Akitio Neutrino U3+ USB 3.0 Hard Drive Enclosure Review

Akitio has come out with the Neutrino U3+ a stylish 2.5 Sata HDD enclosure that supports  bus powered USB 3.0 or Firewire 800. The all Aluminum casing with heat sink guarantees your drive will not overheat. The best part is multiple drives can be daisy chained together using the firewire ports. Priced at $79.00 this is one of the lowest priced USB 3.0 Hard Drive Enclosures on the market.

The drive can fall back to USB 2.0 if needed. The package includes a USB 3.0 cable, Firewire 800 cable, enclosure minus hard drive, power adapter for when you are unable to take advantage of Bus Power. The enclosure itself is brushed aluminum to match mac body design.

This is the third product from Akitio that I have reviewed, and I am always surprised by the quality of the product.
