1 out of 5 eggsLow quality

Pros: Easy to install a drive.

Cons: I put an SSD in this for a technical test unrelated to the SSD or the enclosure, but I found out that this case heats up pretty quick and high. Using it with an SSD it shouldn't have gotten warm at all, but it got hotter than most of my external platter drives do. I swapped to a 2.5" 250gb I had laying around it and it also heated up. It's the board inside with the power and connectors! The heat spreads on the case, but that just means it wraps your drive in it. I can't recommend this as reliable, and I'm pretty sure prolonged use will cause a drive to fail before it's lifetime is up. My test worked, so thankfully I have no need of these cases anymore and I'm tossing them out asap.

1 out of 5 eggsStay away

Pros: Inexpensive

Cons: Inboard firewire port never worked. Talked to Ken at Bytecc and he said he would send me a new enclosure. After waiting for 2 weeks I e-mailed him twice for a tracking # with no reply

2 out of 5 eggsFlimsy

Pros: Has an Oxford 934DSB chipset, is bus powered via firewire, can daisy chain. Easy to assemble.

Cons: Only bus powered via firewire, very thin, cheap aluminum, rattles a lot when you pick it up, wasn't as fast as I thought it was going to be (63MB/s write, 76 MB/s read with a 7200 RPM drive, results were not consistent), has a funky USB/eSata combo cable, need power adapter to use via USB. gets VERY HOT. Sometimes takes a few tries to mount.

Other Thoughts: Should have gone with the brand I usually go with. It also has a bright blue LED.
