2 out of 5 eggseSATA power limitation

Pros: Style.

Cons: eSATA connection requires USB for power. No activity light. Cables required for connection take more space than the entire drive.

5 out of 5 eggsThis is a nice leather covered external enclosure with eSATA connectivity

Pros: eSATA works perfectly with a Seagate Momentus ST9750423AS. I placed a jumper over the two outer pins on the disk drive per other reviews of this enclosure, and per the drive manual, to force the 1.5M transfer eSATA speed.

Cons: None so far, but I have only had this enclosure and the disk drive operating for about 1 day.

Other Thoughts: I put a jumper on the outer two drive pins per other reviewer's recommendations. The drive was then connected directly to a computer running Windows 8 CP, and formatted with NTFS, 4096 file allocation units. I copied several very large files to the drive while I was there anyway. Then, the drive was transferred to the CoolMax enclosure, and fired up with the narrow USB connector, then the eSATA connector on my laptop -- works perfectly. I have not tried it without the jumper in place, but it works now so it will probably stay as-is (not broken = leave it alone.)

1 out of 5 eggseSATA DO NOT WORK!

Pros: looks, leather make it look nice.
no need for power supply.

Cons: eSATA DO NOT WORK, the only reason I got it was to use the eSATA port and it wont work.
Only one color LED.
waste of money, brand got burned for me.

Other Thoughts: It sucks that I spend my money on something that I will not use at all, I don need another USB external drive, I have a free eSATA port and wanted to use it, now it remains free.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Looking/Working Caddy

Pros: Very attractive looking complete package for 2.5" sata drives. Sustained 97.8 MB/sec from my HP Envy notebook via Esata on 8 GB file with a Seagate 500GB Hybrid SSD. Very fast!

Cons: Must use USB power if using Esata.

2 out of 5 eggsDoesn't do what I bought it for (eSATA)

Pros: Nice sturdy housing with unique and nice textured leather covering and a nice matching leather case with flexible loop-strap (assumingly, to use on a laptop case strap). Relatively light-weight. Includes all cables and even a tiny screwdriver for final assembly. Decent price. Does not need (or have) external power adapter -- uses local USB bus power (Coolmax spec's "up to 250 GB drive capacity") *(I cannot confirm eSATA support).

Cons: Does not function on eSATA using either a Seagate 160 GB HDD, or OCZ Agility 30 GB SSD with latest v1.5 firmware, on either my desktop or laptop eSATA port, even following the Coolmax site's instructions to have just 1 of the 2 usb ends connected for power when connected to eSATA -- but USB works with either of those drives. I bought this specifically to eSATA a small SSD for portable heavy I/O work -- USB 2.0 is useless to me for that. No drive activity indicator (light) -- just power LED. When drive is mounted right-side-up, port labels are upside-down.

Other Thoughts: For some reason, the shipping time on my order took forever to arrive (2 weeks), compared to what I'm used to with NewEgg.

2 out of 5 eggsis esata too much for the size drives

Pros: compact, slick looking, and a nice case

Cons: esata will work with some drives, and wont with others.
2 seagate 500G drives (I really wish I had tracked the model numbers) 1 ran fine the other didnt. rma'd for the coolmax
211. lets just say I should have kept the 250 and stuck with usb last drive not working well st950042

Other Thoughts: I've been happy with the usb cases, maybe I should wait
for usb 3.0. thank you to the reviewers who have included data on what they have done

1 out of 5 eggseSATA does not work

Pros: None that matter. It doesn't work.

Cons: Mine is another case of the eSATA problem. I have used the golden Coolmax eSATA enclosure [http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817159093] for nearly two years now without a single problem. So I thought that I could ignore the recent comments about problems with the eSATA functionality on these enclosures, bad choice. I just installed this new one as a one for one replacement of the Coolmax enclosure I have been using all along ... and it does not work! Switching out cables, re-installing the drive, etc. all made no difference. DOA - with all the usual waste of time and effort. Not newegg's fault of course. Don't buy this item unless you are convinced that Coolmax has fixed the problem with this product.

5 out of 5 eggsQuality product

Pros: Supports e-sata and USB, quality leather cover and case. Absolutely no problem when used with Hitachi Travelstar drives.

Cons: Single green LED for power and drive read/write activities. Two LEDs would have been better

Other Thoughts: I bought a black leather version last year (wish Newegg would also sell that model); liked it so much bought this tan one in August.
