2 out of 5 eggsLook for something better

Pros: It's work with USB3. Nice on/off switch. Had no problems with A/C adapter, length of cable, or combination power adapter and cables, which plugs nicely into surge units or battery backup (unlike another manufacturer which starts with V....).

Cons: This unit has some major flaws.

One is the bottom edges of the front and rear are SHARP. It can and did scratch my office desk. I suppose one can put something over the edge, but realistically, SIIG (of whoever manufactures this for SIIG), need to have a plastic support for the unit. The unit supports itself fairly well, but there needs to be better support for it. A plastic support would also give protection for whatever surface it is sitting on.

Has an ASMedia ASM1051 controller chip. The one I received is an early version which does not support hard drive monitoring. This SIIG was unable to give me the temperature or S.M.A.R.T. of the drive. There was a firmware update available but not released to the general public.

However, there is a newer ASM1051 which does support hard drive monitoring (do not know if SIIG has this yet or not).

A/C adapter could be a wall mount with one cable to the unit.

Other Thoughts: I consider Newegg's star rating to be A-B-C-D-F with A-5, F-1. So I am giving it a D rating as it does not deserve an F rating. Definitely not an average enclosure. I have used 3 different USB3 external enclosures and found this one to be the slowest of the 3 I have tried. Whether or not the newest ASMedia control fixed the problem is unknown.

I like the weight of the unit. Felt sold, but was cheap at the same time. Did not have a slide-in connectors for the power and data that one finds on most other units. This unit uses sata and power cables! Consider that to a minor problem, as it was a little difficult to hook up the hard drive.

Loved the blue lights on the front of the case! Had a light for the fan, a power light, and a combination read/write light. Was kind of pretty.

Cannot recommend this unit. I RMA'd mine. SIIG products tend to be good; this is not one of them.

3 out of 5 eggsMixed feelings

Pros: Fast transfers, looks good

Cons: Fan started making noise after 2 months running 24/7 and (just the fan) failed after 4 months. Ironically, this replaced an Antec MX-1 that suffered a complete failure shortly after the fan started making noise.

Other Thoughts: Removed noisy fan and the HDD seems to be fine and running cool enough. 24/7 for weeks so far without incident.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works great the fan isn't loud but this works great for a single sata drive.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I moved all of my data off my computer on to one drive so I can use it on my laptop and don't have to switch all of my 500s around.
I am using a SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3EG HD203WI 2TB 5400 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5". After I formatted the drive it has worked great, its enough space and it works great with this enclosure so I am very happy.

I don't forsee any problems but if something happens I will post back and let you know.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: works great. I just installed it the Asus USB 3.0/Sata 3 controller card on it works great .. . . . amazing speed. If you deal with huge Video files like myself, this is a must get. It took me less than 11 minutes to transferred 147 Gigabyte worth of Video. ... I'm impressed with the speed .

Cons: Not really a con, but the case is a little heavy.

Other Thoughts: Just put in a 2TB hard drive in this case, which works excellent and you're ready to go. .... Transferred files in a breeze. Oh, forgot to mention it also comes with a USB 3.0 Cable.

3 out of 5 eggsAlmost Great

Pros: Fast. Cool. Quality construction.

Cons: The power cord (the section from the enclosure to the adaptor) is too short to even reach the ground when it sits at three feet. The adaptor part just hangs off of the enclosure. I would have returned it but many other adaptors from other enclosures I have meet the proper output specs. What a silly way to lessen an otherwise fine product. No detents for stacking - VERY minor complaint but it's nice to have them.
