5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Enclosure!

Pros: - 8 drive bays!
- USB 3.0
- no cable clutter (only 1 power cable and 1 USB cable)
- hot swap

Cons: - Enclosure fan is a little loud. I'm sure it could be replaced if I wanted silent operation. Doesn't bother me tho.

Other Thoughts: I've not had any problems like other people mention. All 8 of my drives (mized) stay connected. Fast USB 3.0 transfer speeds.

4 out of 5 eggsSans Digital TR8U+B

Pros: Packaging well protect the unit. Nice unit construction. USB 3.0 Speed give about 90-100MB/s.

Cons: Time to Time has difficulty to recognize all the 8 drives. After 2 or 3 power up usually all the drive are detected. Happen more on the USB 3.0 port than a USB 2.0 Port. Difficult to pinpoint the real problem; USB Driver, Slow Drive (Green Drive) or Sans Digital Enclosure

Other Thoughts: Since I'm using it in a WHS2011 environment the power up problem is not bothering me much.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Storage Unit - Fit My Needs

Pros: The unit is solidly built and has small footprint. Holds 8 3TB drives. USB 3.0. Like the removable trays.

Cons: Need detailed instructions on how to do initial set-up. They don't explain that you must have drives installed in Bay 1 and Bay 5 first before all other drives get recognized.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I have had no issues with the tower at all. It is not a RAID tower but perfect for my use as a media server connected to my HTPC. I will have 24TB capacity once fully loaded. Wish drives could be hot-swappble. Other than lack of instructions, I think it is a solid product.

1 out of 5 eggsLooks nice, but....

Pros: Solid drive trays. If you ordered this USB3 version and wanted ESATA instead, just unscrew the case and there's a hidden esata port. Magic.

Cons: DRIVES DO NOT STAY CONNECTED! This basically makes the whole device worthless. Sometimes the connection lasts 5 hours, sometimes 5 minutes. Horrid.

Other Thoughts: Do not buy. At the time of writing this review there were 3 other reviews saying it's junk. Listen to our mistakes and buy the Mediasonic equivalent of this, it works perfectly.

Manufacturer Response:

2 out of 5 eggsZERO QUALITY CONTROL

Pros: Perfect tool for the job. The Best packaging I have ever seen.

Cons: I looked in the case before use and I was suprised to see almost every plug in there not attached. Non existent quality control. THe Front door rubs upon opening and closing. Fan is Noisy. One of the bays does not pop out easily.

Other Thoughts: This unit is working now. I hope that it lasts. I cannot beleive the poor quality control.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for purchasing our product.

I am surprise as well due to the fact that all units is tested before shipping. If the cables are discounted when arrival, I can only suggest the unit is damage due to shipping.

Your product covers with 1 year part and labor warranty. Please contact our technical support at tech@sansdigital.com or 1-800-980-1988 and we can provide you support on above issues.

1 out of 5 eggsFirst one was totally dead....

Pros: Don't know yet - the unit was DOA.

Cons: The unit was DOA.

Other Thoughts: The first unit arrived totally dead (would power on, but nothing else about it worked). Sans Digital tech support walked me through debugging it, and then said I needed to send it back to NewEgg, which then cost me $20. For a DOA unit. Great.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for purchasing our product.

We review this case internally. The unit will required to use drive 1 and drive 5 as the first 2 drives and the rest should be detected.

Please contact our technical support at tech@sansdigital.com or 1-800-980-1988 and we will be able to help you for the unit.
