Pros: No issues since I bought it 6 months ago.
Cons: No cons.
Other Thoughts: Although the connector looks different than the traditional USB2 cable. The traditional USB2 cable DOES fit this drive. The connector this uses is the standard USB3 connector, which was meant to be backwards compatible with USB2. The USB3 cable simply includes a little extension that provides room for 5 more connectors for additional data and power.

Pros: Once assembled the unit is a nice size.
Cons: Lids don't slip on easily. They catch on end piece. I had a 1G seagate drive in it and did not experience any problems. However when I tried to install a 2G drive it would not start up. Evidently the power supply in the enclosure will not support enough current for larger drive. Very disappointed.
Did you find this review helpful?
Pros: Small and Compact.
Cons: I opened this product today and the screws weren't installed. Then I found out that the screws didn't fit the holes. So I looked for some smaller screws I had stashed away in my house, and those screws didn't fit. Waist of my time! Don't buy this product unless you want to return it back :P
