4 out of 5 eggsExact;y what I needed

Pros: * Sturdy
* Comes with mounting screws for the HDD
* Fan with manual on/off switch
* Great price when it is on sale

Cons: * Bright LED

Other Thoughts: I had one of those WD 750GB passport externals and the glue on the ribbon cable started to separate after a good 5+ years of use. I resoldered the cable quite a few times and I knew it was time to get a new external case.

This external case is way better than what came with the WD passport. The fan is a nice touch. The only minor gripe is the bright blue LED, but it's not that big of a deal.

5 out of 5 eggsIt works great

Pros: Cooling fan
Large HDD bay
eSATA

Cons: Not really a con, But LEDs are a little too bright.

Other Thoughts: I love this. As soon as I got it I put in an older WD caviar black 500gb and ran a Windows backup. It ran amazingly fast using eSATA. I liked it having a bracket already for the eSATA. It overall was a great purchase. P.S. it was on sale.

5 out of 5 eggsThis is my 3rd

Pros: Excellent fit and finish. So easy to install. Plug&Play. Aluminum and a fan for cooling. Sturdy. Doesn't need a stand.

Cons: The fan is loud, but that is easily solved by turning it off and leaving suitable space for cooling.

Other Thoughts: I have three of them now. No problems. And, they look very nice standing together, I use them in my HTPC, so USB 2,0 is not an issue for me. Excellent buy.

5 out of 5 eggsThis is number four

Pros: Very well made
Good price
FREE shipping
eSATA which is a big plus for me

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Can't believe how fast it completes a backup using the eSATA feature. Just a fraction of the time USB2.0 takes.

I now have four of these enclosures containing 500G SATA drives.

That's it cuz I only have four computers.

5 out of 5 eggsBest on the Market

Pros: Over the last two years have put six of these on family and friends Computers as a storage drive and Backups and they work great. Sometimes you have to go into Hard drive settings on Windows and Mac to get it to recognize the blank drive but is simple enough for a 5th grader to figure out. A lot better than sending your info to a Cloud or the Government. Of course Esata is three times faster than USB-2 if you got USB-3 they are about the same

Cons: Some complain about the led being to bright all you need to do is take some semi transparent finger nail polish and cover it or unplug it. I had a friend that don't like blue so I changed them to green
