5 out of 5 eggsA dream come true

Pros: What you want to know:

1. WD Scorpio Black 7200 RPM works great in this.

2: Using an ISO of Win7 Pro x64 from the 7200 RPM drive it installs windows (through USB 2.0 port) in 7 minutes to a 4 yr old HP DV7 laptop (laptop has an ssd)!

3. Next I tried a Samsung 830 Series MZ-7PC256D SSD, also works great in the Zalman enclosure.

4. Transferred 19.4 GB of data (small and large files) to the SSD from a home tower through e-sata in less than 3 minutes! (Home system also running a Samsung 830 Series MZ-7PC256D).

5. Tested several different bootable CD ISO’s with this and it worked with them all (and super-fast boots).

Cons: More of what you want to know:

1. This will NOT emulate cd’s in e-sata mode, ONLY in USB 2.0 mode.

2. E-sata controller must be in AHCI mode or it was not recognized.

3. The documentation for this is less than what I have written by FAR (as far as I have researched I am the ONLY one to post any of these type of results).

Other Thoughts: Back in 2005 I told every client with any tech-knowledge that I wished someone would make this EXACT product, imagine my surprise when I spotted it last week! If I had heard of this when it first released my whole family and a bunch of my tech-type friends would own one by now.

I could go on and on about how awesome this thing is, but you get the idea.

Seriously, if you bought a different external enclosure, you went terribly wrong. Well done Zalman!!!

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome drive! Fast with lots of extras!

Pros: I took a gamble with this one, but the Virtual Drive function was too good to pass up - and I'm glad I did! The Virtual Drive function works perfectly, and the drive has an LCD on it so you can move through the menus and pick the right ISO. It also shows you the current mode you're in and the drive temp.

With HD-Tach via USB 2.0 it showed an 18ms response time and a sustained read of 26MB/s - this is a fast drive! 20gb copied in 10 minutes or so.

Overall, completely happy with this purchase and would happily purchase another one when I need to!

Cons: The only con I can think of is the way that you switch modes. It uses a small jog wheel which could possibly break easily, and its slightly confusing in how you swap modes. Still, totally worth it for the features!
