Description

The S series

Akasa S series hard drive enclosures utilise cutting edge USB 3.0 technology and are designed to provide a high quality experience with Super Speed data management.

Super Speed

Super Speed USB 3.0 enables data transfer at 5 gigabits per second boosting enclosure performance up to 10 times that of their USB 2.0 predecessors. Super Speed interface can save you a lot of valuable time as you no longer need to wait so long to complete data transfer especially those large files like HD movies or system backups. Furthermore USB 3.0 enclosures remain fully backwardly compatible with USB 2.0 systems giving you great connection with millions of devices world wide.

Integral design

The Integral enclosure is distinguished by a Sleek glossy aluminium body. Our Integral logo on the front panel is illuminated Blue which indicates power on and data access, this gives the enclosure a touch of real style. The strong aluminium body with a high quality finish enables efficient heat dissipation and quiet operation. Integral is available in black or silver. Be smart, be Integral.

Caution re. Advanced Format
Reviewed by . Review Posted 12/07/2014
3 5

Leaving build quality aside (which makes value for money 3/5 at best), with the proliferation of Advanced Format (4K physical bytes per sector) drives on the market, particularly at the high performance end, buyers of this caddy should be aware it* is one of a number that DOES NOT CORRECTLY SUPPORT ADVANCED FORMAT. The consequences of this obviously depend how you use it, but typically you can successfully format the AF drive in the caddy, but when you try to read it, the drive appears raw. Someone called Ernie (I think) posted an issue probably caused by this on the Acronis forum and got multiple voodoo replies (the cause was not one of them). I found it thanks to the great guys at Macrium and the following excellent kb article: http://kb.macrium.com/KnowledgebaseArticle50193.aspx *Caveat: I have around half a dozen of these from Akasa, the newest bought around a year or so ago - so if they've fixed it since then, please post in reply and tell us. For now, I won't be buying any more.

  • Overall 3*
  • Ease of use 5*
  • Value for money 3*
