The Yottamaster USB C external drive enclosure is a tool-less SSD/2.5″ HD external enclosure that allows you to bring your ultra high speed SSD along, or use it as storage for your gaming system.

There are no tools required to open and close the housing, and nothing to screw the drive into, however they include a couple of drive coozies to make sure the drive doesn’t jiggle around in there.

The upper limits are listed at 5gb and 2TB respectively which is in line for products I can find on Amazon within 1.5x the price range. It doesn’t boast the higher bandwidth of 10gb that you find in the $21 range, but it’s coming in at $9.99 so you get what you’re paying for.

I’d pay attention more to the 2TB drive limit and less to the 5gb/ps rating as SSDs drives are about to explode in size and lower in price, however I don’t think the majority of people are going to notice all that much of a difference between the 5gb and the 10gb speeds when most USB 3 ports are doing 5gbs and most consumer SSDs are doing 6gbps.

So, for $9.99, for use as quick storage for a gaming system, it’s perfect. (PS4 has a USB 3.1/5gb connection, XBOX One appears to be USB 3.0/5gb). If you’re looking for higher end video editing or such, you’ll probably feel a little let down at the ~600megabyte per second speeds and the 2TB limits.

Pricewise, great, get it. Performance – perfect for gaming systems of the current era, drive size limitation may get you in a few years.

The Yottamaster toolless external 2.5″ hard drive enclosure is available from Amazon for $9.99.
