1 out of 5 eggsNice Doorstop

Pros: Worked good for a few weeks

Cons: Worked fine for a while, then went missing. When you plug it in its Hardware ID indicates it is a TV Tuner then can't find drivers. I called their Tech Support (Ken?) first he was just lost. I emailed him screen shots to document, he did not call back. I called him back, he promised to send me a circuit board. Maybe in his next life he'll come through.

Other Thoughts: Google search is full of inquiries, but no solutions. Avoid this one for Windows 7.

1 out of 5 eggsCan't write DVDs

Pros: Seems well constructed.

Cons: Can't write DVDs on either Linux or Windows.

Other Thoughts: I made a bunch of coasters trying to burn a DVD. I checked the BYTECC web site for a firmware upgrade and did not find one.

3 out of 5 eggsDecent but hardly perfect.

Pros: Easy way for me to connect my Blu-Ray Lightscribe to my iMac, which lacks an internal disc drive. The drive went in easily and seems to work pretty well most of the time.

Cons: Fan - After less than a year the fan began making an awful noise and I ended up just taking it out, since I use a disc drive and not a hard disk, so heat happens not to be an issue for me.

Reliability - while this thing is fast (USB 3.0), I have found that sometimes the communication between my computer and the drive is interrupted in the middle of burning, reading or lightscribe etching. It happens often enough to be very frustrating.

Sliding - this thing slides easily and can move on its own over time just from the vibrations of a spinning disc inside the drive. Some rubber feet would fix the problem.

The blue activity light is incredibly bright (many, many times brighter than a typical activity light) and can be bothersome when using it to watch a movie with the lights out.

1 out of 5 eggsGarbage

Pros: You can put a DVD / Blu Ray drive in it and it will read Cds and DVDs fine.

Cons: Can't burn anything reliably. I was unable to burn an audio CD for the longest time. Tried Windows 7 & OSX. I thought it was my computer, turns out it was just this stupid enclosure. I got a Vantec Nexstar, put my burner in it and I'm able to burn everything just fine.

Other Thoughts: It feels cheap and it IS cheap. Avoid at all costs.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: USB3; accepts 5.25" devices; external PSU

Cons: Blinding activity light; may not power some 5.25" devices; very large footprint - physical dimension 10.25"x6.75"x2' - unless using as a hotswap bay I can't see using this as a HDD enclosure; proprietary power plug; muffin fan in turbo mode

Other Thoughts: This would not be a 4 or even 3 egg, had there not been a 5.25" device in my war chest this enclosure could power. 1 of 3 BD drives worked - the whole reason for purchasing. I believe it may have to do w/ power requirements but can't say for sure. Currently using an older LG WH12LS38. No issues w/ reading any of the optical formats the drive is capable of supporting; unable to speak towards burning ability. The power supply is external which will keep temperatures down but is a non-standard 4-pin plug on the device side. The enclosure is VERY large, so take measurements. The activity light definitely lets you know it's on if the tremendous whoosh of air hadn't already.
