5 out of 5 eggsNew Model, No Sata Cables: Socket Instead

Pros: Now all I need to is set the hard drive blades gently into the socket, flip it over in your hand to insert one or more screws (especially if the drive is thinner than a WDC Caviar), close it up, and it's ready to go. a modicum of heavy padding under the top can also hold the thin drive under the top (about 1 inch square of padding) see Other Comments)

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Remember first to Tighten all screws except three on top. Then remove these three screws from top and pivot the top around on the forth to reveal the interior Five Eggs, on the new one! YIPPY DO!

4 out of 5 eggsI Just Ordered My Eighth One

Pros: Hot exterior means cool interior. The tightness helps with this, too, by limiting insulating air space. (Beware of any HDD enclosure that feels cool, or even comfortable! That one keeps the HDD hot. . . . Been there, done that.). I blow away the heat from these with a low powered fan, even USB powered (!).

I find the design delightful, in a techie sort of way, and I delight in the fact that they can stand alone vertically, without added feet. This aids greatly with cooling and space.

Cons: The construction is a bit tricky. It is good not to remove more than three screws,and on the top side only, to open. I then swivel the cover around the last screw to reveal the interior. I find that so doing, everything else stays where it should.

The sata cable is sometimes a problem:

If it is loose, I invert the HDD to realign the pressure from the cable end on the connecting blade of the HDD. Then, instead of screws, I use firm padding on about a 1 inch square not on the HDD's board. Closing the cover causes the HDD to rest firmly inside the case.

If The sata cable is broken, I connect a regular one to the HDD and run it out under the cover of the case. (maybe leaving off one screw for the thickness). If the new cable is too short, I get an adapter for sata to esata. If the far end is also esata type, I plug it into an outside port of the mobo or of a card. If it is internal sata type, I plug it directly into the mobo, or into an internal port on a card.

Other Thoughts: I like the other features so much that I tolerate the sata problems. and their work- arounds, with good humor. Still, I give it only four eggs

5 out of 5 eggsVery Good external hdd enclosure

Pros: >All metal construction
>Accomodates SATA(I, II & III) & IDE drives of any capacity
>USB2 and eSATA output connections to computer
>External in-line power supply - not a wall wart supply
>Bi-Color LED indicates read/write activity
>NO fan to create noise and fail - lots of ventilation holes
>Supplied with rubber feet and small screwdriver
>Stackable to save space - a real plus

Cons: I now own SIX of these enclosures purchased over the past year and a half or so. All work flawlessly - zero problems. The reviewers calling it cheap or poorly made probably did not own Erector sets as children. You do have to have some dexterity and a small amount of patience to get the drive in and the enclosure assembled. Once everything is TIGHT these units are SOLID and dependable. A great deal for the price. They just work!

Other Thoughts: See Cons above. I hope they keep making these enclosures for a long time to come. I will continue to purchase them. A great value and a very good enclosure. I wish everything worked as well as these enclosures.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: IDE and SATA. eSATA connection (when using a SATA drive..) Easy to open up, and swap drives if needed. Price.. Bang for the buck value here is good. No screw driver is really needed to open the case up

Cons: The materials are kind of cheap.. Sides kept falling off while installing hard drive. Its a lot larger than other 3.5" shells that I have. eSATA only works with a SATA HD

Other Thoughts: Will work great for what I intended to use it for.. Not everyday use, but to back up Hard disks when working on others computers, so the dual format is a nice add on

4 out of 5 eggsA little eSata gotcha

Pros: Works as advertised

Cons: Nowhere that I found was it mentioned (as it is in the user instructions) that the eSATA connection only works on SATA drives. PATA drives will only work on the USB connection. This would have been nice to know ahead of time.

5 out of 5 eggsAs advertised - solid operation

Pros: I have a couple of these. They have worked hard, and solidly, for me. Yeah, one could complain about the case if they want, but I find the metal construction 'friendly' and rugged - so I have no complaints there. Good all around value in my book.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Cannot really call this a con since no one provides these (that I have seen yet)... I own a number of different kinds of enclosures (collecting over the years) and swap drives often, whether at the bench or working onsite... I wish the manufacturers would add restraint tabs/loops/whatever... for removing the connectors from the drives easily to alleviate concern over constant handling of the ribbon. Not as much an issue on the sata conn, but always need to be mindful with ide connectors.

5 out of 5 eggsPerforms as advertised

Pros: It works and works well. I like the screw covers - makes swapping hard drives a lot easier than some others I have had.

Cons: If you don't tighten the screws, the metal plates can rattle a little. Also, one of the screws seemed stripped and I was unable to unfasten it; but wasn't a bit deal as it was the bottom part of the drive.

2 out of 5 eggsJunk

Pros: IDE/SATA to USB/eSATA
Simple construction
Big knurled screws to open it up

Cons: The biggest con is that I purchased it. The internal components are junk. The PCB soldering job is garbage. The board is has big burns all over it. The solder is globbed on in places. It looks like there could be some cold solder joints, and I wouldn't be surprised if there was a short or two in that mess. The components are cheap. I'm hesitant to even hook a hard drive up to it, let alone trust my data to this hack job on an ongoing basis.

Other Thoughts: The simple construction, which I actually really like, does have a caveat. The two long sides rattle a bit, but it's no huge deal. It also came with a little phillips head screwdriver, but the only phillips head screws are the two holding the PCB on. It's like they are inviting to take it off...which is a good idea.

4 out of 5 eggsDoes its job

Pros: - SATA and IDE Connectors.
- Plug n Play on 7.
- Decently Fast.

Cons: - Sharp edges (On mine anyway)
- Cheaply made slightly

Other Thoughts: Bought it to back up data from older drives was going to get an all in one 2.5" and 3.5" Sata+IDE but it was actually cheaper (And better) to buy a 2.5 and 2.5" separately. I cut my finger on the end trying to get the screws in as they don't always align right.
