MaPower Warps MAP-KC31U2G: Flashy Design

The MaPower Warps MAP-KC31U2G is a purely USB 2.0 enclosure for 3.5" hard drives. Despite the fact that it is made of aluminum, it still tips the scales at 530 g. We recorded USB transfer rate at 24 MB/s, which is not a bad score. In addition to the brief users guide, a USB A-B cable is also included.
