    For one of my 2012 MacBook Pro's, I am getting a SSD to replace the stock HDD. I would like to be able to use the stock HDD in a reliable and fast USB 3.0 enclosure. What is a decent recommended enclosure? Thanks!

    Do you want something portable or just works well?

    Some of the ~ $20 Rosewills are on sale at the moment.

    Thanks. I like the portable versions because they don't require a secondary power adapter. But fast/reliable is important of course. Certain brands/models seem to have mixed reviews on Amazon and Newegg. Looking at Sabrent, Mediasonic, OWC, and Rosewill. But if any others are better, would definitely look into as well.
