SSD into it, just make sure you get a decent USB-C to USB-C that supports at least 5Gbps of file transfer.

    This is a nice enclosure and I would give it 5 starts if it came with a USB-C to USB-C cable. Otherwise it connects fast to my Mac. I would request you update that cable for those who want them because with my MacBook Pro I have to use an adapter to plug it in.

    Just as a background note, I work in IT and purchased this enclosure because I’ve upgraded to an NVME system drive so I now have a 1TB 2.5″ left over.

    This enclosure is excellent! It was simple to install, has a good material quality, and overall good build quality.

    The transfer rates are as expected; the product specifications state it can transfer a 1Gb file in 5 seconds, and this is accurate.

    Those that noted issues with the cabling may be correct, but I had no such issues thus far! All in all this will make a great external storage and virtual machine system drive.

    It sure was hard to get it open. This is good though…I know the cover won’t fall off. The SSD fits snugly between the rubber pads, so it won’t flop around. Windows detected the device as a USB device right away, and after formatting the SSD and assigning a drive letter to it, I was able to start performing backups to it. As you can see by the picture, I’m getting 563 MB/sec read and 519 MB/sec writes. A real world transfer of 171 GB worth of data showed a steady transfer rate of around 438 MB/sec on uncompressed and decrypted media files. Backups are super fast too. This device does it’s job.

    My old box can detect ADATA SU630 but this box can not!

    Update: After the review, Ugreen sent me the replacement one. Amazing customer service!
    It was my fault, the Ugreen box has a tight socket than the Sabrent one, I push harder and It works very well.
    It has 100MB/s read and write speed more than Sabrent one and very close to advertisement of ADATA SU630
    I get 397 MB/s for writing and 523.4 MB/s for reading on MacBook Pro.
    It slim, come with shock absorbent foam and hold the drive tight. Great!

    I had a big pile of extra laptop drives laying around, so I ordered two different UGreen housings, and two from another brand.

    They all worked great day 1.

    The next time I tried to use them NEITHER of the UGreen housings, which includes this one, would work with USB 3. If I moved it over to a USB 2 port, it worked fine. I thought maybe it’s the cable? If you know about USB 3 cables vs USB 2 you know that it can be wired for 2 perfectly and still have broken wires for 3, so yeah, different cables. I’m an IT guy, I usually have plenty of extra cables to play with. No amount of cable swapping mattered. In fact the cables in question were then tested on OTHER devices and had good USB 3 links, even the cables that came with the UGreen drives – so I have to say these drives come with reasonable cables, but the housings themselves are questionable.

    I was using my Linux desktop to test this. I then moved the drives to my Linux laptop, in case it was a driver issue, same story. I then moved the drives over to a Windows 10 laptop – in case it was serious kernel level driver issue. The Windows machine was just like the Linux ones. USB 2 worked, but not 3. In the case of the drive with the “Micro 3.0” connector it didn’t matter if I used just micro, or the Micro 3.0 cable, as long as I plugged it into a 2.0 port it worked. If I wanted to use a 3.0 port on the laptop I had to use a Micro 2.0 cable. In the case of the USB connector drive I just had to plug it into a 2.0 port – or use a “charge only” cable that’s technically a 2.0 cable wired to USB C – I wish they wouldn’t even make those….

    I will say I liked the general design of the housing and the simplicity of use. Too bad the electronics inside are junk.

    DO NOT RECOMMEND UGREEN

    This was one of the few enclosures I could find that supported:
    1. TRIM – ensures you get maximum life & performance from your SSD
    2. USAP – increases speed over USB 3.0 connections
    3. USB 3.1 Gen 2 – combined with USAP means this enclosure has a faster connection than most SSD drives available today need. It supports speeds up to 10Gbps whilst most SSD drives can only get to around 4-6Gbps, which is 500-750 MB/S – confusing I know as SSDs are all compared on MB/s (Megabyes per second) but USB standards are quoted in is Gbps (Gigabit per second) – TIP: if you want to find our the conversion for your SSD speed just google “mb/s to gbps” and you’ll get an online conversion tool.

    I’m getting real world speeds on my Samsung Evo 850 1TB drive connected to an iMac thunderbolt/USB 3.1 port of Sequential write of 456 MB/s and reads of 513 MB/s. The official specs for this drive are 520 MB/s write and 540 MB/s read but from what I understand from reading online reviews is you never get these speeds in real world situations.

