3 out of 5 eggsInternals work, case design is flawed

Pros: Inexpensive, works, simple to use

Cons: hard to connect internal wiring, impossible to find a screw to secure the hard drive into the sliding bay ...and here is why, as soon as I fasten the screw to secure the hard drive in place, the bay is now too thick to slide into the enclosure, the designers must have never taken into account that screws do add a millimeter or two of thickness once they are fastened into the drive. It works without the enclosure, but is an eye sore to look at. My enclosure is basically reduced to a paper weight now.

5 out of 5 eggsBest enclosure

Pros: I've tried four different brands of enclosures, and this Antec is my favorite by a good margin. All else equal, the main difference between enclosures is materials and how easy or hard it is to put drives in. This enclosure's metal case feels more solid than plastic enclosures. The drives are easy to slide out and attach/detach, although there's the unavoidable screws to hold things together.

Cons: Only bad thing about this enclosure is the S-VIDEO-like circular power connector that can be a pain to orient correctly.

Other Thoughts: Liked it so much I bought a second one!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks for Me

Pros: Price, Antec = Quality; Gets a little warm after use, but nothing that worries me really. Have traveled with it and it has held up just fine. Easy installation. I feel cool for buying the case separately rather than from K0sTk0.

Cons: Wallwort PSU

Other Thoughts: Its a great deal all in all. You could spend more, but this should serve most peoples needs.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: Simple, sleek design, inexpensive, and I've had absolutely no problems.

Cons: none at all

Other Thoughts: I didn't want a bulky, overpriced enclosure, but if I did pay more for something I would expect some sort of vent and possibly eSata/Firewire. This does EXACTLY what I want - that's why I bought it.

2 out of 5 eggsUnreliable

Pros: When it works it works fine.

Cons: Randomly, the unit will just fail. The drive will still be spinning inside, but the drive is no longer detected in a computer. I'm not sure if this is an issue with the AC adapter on the unit or if it is something with the USB portion of the enclosure.

1 out of 5 eggsGarbage

Pros: Looks nice, easy to use.

Cons: I used this for less than an hour before it just stopped working. I thought it was my old drive, so I put a new one in and it did the same thing. When I returned it to where i bought it, (Rhymes with Trys) there were 10 others that looked like they were returned as well. Too bad, though. It was a really nice looking case for any price.

Other Thoughts: If you like wasting money and time, buy this. You're probably insane. Get checked out.
