The RAIDON SafeTANK GT1650, a 3.5” external hard drive enclosure which benefits from USB 3.0 and eSATA, allows you to conquer speed and transfer data at a larger rate. Even without USB 3.0, it does not take away your privilege of having up to 3.0 Gb/s transfer rate of eSATA interface. GT1650 removable HDD tray design facilitates data management in multiple HDD to enhance your data exchange and data categorization.
Fast and flexible
This review is from: RAIDON SafeTANK GT1650-SB3 Aluminum 3.5" Black USB3.0 & eSATA External Hard Drive Enclosure
Pros: Very quick on eSATA transferring large digital camera files. However, don't expect the theoretical 3Gbps promise of SATA 2. USB 3 not tried, as the expected USB 3 cable was not in the box. USB standard 'B' connector works, but at the usual glacial transfer rate. Interchangeable drive trays offer great flexibility. But hot-swapping is not promoted by RAIDON and I have not tried it. Otherwise, both enclosure and trays are well made and work as represented in NewEgg listing. Deduct one 'egg' for no USB 3 cable.
Cons: No USB 3 cable in box.
