1 out of 5 eggsbad batch product

Pros: cheap enclosure, screw less

Cons: seems to have massive issues with their product, drives can not write/ format.

Other Thoughts: 1st enclosure I was able to format two drives in raid 0, read and write were amazing at near 340mb/s sequential for large files. however it would constantly break off after writing few gb so rendering it unusable and it would no longer write anymore. read from HDtune works fine, but cannot write/format, disk management would freeze.

at first I thought maybe issues with power supply not providing enough power but that is not the case, changed different usb 3 cable and no luck. swap out different drives and again not working, test the same drives in another raid/solo enclosure drives worked fine. tried this enclosure on another computer still same issue, cannot format.

returned it for a 2nd enclosure, same issue can't format out of the box. silverstone, this will be the last time I get anything from the company, you guys have wasted my time.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: none

Cons: Very cheap construction, noisy fan, horribly slow transfer speed between 2 harddrives in non-raid configuration. Plus it would not see my existing data on my harddrives. STAY AWAY product is piece of trash.

Other Thoughts: horrible tech support that is slow to response

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you very much for purchasing a SilverStone. When you transfer data between two drives in non-RAID configuration, the data actually have to travel to and back from your PC via USB connection so it will essentially run at half the potential speed than if you are transferring data from the DS322 to your PC. If you have 3TB drive or larger, then unfortunately they would need to be repartitioned in the DS322 before they can be used. If you have further questions or need assistance, please contact us at the following e-mail address. We will be more than happy to help you:

1 out of 5 eggsDoes not work and poor support Silverstone

Pros: cheaper

Cons: does not recognize drives
poor support for firmware update

Other Thoughts: tested 2 drives which both work on 2 different windows 7 desktop setups. Both drives failed to be recognized at times nor when it did recognize the drives could i format and/or partition in either windows 7 or mac osx 10.8.
New firmware update- poor support from silverstone

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you very much for purchasing SilverStone. We are more than willing to help sort out your issues as we noticed that in some configurations, the native USB 3.0 driver can cause drive to not get recognized. Please contact our tech support at the following address with your system configurations:

1 out of 5 eggsDefective Unit + Loud Fan

Pros: The box looks slick. The drives mount nicely by sliding them until they hit the back and then you just push them into place. The front panel clicks into place easily, and the front lights look sharp. The aluminum enclosure feels solid.

Cons: When I deleted all of the partitions on my Mac using USB 3.0, I was not able to re-partition and re-format. So I switched to my Windows 7 machine using USB 2.0. Same problem. Thoroughly tested the drive in another enclosure and the drive is fine.

The small 40 mm fan is also very loud. Too loud to have on your desk. You can hear the fan distinctly from the other side of the room.

Other Thoughts: I have seen reviews for other external, dual bay, USB 3.0 only enclosures and others have had problems. I'm wondering if the chipset has bugs. I hope the bugs are worked out, or that this was an abnormality. Overall, the tech specs are great.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you very much for purchasing a SilverStone. We have recently released a new firmware that should solve the problem you experienced. You can download it from DS322's product page at the following link:
