Archgon MH-2615 and MH-2624
The Archgon MH-2615 Heaven and MH-2624 Stargate enclosures are not only beautiful to look at with their sleek lines and piano black finishes, but the performance potential with USB 3.0 can be impressive. This would certainly be the case with an SSD, but a 5400 RPM notebook drive is rather handicapped.
The tool less features on both enclosures work great and make your installation a breeze, and both power up with a soft blue ready light. If I had to nitpick about anything it would be the the USB cable provided could have been a little longer to facilitate plugging it into your I/O port on the motherboard, as most older cases do not have USB 3.0 up front yet and a longer cable will ensure plugging it in at the rear of your computer and give you plenty of slack to move it to your desktop.
The Archgon MH-2615 Heaven lists for $30, which is a pretty good value. The MH-2624 Stargate has limited availability in North America at the time of publication, so we can’t fully comment on the value posed here. However, we do love the versatility of the Stargate, able to connect various types of drives for excellent portability and conectivity.
We reserve final judgement due to lack of availability, but both the Archgon MH-2615 Heaven and MH-2624 Stargate are both good drive enclosures for 2.5" portability and flexible connectivity for users on the go.
