    I've had good experience with Orico brands. They have a nice form factor too. Available at Gilmore and in Abacus in Virra Mall.

    Just make sure the enclosure can do USB 3.0. Lazada has those Orico brands. If you go CDR King, yes, would be nice to try onsite. Some of their enclosures have double USB-A connectors to give enough power. But you can't do that on a Mac with the USB ports on opposite sites.
