4 out of 5 eggsORICO 6 month update

This review is from: ORICO 3519SUS3-BK Aluminum Alloy HDD External Enclosure with E-SATA and USB3.0 Interface

Pros: Quality construction
(Almost) Tool-less design
Front panel power switch

Cons: The fan.

Other Thoughts: Well having bought 2 ORICO enclosures back in March I can be pretty certain of its biggest fault: the fan. After contacting ORICO support they were nice enough to send me replacement fans, but those too had problems (the screw holes were too small). So a quick tip for those looking to fix this problem: the Noctua NF-A4x10 FLX. It's a 40mm fan that allows you to adapt the existing 2 pin power connector to the Noctua's 3 pin connector. While the ORICO itself is not without faults, at present I still think it's hard to beat for a single bay enclosure.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Enclosure

This review is from: ORICO 3519SUS3-BK Aluminum Alloy HDD External Enclosure with E-SATA and USB3.0 Interface

Pros: This is my second enclosure of this model from ORICO.
It's not just fun to say, but fun to use too!
I purchased this to eliminate the many steps you have to go through to change drives in other enclosures. Excellent product! Screw it in, slide it in, turn it on! (I'm pretty sure we are still talking about the enclosure)
Will buy again.

Cons: Taxes, Death, Politicans - but the product is great!

Other Thoughts: The process above works backwards too.

2 out of 5 eggsDecent, but not Good

This review is from: ORICO 3519SUS3-BK Aluminum Alloy HDD External Enclosure with E-SATA and USB3.0 Interface

Pros: Decent price (@ $39.99), reasonably durable construction, tool-less design.

Cons: NOISY! Good grief... even at idle, the fan buzzes and creates a harmonic vibration in the case that makes it pretty much intolerable to have this thing sitting on your desk for any length of time. The fact that it has a fairly short (1m, tops) USB cable (which is of decent quality) makes it impossible to hide somewhere to try to make it less obtrusive.
Also, when trying to slide the HD tray back into place, one of the screws that holds a plastic guide to the tray fell out, and rattled around in the case. When I pulled it back apart and put the screw back in, I found it had already been stripped out. The sheet-metal in the tray is simply too thin for the screws to thread into, and both of them will not tighten. I simply put the screw back, snugging it so it would stay in place, and gingerly re-inserted the drive tray. So far, it's staying in place, but I expect it'll fall out again, what with the vibration from the fan.

Other Thoughts: Since I'm using this device as extra 'server' space (with a 3TB WD Red drive) and not simply backup storage, it is simply too loud for day-to-day use. If it was a backup-only solution, it would be tolerable, I suppose.

4 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: ORICO 3519SUS3-BK Aluminum Alloy HDD External Enclosure with E-SATA and USB3.0 Interface

Pros: Very well designed and well constructed case. Feels absolutely solid, easy to switch out the drive, and it looks very sleek on my desk.

Cons: The fan is pretty loud, and too small to make much of a difference. Cooling isn't really needed for the hard drive I have in there, so I just leave it turned off. I don't see it as a big issue.

1 out of 5 eggsFailed within one day!

This review is from: ORICO 3519SUS3-BK Aluminum Alloy HDD External Enclosure with E-SATA and USB3.0 Interface

Pros: Nice outer construction. Easy to insert hard drives.

Cons: This unit is very noisy with the fan turned on. As a result, it's totally useless as a desktop drive. It failed less than one day after I received it. The included instructions are written in very bad English.

Other Thoughts: DO NOT BUY THIS ENCLOSURE!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat External Enclosure

This review is from: ORICO 3519SUS3-BK Aluminum Alloy HDD External Enclosure with E-SATA and USB3.0 Interface

Pros: Heavy Construction and unit will not slide. Tool less design and works great. Like the Aluminum construction. I had purchased the silver usb,firewire version before and loved it so I bought these black versions and they work great. It appears they made some improvements with the design. The fan can now be controlled by a switch. No more Aluminum with holes beneath the hard drive, just an open section which should allow the heat to dissipate faster. Solid device and works great with SATA 1TB and 2TB drives. Have not tried 3 TB yet.

Cons: The 3.3ft USB cable is still short. Would have like it if Orico made them longer. Same for the eSATA cable. 6ft is typically the standard for cable lengths especially if you are connecting external enclosures. A little pricey. Still not sure if the fan sucks the heat out or blows in air from the back. I wish they designed the internal cooling a bit better. Make paths or something for the fan to reach the hard drive. The SATA connector in the back is blocking most of the air.

Other Thoughts: If you want a high quality external HDD enclosure I would recommend you give Orico a try. I did and still love these devices even with the cooling fan minor issues.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat case... except for sleep

This review is from: ORICO 3519SUS3-BK Aluminum Alloy HDD External Enclosure with E-SATA and USB3.0 Interface

Pros: These are some of the best physical designs of hard drive cases I've encountered since Kingston stopped making cases. From the large feet, flat and squat and sturdy, to the well placed ventilation holes, to the tool-less drive carrier that can be easily converted to a normal drive carrier by removing two screws, to the variable speed fan that only spins as fast as it needs to, these seem excellent. I'll know in a few months if their electronics are as equally well designed. Works fine with 3TB, even 4TB, disks (assuming your system supports 3TB & 4TB disks - remember to use GPT!).

Cons: Spins down disks regularly when connected via eSATA (haven't tried USB). This introduces delays not only when accessing the device, but also when other system events occur (like waking from screen locks) that evaluates all mounted devices. I've sidestepped this issue by running touch every couple minutes, to keep regular activity on the drive. This sleep occurs regardless of system-wide sleep settings, perhaps Orico could release a firmware update to disable the case chipset's sleep setting. In the case of my backup drive, the drive no sooner goes to sleep than an incremental backup kicks off and spins it up, that kind of constant spin down & up will kill a drive's motor dead in no time.

Other Thoughts: I've always preferred drives to use horizontal, rather than vertical, mounts. While modern drive bearings don't care (back in days of yore the bearing would quickly wear out when the drive was on a side instead of flat), it's harder to introduce big undulations (by bumping the desk, for instance) in the drive when the is case is flat and wide like these. The only way Orico could improve this design would be to release a quad interface variant (1394a, 1394b, USB, & eSATA).

2 out of 5 eggsNoise

This review is from: ORICO 3519SUS3-BK Aluminum Alloy HDD External Enclosure with E-SATA and USB3.0 Interface

Pros: Easy to insert various HDDs, Simple set up, Master power on back, Power on front,

Cons: Loud like that dull whirring sound you hear when flying on a passenger jet (near the engines). While most noise comes from the HDD itself, the case seems to magnify it. So far ran an old 160 Gb Hitachi and a new 1TB WD. The WD was a quieter, but still too much noise for regular use or doing backups daily.

Other Thoughts: Intent was to make use of multiple old drives for various and redundant backups. Too loud for that. But if you want to clean up an old driver (shred files before giving it away), this might be the answer. Or you want to burn a smaller Gb drive to a larger one, this might be what you want. But if you want a quiet office - don't go here.

5 out of 5 eggsIt does support drives over 2TB

This review is from: ORICO 3519SUS3-BK Aluminum Alloy HDD External Enclosure with E-SATA and USB3.0 Interface

Pros: This enclosure does work fine with drives over 2 TB as long as you use the proper version of Windows and the eSATA cable instead of the USB cable.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: If you use a 64-bit version of Windows, as most people now do, drives over 2 TB are supported. Only 32-bit versions of Windows have a 2TB limit and that's not a fault of this enclosure or Newegg.
