4 out of 5 eggsNot a bad enclosure

Pros: I'm running 4 of these that I got cheaper someplace else but this isn't too bad a price. All 4 have 500 GB Barracuda ES HDDs and I haven't had any problem at all. They do look stylish and have the OneTouchButton but I haven't tried that out.

Cons: No real instructions. Hardest part was getting the front cover off but not really a Con, I guess. After I got it off, the hdd just slides in and makes the connection. No cooling fan so enclosure does get hot, I guess that's to be expected, so I have a fan blowing across them.

Other Thoughts: It could use more vent slots for cooling.

2 out of 5 eggsoverall very nice but lacks a fan to cool down this little enclosure

Pros: i have the copper colored aluminum versionof this enclosure and must say that over all its very easy to use with nice features like the power on/off switch. The two screws in the back makes this enclosure very easy to open and install or replace the hard drive.

Cons: this thing can heat up pretty fast. This thing should've come with a fan or a connector that allows you to insert a fan.

Other Thoughts: I haven't had much problems with this one but if you're looking for 3.5 hard drive enclosures make sure it comes with a fan to cool it down.

5 out of 5 eggsSuper Coolmax

Pros: Great little sata enclosure. Easy assembly, nice fit. Had a desktop build that went to my Dad. He didn't need two drives so I kept one and used this...

Cons: Not really a con... no instructions, but how complicated can it be ... less than 2 minutes

Other Thoughts: It's inexpensive, just buy it!
