What's great about this enclosure (and all USB 3.0 devices) is that it will work just fine when plugged into a USB 2.0 port. You won't experience the fastest possible speeds if you use USB 2.0, but it's still convenient to be able to use the enclosure on just about any modern PC.

 

PRODUCT COMPOSITION




The box has a cardboard slipcover that shows a photo of the product along with the features and specs. Inside the box, the enclosure is protected by thick foam blocks to minimize any possible damage during the shipping process. Current pricing on this unit is approximately $34 US.



Accessories include a power adapter, installation screws, instruction manual, USB 3.0 cable, and a stand for the enclosure. No hard drive is included, but that's typical for a product like this.
