1 out of 5 eggsI finally just broke it

Pros: tool-less installation

Cons: lock button doesn't work
hard to remove drive once installed
plastic retaining clips
bottom hdd screws rub the cover

Other Thoughts: The top and bottom silver covers still move around even with the lock switch engaged. Once you put a hard drive in, it's nearly impossible to get out without breaking either the sata connector or the 4 side retaining clips. After struggling with it again, i finally just snapped them off to get the drive out.

4 out of 5 eggsSo far, so good

Pros: Sturdy build. The sliders come off and move a little more than I would like, but no big deal.

Packaged well. No drivers needed (Win7-64). Plugged and played without any problems.

Kind of a nice design, so sitting on your desk it looks kind of cool.

Nice way to get some use out of some older drives.

Cons: The USB cord that comes with the unit is proprietary. There is a little extra tab for what is probably to hold in on tighter, not really sure. Normal USB cords still seem to work.

Power cord is a little shorter than I would like. The locking tab for the sliders is going to break sooner or later if you use this with any frequency.

It feels like you could break off a piece of the internal connections when you remove / replace and HD. So I wouldn't plan on doing that often.

Other Thoughts: USB transfer speeds on my desk top at USB 2.0 were 15mps ~ 19mps. For some reason my old ASUS laptop would not transfer data past 900kps.

I tested against a WD portable 1tb drive and it worked fine on the laptop. Will figure that out later.

The warranty / product book is a fold out piece of paper written in 40 different languages and printed in 2pt font. You really don't need it, but why bother. The instructions aren't much different.
