1 out of 5 eggsFW800 dead

Pros: Good concept. Needed a FW800 dock since I still have it and use it with assorted Macbook Pros and don't have USB3 yet on anything. Have been puzzled by the OWC Voyager still getting bad ratings after all these years for breaking down. So when this went on sale I bit.

Without front on docking of drives is fairly smooth and secure. Design, with its shape and bulk, isn't a plus but not a deal breaker for a working FW800 dock.

Cons: FW800 was randomly flakey off the bat, leading me to doubt the new cheap Toshiba 3Ts I got on sale or at least their incompatibility. Frustrating. After two weeks of this FW800 now is dead, not seen. USB2 works but is not of any value to me. Back it goes

5 out of 5 eggsGreat External Enclosure

Pros: My old computer, several years old running Vista suddenly stopped with no power. It had two 500 Gig hard drives that I needed the data off of, this was a spare computer but still had needed data. My new computer is an Apple that is running Parallels software and Windows 7. The ICY DOCK Blizzard connected with no problems and changing the hard drives is very easy with no screws to remove. The hard drives are recognized on both the Apple and Windows operating systems. This is a great enclosure costing more than some but well worth the extra cost.

Cons: No cons at all, this is a great product.

Other Thoughts: Highly recommended

3 out of 5 eggsGood device, poor rebate policy

Pros: This really is a very good device. Its two huge pros are it keeps the hard drive cool over extended periods (such as cloning a disk) and, hard drives can be inserted and removed effortlessly in seconds. I would rate it 5 stars if the company did not have a poor rebate policy.

Cons: It is unconscionable for any company to tell it's own customers, who have bought an item with a promotion/rebate to: "allow 12 - 14 weeks from receipt of your rebate". That is 1/4 of a year !!!!

1 out of 5 eggsUPDATE: It's garbage.

Pros: Easy to install.

Cons: Works with some drives, doesn't work with others.

Other Thoughts: After RMAing for a replacement, apparently it didn't want to seat a WD 2TB drive correctly. Drive would initialize, partition, but it would not format. This was consistant using different eSATA ports and cables. Drive was tested to operate fine in a different enclosure. I put this down to the Icy Dock's vertical design and lack of a hard mount. Roll the dice if you must, but I would avoid it.

4 out of 5 eggsCould be good, but got a lemon.

Pros: Awesome tooless design, just pop the front off, put the drive in, pop the front back on and your good to go. Great speeds from USB 3.0 with USAP.

Cons: Not exactly a compact footprint, no option to lay it out horizontally. While made with sturdy plastic, there isn't any metal heatsink inside (at least as far as I can tell) so the fan is pretty much your only cooling option, and if I'm really nitpicking the power and disk activity LEDs are kind of tiny.

Other Thoughts: Unfortunately I got a lemon. While everything works pretty flawlessly with USB 3.0 the eSATA connector definately doesn't work. Afraid I'll have to RMA and hope I have better luck with the next one.

5 out of 5 eggsBuy It!

Pros: Works via USB 3.0 in Ubuntu 13.10, cool and quiet, nice design, easy to use.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have tried several USB 3.0 docks and external enclosures, and this is the first one to work consistently using USB 3.0 in Ubuntu 13.10. The fan in mine is very quiet, contrary to what I read in some other reviews. The design is great, it's easy to swap drives, and it sits very stably on the desk. The included USB 3.0 cable is plenty long.

5 out of 5 eggsnice HDD enclosure

Pros: Using this for external storage for a low power and very small form factor HTPC, looks nice and like the design for an always running 2TB hybrid drive. Very quiet and have the peace of mind the drive will stay as cool as possible.

Cons: No cons, just wish all these enclosure manufacturers were better detailed about max HDD capacity. Just the facts about the device limitations, not the operating system its attached to.

Other Thoughts: Have used different brand enclosures before with success, picked this one because it has a fan to keep an always running drive cool. Am no interior designer but I like how its looks in my home theater area.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Enclosure

Pros: Quite, fast, very accessible, easy to change drives, blue lighting matched my system. I have had this docking enclosure for a while now, without any problems whatsoever. Worked from the moment I hooked up to the system, and has never failed to read any drive I put in it, All my drives are WD or Seagate. I run a 1TB Seagate drive in it continuously, without problem. My system reads the drive's three sectors just as if they were in the case. I also have two other drives, 250gb WD that I store some information on. All I have to do is turn off the enclosure take off the face, pull one drive out, push the other in, reinstall the front and turn it on.

I considered several such systems before deciding on the Icy Dock. After doing some research, and checking reviews from several different sites, I chose this one. Don't regret the choice. Would buy this one again if I needed another.

Cons: None whatsoever. Has filled all my needs.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for an external drive enclosure, this is the one you want. It works as advertised.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome looking and functioning

Pros: This enclosure works perfectly and is well designed. The eSATA and USB 2.0 interfaces work perfectly (I was getting 200-350 MB/s on eSATA transferring a large file).
Also, installing/swapping hard drives on this is unbelievably easy and requires no tools.
Finally, this drive enclosure just looks super cool. I feel that I have a miniature jet engine sitting on my shelf.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I haven't tested the USB 3.0 interface.
This enclosure is not a small one. If you want a very portable one, the diamond shaped front end would probably not be appropriate for you.