    It’s great value for the price as I saw some enclosures that were 2x or 3x the price for the same spec. To make sure you get the best performance from the drive make sure you get a good quality USB 3.1 Gen 2 cable that can support the 10 Gbps speed and if you’re using a Mac then you will have to get your hands dirty with some simple Terminal commands to turn on TRIM or download one of the TRIM enabler tools available online.

    My only one criticism is the drive comes with a USB C to USB A connector but to hook it up to a fast USB C/thunderbolt port on a Mac you need USB C to USB C cable – would be great if they offered a different version with this cable like some of the competing drives, but it still works out good value if you add in the cost of a £10 USB cable.

    The device works with the included cable connected to the USB 3.0 Type-A port on my computer (5 Gbps). However, I purchased the enclosure to connect to my 10 Gbps USB-C port and access an external SSD at full SATA III bandwidth. Doing this requires a different cable (USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C to Type-C) for an additional $10-$12. For the combined price you might consider a SATA III to USB-C adapter instead. After buying a new cable SSD sequential read speeds increased by 100 MB/s (from 440 to 540 MB/s).

    As an aside, my unit did not include an extra pad for use with a 7mm thick drive.

    I currently have a Crucial M500 1Tb SSD in a Buffalo Thunderbolt enclosure. I get about 320MB/s transfer speeds to my Mac using that setup.

    On USB3 the Buffalo enclosure speed drops slightly, so I was expecting this UGREEN to be similar and certainly not match the Thunderbolt performance.

    However I’m stunned to say that with the SSD installed in this UGREEN enclosure, I was getting 420MB/s sustained speeds on a USB3 (Gen1 ie 5Gbps link) so clearly excellent.

    One down side from my perspective is that the cable supplied is USB-C (enclosure end) to USB-A. I was expecting USB-C at both ends so now have to source another cable. Not the end of the world but does add unexpected cost.

    BUT: when using this with a new Mac mini ie Gen2 USB3.1 (10Gbps) it was terrible. 15MB/s on the USB-C ports and unreliable / disconnects etc. on the USB-A ports. I was going to send it back, but then I bought a decent USB-C to USB-C cable and it absolutely flies with that – getting over 500MB/s sustained speeds.

    I can highly recommend this enclosure if you’re looking for something that will perform really well on USB 3.x and you’re willing to pay for a decent cable. However it’s a bit of a compatibility nightmare with the cable that’s included hence only 4 stars which is a shame as this is the fastest enclosure I’ve ever had, bar none, once you spend hours sorting through the cable problems!

    Mit Unterstützung von UASP erreicht meine SSD mit 495 MB/s Bestwerte.
    Maximal kann die Samsung 850 Pro 550 MB/s.

    Ganz wichtig sind die Kabel. Das beiliegende funktionierte bei mir einwandfrei.
    Das Gehäuse hat einen USB Typ C Anschluss.

    38 MB/s -> USB 2 Kabel Typ A oder C
    412 MB/s -> USB 3.1 Kabel Typ A
    495 MB/s -> USB 3.1 Kabel,Typ C

    Um das Optimum aus seiner Festplatte/SDD rauszukitzeln benötigt man daher:
    – Gehäuse mit UASP und USB 3.1
    – USB 3.1 Kabel, am besten USB Typ C auf Typ C
    – Kabel sollte min 5 GBit/s unterstützen, nicht 480 MBit/s!

    Ein Gehäuse (von Anker) ohne UASP lieferte nur 235 MB/s!

    With a SanDisk Ultra 3d 250GB SSD, and a (fairly pricey) Amazonbasics USB AtoC cable, I got a fairly good score (7994) with James A. Chambers’ benchmarking script, higher than other of the enclosures and adaptors I tried. I believe this is because the Pi had no trouble recognising the UASP potential of the SSD card. Moreover, I’ve had no trouble (so far) booting from the SSD, ie. without an SD card. I say “so far” because the Pi4 B is rather skittish about current draw at boot time, and (from bitter experience with other adaptors etc) I boot only from complete power-off, detaching from the power-supply (and with an backup SD card handy). On balance, I think the enclosure is excellent, and whatever doubts remain concern the Pi.
