5 out of 5 eggsOveral Good Product

Pros: All ports works perfectly
Fans still working
Good Transfer Rate as advertised.

Cons: At first I was a little concerned that the inside connections and assembly looked like it was done in a rush, looked like CSI dust the unit for fingerprints, as I saw one and seems that its not made with prime components, just cheap ones which seems the price a little overrated

Other Thoughts: One of the LEDS failed after 1 week, doesn't seem right to bust an egg since the performance itself it's good

5 out of 5 eggsWell Built & easy to use!

Pros: Connect via e-SATA or USB. Drive is correctly recognized in WHS 2011. Good build quality, easy to assemble, and excellent ventilation with the fan. Green drive runs quietly inside it.

Cons: Sometimes the LED light goes out, but that's no big deal.

Other Thoughts: Using this for the Server backup drive for my WHS 2011. Definitely worth the money!!

5 out of 5 eggsSolid and silent.

Pros: Quiet and solid case. Bought this to replace a dead enclosure and it works perfectly. I use the eSATA connection, which is what the previous enclosure used, and the 1 TB drive. No problems and the drive is recognized as if it has been there all along on the computer docking station.

Cons: none so far.

Other Thoughts: I need another enclosure and will be purchasing this product.

4 out of 5 eggsCool & Quiet

Pros: This fans in this enclosure are so quiet, I first thought that they weren't even working. I purchased a WD 2TB HDD to go with this enclosure, and so far, everything is working perfectly! There is a "foot" in the base that can rotate, giving the enclosure more stability.

Cons: There is a blue activity LED in the front of the enclosure, along with blue LEDs that illuminate the fans. Although the enclosure looks attractive with the LEDs on, they can get annoying when I am trying to sleep. There is a switch on the back that turns off the LEDs for this very reason, however, turning the switch off only turns off the FAN LEDs...the activity LED stays lit.

Other Thoughts: I put a 2TB Western Digital hard drive in this enclosure and I've had no problems.

2 out of 5 eggsThermaltake Drive Enclosure

Pros: Solid Case and runs cool

Cons: Build quality seems to have gone down.

Other Thoughts: We have bought dozens of these cases with minimal problems until recently. Just ordered 2 and one was DOA. Got replacement and then it died about 2 days later. Worried that they are not doing proper QA. NewEgg is great but really would like an enclosure that works and unfortunately have not found another decent replacement.

1 out of 5 eggsdid not work

Pros: Solid case with fans

Cons: Only saw the disk for a few hours and then would not see the disk on usb or esata.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't buy It

Pros: looks nice

Cons: Will not connect to the CPU via the SATA or USB.
Difficult to connect the HDD to the PCB.
Poor documentation.
The PCB looks like it was assembled by a 2 year old child.
Poor solder connections and not cleaned after the assembly was finished. I wouldn’t be surprised if the box is failing because of cold solder joints.
It’s apparent there is no QC being done.
Save your money.
