Personally, can't see the point in 3.5 nowadays. Yeah, cheap storage in your desktop/nas, but for portable storage? Nah, you'd be better off with nvme/2.5s.

This might be handy if you've got legacy stuff you need to mess around with.
I feel HDDS are too unreliable to be used as external mobile storage devices, I use SSDs for that. I paid for a 2 bay disk duplicator which I use as a backup box - I have 2 wd reds permanently in them to back up data (also have a 2 bay nas ) for automated backup. An external HDD is not a backup solution and I have had too many fail to use them on their own.

This will work as a game drive if it stays in a permanent stable fixed location although harddrives in their caddy work out considerably cheaper than buying the bare drives.

This supports both 2.5 and 3.5.

Yeah 2.5 are backward compatible with every 3.5 interface I've come across... But that extra wall wart would annoy me. :/
It seems to be a wierd fit: USB-C is mostly found on laptops and phones, but I don't imagine many people wanting something this bulky on one of those? As an external drive for a desktop it makes more sense, but unless you already have a spare drive ready to go in it - or need some ridiculously large capacity - you'd find it far cheaper (with a longer warranty to boot) just buying a 2.5" external drive off-the-shelf than buying this and then a drive to fit it.
I actually bought this enclosure a couple of weeks ago, and have been very happy with it so far. My 3.5 inch drive no longer fit into my new build, so rather than get rid of a perfectly good wd black drive, figured I would get some extra mileage out of it, while I save up for a couple of 2tb m.2. Some pros and cons below:

Pros:
1. This enclosure does block some of annoying hdd sounds, especially compared to standard external drive docks.
2. Usb-c was a nice inclusion since most motherboards now have a usb-c port on the back as standard, and mine wasn't doing anything. Does mean that it's something that I can plug directly into my laptop should I ever need to.
3. Usb 3.1 is "relatively" fast.
4. Looks nice for what it is, it's no Lacie drive enclosure, but it's inoffensive to the eyes.

Cons:
1. It's big, it's is not something I would call portable, and I wouldn't recommend using a mechanical drive as a portable drive anyway.
2. I would also not recommend keeping on your desk, as it is quite audible from even from 4 ft away. Surprising how much cases manage to dampen drive sounds.
3. The drive will occasionally fall asleep if it's not been in use for a little while. Could be a windows power management setting I need to toggle somewhere, not looked yet.

So what I would use this for and what I wouldn't - I wouldn't recommend using this a game drive or having applications installed on it, it's just not all that fast.

As a storage drive, for documents, pictures, movies, other "legally" downloaded content etc. it's ideal.

Also Ugreen is a quite a reputable manufacturer of stuff, their cables tend to be built to a good spec and aren't expensive.

Gotta agree ..3.5 drives and portability do not mix. Unless you are using some sort of padded or tuffened case. I bought and then dropped a 3.5 drive (when installing) quickest £90 I ever spent/wasted.
2.5 spinning drives are generally tougher, as they are assumed to go into laptops and be swung about a bit.
