It comes in pretty standard packaging with some basic information on the box, a user manual, and mounting hardware.
The enclosure itself has a nice brushed aluminum finish with a black plastic border. The only labeling is on the front with some identification information as well as a QR code that you can scan to get the full specs which I thought was neat.
To install the mSATA drive you simply remove the bottom cover, slide the drive into place, screw it down with the included screws, and screw the bottom cover back on. With everything bolted down it feels solid and nothing rattles around. The overall weight is about the same as a standard 2.5″ SSD.
As you can tell by just looking the the near-bare PCB, this enclosure is nothing more than a pass-through to let standard SATA cables work with your mSATA drive. Because there is no converters, the speed of the drive won’t be bottlenecked.
