5 out of 5 eggsBetter enclosure than I thought it would be

Pros: Been running 24/7 for over 6 months with no problems. Heavy aluminum, stays cool even with no fan. I like the sturdy feel. Power led (red) and activity led (blue) are not very bright which I like, some other enclosures have superbrights and that is no fun to have shining at your face all day if you keep the drive on your desk like I do.

Cons: I have had no problems because I don't haul this drive around a lot, but would prefer the larger pin connector bytecc puts on other enclosures, this one is fine but has the smaller pins, so not as durable if you haul it around a lot.

Other Thoughts: I posted this reveiew because I saw some bad ones and I haven't had any problems with this enclosure. Maybe they changed things as mine is newer than some reviews, but mine included an instruction sheet (1 page) and a small cheap screwdriver which was enough to install the drive with no problems.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible

Pros: It says that it supports both SATA and IDE.

Cons: I have no way of knowing whether the manufacturer's claims are true because I CANNOT OPEN THE CASE.

1. There are no instructions, but I found another person's review helpful to open via screws in the back.

2. I've been trying to unscrew the screws for the past 20 minutes, with every bit of force I have in my body, and the screws simply WON'T BUDGE.

3. I bought from a local retailer, so I will have to drive the 12 miles back there to return this junk.

Other Thoughts: I should have looked up reviews while I was in the store before I purchased. I won't make the same mistake again. I also will never buy anything by Bytecc again. They're going to get this back with the screws stripped, by the time I'm done with it.

1 out of 5 eggsPower supply connector

Pros: Support for both ATA (up to 1TB) & SATA (up to 2TB). No fan noise (since it lacks a cooling fan).

Cons: Power connector pins aren't long enough, resulting in the enclosure not having any power unless I push on it continuously (considering rubber bands and/or super-glue).

BYTECC charges $10 for in-warranty return shipping, and BYTECC technical support has not responded to my emails. Unfortunately I didn't buy it at NewEgg; I know that NewEgg would have exchanged it for me.

Other Thoughts: Added rubber feet so it won't slip off the desk.

2 out of 5 eggsWell built enclosure but...

Pros: The enclosure itself is pretty solidly built. Good thick aluminum, not some tin can case. I like the modular plugs to switch between SATA and IDE.

Cons: First problem, an annoyance. The screws to open the case are recessed and the holes are too small for a standard screwdriver bit. You need a precision screwdriver to open the enclosure. I don't see any need for this.

Second, major issue. The power supply died in less than 5 minutes! It was plugged into the UPS too. I was fortunate enough to have an old power supply from an old, dead enclosure that was compatible and saved me from a RMA.

Other Thoughts: +1 Egg for a good build on the actual enclosure. +1 Egg for using a semi-standard power supply.

I'm almost equally upset over the recessed screws. I almost had to run out at the last minute to buy a bleeping screwdriver.

It is running fine at the moment, for what it's worth.
