Inateck USB3 2.5″ enclosure


I got an Inateck USB 3.0 2.5″ SATA III disk enclosure. I placed my OCZ SSD in there, and got the following Crystal Disk Mark results: ———————————————————————– CrystalDiskMark 5.0.2 x64 (C) 2007-2015 hiyohiyo Crystal Dew World : ———————————————————————– * MB/s = 1,000,000 bytes/s [SATA/600 = 600,000,000 bytes/s] * KB = 1000 bytes, KiB = […]
