  • Orico HDD Docking Station Unboxing and Review

    For a techno-geek like me who likes hoarding my games, music and videos and treat them as keepsakes (yeah, no plans of deleting them), external hard-disk drives are just too expensive and they’re really not recommended if you just need storage space. It’s not like I need to always access them, after all. That’s why I was so keen on getting the Orico HDD Docking Station– I don’t have to open my PC and switch drives just to access my archived files anymore!

    I bought it at DynaQuest PC Eton Ortigas branch walk-in for P1,150. But as their web site advises, call the branch you’ll be paying a visit at first to check for stocks as other items are per order basis only.

    When I said more expensive, branded external HDDs like Western Digital and Seagate cost around P5,000 (huge 2TB that sometimes need power) to P6,000 (small-sized 2TB), compared to internal HDDs that only cost around P4,000 per 2TB. The initial hassle that comes with going for internal HDDs is that you have to constantly switch them if you have too many, since regular motherboards only have about five slots at an average. And this, my friends, is the solution to that.

    Here are the specs of the Orico HDD Docking Station 6619US3:

    • Super Speed USB3.0 5Gbps (compatible with USB2.0)
    • 2.5″, 3.5″ SATA3 and SSD Ready
    • Tool free, easy mount and dismount
    • 12v High Power AC Adapter
    • Double Foil Shielded and Twisted Paired USB 3.0 Cable
    • Built-in Power Control Switch
    • Plug & Play, no drivers needed
    • Windows, Mac and Linux Ready

     

    I’ve only used it seldomly for the months I’ve had it (usually only when a friend wants to copy an old anime I have), but so far so good. I like the fact that it’s already USB3.0 so data transfer is uber-fast, but it must be paired with a USB 3.0 slot on your PC. If not, it just switches to 2.0.

  • Review of ORICO 2139U3 hard drive enclosure

    1. It is a pity to discard the old objects

    Nowadays, there are always a few outdated old computers, as an old saying goes: it is tasteless to enjoy but a pity to discard. Even the so fast CPU in the last five years, now, the speed of it is so slow. Of course, most of time, we may meet the problem of the damage of its parts, such as the graphics or the main board. When the price for maintenance is higher than to buy a new one, it is natural to put them on the shelf. Although from the economic point of view, replacement is a good idea, but the computer that ever cost 5000 yuan, now it just worth less than 500yuan, in order to make use of the old objects, but we don’t know the surplus value, so the writer chose to dismantle them. And the pieces are hundred yuan, just the old hard drive left. Not that there are secrets inside, after all, we are not the popular person, just keep for a souvenir. After all, in the GB Era, it is better to hold a carrier for data storage.

    So, I started to search for a good place for the hard drive. Naturally, the writer wandered around Alibaba for a long time, and felt interested to the ORICO hard drive at a glance, the transparent design is so beautiful, and the price is cost-efficient, just cost 26.9yuan(but it is so surprising that after my purchase, the price of the product depreciated, just need 24.9yuan.)

    2. Light package

    The delivery man is not so tender, when he received ORICO 2139U3, he feel so surprised, this time, the ORICO seems to change the style, the original packing off, but only use the Kraft box for packaging.

    There is nothing special for the accessories, it owns what the general need to be possessed. A 3.0 data line with a suitable length of 50cm, no trouble or hasty.

    Choosing this hard drive box, expect for the cheap price, I am attracted by its transparent design. My first impression to it is very good, not heavy as the traditional hard drive, measurement is 125mm * 79mm * 13mm. The surface is coated with a protective film looks so crumpled, obviously, in order to see the true capacity, it need to "be taken off"

    The ORICO hard drive adapts ABS fireproof materials with high quality and can be seen in a full perspective, but it needs time to test if the nude surface is easy to be scratched. But if it turns to be scratched, then it is really a failure. The overall design feels exquisite, but is too thin, from the point of naked view, the overall design without buffer, the writer doesn’t know what will happen if it falls, and he has no courage to have a try.

    The art of transparency, actually, it is very attractive and will satisfy the peep of people, especially the seemingly high-tech digital products, this nude design will bring the full sense of science and technology. So, I purchased it without hesitation.

    Before purchasing, I noticed many net friends hesitate about the allocation problems of this hard drive, it seems that I don’t meet with this problem, may be due to the relationship between batches, there is no less for the solid capacitor, the circuit board without decoration seems to own distinctive flavor.

    On configuration aspect, we have nothing to demand about the so low price(around 20 yuan), NS1068X SATA to USB3.0 chip, despite the low-end product, it supports UASP protocol, different from traditional BOT protocol, the new USB Attached SCSI Protocol supports multiple instructions concurrent execute and NCQ queuing function which improve the transmission efficiency greatly. The hard drive enclosure which supports UASP technology can develop the performance of SSD better.

    As expected and without expectation

    Tool free is the characteristic of this hard drive, without any tools and techniques the product can be easily installed, improving the office efficiency greatly, as putting the elephants into refrigerator, just need several steps, open, loaded, closed.

    As for inserting, I believe that the experienced people is familiar with the steps. I discovered a problem that most of the hard drives are not completely consistent in specification, so in the face of the thickness of 7mm hard disk, without the help of cushion sponge, the hard drive in the box is not stable.

    Of course, most of the hard drives are suitable, and the Westdata WDC WD1200BEVS took down from the computer of the writer, with the history more than 15 years.

    Finally, make a brief introduction about its performance, because of this part has an important relationship with the hard drive itself, therefore, the data is only for reference, and I used the old hard drive whose port is the old SATA2 in test, now, SATA3 is the basic port, whose speed is twice as fast as SATA2 port. So we're just looking at the speed of reading and writing.

