(5 stars) Works great

By: xapim
Supports 5tb 2.5" hdd (the largest 2.5" hdd on the market) 2 partitions in MBR (due to mbr restrictions mbr doesn't support one single 5tb partition it will always force 2 patitions in large drives) or one single partition in GPT

(5 stars) Great enclosure

By: Jesse K
I bought this last week from Amazon, for a 15mm drive where the enclosure failed. I've purchased StarTech cables & adapters before, but this is the first one that motivated me to leave a review. It's solidly-built and lightning-fast on USB 3.1, I'm getting ~500MBp/s on a Seagate Freeplay. Decent enclosures of this size are tough to find, so just get this one :)
