S$5.60+ from Aliexpress last time abit cheaper, taobao should be cheaper if you willing to consolidate up to 1kg of hoots.
I won't be going for those china dubious brand. Not think their controller can last and enclosure strong enough to withstand drops right?.

Sian, why are all the cheaper mech keyboards red backlight. Kingston HyperX Alloy and Corsair Strafe both red, around $120 on Lazada.

The K70 Lux RGB at $168 seems like quite a good deal too, but the font is not that nice. Any suggestions?

Orico is also same model from one of the taobao enclosure oem lah just that our pricing passed thru 2 layers of middlemen potentially .

Have a flen who swapped out laptop's internal WD Black 500GB to 850 evo 2016 q1, so far ok except that shipping is 2-3 weeks via china post.

If there's satki discount locally bbbmtl.

Overall most should not require any driver or middleware installation, just plug and play. As long as it fits these criteria its quite a good enclosure liao.

Cause ultimately you're paying for the tiny usb to sata PCB at the tip of the enclosure (similar to external hdds). The rest of it is just a pure plastic or metal container.
