5 out of 5 eggsWhy the complaints?

Pros: I like the on/off switch.

Works well with 320G WD blue and 1T samsung drives.

Cons: Finish scratches off easily against sharp edges.
It's like a sprayed on, soft black rubber or vinyl.
(Probably absorbs vibrations though, - very quiet)

Other Thoughts: Works fine with above drives (have not used with others)
Cable works.
Fits nicely in a Case Logic VHS-10.
Good transfer rates, even on USB2.

1 out of 5 eggsNot aluminum

Pros: I wrote that the cable was bad.
It works fine with a different cable.

Cons: Side frame is plastic, and bottom & top covers are iron.
Details says the material is aliminum, but not true.

2 out of 5 eggsSupplied cable was bad

Pros: has an on-off switch.
I liked the surface - aluminum with black matte surface.

Cons: The supplied USB 3 cable was terrible. It didn't work at all with USB 3 port. Worked only with USB 2 ports. That caused me so much confusion. First, I thought my laptop's USB 3 port was broken because laptop was brand new and this was the first USB 3 device that I attached to it. It worked with USB 2 ports, but it disconnected the hard drive every time I touched and moved a little because the connection was bad (the cause was also the cable, not the enclosure itself).

Other Thoughts: Working fine after I got a different USB 3 cable for this enclosure.
Covering screws by stickers is not a good idea for me because I sometimes want to replace an internal drive by another.

4 out of 5 eggsBe sure to use separate power supply

Pros: Does the job if separate power supply used.

Cons: Requires #00 (double-zero) phillips screwdriver to open the case. (Other cases require a #000 triple-zero tip.)

Other Thoughts: USB ports from a computer are usually limited to 300 mA of current output but hard drives require around 500 mA which is why the computer drops the drive--too much current drain which might burn up a trace on the motherboard. Make it a habit of using a separate AC power supply or a powered hub. I use Bytecc AC-HD201 5V AC adapter, Newegg # N82E16812270002.

1 out of 5 eggspoor quality

Pros: cheap

Cons: didnt work - kept disconnecting from computer. Tried on 3 computers. 2 of the 3 did not work at all. One was a windows 8 and the other was windows 7. The 3rd windows 7 computer worked for a while and then it started to disconnect and reconnect over and over.
