Screw-less design for quick & easy installation.
If a solid state disk (SSD) purchase is in your future and you plan on using it inside a desktop PC, a product such as this is quite handy - if not almost a necessity.
The packaging shows off some pictures of the product as well as a listing of the features and specs. The blister packaging can be a pain to get open so make sure to have a pair of scissors handy.
In addition to the enclosure, four mounting screws and an instruction manual are also included. There is no software or anything to worry about; everything is plug-and-play.
PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH
The enclosure has a simple design with plastic construction. It is almost exactly the same size as a 3.5” hard drive so it can also be used inside many external enclosures. Mounting holes are located on each side that makes installation easy in just about any PC case.
Two indentations and some arrows show how to remove the lid. Pressing down slightly and sliding the lid forward releases it.