    When hard drive connected to the computer through USB3.0 port, the writing speed was about 42MB/S, and the reading speed was near 45MB/S, during working, it was very quiet, and the mute effect was very good.

    This is not a very gratifying achievement for USB3.0, there is even a little bit contrary to expectation, I thought the data that would be better. Of course, it is because there are various uncontrollable factors. In fact, the whole stability is good.

     

    To be brief, ORICO 2139U3 is a product with special appearance, adopting the mainstream plan of NS1068X, the performance is quite satisfactory, it will not bring too many surprises for you, but it will let you feel worthwhile of 20 yuan. Continuous level of reading and writing plays the basic properties of hard drive basically, meeting the demand of the old hard drive. In addition, I still want to say that it is very interesting for this transparent packing of “ORICO”, as for the people who have the idle 2.5 inch hard drive, it is worthwhile to spend this 20 yuan.

  • ORICO 2.5? USB 3.0 Hard Drive Enclosure Review 2588US3

    A PRETTY GOOD TOOL-LESS BUDGET DRIVE ENCLOSURE

    The ORICO toolless 2.5” USB 3.0 hard drive enclosure (2588US3) brings a great combination of price, performance, and quality to the table. Though it is not perfect, for $9.99 the enclosure does exactly what it was intended to do without making too many sacrifices along the way. By the end of my video review I concluded that ORICO produced a a highly functional drive enclosure with only one minor drawback.

    While unboxing the product the first thing I noticed was that the enclosure is entirely composed of plastic. It does flex slightly when force is applied to it from the hands but it will provide adequate protection to the drive housed within in the case of a fall. The included USB cable was of good quality, it was thick, the connectors were solid, and I believe it should last many years to come with moderate use. Also included in the package was a customer service card and a user manual.

    After playing around with the enclosure for 15 minutes there were several things I really liked about it right off the bat. My absolutely favorite thing about this particular case is how easy it is to swap out / install 2.5” drives thanks to its toolless design. Installing a hard drive takes about 30 seconds, just slide the back panel off, pop a drive in, replace the panel, and you are good to go. Another thing that I really like is the fact that since it is composed of plastic the enclosure is light yet surprisingly durable. I dropped the enclosure from heights of several feet, not a scratch was made to the case and the drive inside was left 100% intact. Finally the USB port is placed in an easy to access location and the blue LED Indication light is nice and bright. I am a big fan of practical yet simplistic designs, the ORICO enclosure embodies both of those traits.

    There is one minor drawback that I would like to address in this review. For the most part the drive is held securely inside the case. Though, if enough force is applied to the enclosure (i.e. from a drop) the internal drive can become dislodged from the SATA port and will no longer be properly recognized. This is an easy fix thanks to the toolless design, just pop the cover off and reseat the drive. This only happens in extreme use case situations but it is definitely something to note if you are considering buying this drive.

    After you install a SATA drive in the enclosure all you have to do is plug the drive into your PC using the provided USB cable and it should just work. I tested the drive with both Windows 7 and Xubuntu 16.04 (Linux) and it was plug and play with both operating systems. Once the enclosure is ready to go the blue standby light will turn on, when the drive is being written to or read from a red LED indicator will flash to let you know that the drive is being accessed. For a budget drive enclosure transfer speeds were good. I was getting read speeds of approx. 216MB/s and write speeds around 160MB/s from an SSD that could do up to 509MB/s read and 163MB/s write through a SATA III port. It’s not going to be able to saturate a USB 3.0 port but the speeds are definitely acceptable for an enclosure in this price range.

    Drive speeds through SATA III

    Speeds through the enclosure

    This is a great budget drive enclosure which provides easy accessibility, good quality, and decent read and write speeds for a very good price. I am definitely putting this product on the list of enclosures I would buy if I ever need another one!

  • Orico 10,000 mAh USB Type-C battery

    unboxed:

    specs:

    charging speed:

    cosmetic blemish:

    It is a great size. It is slightly narrower and shorter than the 6P itself, so fitting it into my pocket isn't a problem. As long as your pocket is big enough for the 6P, it will be big enough for the battery. The battery is also very thin compared to the beasts coming from Anker, Talentcell, RAVpower, and Choetech.

    The USB Type-C port is rated for 2.4A, not 3.0A. Ampere suggests that it really is capable of 2.4A on the Type-C port. It reports ~2600 mA on the battery vs ~2900 mA on the stock Google charger. Of course 3.0A would be nicer than 2.4A, but I'm willing to deal with a small drop in charging speed in exchange for the extremely small size and great portability of this battery. Keep in mind that the 6P really only charges at 3.0A up to ~35% charge, and from there it quickly drops to slower speeds. So the difference in charging speed from 0% to 100% is probably only about 15 minutes.

    The chassis of the battery is made of aluminum and actually looks quite good. Mine did come with a slight blemish on the surface, which can be seen in the last photo, but it doesn't bother me. The chassis is also resistant to fingerprints. The aluminum is slightly textured/rough, just like the 6P's chassis. It has a "premium" look and feel.

    It charged my 6P about two full charges before dying itself.

    You can charge the Orico battery using the Type-C port or a micro B port. The Type-C port is capable of both charging and discharging, which is nice and convenient.

    I bought this product with 0 Amazon reviews from a company I've never heard of before with low expectations, but it actually seems like a very good product. The greatest thing about it is the size and portability. The size is just perfect for me. I was originally quite disappointed when Anker cancelled their 10,050 mAh Type-C battery, but this Orico's form factor is so much better. The Anker, had it made it to maker, would have been wider than the phone and much thicker than the Orico. The Orico, by stretching out it's length and width to be just shorter than the 6P's, is able to make the device as thin as possible, making it so much more portable and less clumsy than the Anker would have been. I highly recommend this one.
