4 out of 5 eggscapacity limited

Pros: compact, quiet (fanless), USB 3.0

Cons: Stated capacity is incorrect. I really am posting just to let people know that tech support (Sabrent actually responded within a day; so tha'ts nice) tells me that the EC-35UK only supports up to 2TB.

Other Thoughts: No real complaints outside of the limited capacity.

3 out of 5 eggsOK but slow

Pros: Cost effective way to turn my spare SATA drive into a portable USB backup device. Very easy to assemble once you figure it out. It comes with no instructions and the "Users Manual" is useless. Good unit for $20 bucks!

Cons: Slow... It says "Up to 5Gbps transfer speeds" on the box but it gets nowhere even close to that. I have a top of the line Origin PC with all the latest drivers and USB 3.0 firmware and this enclosure only tops out at about 83Mbps. It's a little faster than USB 2.0 but not by much.

Other Thoughts: USB 3.0 is off to a really rocky start. I wish these hardware and software people would get their act together on making it work better. I don't understand the slow deployment of this technology. It seems to be the next logical step.

4 out of 5 eggs3.5" USB 3.0 Enclosure Great!!!

Pros: Obviously that its USB 3.0 and the fact that I was able to change my 500GB internal hard drive into an external drive was awesome. Definitely faster that USB 2.0. Portable. Rather sturdy as long as your not too rough with it. Comes with a stand.

Cons: A little difficult to insert drive as the SATA cable gets scrunched up a bit to make it fit, but once its in its fine. Needs external power supply, so it takes up one and a half spaces on a power strip, but that's more or less expected with adapters and you just have to deal with it. USB 3.0 is reported to be able to do 10x the speed of 2.0, but that's only with all hardware and software being compatible, mabye not event then, at least not yet. Nevertheless, I still see around 2x to 4x normal 2.0 speeds.

Other Thoughts: Filled my needs for converting my internal drive into an external, and making it USB 3.0 at the same time.

2 out of 5 eggsDisapointing performance, bad read errors

Pros: Very basic and easy to assemble. A WD 500g SATA Caviar hard drive fit and connected fine. The screwdriver is a nice touch for the small screws.

Cons: While the USB 3.0 was fast reading from the enclosure, I kept getting drive errors and USB disconnects while trying to copy some large files (movies, photos, mp3's) to it.

Other Thoughts: I have used other Sabrent enclosures before, (an IDE 3.5", USB 2.0) with no problems, this one was very disappointing.
