5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Power adapter is thin enough to fit a 2-prong cord next to it in a power strip.

Cons: Seems like it wouldn't need to be quite so long.

Other Thoughts: Don't plan on booting from a drive over eSATA -- on a warm reboot it will work, on a cold boot it doesn't power up in time.

5 out of 5 eggsSANS DIGITAL TowerSTOR TS1UT+B

Pros: Capacity:
- Can handle drive up to 4T. I only used a 3T so far. Not all enclosure support 4T drives.
- USB 3: Faster than both firewire and USB 2. Tested it on my PC running Windows 7.
- USB 2: It works with my old early 2009 Mac which has USB 2 and firewire.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: My goal was to provide my early 2009 Mac Mini with external storage for my iTunes collection of 2T and growing. I have 2 previous Sans Digital external single drive enclosure with triple interface and had no problems. Unfortunately, they were of lower capacity.I needed an enclosure with more room to expand. I dropped firewire from my requirements since Apple is dropping firewire and it by having USB 3, it would actually be faster when I would eventually upgrade to a new Mac Mini.

I put a WD Green 3T in the enclose.

- USB 3 Seems to be working, I did a quick test by downloading a 10 gigabyte file from a NAS to this drive plugged into a PC and got an average transfer rates of 98MB/s.The point being that it is much faster than USB 2. This test did not push the enclose to its’ maximum speed. I am impress with the write speed of the WD Green 3T!


Initially, after I installed the hard drive into the enclosure, nothing seem to work. The power LED did not even turn on. My mistake was, when I installed the hard drive, to not to have push the hard drive forward after putting the screws to hold the hard drive in position. Once this is done and the screws are tighten, everything worked.

- I have 2 other older Sans Digital enclosure with firewire and they both still work fine but the maximum drive size for the enclosures is too small for my needs.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: Shipping is good and fast.

Cons: DOA in the beginning.....sorry I just open the box after 2 week i receive it. I change to the different adapter, still no working. The board inside the box look has been fixed and not that clean.

Other Thoughts: Is this really a new one or fixed one? did the company ever test the product before deliver it to market? I wonder.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing Sans Digital products.

Sorry to hear about the problem. May I ask you have you insert any hard drive to the unit? If the unit has no hard drive inserted it will act as if it's dead when powered up. If you did have hard drive inserted, have you tested the hard drive to see if it's working outside the unit? Except for specific open-box units, we will always ship brand new products to our customers. All units are tested and QA/QC passed before shipped out. Did you contact our tech support for help?

If you have problems on the unit, please contact us by calling 1-800-980-1988 for technical support and our engineer will try to resolve it over the phone. You can also contact us at tech@sansdigital.com for email support.

3 out of 5 eggsSolid Product. Poor customer service.

Pros: Both USB and SATA interfaces work as expected. The blue power/access LED is very bright and is mounted on the top of the enclosure. A smaller dimmer LED would be better placed on the front of the enclosure so that it could be visible when stacked.

Cons: If your purchasing this item due to a mail-in rebate. Forget it! I have submitted two rebates many months ago and received nothing. I have tried to contact the company several times. However, my messages are either ignored or not resolved.
They also do not offer any way to check the rebate status online.

Poor customer service.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for purchasing Sans Digital products, about the blue LED I will definitely discuss with our R & D department.

For the rebate issues, please contact info@sansdigital.com for support.

If you have problem on the unit, please contact us by calling 1-800-980-1988 for technical support and our engineer will try to resolve it over the phone. You can also contact us at tech@sansdigital.com for email support.

3 out of 5 eggsCould have been better

Pros: I bought this because it works in a USB 3.0. Runs good with USB 2.0 but nothing with a 3.0 like says it will do with Windows 8. Wish I could have given Better Feedback on this but what can I say it does work but not as well as I thought.

Cons: I am running Windows 8 & tried this in the USB 3.0 will not run or recognize it what so ever have not tried it on a PC running Windows 7 with a USB 3.0 yet but plan on it. Bad Customer Service tried calling a little after 3:30 PM Eastern time but no answer & had to find the number from Google not on there website.

Other Thoughts: The company when I called sales told me to E-Mail Tech Support to get Drivers Updates or something because they needed updating or something the USB 3.0 but I own a Flash Drive 3.0 and recognizes that fine and works So I don't know you would think it would work & at that you would think I could find it on there website under the external drive but have not checked yet!

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for purchasing Sans Digital Product.

Our technical support provides customer service on Monday to Friday, except national holiday, from 8:30AM to 5:00PM PST. The TS1UT+B is supported in Windows 8 and does not need to update any firmware internally of TS1UT+B. We have confirmed with our internal testing as well as customers reports. Please make sure to use the cables that come with unit, due to we found there are unreliable cables available in the market.

If you are having problem on the unit, please contact us by calling 1-800-980-1988 for technical support and our engineer will try to resolve it over the phone. You can also contact us at tech@sansdigital.com for e-mail supports.
